I don’t know why, but any time I edit posts on this site, the block editor always goes into fullscreen mode. Even if I disable it, the next time I edit a post or refresh, it goes right back. My preferences aren’t being saved. Oh well, we can fix that with some PHP! Many thanks […]
One WP-CLI command that I’ve found handy is this db-size command. It allows you to output a site’s registered database tables along with the data and index size in any format that WP-CLI natively supports, with multiple sort options: Here’s some example output from one of my test sites: Enjoy!
If for some reason you can’t run wp db query, but need to export SQL output to a CSV or other file, then have a look at this small WP-CLI command I whipped up that should allow this:
In my forever attempt to learn and understand Gutenberg, React, and ES6 (which I am failing at horribly) I sometimes build WordPress plugins just for the learning experience. I don’t have any full intent on releasing these to the WordPress.org Plugin Repository because I honestly don’t feel like dealing with end users and support. I’m […]
Recently I’ve been working with a client who’s site we’re going to soon be migrating. To help with any downtime, we’ve been looking at reducing their database size, which is something around 50-60 gigabytes. After looking through the database, one easy win would be to purge as many post revisions as possible, since their wp_posts […]

If you google debugging WordPress hooks you’ll find a lot of information. About 1,180,000 results Let’s add another one. WordPress hooks are powerful, but also complex under the hood. There’s plenty of topics I could talk about here, but right now I’m only going to talk about speed. How long does it take for a […]
Have you ever accidentally saved the same post meta to a post in WordPress, and ended up with a duplicate? Of course, you could go through each post and check the meta, check for duplicates, and delete any of them but… I think I’ve figured out a beast of an SQL query that will give […]
…or how I stopped worrying and learned to love the slashes. Post Meta in WordPress is a great tool to store random bits of data associated with your posts. But did you know that it comes with its own set of problems? Have you ever tried storing a JSON string inside of post meta? Only […]
Caching data in WordPress is easy. Caching data in WordPress in a good and performant way takes a bit more work. For instance, many developers commonly use the Transients API to cache data. As the lowest common denominator in caching, this is okay. It’ll get the job done, even on a $10/year shared hosting plan. But what […]
