WORDPRESS / How to create a page that displays custom field values

we are trying to display a list of custom field values for a specific meta key, in a page. 

  • install the plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-page-widget/
  • code a new widget area to  display a specific widget in a content area of a page : 
    •    register_sidebar(array(
                      'name'=> __( 'main content', 'photography' ),
                      'id' => 'contentwidget',
                      'before_widget' => '<li id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
                      'after_widget' => '</li>',
                      'before_title' => '<h2 class="widgettitle">',
                      'after_title' => '</h2>',
    • add the sidebar where you want on your page.php template : dynamic_sidebar( 'main content' )
  • setup the wp page widget plugin to activate pages and the main content area you've just created
  • download and install the widget  http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/get-custom-field-values/
  • create a new page and use the widget interface in your page to add the list of custom field values for your meta key
  • Demonstration here, what I need now is to link custom fields values to posts : http://erwan-foto.com/photos-bretagne
  • Note : I also  tried the http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-field-list-widget/ but for some reason it does not work with wp page widget

WordPress plugin : ken burns full screen HTML5

We like the HTML 5 css animations, and the codrops tutorial give a first insight into a bright future for webmasters, via  a technology that involves  almost only css coding / harsh coding though. Anyhow I provide here a plugin for wordpress that will perform two tasks

  • shortcode [wbKenBurnsFullScreen] : displays post images as full screen background with ken burns effect
  • shortcode [wbKenBurnsFullScreenRandom] : displays images selected as 'random' and creates the full screen background effect, taking image parent  post as title and link

For the moment, it is the random code that works best as it automatically selects 4 images from media library, which is the best count of images for the effect I provide, directly inspired from the codrops tutorial.

Technically the plugin also provides additional field for images (screenshot below from erwan-foto.com)
