comment Uninstall, Activate, Deactivate a plugin: typical features & how-to
@kaiser Though, just FYI — phpcs still generates the same error even if you wrap $_REQUEST in either filter_var() or esc_attr(). Seems like more of a problem with phpcs than anything...

@kaiser That's what I figured. Your answer is even referenced by the official WP docs, so I figured it's probably not an issue. Thanks for getting back to me!

I'm linting some code based off the class-based approach and the VIP code standards are giving me grief over those $_REQUEST globals, saying they're non-sanitised. Any ideas how to get around that?

comment Hook for image edit popup
@MannyFleurmond Yep — like, when you insert an image and then click it, two buttons pop up, "delete" and "edit". Is there any way of hooking into the "Edit" button so it opens, say, a TinyMCE modal instead of the WP Media Manager? It seems the code for it all is in wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wpeditimage...

comment Add custom TinyMCE 4 Button, Usable since WordPress 3.9-beta1
Wish I had found this answer before spending half an hour trying to add it via a CSS file. This seems like the best way to do it; all the tutorials I've found online are unnecessarily verbose.
