I’ve been very fortunate to have worked at The Telegraph since April 2011; it was my first “real” development job, and as I said in an email to my (ex-)colleagues earlier today, I’ve enjoyed my time there and I’m very proud of what we were able to accomplish together. However, I’m after a new challenge, and so I’m moving on.
I’m extremely pleased to announce that I’ve joined Automattic as a Code Wrangler, joining their VIP team. I’m very excited to be working for such a great company, which is full of awesome and inspiring people, and I can’t wait to get started!
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy christmas and a great new year; 2013 is going to be awesome!
phpDoc to WordPress exports documentation generated by phpDocumentor into WordPress. Start using it today.
The best way to produce useful documentation for PHP code is to annotate it with phpDoc tags and keywords. Based on javadoc, phpDoc goes beyond a straightforward description of what something does, and allows the developer to add extra information which will help others who read the code to quickly understand its most important aspects. For example, a function can marked up to say when it was added to a project, its arguments types, and its return values.
From this phpDoc markup, the phpDocumentor app is the best way to generate standalone documentation that you can distribute with your project or make available as a reference on your website. But what happens when you want this documentation inside your WordPress?
WP Re-Importer 1.1 is now available, and contains the following improvements:
- Checks for existing posts during import now compares the post name rather than post title.
- Fix post meta being duplicated on multiple imports.
- Allow imported posts’ post_parent to be set to a post not in the import (e.g. an existing post).
I’ve released a new plugin today; say hello to WP Re-Importer. As a fork of the standard WordPress Importer plugin, WP Re-Importer adds the following features:
- Importing content that already exists will add the new version as a post revision
- A default parent post can be set for content that doesn’t have a hierarchy defined in the WordPress export file
