A couple of weeks ago, I shared a small plugin I was working on, Remove Empty Shortcodes, that will – as the name implies – remove empty shortcodes from posts and pages where shortcodes are no longer present.
Today, I’ve tagged another release of the plugin and its available for download on GitHub.
When retiring the memberships, I wanted to make sure I was able to maintain the integrity of all of the posts that I’d published simply without the shortcode that comes with RCP.
What started off as a simple plugin to remove the RCP shortcode turned into a plugin to remove all empty shortcodes. I’m opting to open the plugin’s repository so anyone can access it (or contribute issues, code, or create their own fork from it).
At the time of this writing, the plugin is at0.4.0 so there’s not much to expect. But I enjoy reading the what and why other developers do in their projects, so I’m going to do so with Remove Empty Shortcodes.
A few years ago (as in about five years ago), I released a simple plugin called Tags Without Links. You can read the initial post, too.
In the post, I mention:
In a few recent client projects, I’ve had the need to display WordPress tags without links. Sure, this is relatively easy to do with a foreach loop, but I got tired of writing the same code.
Last week, when I signed into GitHub, I noticed that others were still forking this plugin. And since so much time has passed, there’s still utility in this plugin, and since my development style has changed so much, I opted to refactor the plugin.
So the latest version of Tags Without Links is available, but this post will also describe some of the changes I’ve made (for those who are interested in such).
