Can’t Like on iTunes Ping

I’ve been trying out Apple’s iTunes Ping social network, and for the most part..it’s alright. Nothing special beyond the ability to follow your favorite artists and stay up to date with what they’re doing. It’s generally a bad experience because of how sluggish iTunes is (both Mac and Windows). That said, I don’t use it very much. If it were on a website instead, I would probably use it more often.

Show Only Children Pages on Parent Page

There is still much to be desired within WordPress when it comes to dealing with parent and children pages. The core code is there, and it’s usable, but there’s not a lot “out of the box” to play with. We’ve developed a bit of code to help make your life a little easier. Adding the code below to your functions.php file will let you remove the other children pages while on the parent page. Here are some examples of what it would like without the code, then with the code. A huge thanks goes out to Matt Martz for working …
