    WordPress Post Types and Custom Taxonomy Articles 

    I’m putting links to these two articles together. Understanding both makes things magical.

    My Ugly WordPress, HyperDB, & BuddyPress Deployment Shell Script 

    This is the source of some of the website deployment scripts I have. This is one is fairly complex and it is my pocket tool of choice for development of big nasty WordPress sites. Probably only interesting to folks who deal with unix shells and do mildly heavy WordPress work.

    It’s designed to update from SVN trunk for WordPress, HyperDB, & BuddyPress. My favorite is quick rsync for folders and subfolders so you can upload theme changes quickly because the web is my sketchpad.

    Common List of Commands:

    # Get the configured site 
    ./wp-work.sh get
    # Put the configured site 
    ./wp-work.sh put
    # Upgrade the configured site to latest WordPress, HyperDB, & BuddyPress
    ./wp-work.sh upgrade
    # Put specific folders in the sites root
    ./wp-work.sh work put the-site-folder
    # get specific folders in the sites root
    ./wp-work.sh work get the-site-folder
    

    The Big Ugly Script:

    You will really want to customize the top values for sure.

    #!/bin/sh
    
    # Batch Update jess
    #
    # Uses flat array list of site locations, updates using latest source from SVN and performs all update steps.
    #
    
    # Website Name
    WEB_ROOT_NAME="example.com"
    
    # Web Direcory locations Using $HOME is good.
    WEB_ROOT_LOCAL="${HOME}/luser/${WEB_ROOT_NAME}/"
    WEB_ROOT_REMOTE="/home/luser/${WEB_ROOT_NAME}/"
    
    # Archive -a mode is -rlptgoD -pgo is permission, user, group and be an issue had to add -vz
    RSYNC_SWITCH='-vzrltD'
    # SSH command because you might need: 'ssh -i /shh/secret-key/master-magic-key -p 56232'
    RSYNC_SSH='ssh'
    # Remember the ssh account is where your files land.
    RSYNC_SSH_ACCOUNT='me@example.com'
    
    # Tools location for exclude files ans stuff. Using $HOME is good.
    TOOLS_ROOT_LOCAL="${HOME}/luser/stuff/"
    TOOLS_ROOT_EXCLUDES="${HOME}/luser/stuff/"
    
    # Temp files
    TEMP_ROOT_LOCAL="${HOME}/luser/tmp/"
    
    # Putting the path into a variable gets tricky
    WORKING_TEMP_LOCATION=$( readlink -nf ${TEMP_ROOT_LOCAL} )
    
    # Move to tools directory so we can find things easier.
    cd ${TOOLS_ROOT_LOCAL}
    
    # Print good ole help if no command

    	  exit
    	fi	
    
    fi
    

    Exclude file: wordpress-exclude.txt needs to be in that TOOLS_ROOT_EXCLUDES directory. I use it skip stuff that I don’t want to be synced on upload because the remote file changes are most important.

    .htaccess
    wp-config.php
    bb-config.php
    cache/
    blogs.dir
    uploads
    wp-content/advanced-cache.php
    wp-cache-config.php
    sitemap.xml.gz
    robots.txt
    sitemap.xml
    googlee-thingyfile.html
    

    Exclude file: wpmu-bbpress-bp.txt needs to be in that TOOLS_ROOT_EXCLUDES directory. This is to keep files from being overwritten when a package is created from the SVN repositories and moved to the local site staging area. This really may need customized to protect your personal themes, plugins, and files.

    - .htaccess
    - wp-config.php
    - bb-config.php
    - /cgi-bin

    WP Super Edit & Some WordPress TinyMCE Notes 

    Discussion on wp-hackers centering around a simpler api for creating simple buttons.

    Otto:

    There’s an example to add a quick button to TinyMCE at:
    http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/examples/example_20.php

    To do this in a WP plugin, you’d hook to mce_buttons_2 (or 3, or 4) to add your button to the list. Then you’d hook up a filter on tiny_mce_before_init to add your javascript code to the $initArray[‘setup’]. That should be pretty much that, really.

    Someone suggested to combine that a simple button api with the shortcode api to create a simple visual editor button api. Probably way to many use cases to cover, but it is an interesting concept. Some groundwork exists in the Super Emoticons code for WP Super Edit.

    Fixing The WordPress.com Custom CSS Plugin 

    That plugin is custom to WordPress.com, so it’s not really for wide usage yet. But I did find these notes for WPMU usage:

    I needed to do two things to make it work:

    On line 131 change is_int() to is_numeric():

    if ( is_numeric( $blog_id ) ) {
    switch_to_blog( $blog_id );
    $current_plugins = apply_filters( ‘active_plugins’, get_option( ‘active_plugins’ ) );
    }

    Then in my .htaccess add the following:

    RewriteRule ^custom-css.php /index.php [L,QSA]

    Now works a treat.
