WordPress Developer Resources

Here are various WordPress developer resources that I find useful. Let me know of other resources I should add to the list.

The WordPress Codex – “the online manual for WordPress and a living repository for WordPress information and documentation.”

GenerateWP.com – “Delightful tools for WordPress Developers”

WP-Hasty.com – “Speed up and improve your WordPress development with Hasty”

Awesome WP Developer Tools – Compiled by Luke, located at Github.

AsphaltThemes.com – “37 Free WordPress Developer Resources For Advance WordPress Users”

DesignYourWay.net – “WordPress boilerplates to use for your themes and plugins”

SmashingMagazine.com – “A Detailed Guide To A Custom WordPress Page Templates”

LocalSync.io – “Clone your [Local ⇋ Live] sites instantly”

Whois tools (should likely be added to another list)

Digital.com – “WHOIS Tool: Find The Owner Of Any Domain Name in Seconds.”

HostAdvice.com – “Find out Who is hosting any website.”

Github Gist – One language in the backend and one in the frontend

// setup one language for admin and the other for theme
     // must be called before load_theme_textdomain()

     function set_my_locale($locale) {
          $locale = ( is_admin() ) ? "en_US" : "it_IT";
          setlocale(LC_ALL, $local );
          return $locale;
     add_filter( 'locale', 'set_my_locale' );

Today one can set the site language through WP admin Settings -> General.
A WordPress Trac ticket is under way to add a language selection to the WP login screen.

philowen.com – Add New Admin User in WordPress from PHP MyAdmin.

INSERT INTO 'database_name'.'wp_users' ('ID', 'user_login', 'user_pass', 'user_nicename', 'user_email', 'user_url', 'user_registered', 'user_activation_key', 'user_status', 'display_name') VALUES ('4', 'demo', MD5('demo'), 'Your Name', 'test@yourdomain.com', 'http://www.test.com/', '2011-06-07 00:00:00', '', '0', 'Your Name');

INSERT INTO 'database_name'.'wp_usermeta' ('umeta_id', 'user_id', 'meta_key', 'meta_value') VALUES (NULL, '4', 'wp_capabilities', 'a:1:{s:13:"administrator";s:1:"1";}');

INSERT INTO 'database_name'.'wp_usermeta' ('umeta_id', 'user_id', 'meta_key', 'meta_value') VALUES (NULL, '4', 'wp_user_level', '10');

WPBeginner.com – Create a simple 404.php file to redirect to front page.

header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");
header("Location: ".get_bloginfo('url'));

Place the file into your child theme root folder. Test it out by going to the domain name and /thensomething. If it is not an actual page or post it will redirect to the front page.
