Are you looking for a super-simple quick reference for WP_Query and all of its parameters? Loosely described, WP_Query is how WordPress displays posts defined by a variety of parameters, and keeping that of the available parameters can be a monumental task. It’s easy to forget all that you can do with WP_Query if you aren’t working with it every single day. Of course, this brings me to this handy Gist. It’s nothing flashy, but it is a super-simple text file listing and describing all the WP_Query parameters. I’m not sure how long this will be around, so you might want to download it ASAP for reference when you need it.

WordPress is an open source blogging platform, which (amongst other things) means that everything is built out in the open. You can freely follow along or even participate in development. If you’re curious about what’s going on under the hood, the best thing to follow is the WordPress Trac. This is where all of the magic happens, bugs and features are submitted, discussed, and acted upon all through this one site. Of course, if that’s a bit too much code and you’re looking for a more toned down highlight-oriented news and discussion blog, check out the official WordPress Development Updates. Here, you can follow along on major issues or changes. Think of it a sneak peak to the future of WordPress. Follow along and learn what makes your favorite blogging platform so great.

This post written on the WeblogToolsCollection.com forums as a news submission has been well received by plugin developers that have taken notice. The article explains how to include CSS and JavaScript conditionally so that the code is not loaded on every page of the site. If you think about it, there are many plugins that only do something once in a blue moon. Table of contents, text manipulators, galleries, sliders, etc, etc. If only they loaded their frontend code strictly when necessary, most page loads would suddenly become much lighter. This technique if implemented by plugin authors sounds like it could have a significant impact on end users websites, especially when it comes to loading times. I’m always impressed with the speed of WordPress when I install a fresh copy without any plugins. WordPress loads very quickly both on the front and back ends. However, once I activate 30 or […]

Last Thursday, the WordPress core development team got together to discuss the upcoming version of WordPress. In this meeting, it was announced that WordPress 2.9 is now feature frozen meaning additional features would be postponed to the next branch. The first proposed release date of WordPress 2.9 was October 31st but that goal is not attainable. Instead, expect to see Beta 1 around October 31st with release candidates released during the month of November. Depending on what happens during the testing phase, we may see WordPress 2.9 stable released during the second half of November or early December. Expect to see details regarding how to participate in the testing process show up on the WordPress development blog within the next week or so.

Are you constantly hunting the WordPress Codex for functions and template tags? I know I spend a lot of time doing this whenever I am working on a new plugin. Andy Stratton too did the same until he created WPLookup. WPLookup will take your query and take you to the corresponding WordPress Codex documentation in the function reference and template tags reference. If your search terms are not found, it will send you directly to a documentation search for your terms. The site is very much in the nascent stages. And, I’m sure there is a lot more that can be added. One suggestion could be that instead of sending the user directly to WordPress Codex, WPLookup can generate a search results page with a link to the codex article as well a link to the function declaration in the WordPress code using PHPXref. The search results page can contain […]
