Behold Genealogy

WordPress Snippets

The idea behind WordPress Snippets is simple; to provide small snippets of code, helping you to create a magic WordPress Theme. The original documentation of WordPress is excellent, but not as straight forward as you may want. Straight forward is the lead word for WP Snippets. No talk, just Snippets.
