All My Embedded Links, a WP REST API Proof of Concept

I’m a big fan of the WordPress REST API. I’ve been writing about it here on my site as well as other places. I’ve been using it in production, including in the iOS/Android app NMO Resources which syncs to a WordPress-based website. It’s become a fun new way to interact with data, especially outside of the scope of the website itself.

CMB2 & WP REST API Part 2 – Full Support

This article is a follow up to this previous post, which explored a method for adding CMB2 meta to the WP REST API. As CMB2 author Jason Sternberg mentioned in a comment on that post, WP REST API support was in the process of being built in at that time.

Now that time has come.

Just in time for the announcement that content endpoints are making it into WordPress 4.7, CMB2 published an update on github and on the plugin announcing full support for the WP REST API.

Custom Post Type Basics – Super Custom WP Part 2

This is part two of a series on customizing WordPress. Click here to start at the beginning.

The transition of WordPress from blogging platform to full-fledged CMS is an ongoing process, but it was around Version 3.0 that the ability to register our own custom post type really kicked it into high gear. Custom post types allow us to take advantage of a number of WordPress defaults- the admin UI, taxonomies, archives, thumbnails, revisions, page templates, and more- in order to handle our own types of repeatable data.

CMB2 & the WP REST API

Update: CMB2 has added support for the REST API. While this method is still valid, I encourage you to review my follow-up post as well as their documentation.

CMB2 opens a lot of doors with WordPress development, making it possible to store all sorts of meta, or extra, information about each post. Typically, meta information includes fields like Categories or Tags, but there’s really no limit to what sorts of meta information you can store.

Super Custom WordPress – Series Intro

As we enter the more advanced realms of custom WordPress development and client work, we want to find ways to make the entire experience easier for our clients. Most of our customers come to us to escape some outdated CMS where they’re copy-pasting chunks of HTML, always afraid that they’re going to break something because they’re really not sure what the other 95% of the code is doing anyway.

Frontend Development for Community All Stars

Ask the guys at Community All Stars why they do what they do and the answer is simple: helping high school sports programs succeed. When I taught high school, I quickly learned that sports programs take some of the most at-risk youth and give them a reason to show up every day and work hard. While not strictly a non profit, Community All Stars has enabled many of their schools (they work with hundreds) to bring in $15,000 through fundraisers, apparel, and sponsorship from local community members.
