How to link 2 categories (Sync)

I want that whenever a user post something in category “Foo”, the same content must be duplicated to the category “Bar” automatically. Is there such a plugin that automate the process?

WP_Query and polylang issue

In the theme I develop, I have a template showing 5 posts using the standard loop: <?php $my_query = new WP_Query(‘showposts=5’); while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?> and so on….

Replicating the WP_Query 's' param with $wpdb

Take this basic query: $posts = new WP_Query(array( ‘post_type’ => ‘page’ ‘s’ => ‘some search query’ )); WordPress will split the some search query into 3 separate search terms, which is why I need to make this $wpdb function. I want the same functionality, but with the entire query treated as 1 search term. Here […]

get_locale() behaving strange in same functions.php file

create users to site with specific language

We’ve created a website that has 8 languages, Russian, Spanish or English to name a few. Each language has its own version of the website.

How to show all available images in WP's media library when using the Polylang plugin?

It seems that depending on which default language I’ve set Polylang to, all my uploaded images are isolated so that I can only pick them when I’m editing posts in the default language. I have a lot more images shared/in-common between English and French posts than images specific to a single language. Is there any […]
