WordPress Platform Architect

My team and I build WordPress-based platforms for agencies, enterprises and software companies. Contact us to hire our team (PLEASE READ THIS before contacting me.)

Blogs occasionally at HardcoreWP.com.

P.S. Need help with your code? Please ask here on WordPress Answers so answers you receive are beneficial to all.

However, please do not email me directly to ask "how to" questions; if you have asked here and if I haven't answered your question personally it is because I have many time commitments to clients and I must give them first priority.

comment Remove Ability for Other Users to View Administrator in User List?
@ReNiShAR Maybe, but knowing what plugins exist is not an expertise of mine. Instead I just know how to build them. :) Maybe google is?

comment The Difference Between Hierarchical and Non-Hierarchical Taxonomies?
@ravensfan55222 - Not exactly, but almost. Instead of a 'hierarchical taxonomy' being the same as a custom category, the built-in Category classification system is just one of many potential hierarchical taxonomies. Similarly (Post) Tags are just one example of a non-hierarchical taxonomy. More correctly, "hierarchical" is just an attribute of a taxonomy, like how a label is an just attribute of a taxonomy or color is an attribute of a car. That might have been what you meant but I wanted to clarify if not.

comment How to sort the admin area of a WordPress custom post type by a custom field
@RailsTweeter Use the technique I showed here where the two hooks that bracket the HTML generation are 'months_dropdown_results' and 'restrict_manage_posts'. P.S. Upvotes are always appreciated. :)

Consider posting a feature request at JetBrain's website. For v8.0 they added a bunch of WordPress functionality.

comment Dealing with Many Meta Values, 30+
Worry about 30+ meta key values when you have 100,000+ posts, not when you only have 100+ posts. At only 3000+ meta records, MySQL is blisteringly fast. IOW, don't worry about it. If you do get to 100,000+ records, move to a better server and start leveraging intelligent caching.

@PeterB - Thanks for the kind comments. I'm still working on a general use plugin but I prepared an in-depth WordCamp talk about URL Routing, slides are here: hardcorewp.com/2014/hardcore-url-routing-for-wordpress
