advanced taxonomy queries thru pretty urls

A link like this

site.com /resources/?tax1=slug1,slig2&category_name=featured

runs a taxonomy query in the back end and gives us all the resources (
resources is the custom post type here ) where the resuorces are tagged by
either 'slug1' or 'slug 2' under the 'tax1' AND at the same time also
categorized as 'featured'

This is a beautiful implementation. And it just works, And thru the use of
(,) or (+) usage, one can do highly complex advanced taxonomy queries thru
these pretty URLs

2 questions here...

what do I need to replace the "resources" CPT in there to make itlink work
with regular posts? I tried "post" as a replacement and I'm getting a 404
with that link.

And also, In the codex, I could not find a 'NOT IN' operator that would
correspond to a symbol in the query string.
For example, I'm not sure what the link should look like to pull those
posts where the resources are everything **except** those that are termed
as 'slug1' or 'slug2'

Queries for GSOC 15

Hello People,
I was wondering if Wordpress is applying for GSOC this year 2015. Since the Organisation Application has
already started, I wanted to know whether Wordpress is applying or not.
I have been working on a idea which I want to work on as a GSOC project for Wordpress.
I would be happy if I can be put in touch with some potential mentors with whom I can discuss my ideas and come up
with a good project proposal (provided wordpress is applying for GSOC). 

Thanks for taking time to read my mail.

Shreyans Gandhi,India

What happened to plans for unbundling language files for plugins?


Does anyone know what happened to the plans for providing a way for 
plugins to unbundle their language (mo/po) files from the main plugin, 
so that WP would have a mechanism for downloading them separately? This 
mechanism now exists for core, but not for plugins, AFAIK. WooCommerce 
implemented their own mechanism, and whilst it's tempting to do the 
same, it feels like a problem that needs solving at a higher level.

UpdraftPlus, for example, now has 8Mb of language files bundled (2.4Mb 
when zipped). wordpress.org servers have shipped an extra 140 gigabytes 
worth of UpdraftPlus in the last week because of this.

Best wishes,

is there a hook firing right after the </html>?

I need to run ob_get_clean() as soon as the get_footer() is done running -
meaning as soon as the </html> is outputted.

What hook can I use for that?

more insight on why do I need that?
the goal is to put the generated html ( from <doctype to </html> ) into a
and for this goal, I set the "ob_buffer" using the get_header() action hook.
but that's only half of the deal...
I still need to catch the buffer when i am done with the full page -
meaning when I am done wirth outputting the </html>

is there a hook such as "after_get_footer" ?

Language packs for plugins


I'm trying the current status of language packs for plugins - 
particularly, how WordPress and wordpress.org are handling the removal 
of translations from plugin downloads themselves, to shrink their size.

I noticed that WooCommerce had removed their language packs from their 
plugin. But, https://github.com/woothemes/woocommerce/issues/5485 seems 
to indicate that they built a custom solution for this inside their plugin.

So, I think that currently WordPress doesn't yet support unbundling of 
language packs for plugins. From Google, there seems no new information 
on this idea in the last year, as far as plugins go (core now has a 
solution) - is this correct? Anyone know if/when this might change?

(no subject)

Greetings all,

I've been testing WP 4.1, and there's one new feature I can't quite
Clicking an image shows a new toolbar that adds left, right, center, and
no-align to the edit/delete buttons. Clicking these buttons seems to do the
same thing as clicking left, center, right align, or untoggling the current
selected (no-align) on the normal toolbar.

Is this feature redundant, or am I missing something? Are users not
connecting the use of align with selection of image?

Best regards,

map_meta_cap returns empty array for edit_post

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to conditionally set post-related capabilities and I'm surprised
to see that in certain situations that fails.

I believe the culprit is the map_meta_cap function(since in
WP_User::has_cap() $caps is an empty array). The post in question is in the
trash and I'd like to forbid certain users to restore the post. The problem
is with the following check (

} elseif ( 'trash' == $post->post_status ) {
if ( 'publish' == get_post_meta( $post->ID, '_wp_trash_meta_status', true )
) {
$caps[] = $post_type->cap->edit_published_posts;
} else {

If the _wp_trash_meta_status is not publish, then no actual capability is
mapped to the requested one. Hence WP_User::has_cap() returns true and it's
impossible to filter the capability.

Is this the intended behaviour, or is this a bug that somehow managed to
sneak-in? If it's a bug, then I'll post a ticket on Track, but if it's not
I'd be curious to hear why it works that way.

All the best,
