    Let's analyze this piece of code, part of class WP_Query, file wp-includes/class-wp-query.php ... <?php public function is_category( $category = '' ) { if ( !$this->is_category ) return false; if ( empty($category) ) return true; $cat_obj = $this->get_queried_object(); $category = array_map( 'strval', (array) $category ); if ( in_array( (string) $cat_obj->term_id, $category ) ) return true; elseif ( in_array( $cat_obj->name, $category ) ) return true; elseif ( in_array( $cat_obj->slug, $category ) ) return true; return false; } now, trying to pass 2 WP_Term, something really funny happens (i know specifications want the $category variable as a single id or slug or term_name, and not as class, but there was nothing blocking the thing to work, so i tried, and i wanted to report results). $cat_obj value was <?php object(WP_Term)#9010 (16) { ["term_id"]=> int(7) ["name"]=> string(8) "Consigli" ["slug"]=> string(8) "consigli" ["term_group"]=> int(0) ["term_taxonomy_id"]=> int(7) ["taxonomy"]=> string(8) "category" ["description"]=> string(0) "" ["parent"]=> int(0) ["count"]=> int(4) ["filter"]=> string(3) "raw" ["cat_ID"]=> int(7) ["category_count"]=> int(4) ["category_description"]=> string(0) "" ["cat_name"]=> string(8) "Consigli" ["category_nicename"]=> string(8) "consigli" ["category_parent"]=> int(0) } the first WP_Term was <?php object(WP_Term)#9123 (16) { ["term_id"]=> int(7) ["name"]=> string(8) "Consigli" ["slug"]=> string(8) "consigli" ["term_group"]=> int(0) ["term_taxonomy_id"]=> int(7) ["taxonomy"]=> string(8) "category" ["description"]=> string(0) "" ["parent"]=> int(0) ["count"]=> int(4) ["filter"]=> string(3) "raw" ["cat_ID"]=> int(7) ["category_count"]=> int(4) ["category_description"]=> string(0) "" ["cat_name"]=> string(8) "Consigli" ["category_nicename"]=> string(8) "consigli" ["category_parent"]=> int(0) } The second term was instead: <?php object(WP_Term)#9154 (16) { ["term_id"]=> int(5) ["name"]=> string(4) "News" ["slug"]=> string(4) "news" ["term_group"]=> int(0) ["term_taxonomy_id"]=> int(5) ["taxonomy"]=> string(8) "category" ["description"]=> string(0) "" ["parent"]=> int(0) ["count"]=> int(7) ["filter"]=> string(3) "raw" ["cat_ID"]=> int(5) ["category_count"]=> int(7) ["category_description"]=> string(0) "" ["cat_name"]=> string(4) "News" ["category_nicename"]=> string(4) "news" ["category_parent"]=> int(0) } Please be aware that $cat_obj->term_id is 7, first term term_id is 7, and second term category_count is 7. When the WP_Term object passes into this <?php $category = array_map( 'strval', (array) $category ); it becomes an array of value, as it's converted in array, so method <?php if ( in_array( (string) $cat_obj->term_id, $category ) ) return true; will return true for both searched terms. More generally, if $cat_obj->term_id or $cat_obj->name or $cat_obj->slug are in some ways contained in searched WP_Term, this method will always return true. I know you need to respect old styled code, but nowadays we're best working with objects, so i'm wondering if you could do a more pointed and precise logging of these kind of errors. For example, you could hook a logger in each is_something method of class WP_Query, when you can check if we passed an instanceof the correct class (WP_Term for is_tag, is_category, is_tax etc) and warn if we passed a wrong class.

  • I am taking my leave of Weblog Tools Collection, and thanks for everything! March 31, 2013 1:41 pm
    Not many of the present readers might know me very well, and that in part, is the reason that I have made the decision to transfer WLTC to more willing and presently capable hands. I am a stranger on my blog and the time has come for me to make sure that this blog, its contents and its knowledge are archived and preserved and maybe rejuvenated at a later time. I delved into blogging tools back in 2004 when I started my Masters degree in CS. I wanted some code to mess around with in my free time and everyone was talking about blogging. I looked into a variety of tools, built a small Linux server for myself at home, and installed a few of the tools that were freely available at that time. I had a heck of a time getting a hold of MT (Moveable Type, the most well-known name) and […]

  • Where to Find WordPress News March 31, 2013 12:05 am
    The landscape of news has changed so much over the last few years that news about a particular topic or platform is readily available to anyone within an instant. With WordPress, I imagine that could be one of the perks of powering over 16% of the web, but it’s true that news is becoming incredibly accessible. In short, news is everywhere. Speaking of WordPress in general, you can of course acquire official direct news from WordPress News, but you can also take a peak behind the curtain and follow news in the making at Make Though it’s only specific to the blogging platform, News is also worth watching for WordPress development news, as users often get access to new WordPress features before they’re released, so you’ll be able to try new features rather than just read about them. There’s more news than just direct official news, like I […]

  • Do You Work From Home? March 12, 2013 2:00 pm
    There has been a lot of talk lately about working from home and maintaining a distributed workforce. Web-based software, like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal, are taking over the publishing industry and allow you to work from anywhere with an internet connection. Though, even though they can be managed  from home, working from home and maintaining a distributed workforce is not yet broadly acknowledged in society as a successful and efficient alternative to working in an office. Despite working with software that doesn’t need to be tied to one specific workstation, you could still find yourself tied to a desk in cubicle. I work full-time for Automattic and have the pleasure of both working from home and setting my own hours. After all, I only need a browser, an email client, and IRC client, and Skype to do my job.

  • John Eckman: Structured Content in the Age of Gutenberg October 14, 2018 6:32 pm
    Content Strategists like Karen McGrane make a distinction between CMS implementations that store content in large, unstructured “blobs” and those which store finely grained, structured “chunks.” WordPress is often accused of being on #teamblob but with appropriate use of custom post types, post meta, taxonomies, and term meta, can be an excellent example of #teamchunk. Now enter project Gutenberg, with inline block creation, block templates, block types, shared blocks and dynamic blocks. Is this a return to #teamblob? If you create a block for, as an example, staff profiles, will you end up with hardcoded staff phone numbers in different blocks on different pages? Will you have to rewrite the staff directory to be a dynamic block? What’s all this about storing the content as html comments? This talk will not be a deep dive into the code of Gutenberg, but will explain how Gutenberg’s approach fits into the debate about structured content versus unstructured content, and how you can best leverage the new WordPress editor without going all blobby.

    Case study of accessible WordPress Web site 2016年の障害者差別解消法で、公的機関は義務、民間事業者は努力義務として、障害を理由とした差別をなくしてゆくことが法整備されました。ウェブサイトの世界では、ウェブアクセシビリティの規格、JIS X 8341-3:2016 で求められている達成基準に沿うことで、差別解消の取り組みとなります。 というわけで、クライアントに「アクセシビリティ対応してよ」と言われ、制作会社なりに JIS の勉強をして、アクセシブルなサイトを構築するわけです。しかし、WordPress のような CMS の場合、公開後の更新をクライアントに委ねてしまうと目を覆いたくなる「バリアフル」なサイトになってしまうのはよくある話です。 今回のセッションでは、こういった悲劇をできるだけ回避するために、ウェブアクセシビリティの入門的概観を少しお話して、アクセシビリティ維持のためのプラグイン「jwp-a11y」の使い方を紹介します。 加えて、「 WordPress とアクセシビリティ」関連の実際の運用例として、全盲の視覚障害者がスクリーンリーダを使って WordPress を操作し、ウェブサイトを更新している事例を紹介します。Presentation Slides »

    WordPress allows users to manage their content through the WordPress admin screens. This means users can add, edit and delete content and media and manage their sites without the need to ask developers for every change. WordPress is a content management system, but all too often it can end up becoming a content mismanagement system when editing and managing the site is just too difficult, This talk goes through some of the ways in which we build sites so they are easy to content manage, whilst allowing clients to edit pretty much all of their site. It will cover the different methods we use to make content management easy and some of the problems that we see with sites we have been asked to improve. Hopefully by the end of this talk attendees will come away with some practical examples on how to make content management with WordPress easier and quicker for users.Presentation Slides »
  • Khalid Munir: WordPress = Child’s Play October 12, 2018 11:10 am
    Helping 3 children between the ages of 4-8 to create their first WordPress sites, I realised that adults and children approach problem solving very differently. Adults try to relate everything to experience, which works a lot of the time. For children, every experience is a lesson. They are constantly problem solving, thinking outside the box, and seeing things that adults often do not see. My children have pointed out solutions that are hiding in plain site, but they have also used their imagination to their advantage. This talk offers practical advice for supporting young people creating their first WordPress website, highlights the importance of teaching the future generations about technology and demonstrates that the next generation of WordPress developers could teach us a lot too.

    A starter theme is the foundation of your project and gives you a head start in development. In this talk, we refresh and review starter theme ideas and bring them to the modern era. First, starter themes should be accessibility-ready and have clean semantic HTML without lots of extra DIVs. Then we can use CSS Grid for our layouts. In general, CSS (or SASS) structure is a crucial guide to developers for how they write their CSS. Starter themes should also be ready for Gutenberg and give a maximum WYSIWYG experience. How about also ES6 for JavaScript, Gulp or Webpack for automated tasks like compiling assets, optimising images and SVGs, CSS and JS linting, SVG system, and being design system ready.

  • Sean Blakeley: When to Use the API October 5, 2018 9:09 am
    Key takeaways: The API liberates data outside of WordPress and projects like Gutenberg – breaking content into modular content blocks – will change the way WordPress considers data relationships. The API is driving a new Enterprise Stack – with each element the industry leader in its field – including WordPress as the fast moving publishing solution. Decoupling the front – using technologies like React – & decoupling the back – using technologies like Elasticsearch – begs the question: Why continue using WordPress? The answer is that clients, content teams, editors & authors all over the world have built a passion for WordPress for its ease of use and friendly interface. This strength should never be underestimated.
