Include category id in body_class() and post_class()

Use this code on your themes functions.php to add current category id on body and post

function category_id_class($classes) {
	global $post;
	foreach ((get_the_category($post->ID)) as $category)
		$classes[] = 'cat-' . $category->cat_ID . '-id';
	return $classes;
add_filter('post_class', 'category_id_class');
add_filter('body_class', 'category_id_class');

Get custom post count in custom taxonomy

To get total custom post count of a custom taxonomy use the follow code

$args = array(
    'post_type' => 'post type name here',
    'post_status' => 'published',
    'taxonomy name here' => 'slug of the category under taxonomy',
    'numberposts' => -1
echo $num = count( get_posts( $args ) );

For instance, if you had a custom taxonomy called “product_category” and wanted to only show posts from the “manes” product_category you would use the below code.

$args = array(
    'post_type' => 'product',
    'post_status' => 'published',
    'product_category' => 'manes',
    'numberposts' => -1
echo $num = count( get_posts( $args ) );

Set a maximum upload count for users on a specific user role

Use the following code to limit 10 upload for specific role

add_filter( 'wp_handle_upload_prefilter', 'limit_uploads_for_user_roles' );

function limit_uploads_for_user_roles( $file ) {
  $user = wp_get_current_user();
  // add the role you want to limit in the array
  $limit_roles = array('contributor');
  $filtered = apply_filters( 'limit_uploads_for_roles', $limit_roles, $user );
  if ( array_intersect( $limit_roles, $user->roles ) ) {
    $upload_count = get_user_meta( $user->ID, 'upload_count', true ) ? : 0;
    $limit = apply_filters( 'limit_uploads_for_user_roles_limit', 10, $user, $upload_count, $file );
    if ( ( $upload_count + 1 ) > $limit ) {
      $file['error'] = __('Upload limit has been reached for this account!', 'yourtxtdomain');
    } else {
      update_user_meta( $user->ID, 'upload_count', $upload_count + 1 );
  return $file;

This action will fire when user delete attachment

add_action('delete_attachment', 'decrease_limit_uploads_for_user');

function decrease_limit_uploads_for_user( $id ) {
   $user = wp_get_current_user();
   // add the role you want to limit in the array
   $limit_roles = array('contributor');
   $filtered = apply_filters( 'limit_uploads_for_roles', $limit_roles, $user );
   if ( array_intersect( $limit_roles, $user->roles ) ) {
     $post = get_post( $id);
     if ( $post->post_author != $user->ID ) return;
     $count = get_user_meta( $user->ID, 'upload_count', true ) ? : 0;
     if ( $count ) update_user_meta( $user->ID, 'upload_count', $count - 1 );

Best ways to detect IE browser

IE6 is a worse dream for every web developers. Good news is that Software giant Microsoft has released a new website with the expressed aim of killing off its Internet Explorer 6 browser.

Still we have to deal with IE7 to IE9

Here is some way to cut down your development time by easily detecting IE.

IE Conditional Comments

It is the most commonly used to fix the IE bugs for specific versions (IE6, IE7, IE8,IE9)

// Target all version of IE
<!--[if IE]>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="all-ie.css" />
//Target everything except IE
<!--[if !IE]><!-->
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="not-ie.css" />
//Target IE 6 only
<!--[if IE 6]>
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ie6.css" />
//Target IE 7 only
<!--[if IE 7]>
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ie7.css">
//Target IE 8 and lower
<!--[if lt IE 9]>
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ie8-and-down.css" />
<!--[if lte IE 8]>
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ie8-and-down.css" />
//Target IE 8 and higher 
<!--[if gt IE 7]>
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ie8-and-up.css" />
<!--[if gte IE 8]>
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ie8-and-up.css" />

CSS Rules Specific

Its an way if you just want to do small changes on you css file in a quick way.

.wrapper {
background: red; /* standard */
background: green\9; /* IE 8 and below */
*background: blue; /* IE 7 and below */
_background: black; /* IE 6 */

Conditional HTML Class

Paul Irish found a way and it doesn’t cause any validation errors! I think this is best.

<!--[if lt IE 7 ]> <html class="ie6"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if IE 7 ]> <html class="ie7"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if IE 8 ]> <html class="ie8"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if IE 9 ]> <html class="ie9"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if (gt IE 9)|!(IE)]><!--> <html> <!--<![endif]-->

Detect HTML5 Geolocation Support

Geolocation is the art of figuring out where you are in the world and (optionally) sharing that information with people you trust.
To check if the user browser support Geolocation you can use any of the following techniques:

Technique #1:

By using a JavaScript junction.

function supports_geolocation() {
  return !!navigator.geolocation;

Technique #2:

you can use Modernizr to detect support for the geolocation API.

if (Modernizr.geolocation) {
  // let's find out where you are!
} else {
  // no native geolocation support available 
  // maybe try Gears or another third-party solution
