How to Increase the WordPress Memory Limit

1. Edit your wp-config.php file and enter something like:

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '96M');

WordPress memory can be different to the server – you need to set this regardless of server memory settings

http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP

2. If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini
If your line shows 32M try 64M:

memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (64MB)

3. If you don’t have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:

php_value memory_limit 64M

4. If none of the above works then talk to your hosting provider.

Disable digg digg on custom post types

Digg digg by buffer is a great plugin for adding social links to posts but it doesn’t play very nice with custom post types.

Here is a way to hide the social buttons:


function radium_exclude_digg_digg() {

if ( get_post_type() !== 'post' ) {
remove_filter( 'the_excerpt', 'dd_hook_wp_content' );
remove_filter( 'the_content', 'dd_hook_wp_content' );
}

}
add_action('template_redirect', 'radium_exclude_digg_digg');

This will hide the buttons on ALL custom post types. To hide them on a specific post type, say one called ‘portfolio’, use:


function radium_exclude_from_portfolio_digg_digg() {

if ( get_post_type() == 'portfolio' ) {
remove_filter( 'the_excerpt', 'dd_hook_wp_content' );
remove_filter( 'the_content', 'dd_hook_wp_content' );
}

}
add_action('template_redirect', 'radium_exclude_from_portfolio_digg_digg');
