So, you’ve committed your plugin, tagged it, updated the readme.txt and you’re ready to update your installation. You’re reviewing Plugins from your dashboard, hitting F5 every second since, but the new version never shows up, even though you can see the new version in “Other Versions” using the WordPress™ Plugin Directory.

WordPress comes with the settings API, an API that simplifies development of configuration pages. It’s a complete API, with regard to function and security. This post will take a look at security, more specific, at access control. Continue reading Using the wp settings API with a non-admin user
I’ve been busy developing a WordPress plugin lately and I experienced a best practice right away.
While developing the plugin will probably be the only one loaded. Once released into the wild, for instance by testing it on your live site, and being used in conjunction with pre installed plugins, you may run into

The procedure will do the job, but it does not suffice when you’re connecting to multiple XMLRPC servers from a single process and you want to log calls sent to one specific server.

Every now and then I find myself in a situation where I wish I could just get the calls written to my terminal, in the order I called them in, including parameters – especially when I need support. This is what I came up with in my quest to find a decent way to make the XMLRPC API write each call before it’s actually invoked Continue reading Making python xmlrpclib client log method calls
