The WordPress Customizer

The WordPress Customizer

The WordPress Customizer is an interface for drafting changes to content while previewing the changes before they are saved. This is an alternative to the "save and suprise" model of changing settings without knowing what exactly will happen.

The customizer can be accessed in the admin interface under Appearance > Customize.

A screenshot of the customizer

#19909 is the trac ticket that introduced the Customizer during the 3.4 release cycle.

Towards a data model for scalable queries against rich WordPress post attribute data

This document is in draft status, and is being made available for peer review. If you have feedback, comment on this gist or email me.

Let's say you're a web developer. A client of yours is a gemstone dealer in Manhattan. This dealer has an inventory of gemstones that they'd like to put on their website.

Gemstones have a plethora of attributes: type of gemstone (e.g. sapphire or emerald), price, weight, width, height, depth, color, shape, country of origin, treatment (if it's heat treated), who certified these details, whether the stone is a single stone or a pair.

You're offered the task to make a website to display the gemstone inventory, which will include a search interface. So a user can say "I want to see sapphires that are no heavier than 1.33 karats that are oval, between $750 and $1250, between 1.11mm and 1.20mm that weren't heat treated, because heat treatment is cheap."

a simple git branching model

a simple git branching model (written in 2013)

This is a very simple git workflow. It (and variants) is in use by many people. I settled on it after using it very effectively at Athena. GitHub does something similar; Zach Holman mentioned it in this talk.

Update: Woah, thanks for all the attention. Didn't expect this simple rant to get popular.

If you're thinking of using WP_Query, try using this iterator instead, cleaner boilerplate, auto-cleans up after itself

$pages = new query_loop( array(
'post_type' => 'page'
foreach( $pages as $id => $post ) {
// etc...
