How to back to wordpress 3.0 – Old version

I was using WordPress 3.1.3. I also used WordPress 3.1.0, 3.1.1 and 3.1.2, but all with them,  I got the image uploading problem. But in wordpress 3.0.4 (now I am using this version) is out of that problem. And now I will tell you that how to back into wordpress 3.0 version or later.  But one thing, remember, it is not easy if you have not enough idea about that as it will destroy your hole site if you miss.

Well, I did this trough my cPanel (Hosting control panel). If you have hosting control panel, open it  and go to the file manager and open the root of your wordpress directory. First, we will take a backup for the necessary files to skip any risk. Well, make a folder named "Backup" or anything you like.  Now copy the file named "wp-config.php" (Select and see the top menu of the window to get the Copy option. You may als0 get this option by right click upon that file. Choose the directory for copy on the upcoming dialog box) into the backup folder. wp-config.php contains the database name, site host, username and password  and more information of your hosting to connect with the database and run your site.  Now back to the root folder and select the wp-content to make a zip copy of that folder(See the upper menu and choose Compress). wp-content contains all the themes, plugins and media files uploaded through WordPress.  Now  make a backup of the wp-content.zip (or what folder extension you chooses for to compress the wp-content folder) Continue reading How to back to wordpress 3.0 – Old version

Remove Comment Author’s Link of WordPress without any plugin

Need to remove author's web link from wordpress? It is not easy to remove that link and I found no plug in to remove author's web link of wordpress. But I have done it without the help of any wordpress plug in. So, let us discuss about the way of removing author's web link automatically.....

You need to change some code from a php file of wordpress. Go to wordpress installation directory/folder using ftp or file manager of your cPanel.  Then open the wp-includes directory/folder. Now  locate the file called comment-template.php and download it. Make sure to make a backup of this file, I mean create a copy of this file to make sure you can upload a working copy in case you mess up.

Open the file with any code editor like Adobe Dreamweaver or notepad. Now in the file around line 147 ( wordpress Version 3.0.1 ) you would locate a function called as get_comment_author_link( $comment_ID = 0 ) . The line number might vary for wordpress versions, but the code within the function is the same. Now, we are going to modify the function to remove author's link.

Find

else
$return = "<a href='$url' rel='external nofollow' class='url'>$author</a>";

It is around line 154 to 155.  Now replace the line

$return = "<a href='$url' rel='external nofollow'  class='url'>$author</a>";

to

$return = $author;

Save the file and upload in the same directory. Try whether it is working or not!
