Contact Form 7 – doing *something* when an email has been sent

I love contact form 7, unlike a fair few others who have either purchased Gravity forms or who have gotten stuck using something like CForms which I really don’t get along with. I use it on every site I write and, with the new addition of the Flamingo plugin... read more

WooCommerce sites breaking after upgrade to 2.1

WP-Ecommerce suppress pending payment email

Hands up if you hate WP-Ecommerce. I would do both but then I wouldn’t be able to type this out. Following on from a request from a client of mine the Pending Payment email goes out just as you get to Paypal/Sagepay/Worldpay/ etc… and is normally noticed... read more

WordPress default featured image

Customising the output of the WordPress Download Manager plugin shortcode
