Quickly Search and Use Template Parts​

The site editor in WordPress 6.1 now makes it easier to discover and use template parts.

For instance, if your theme had multiple template parts that can be used in the header, then you can simply click on the template part options and select Replace.

This will bring up a modal popup where you can look for available template parts that you can use.

If you use your phone's hotspot, you can get a faster connection on your computer using USB tethering:


The app also offers reverse USB tethering (to use your computer's Internet on your phone, such as to reduce lag for online gaming).

Personally, I use Visible (a Verizon company) for mobile phone service. They include unlimited data for hotspot use. Visible is only offered in the United States, but they do provide free calling to Canada.

You can use forward slashes ( / ) instead of backward slashes ( \ ) on Windows (as is the case with Linux® and UNIX). If you use backward-slashes, the file name on Windows might be treated as a relative-path instead of an absolute-path.

The Java™ runtime environment automatically converts forward-slashes into backward-slashes on Windows.

Mac users can send selected text to an app service by right clicking and selecting "Services."

For example:

Other ways for Mac users to use app services:


Use services in apps on Mac​

Services let you use features of other apps for the task you’re doing without having to open those apps.

Use a service​

  1. On your Mac, select an item, such as a file on the desktop or text in a document.
  2. Open the app menu (to the right of the Apple menu
    2f77cc85238452e25cb517130188bf99.png
    ), choose Services, then choose a service.

Change the services available in apps​

  1. On your Mac, choose Apple menu
    2f77cc85238452e25cb517130188bf99.png
    > System Settings, click Keyboard
    05f95b27cb8a80f8cb48fa2952fe2bdc.png
    in the sidebar, then click Keyboard Shortcuts on the right. (You may need to scroll down.)

  2. In the sidebar, click Services, then select items to make them available in the Services menu or deselect items to remove them.
    Items appear in an app’s Services menu only if they’re relevant to the app or task.
You can create keyboard shortcuts for services so you don’t have to use an app’s Service menu.

If you can’t use a service​

  • If you don’t have permission to open the app that’s providing the service, you need to log in as an administrator to use the service.
  • If an app is missing or can’t be opened, try searching for it on your Mac and opening it. Then try using the service again.
  • If the app is in the Trash, select it and choose File > Put Back. Then try using the service again.

"I'm a hiker. And so, I'm frequently out in places where there is no service. The national parks are largely not covered by cellular service. And so, this happens to people all the time. And it feels so great to be able to talk to a satellite hundreds of miles away, traveling at 15,000 miles an hour."

~ Tim Cook, CEO
