On Plugin Activation, How Do I Check for Proper Transport Mechanism?

For a plugin that communicates with somewhere else, I hear we’re supposed to use wp_remote_post and wp_remote_get instead of PHP’s Curl library.

Retrieving Google Plus share count with wp_remote_post

So I’ve spent most of my morning working on my website’s customized social share buttons. Reading out Twitter and Facebook shares were no problem, but Google Plus is a real challenge, as they don’t offer an easy-to-use GET API. I found a working technique using barebones CURL ( ). But previously, I’ve tried hard […]

How to set charset for wp_remote_post request?

I’m using wp_remote_post() on a project and it works great. But seems like the server on which I need to make the POST request is a Windows (ISS) server.
