Have You Seen Hookr.io Lately?

Early last year a new online resource was launched for WordPress developers called Hookr.io. The website is described as The WordPress Hook/API Index, but it is so much more.

WordPress contains a function to help you detect a large network, wp_is_large_network(). This function accepts a single parameter $using, which sets whether to count users or sites.

PressNomics 2015

Current status: On an airplane flying to sunny Phoenix, Arizona for PressNomics 3! PressNomics is an awesome event that focuses on the commercial side of WordPress. The event is self-described as “The conference for those that power the WordPress Economy” and that statement couldn’t be more true. PressNomics is a who’s who of respected professionals […]
