comment How do I make WordPress revise an .htaccess file a certain way?
@chrisguitarguy I'm doing secured content in my plugin. I'm intercepting /my-post (because it's been marked in my plugin as secured) and redirecting to /special/secured/my-post (not a physical path, but a logical rewrite one), where my plugin intercepts and shows it only to logged-in members.

comment How do I make a theme “plugin-ready”?
@userabuser And I guess on (c), perhaps I'm going about it wrong. I mean, filtering content before display on admin panels and theme pages -- I think there's already a couple WordPress hooks for that, right?

@userabuser. All I want is simple. I want to make a standardized, guessable-name way, whether front-end or admin panels, that all my themes can (a) expose a hook after a $_POST, $_GET, series of get_option(), and series of $_SERVER evaluations are done at the top of a theme file; (b) expose a hook before content is displayed; and (c) expose a filter that lets someone alter the content before being displayed.

Interesting, but doesn't take into account the admin panels for a given theme.

Besides, I don't consider it bad advice. I mean, the thing you prescribe, where I tell people to do do_action() and apply_filters() -- I'm already doing that. And then I conclude and tell people that in their plugins they will need to use add_action() and add_filter() so that it can trigger those do_action() and apply_filters() calls in the theme. So, I guess I don't understand what point your making, and then anything else in this discussion besides this point sounds like an issue to take up with meta.

My strategy was to make it kind of brainless and consistent so that one doesn't have to keep thinking up custom events all over the place. Note that my strategy provides a consistent way to handle POST, GET, reaction to $_SERVER variables and get_option() settings strings, and also a consistent way to handle pre and post content display. Now, granted, once this is done, however, if one wants to take it to the next level and add even more custom events as you suggest above, then yes, that's probably going to help, where warranted.

Sounds like @userabuser's discussion needs to be taken up with meta.

comment How Do I Programmatically Better Organize Custom Post Type Menus?
Yeah, I can't always trust generators to be on the web, so I need to just build my own PHP script that replicates this. Plus, it's pretty easy to use the add_menu_page() function to create the "Management" menu instead of using the Admin Menu Editor.

comment How Do I Programmatically Better Organize Custom Post Type Menus?
I used this handy generator to create a Custom Post Type, and then I installed the free Admin Menu Editor plugin and created a custom menu called "Management" with slug/hook as "mgmt". Next, all I had to do in my auto-generated custom post type code was add the line 'show_in_menu' => 'mgmt', and sure enough -- she works! Thanks so much!
