Polluting the internet since 2004
I just updated the WordPress TexMate Bundle with some new features.
I’ve never really worked with the built in Cron in WordPress but have heard others talk about how much of a pain it is. After recently reading a Sitepoint.com article on scheduling events I was able to get the jist of it. The WordPress Bundle now includes snippets for complete actions such as registering single and recurring events. I figure I had better get the snippets in there while it was fresh in my mind.
A little less fresh in my mind were Transients. After watching a presentation on caching at WordCamp Boulder by the very likable (and, yes, smart) Sean O’Shaughnessy and Chris Scott from Voce Communications I got pretty stoked about these functions. Like the
wp_cache… shortcuts there are now shortcuts to the
transients functions. For more information about the wonderful world of transients check out WordPress Codex pages on the Transients API.
Two new shortcuts for
wp_register_style were added. Though they’re a couple lesser used functions, I feel they’re a bit underused as well.
So, while not a huge update it adds some obscure references that hopefully help some folks dive deeper in to developing for WordPress.
