I have been working through this example: http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/creating-wp-archive-custom-field-filter/ That a colleague of mine found for creating a simple checkbox-based filter for WordPress custom posts, that filters by a custom post type. I’ve got it all set up and it seems to be working here – , if you filter by ‘Place’ then the ‘All Locations’ […]

Faking the “onSave” event

While a specific use-case, I believe this may benefit others. I am using TurboCSV to mass-import a number of posts into WordPress (which it is doing wonderfully so far).
