FirePHP and WordPress

wp-firephp

WordPress uses a whole series of constants and variables that may be useful. Even better if you know what is in there. A clean output of the contents can be realized with the Firefox add-on FirePHP for Firebug.

To symplify and accelerate my development, I always have a plugin activated, which outputs various contents, directly above FirePHP. Hence I created a small Plugin, which contains a whole series of constants and variables, which is based on the upcoming 2.8 version of WordPress. Because I think that this can be useful, here the download to the Plugin and the content, if someone has a solution and only needs the constants and variables.

Plugin WP FirePHP

To work quickly and easily in WordPress with FirePHP, I recommend to use the Plugin. It requires no settings or something similar in the database, the code is exemplary, so that you can easily expand and areas can be commented out if some are not needed. We have a variety of content in it that are useful in WordPress, including the constants, global variables and PHP predefined variables.

Download the Plugin in SVN of WordPress: WP FirePHP. The installation is as usual, put it in the Plugin folder and activate.

Bye Bye my-hacks.php?

Soon the new 2.8 version of WordPress will be released, but the hype is not as much as it was some years ago, when version 2.0 was released for example.

But the new version brings many new things, fixes a large number of problems and WordPress is in my view, more open than in the prior versions. One of the points that users should be aware of is the fact that the option for the support of the my-hacks.php removed. 2003 this file was announced as a feature, and now it's going to be removed silently. WordPress has a sophisticated interface system, you can start at various points and bring in new functionality, so that the developer team decided that there is no longer need to support this solution. Alternatives and possibilities of further usage will briefly shown here.

WordPress Plugin-Path

When working on a Plugin I noticed that the path to its files is not always complete, which depends on the WordPress version.
With WordPress Version 2.8 the function plugins_url() extends and it can be incorporate in a much cleaner way, no maintenance of the folder required, where the Plugin is put. An example will illustrate it and possibly will help the one or other author at his work.

Disable WordPress Search

Not always is the search in WordPress desired. The one or another application with WordPress doesn't need this feature. Even if it is an added value in my opinion. In some cases, it still shouldn't be displayed and so I have them deactivated with access to two hooks. For now, I can see no other place where you could access it in my applications and it works so smoothly.

Pages & Subpages – Is Parent?

wp_subpage
WordPress allows to create sub-pages in your backend. This is why many uses WordPress as a CMS. Sometimes you like with the help of the Conditional Tags to start several queries with a certain respond – but then you see frequently in the template static queries on any ID of a page.
But it's possible to handle this differently, and simpler when it comes to pages or sub-pages of this page.

With this solution you can, for example, in dependence of a page, load a specific layout. This small request I'll take as an example and show a function that gives queries to pages / sub-pages and I will show an example in action.
