How to Improve FeedWordpress

FeedWordPress is the best free plugin to syndicate posts from WordPress RSS feeds. Syndication is not the best practice, but it suits the needs of a client and their site network.

However, there is some minor issues. There is no built in duplicate post detection. This can create a mess when syndicating multiple feeds that may contain the same posts. Also, a default category is not assigned to posts if there is no matching category on your site. Place the below filter in your themes functions.php file to correct these issues.

Lastly, we don’t want search engines to index these articles, they aren’t original content on our site. I also make use of Yoast WordPress SEO, we’ll use that to our advantage.

Add a Custom Login Logo to WordPress

Below is all you need to customise the login page of WordPress. Add it to the bottom of your functions.php.

There are plugins available that perform this task for you, but I don’t think it’s necessary to add a plugin just for this.

Transparent PNG format images work best.

Update 2017

I have upgraded this script to use the Site Icon. You just need to upload your image using Appearance > Customise > Site Identity.

Update 2019

WordPress deprecated ‘login_headertitle’ in favour of ‘login_headertext’.

The fix is simple. Just change … to … in the filter.
