Create Users Automatically In WordPress

WordPress is a web application by many - often you have to create a bridge to other systems. For example, to give users a single sign-on via the web applications. Therefore, automated creating users might be necessary. Depending on which system is the leader, the data must be synchronized. From past experience, the users are usually created in WordPress, as this is not the leading system for user administration.

Remove WordPress Multisite Feature – ToDo List!

You can activate the Multisite functionality of WordPress relatively quick and it is well explaind in the backend how to do it. But not always you like to keep it as a multi site installation and therefore you have to do some measures to remove the Network function again.

Before there were also possibilities to change a Theme without changing the actual files of the theme. With the support of Child Themes this is now completely independent and we can use a theme that can be updated without a problem, and you can still realize your own ideas.

By default, the class assignment of function body_class() has already a lot of possibilities. More individuality can be reached with the title or ID.
It is certainly not worth for a traditional blog environment but for a site with little content it works pretty well. As I have implemented in this case.
