Software Developer and Computer Enthusiast.

Mostly it's web development (PHP, HTML, JS, CSS), but I'm ok with some Delphi(Lazarus) and Java. I also do some occasional ruby/python. Though c/c++ is an easy deterrent.

Aaanyway, if you need help, I'm easily found at uuf6429[at]gmail[dot]com. This serves as my email account as well as msn/gtalk (and uuf6429 for skype) handle.

If you want to help ME instead, it's either offering your super developer skills, or a bottle of Baileys.

comment Detect plugin/theme installation (via upload)
Hmm, I was thinking about doing something on those lines. Didn't know the exact hooks to use though. Thanks!

@Rarst correct, but you can see the code that is sending the details to the Wordpress API site and infer the update conditions from there.

For the record, one should be able to find the behaviour quite easily...Wordpress source is readily available, so it only takes a little searching around...

FYI get_themes() has been deprecated in favour of wp_get_themes()

You slightly misunderstood my problem, please see the comments under my question.

comment Custom Taxonomy Relationship (ex: plant classification)
That made me think, what if I go with the first approach but instead have two custom taxonomies: plant_classification and plant_class_ranks? @s_ha_dum is correct, that's my problem.

comment Custom Taxonomy Relationship (ex: plant classification)
@toscho If I add stuff at the beginning of the hierarchy each existing level changes meaning. Think of it this way: with the 1st approach, I don't have a list of taxon ranks, with the 2nd approach I do (but there are too many disadvantages).

comment Check for correct username on custom login form
I realize this answer is quite old, I'm a bit unsure about its reliability. While I guess it should work, I'd rather not mess with SQL since it may change in the future. On the other hand, I can't find details on alternatives.

comment Get All Images in Media Gallery?
This answer is WRONG. It does not get images from Media Library. It gets images used inside posts. Unused images are not found!
