How to Add Title Attribute in WordPress Navigation Menus

Recently, one of our readers asked if there’s a way to add title attribute in WordPress menus? Title attribute allows you to provide extra information about a link. It often appears as tooltip text when the mouse moves over the link. In this article, we will show you how to add title attribute in WordPress navigation menus.

How to Add the Title Attributes in WordPress Menus

Why Use Title Attribute in Menus?

Title attribute is an HTML attribute that can be added to any element, but it is most commonly used with links and images.

It allows you to provide additional information about the link or the image. See our guide on the difference between what’s the difference between image alt text vs title.

Typically web browsers display the title attribute on mouseover. This allows users to see where this link will take them before they click on it.

Screen readers may also read title attribute, but many screen readers will ignore it and will only read the anchor text.

Some SEO experts believe that it is not useful while others claim it is useful for SEO as it allows you to provide more context.

WordPress removed title attribute from insert link popup in version 4.2. However, you can easily add the title and rel=nofollow options in insert link popup.

Having said that, let’s take a look at how to add title attribute in WordPress navigation menus.

Adding Title Attribute in WordPress Navigation Menu Items

First you need to visit Appearance » Menus page and click on the ‘Screen Options‘ tab in the top right corner of the screen.

Enable title attribute for navigation menus in WordPress

This will bring down a menu where you need to click on the check box next to Title Attribute option.

After that, simply scroll down and click on any menu item in your existing menu to expand it. You will now see the title attribute field.

Add title attribute to the menu item

You can now add the text you want to use as title and then repeat it for all menu items in your navigation menu.

Don’t forget to click on the save menu button to store your changes.

You can now visit your website and take your mouse to a link in navigation menu. You will see the title attribute displayed as tooltip.

Uber’s Mildly Helpful Data Tool Could Help Cities Fix Streets

Uber has a rocky history with city governments—to put it averagely. Due to the fact ridesharing giant has spread its solutions throughout the world, it offers jumped into battles over regulations that could curtail its activities. The newest battlefield is nyc, where Uber is refusing Mayor Bill de Blasio’s need so it give the city data on when and in which it falls down every passenger.

Now, Uber is making one thing of a peace offering. The organization is introducing a new solution that could assist towns master their traffic. it is called Uber motion, and it uses info on the vast amounts of rides Uber has completed. It’s free, open to anybody who would like to use it—today that’s limited by choose planning agencies and researchers—and lets users track vehicle travel times between any two points in a city whenever you want of time. It really seems pretty helpful.

Boston_gif.gif

Built by way of a group around 10 designers in the last nine months, motion now provides information for Manila, Sydney, and Washington, DC—with dozens more cities in the future before it launches toward public in mid-February, and ultimately it’ll consist of data for every town that Uber, returning to very early 2016. Areas where Uber doesn’t offer enough trips to create dependable and anonymized data are greyed down.

“We don’t manage streets. We don’t plan infrastructure,” claims Andrew Salzberg, Uber’s chief of transport policy. “So why have these items bottled up when it can offer enormous value on metropolitan areas we’re employed in?”

It’s true that localities frequently don’t have the resources to obtain that information themselves. Physical sensors are high priced, probe cars can’t be every where at once, and information from business Inrix, which arises from commercial automobiles, will adhere to major thoroughfares. But if municipal authorities had the numbers, they could be capable spot islands in which transportation times are particularly rough, to discover spikes in travel times because of lack of infrastructure or just about any problem. But … not a lot of else. “Beyond that, I’m not sure if it is such a game changer,” claims Kevin Heaslip, a transport planner at Virginia Tech.

What planners actually want to understand, Heaslip says, is where people begin and end most of their trips. Understanding drive patterns provides a better notion of where you can concentrate resources, whether it’s improving roadways or accumulating public transportation. The US Department of Transportation tries to get that information using its nationwide domestic Travel Survey (those selected to participate get a type within the mail, plus $20 thank-you), nevertheless the ubiquity of Uber’s data would be a massive enhancement, Heaslip states. “That will be extremely helpful.” However it’s additionally helpful for Uber to hang onto the commercial advantage that comes with keeping that valuable data proprietary—so don’t hold your breathing.

Uber’s perhaps not the only business sharing the data its solutions generate. Through its “Connected people” system, Waze works together urban centers all over the world, exchanging user driving info for real-time and advance notice of construction and road closures to hold its maps. Cycling software Strava peddles data to towns and cities eager to know in which their residents are riding.

They’re part of a growing trend which personal organizations match their gobs of information with public agencies’ regulatory powers. Uber could be prepared to fight, but business can get easier once the neighborhood authorities are glad to really have the company around.

Salzberg claims he’s considering incorporating more capability to Movement while the task moves forward. Simply don’t expect Uber to give NYC—or anybody else—the info they really would like.

How to Build Beautiful 3-D Fractals Out of the Simplest Equations

If you came across an animal in the wild and wanted to learn more about it, there are a few things you might do: You might watch what it eats, poke it to see how it reacts, and even dissect it if you got the chance.

Mathematicians are not so different from naturalists. Rather than studying organisms, they study equations and shapes using their own techniques. They twist and stretch mathematical objects, translate them into new mathematical languages, and apply them to new problems. As they find new ways to look at familiar things, the possibilities for insight multiply.

That’s the promise of a new idea from two mathematicians: Laura DeMarco, a professor at Northwestern University, and Kathryn Lindsey, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Chicago. They begin with a plain old polynomial equation, the kind grudgingly familiar to any high school math student: f(x) = x2 – 1. Instead of graphing it or finding its roots, they take the unprecedented step of transforming it into a 3-D object.

With polynomials, “everything is defined in the two-dimensional plane,” Lindsey said. “There isn’t a natural place a third dimension would come into it until you start thinking about these shapes Laura and I are building.”

The 3-D shapes that they build look strange, with broad plains, subtle bends and a zigzag seam that hints at how the objects were formed. DeMarco and Lindsey introduce the shapes in a forthcoming paper in the Arnold Mathematical Journal, a new publication from the Institute for Mathematical Sciences at Stony Brook University. The paper presents what little is known about the objects, such as how they’re constructed and the measurements of their curvature. DeMarco and Lindsey also explain what they believe is a promising new method of inquiry: Using the shapes built from polynomial equations, they hope to come to understand more about the underlying equations—which is what mathematicians really care about.

Breaking Out of Two Dimensions

In mathematics, several motivating factors can spur new research. One is the quest to solve an open problem, such as the Riemann hypothesis. Another is the desire to build mathematical tools that can be used to do something else. A third—the one behind DeMarco and Lindsey’s work—is the equivalent of finding an unidentified species in the wild: One just wants to understand what it is. “These are fascinating and beautiful things that arise very naturally in our subject and should be understood!” DeMarco said by email, referring to the shapes.

“It’s sort of been in the air for a couple of decades, but they’re the first people to try to do something with it,” said Curtis McMullen, a mathematician at Harvard University who won the Fields Medal, math’s highest honor, in 1988. McMullen and DeMarco started talking about these shapes in the early 2000s, while she was doing graduate work with him at Harvard. DeMarco then went off to do pioneering work applying techniques from dynamical systems to questions in number theory, for which she will receive the Satter Prize—awarded to a leading female researcher—from the American Mathematical Society on January 5.

Meanwhile, in 2010 William Thurston, the late Cornell University mathematician and Fields Medal winner, heard about the shapes from McMullen. Thurston suspected that it might be possible to take flat shapes computed from polynomials and bend them to create 3-D objects. To explore this idea, he and Lindsey, who was then a graduate student at Cornell, constructed the 3-D objects from construction paper, tape and a precision cutting device that Thurston had on hand from an earlier project. The result wouldn’t have been out of place at an elementary school arts and crafts fair, and Lindsey admits she was kind of mystified by the whole thing.

“I never understood why we were doing this, what the point was and what was going on in his mind that made him think this was really important,” said Lindsey. “Then unfortunately when he died, I couldn’t ask him anymore. There was this brilliant guy who suggested something and said he thought it was an important, neat thing, so it’s natural to wonder ‘What is it? What’s going on here?’”

In 2014 DeMarco and Lindsey decided to see if they could unwind the mathematical significance of the shapes.

A Fractal Link to Entropy

To get a 3-D shape from an ordinary polynomial takes a little doing. The first step is to run the polynomial dynamically—that is, to iterate it by feeding each output back into the polynomial as the next input. One of two things will happen: either the values will grow infinitely in size, or they’ll settle into a stable, bounded pattern. To keep track of which starting values lead to which of those two outcomes, mathematicians construct the Julia set of a polynomial. The Julia set is the boundary between starting values that go off to infinity and values that remain bounded below a given value. This boundary line—which differs for every polynomial—can be plotted on the complex plane, where it assumes all manner of highly intricate, swirling, symmetric fractal designs.

If you shade the region bounded by the Julia set, you get the filled Julia set. If you use scissors and cut out the filled Julia set, you get the first piece of the surface of the eventual 3-D shape. To get the second, DeMarco and Lindsey wrote an algorithm. That algorithm analyzes features of the original polynomial, like its degree (the highest number that appears as an exponent) and its coefficients, and outputs another fractal shape that DeMarco and Lindsey call the “planar cap.”

“The Julia set is the base, like the southern hemisphere, and the cap is like the top half,” DeMarco said. “If you glue them together you get a shape that’s polyhedral.”

The algorithm was Thurston’s idea. When he suggested it to Lindsey in 2010, she wrote a rough version of the program. She and DeMarco improved on the algorithm in their work together and “proved it does what we think it does,” Lindsey said. That is, for every filled Julia set, the algorithm generates the correct complementary piece.

The filled Julia set and the planar cap are the raw material for constructing a 3-D shape, but by themselves they don’t give a sense of what the completed shape will look like. This creates a challenge. When presented with the six faces of a cube laid flat, one could intuitively know how to fold them to make the correct 3-D shape. But, with a less familiar two-dimensional surface, you’d be hard-pressed to anticipate the shape of the resulting 3-D object.

“There’s no general mathematical theory that tells you what the shape will be if you start with different types of polygons,” Lindsey said.

Mathematicians have precise ways of defining what makes a shape a shape. One is to know its curvature. Any 3-D object without holes has a total curvature of exactly 4π; it’s a fixed value in the same way any circular object has exactly 360 degrees of angle. The shape—or geometry—of a 3-D object is completely determined by the way that fixed amount of curvature is distributed, combined with information about distances between points. In a sphere, the curvature is distributed evenly over the entire surface; in a cube, it’s concentrated in equal amounts at the eight evenly spaced vertices.

A unique attribute of Julia sets allows DeMarco and Lindsey to know the curvature of the shapes they’re building. All Julia sets have what’s known as a “measure of maximal entropy,” or MME. The MME is a complicated concept, but there is an intuitive (if slightly incomplete) way to think about it. First, picture a two-dimensional filled Julia set on the plane. Then picture a point on the same plane but very far outside the Julia set’s boundary (infinitely far, in fact). From that distant location the point is going to take a random walk across two-dimensional space, meandering until it strikes the Julia set. Wherever it first strikes the Julia set is where it comes to rest.

The MME is a way of quantifying the fact that the meandering point is more likely to strike certain parts of the Julia set than others. For example, the meandering point is more likely to strike a spike in the Julia set that juts out into the plane than it is to intersect with a crevice tucked into a region of the set. The more likely the meandering point is to hit a point on the Julia set, the higher the MME is at that point.

In their paper, DeMarco and Lindsey demonstrated that the 3-D objects they build from Julia sets have a curvature distribution that’s exactly proportional to the MME. That is, if there’s a 25 percent chance the meandering point will hit a particular place on the Julia set first, then 25 percent of the curvature should also be concentrated at that point when the Julia set is joined with the planar cap and folded into a 3-D shape.

“If it was really easy for the meandering point to hit some area on our Julia set we’d want to have a lot of curvature at the corresponding point on the 3-D object,” Lindsey said. “And if it was harder to hit some area on our Julia set, we’d want the corresponding area in the 3-D object to be kind of flat.”

This is useful information, but it doesn’t get you as far as you’d think. If given a two-dimensional polygon, and told exactly how its curvature should be distributed, there’s still no mathematical way to identify exactly where you need to fold the polygon to end up with the right 3-D shape. Because of this, there’s no way to completely anticipate what that 3-D shape will look like.

“We know how sharp and pointy the shape has to be, in an abstract, theoretical sense, and we know how far apart the crinkly regions are, again in an abstract, theoretical sense, but we have no idea how to visualize it in three dimensions,” DeMarco explained in an email.

She and Lindsey have evidence of the existence of a 3-D shape, and evidence of some of that shape’s properties, but no ability yet to see the shape. They are in a position similar to that of astronomers who detect an unexplained stellar wobble that hints at the existence of an exoplanet: The astronomers know there has to be something else out there and they can estimate its mass. Yet the object itself remains just out of view.

A Folding Strategy

Thus far, DeMarco and Lindsey have established basic details of the 3-D shape: They know that one 3-D object exists for every polynomial (by way of its Julia set), and they know the object has a curvature exactly given by the measure of maximal entropy. Everything else has yet to be figured out.

In particular, they’d like to develop a mathematical understanding of the “bending laminations,” or lines along which a flat surface can be folded to create a 3-D object. The question occurred early on to Thurston, too, who wrote to McMullen in 2010, “I wonder how hard it is to compute or characterize the pair of bending laminations, for the inside and the outside, and what they might tell us about the geometry of the Julia set.”

In this, DeMarco and Lindsey’s work is heavily influenced by the mid 20th-century mathematician Aleksandr Aleksandrov. Aleksandrov established that there is only one unique way of folding a given polygon to get a 3-D object. He lamented that it seemed impossible to mathematically calculate the correct folding lines. Today, the best strategy is often to make a best guess about where to fold the polygon—and then to get out scissors and tape to see if the estimate is right.

“Kathryn and I spent hours cutting out examples and gluing them ourselves,” DeMarco said.

DeMarco and Lindsey are currently trying to describe the folding lines on their particular class of 3-D objects, and they think they have a promising strategy. “Our working conjecture is that the folding lines, the bending laminations, can be completely described in terms of certain dynamical properties,” DeMarco said. Put another way, they hope that by iterating the underlying polynomial in the right way, they’ll be able to identify the set of points along which the folding line occurs.

From there, possibilities for exploration are numerous. If you know the folding lines associated to the polynomial f(x) = x2– 1, you might then ask what happens to the folding lines if you change the coefficients and consider f(x) = x2 – 1.1. Do the folding lines of the two polynomials differ a little, a lot or not at all?

“Certain polynomials might have similar bending laminations, and that would tell us all these polynomials have something in common, even if on the surface they don’t look like they have anything in common,” Lindsey said.

It’s a bit early to think about all of this, however. DeMarco and Lindsey have found a systematic way to think about polynomials in 3-D terms, but whether that perspective will answer important questions about those polynomials is unclear.

“I would even characterize it as being sort of playful at this stage,” McMullen said, adding, “In a way that’s how some of the best mathematical research proceeds—you don’t know what something is going to be good for, but it seems to be a feature of the mathematical landscape.”

How to Find Which Files to Edit in WordPress Theme

Recently, one of our readers asked how do you find which files to edit in their WordPress theme? If you are new to WordPress theme development and want to customize your theme, then you need to learn which template files in your theme you need to edit. In this article, we will show you how to easily find which files to edit in WordPress theme.

How to find which WordPress theme files to edit

Template Files in WordPress Themes

WordPress themes control how your website looks to your users. Each theme contains several template files which control the appearance of a particular section or page in your WordPress theme.

For example, single.php file controls the appearance of single posts on your website. It is not the only file to do that.

If your theme does not have a single.php file, then WordPress will look for alternate templates like index.php to display the page.

Most beginners are not familiar with template hierarchy in WordPress. This makes it harder for them to figure out which files to edit when they want to customize their themes.

Having said that, let’s see how to easily find out which files to edit in your WordPress theme.

Finding Template Files in WordPress Themes

First thing you need to do is install and activate the What The File plugin. For more details, see our step by step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

The plugin works out of the box, and there are no settings for you to configure.

Upon activation, you need to visit your website and you will notice a new ‘What the file’ menu in WordPress admin bar.

What the file menu in WordPress admin bar

Now you need to just take your mouse over to the menu item, and it will display a drop down menu listing the template files used to display this page.

Template files used to display this page

Clicking on the file name will take you to the default WordPress file editor where you can edit that particular file.

However, we do not recommend using WordPress file editor to edit theme files because there is no undo option. If you accidentally lock yourself out of your website, then you would have to use a FTP client. That’s why we always using a FTP client and plain text editor to edit your files.

Making direct changes to your WordPress theme is also a bad idea. Those changes will disappear when you update your theme.

If you are just adding some CSS, then you can add it as custom CSS in WordPress. For all other changes you should create a child theme.

‘What The File plugin’ can help you locate the theme files that you need to copy and edit in your child theme.

Note: The menu item added by the plugin in the admin bar will be visible to all logged in users, and it has a link to an external site. You should only use this plugin in development environment.

We hope this article helped you learn how to find which files to edit in WordPress themes. You may also want to see our guide on how to test your WordPress theme against latest standards

8 Wonderful Games you may have Missed in 2016

2016 was therefore jam-packed with great games that you’d be forgiven in the event that you missed some. Like, say these eight gems. Several could have effortlessly been on our Games of the Year list in their own personal right, but we picked these in particular since they deserve more attention than they got. Most of them are tiny, experimental, and extremely creative—any mix of which may explain why they slipped past the majority of the game-playing public. If you’re wanting something astonishing, or personal, or initial, here you get.

Pony Island

Pony Island is really a journey. Exactly what starts as a jaunt through a buggy children’s game eventually ends up as a cosmic showdown over a haunted computer which may actually end up being the gateway to hell. Blending genres, meta-gaming conceits, and daring humor, Daniel Mullins’ experimental PC game the most surprising what to happen in 2016. It had been one of the primary, too: its early January launch means it’s most likely been very long forgotten by all of the folks cooking up year-end lists like these. Don’t sleep on it—just be prepared to be messed with.

A woman, her dog, plus Southern united states of america that’s finally succumbed on flooding; The Flame inside Flood merges the success game genre having devotion to Southern Americana. The Molasses Flood’s debut game is haunted by Flannery O’Connor, decrepit churches, and howling wolves. A killer bluegrass sound recording rounds out an event that’s as lush because it is hopeless. It’s a irritating game, become reasonable, and falls into lots of the exact same pitfalls that survival games are acclimatized to, including artificial scarcity and unpredictable spikes in difficulty. All the same, few games capture the aesthetic sensibilities for the American South quite like this.
