WordPress Post Status for WP Query: Unexpected Results?

I’ve run into this a few times.

You’re on a website, you notice that results seem to be different when you query the database depending on if you are on Page A, vs Page B — or if you are logged in vs logged out.
You start asking questions like “is my plugin broken?” and “did I introduce a bug or something”?

Answer is probably “no”.

Many things depend on WP_Query within WordPress. It has some out of the box functionality that you may not know about.

Learn you a Pantheon: Supporting Organizations

I know lots of people, freelancers, clients and agencies using Pantheon for their WordPress and Drupal needs.

Continually I see people collaborating across projects, and granting developers permissions to collaborate by adding them directly via e-mail addresses to their Pantheon projects.

This is… “fine”? I’m not a big fan of “fine”.

Nope, not OK.

There’s a better way.

A question appeared on the “Advanced WordPress” Group on Facebook

Professionally Migrating WordPress

What I’m about to cover is centered around taking a clean, working WordPress installation and moving it. That could be to another server, another domain, or bringing it down to setup a local development environment.

Sorting

Order by Meta Values

Huge props to Chris McCoy A.K.A “fris” (GitHub / Twitter) for schooling me in using add_filter for this.

I needed to add custom fields to the post type: Post within WordPress. That’s not problematic, in fact it’s rather quite easy. But, ordering Posts based on the assigned value of my custom field… that isn’t super straight forward.

Regardless, it’s currently the most popular CMS platform with some 60,000,000 WordPress websites worldwide.
