We want to update our contact page with the number of pets we currently have, which means we'll need to dynamically count our pets. We can use the
get_pets() function to get us that information, but we're going to have to learn how to load the function from one file for use on another file. We're going to create a new home for our functions, in a functions.php file, to keep them centralized, and then we will use the
require statement to use that file when we need it. We'll also discuss the other statement you can use in this instance—
include_once—and why we're choosing
require over the others.
Tip: Why is not closing your PHP tags better when you don’t have to? Great question — see StackOverflow: Why would one omit the close tag?
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
