    I’m making a wp site blog + portfolio

    in my portfolio I don’t want to create posts with titles and content, but wordpress wont post empty posts. Im using custom fields.

    I search a tittle bit on google. some people suggest using css to hide title tag. but that is just a basic thing. the url still remains with title.

    also I came across a method of tricking wp by inserting a title automatically and removing later.

    the code can work for web solely design for single purpose. my problem is Im having a good developed blog and portfolio, so I can trick with functions coz they will work globally.

    this piece of code which checks the post for empty title and content can be seen here

    I can remove it for instance but its not convenience. is there any method to eliminate this check from functions.php?

    Looks like this should work:

    function skip_check() { return false; }
    add_filter('wp_insert_post_empty_content', 'skip_check');



    I tried by removing that snippet from wordpress core file.

    it worked but after publishing I wasn’t able to delete posts

    I think I’d go with titles as wordpress don’t support it officially. thats why I say its not cms. 😀
