It is a common problem to detect parents or childs of pages and categories in WordPress correctly. The way WordPress stores relationships in hierarchies is not that trivial sometimes, so the results when querying are a bit confusing sometimes. It took some time to determine and optimize functions which do this job good and without faults, and I want to present these. As in this function I prefer working with page IDs, as this is the savest way to identify certain pages. With little changes it should also be possible to use these using e.g. slugs. Both of these functions can be used inside and outside of "the Loop" or loops.

The most obvious possibility to solve this problem is to change the IIS server configuration. […]

But they all had to use the same login form for the system. A common problem? The WordPress Function Reference and Codex do not document this topic […]
A lot of sites want WordPress excerpts to have an accurate length to fit into a specified number of text lines. This can be required for design reasons, for example. The default WordPress excerpt length is managed by a given amount of words (default 70), which can be very imprecicsly when it comes to the […]

Development projects should not be visible for public internet visitors in a lot of cases. Imagine you develop a project for a large company and the Google robots get you for some reason. There will be a lot of visitors who surf on your unfinished blog or website. There are a lot of Maintenence Plugins […]
