Demystifying Object-Oriented PHP for WordPress Developers

Demystifying Object-Oriented PHP for WordPress Developers

Community | torquemag.io | 12 hours ago

If you’re just starting out as a developer, and you’re learning PHP through WordPress, you might be intimidated by the idea of object-oriented programming (OOP), but the reality is you’ve probably already seen it in use. For example, have you ever retrieved the ID of a current post like this:
global $post;r $id = $post->ID;
1
2
global $post;r
$id = $post->ID;
That’s object-oriented programing. You might not know the terminology, but what you’ve done in the first line is get the current post as an object of the standard class. In the second line you get the value of that class’s property ID.
Another example of where you’ve probably seen object-oriented PHP is when using WP_Query.
Here is a common use of WP_Query:
$args = array( 'post_type' => 'clothing', 'tag' => 'hat' ); $query = new WP_Query( $args ); if ( $query->have_posts() ) { while ( $query->have_posts() ) { $query->the_post(); echo '' . get_the_title() . ''; } echo ' '; }

Ultimate Guide to Develop Your First WordPress Plugin

The best thing about WordPress is it can be customized and extended with plug-ins. Developing WordPress plug-in seems like a difficult task; however it is actually simpler than you may think. In this post, we are going to teach you how to develop WordPress plug-in with few simple steps. Before beginning with development task, I'm providing information about what actually WordPress plug-in is. Let me tell you something:
Actually WordPress' first plugin supported version was WordPress 1.2 Mingus. And the first plugin was developed on Monday 19 April 2004 by Dean Allen. The name of that plugin was This is Textile, A Humane Web Text Generator.
Ahead, WP plugin is a PHP script that customize and extend the native functionality of WordPress. Installing flexible Plug-in API in your WordPress, you will enjoy many advantages like:

Why It's Important to Say No to Your Support Customers

Community | wpsitecare.com | 8 hours ago

How do you politely say “teaching you CSS and PHP is outside the scope of theme support” without sounding rude/unhelpful? — carrie dils (@cdils) August 4, 2014
I saw this tweet from Carrie some time last week, and the myriad of replies that followed. Everything from LMGTFY to simply explaining it’s outside the standard theme support. The question was more about tone than anything, but it got me thinking about the importance of clear, friendly communication in support, without jeopardizing your core customer support values and policies.
There’s a lot of gray area and it’s a very fine line between delivering in a big way, and giving away your business.
At WP Site Care we walk that tightrope every single day, and it’s a constant balancing act. Here are a few thoughts I came up with regarding when to say “no” to your customers, and why it’s important.
Your Time is Valuable, and so is your Client’s
At the end of the day, support is a service role. It’s really important to respect that and know that the people who are paying to have their problems solved, deserve a great attitude on the other end of their communications. We can leave snarky replies up to the internal IT departments, but we

Introducing plugin icons in the plugin installer

Some great movement forward on the plugin installer UI. What do you think of it?

Introducing plugin icons in the plugin installer

Plugins | make.wordpress.org | 9 hours ago

WordPress 4.0 comes with a redesigned plugin installer. Just now we’ve added one of the finishing touches to this project — plugin icons. Plugin authors, If your plugin is compatible with WordPress 4.0, it only takes a few moments to change a readme “Tested up to:” value to 4.0. Compatibility information is prominently shown in the new plugin installer, so you’ll definitely want to update this value. For your plugin to stand out, you’ll also want to give your plugin an icon. Read on…
Beautiful, auto-generated icons
Default icons are generated using the GeoPattern library by Jason Long of GitHub. If you have a banner image, it is automatically sampled to determine the primary color for the pattern, using Tonesque from @matveb. (Cool, huh?)
Making your own icon
Plugin icons are 128 pixels square. HiDPI (retina) icons are supported at 256 pixels square. Like banners, these go into your /assets directory and can be either a PNG or JPG. So just create assets/icon-128x128.(png|jpg) and/or assets/icon-256x256.(png|jpg) and you have an icon.
You also have another option: SVG. Vectors are perfect for icons like this, as they can be scaled to any size and the file itself is small. For an SVG

The Best WordPress Caching Plugins and Why Testing Them is So Important

Plugins | premium.wpmudev.org | 17 hours ago

Reducing the page loading time of your website pages improves your visitor’s user experience and reduces the chance of them hitting the back button on their browser. Search engines such as Google have also confirmed the speed of a website is a contributing factor in how they rank it in their search results, therefore it pays to have a fast loading website. There are a number of ways in which you can improve the speed of a WordPress website, however a caching plugin will make the biggest difference. Caching is the process of creating a static HTML page of every page on your website. This means that visitors don’t need to retrieve data from your database, or execute PHP code, in order to display your page.
As a result of this, the number of your requests from your server greatly decreases. This also lowers CPU load and reduces the risk of bottlenecking.
Caching plugins boast many other features that can improve your page speed. These include CSS, HTML, and Javascript file minification, deferring the loading of Javascript to the end of pages, and GZIP compression. Some caching plugins also offer support for content delivery networks (CDNs) so that you can reduce server response times.

Everything Is Bloated, Nothing Is Good

Developers are quick assert that everything is bloated. That is, they complain that certain utilities are too much. I don't think that's the case.

Everything Is Bloated, Nothing Is Good

Community | tommcfarlin.com | 10 hours ago

One of the things that’s becoming more and more common place regarding front end frameworks, utilities, or applications is the use of the phrase “it’s bloated” followed by an argument as to why we should dismiss it. No, this isn’t something that’s new, but it’s something that’s becoming appears to be becoming more mainstream – at least as far as I can tell – in how people describe the tools, apps, frameworks, libraries, and other tools that they work with today, or have worked with at some point in the past.
Obviously, this isn’t to say that nothing is bloated – I mean, I’ve written enough articles on the idea on “decisions, not options” and on how things should be more focused on a single niche – but sometimes I think that we often write off certain utilities as being “bloated” when that’s not exactly the case.
Just because something has a number of features that you don’t use doesn’t make it bloated.
Everything Is Bloated
Before actually determining if something is bloated or not, it’s helpful to actually know what the term means, right? One such definition is:
excessive in size or amount.
If that’s the benchmark by which we’re evaluating software, then that’s a tough call.

Cleaning Up WordPress? Put These 10 On Your Checklist

2) Update WordPress Core. Is keeping your WordPress core software updated really that important? Yes, yes it is. Writing the important of updates like this could take an entire post, but we’ll save that for another time. Just be sure you back-up you website before any and all updates you do. This will save you on the off chance something goes wrong.

Conversion is a concept that all website owners love, and yet, it alludes many. Creating content on your blog is an important part to boosting conversion, however, the reason why so many are struggling with converting traffic into customers or subscribers is because they aren’t really writing for it.

Trend Watch: Expanding and Contracting Headers

Themes | getwebtips.com | 20 hours ago

When a new design feature makes its way into one WordPress theme, it doesn’t take long for it to gain traction and spread like wildfire through the rest of the theme development community. The latest WordPress theme trend that seems to be taking off right about now is expanding and contracting header menu areas (for want of a better name). This follows on from the fixed/floating header menu trend that while useful, was probably due a refresh in the fast passed world of theme development.
You can see it used in anger on many sites now including the PushUp desktop notifications service website, and if you are looking for a quality theme with this feature then the Centric Pro Genesis child theme from StudioPress.
Personally I find this animated feature a little distracting – what do you think?

Small Security Vulnerability in Disqus WordPress Plugin

Community | torquemag.io | 3 days ago

As some of you may have heard, a number of CSRF (Cross-site Request Forgery) vulnerabilities were discovered in the Disqus plugin for WordPress by Nik Cubrilovic not too long ago. The biggest of these issues was unfiltered, potentially harmful data being passed straight to the database without proper sanitization. Though this was being filtered on output, Disqus’s debug mode could potentially be used to extract this raw data and inject harmful code. There were also some issues with nonce checks on various POST requests and a vulnerability in the plugin’s upgrade script. Luckily, the Disqus team moved very quickly to patch these vulnerabilities and released two subsequent updates since June, which addressed these issues.
Over the weekend, researcher Voxel@night discovered an additional vulnerability in the plugin, though a far less intrusive one. While all of the POST requests that are being made to the plugin were addressed with nonce checks in the latest update of the plugin, GET requests still remain open to a CSRF attack. What’s the difference? POST requests are far more harmful, allowing users to inject potentially malicious code straight into the database. GET requests can only

Many freelance designers, web design companies and bloggers alike, create and manage multiple WordPress sites.
For someone like me who runs, not only my own web design company, but who also helps maintain many of the ones that we have built, I know that saving and organizing WordPress Usernames and Passwords is a real pain!
When a client has an issue with a site, I have to track down the username and password and tend to discover that they’ve changed it. With that being the case in the past, I find that I have to wait for them to get me that information before I can even begin fixing the issue or just simply going through the motions of their monthly website maintenance.
Even if you’re not a designer and you simply run multiple blogs or sites for yourself, I’m sure you can attest to similar feelings of frustration. Thankfully, there have been other developers out there who know our pain, and they did something about it.
Thanks to these smart and brave minded people, we now have the option to manage and maintain our WordPress sites from one single dashboard.

I have just released version 1.1 of my WP Inject plugin, which over the course of the last months has become one of the most popular plugins to insert free images into WordPress posts with over 15,000 downloads and a 5 star rating. If you want to learn more about the plugin start with this tutorial where I explain how I use it to find featured images for my new posts with only 2 clicks.
As part of the update I have renamed the plugin from WP Inject to ImageInject. The name “WP Inject” was criticized by some when I first released the plugin, for example by Sarah Gooding in her review for WP Tavern. And probably rightfully so: I admit I did not give the name too much thought before launching. The new name is only a small change but I hope “ImageInject” will make it clearer to new users what the plugin does without confusing existing users too much.
Why did I not name the plugin ImageInject to begin with? In part because when I first released it I had a different scope in mind: I was planning to make WP Inject a platform for inserting lots of things besides just images, including videos and affiliate products. Those plans did not die with the name change but I decided

How to Make Your Old Uploaded Images Web-ready

Tutorials | youtube.com | 2 days ago

Those who started publishing on web in 2011 or before, web ready images was not a great concept back then. These days loading time of your post is a ranking factor so why not you should optimise your old posts. You can use plugin such as WP smsuh.it which compresses the images in WordPress but this doesn't work for image dimension. Chances are you are showing only 650 Px wide images on your blog and many of your images are of biggest size such as 1024 Px.
I was also facing the similar issue and here is what I did:
Downloaded the uploads/images folder using FTP.
Used tool call CyberDuck: cyberduck.io
Resize images with max size using Snagit. You can download snag it for free from here: goo.gl/1dd6DB
Check Snagit tutorial here: www.youtube.com/watch.
and then used ImageOptim to compress the images. Read more about ImageOptim here: goo.gl/aEt8SH
Download ImageOptin for Mac here: imageoptim.com/
Once all done I reuploaded the images back to server & viola a majority of my old images are now web-ready.

11 Essential Tasks for Setting up a New WordPress Website

Tutorials | getwebtips.com | 20 hours ago

If you’ve followed me this far, well done! You should now have new domain registered which is hooked up to your web hosting account and best of all, installed WordPress on your own little piece of the web. While in theory your WordPress site is ready to go, and you might even be chomping at the bit to publish your first post, there are a few important tasks you really should carry out before you get started.
So to help ensure you get off on the right foot with your new website, here are the essential tasks you should undertake after installing WordPress.
Essential Tasks to Carry out after Installing WordPress
The list might look a little long, but most of the these tasks only need to be carried out once and then you can forget about them and focus on creating great content for your website and promoting that content so that it comes to the attention of your target audience (more on how to do that later).
If you spend a bit of time to work through the list now, you can ensure your website will be built on solid foundations.
1. Remove Any Plugins Your Host Pre-installed
While it’s great that most decent web hosts make it very easy to install WordPress by giving you access to one-click
