Why not to use remove link

This is my experience: I have to rewrite administration page where
there is remove button (in a form) with only javascript confirm.

I thought: "no one had problem with no limitation in the past, why they
should now? I'll use a link with javascript confirm.

It happened I have a dashboard page where is listed the last entries
and links for update and delete its. It happened that few day later 20
entries was deleted and I was looking for what caused the problem for
one day.

php goodies: filter

Filter is in php by default from 5.2.0 and is a usefull library for web developer, so it is the time to make use of it.

It was created for validation and sanitization of foreign input, that is GET, POST, COOKIE, or anything that you can't trust on. With php filter one can tests if a variable is present in the current request: 

if(filter_has_var(INPUT_POST,'login')) {
//manage login
}

Using this function a check state of a checkbox in a form could be tested as well:

Wordpress Category external feed plugin

This wordpress plugin is for show custom external rss feed in category page.

For example if you want a category page list rss feed from another site category page, this is for you.

It is my first wordpress plugin (ok, maybe not exactly the very first hello world like ;)

It use simplepie because I like it. (it is included in package and license is almost compatible)

Simplepie and CodeIgniter

yes, found: http://www.haughin.com/code/simplepie/
and tried with php 5.3 installation ... simply do not work

I recalled there was a problem in simplepie for assign new by reference, just downloaded newer code from http://simplepie.org/ ... still same problem.

So

{syntaxhighlighter brush:bash}
sed 's/=&\ new/=\ new/' simplepie.inc > Simplepie.php
{/syntaxhighlighter}

jquery Form Hint plugin (mine)

This is my view of form hint plugin: show a div over with the title content inside, instead of replace text in input elements and match it with placeholder
simply run $(selector).formHint() on all form element and title is used as hint
