This post is part of a series on Sanitization with the WordPress Settings API. Here is Part 1.Yesterday, I started talking about how to sanitize multiple values with the WordPress Settings API.

This post is part of a series on Sanitization with the WordPress Settings API. This is the first post in the series.A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a series of posts on An Object-Oriented Approach to the WordPress Settings API.

As an industry, computer science and/or software engineering is comparatively young. The field moves fast, no doubt, but we’ve obviously not been around as long as many of the other industries in which our parents or our peers are involved. I think that’s just one part of what makes all of this interesting. One thing that […]

Earlier this week, I wrote a post about how we use the term “WordPress Admin,” how I suspect that we’re using it incorrectly, and I discussed the significance and importance of consistency of terminology when working with customers and clients. The post generated far more discussion than I would have expected, which is a good thing, […]

I think one of the more popular discussions that comes up among developers (and designers) from time-time is how to be productive as possible. Personally, I’d go as to far as to say that it gets harder and harder each year (let alone each, say, quarter). By that, I mean we try to use tools […]
