  1. Hey Ben, I love what you write, I’ve been following your site for a while now (and once in a while I click on your ads so to support you, shh don’t tell Google).

    I’d like reading more advanced stuff such as filtering / searching posts (or custom content types) via different parameters, say.. custom fields data/values.

    Maybe also a bit of the features the integration with MU allows, etc.



    1. Hey Joaquin – thanks for the support! πŸ™‚

      Good suggestions for posts there as well. I don’t know much about those things either but I reckon I could work them out.


    1. Not much to write about now the books are ended πŸ™‚

      I’ll probably write a review of the final movies though. Maybe we’ll get complimentary tickets to go to the Imax and see it again

  2. I think there is a gap out there on more advanced usage of custom posts in WordPress. Or more broader: what is actually the general architectural direction of taxonomies usage in WordPress? On wikipedia we see various taxonomies and when we compare this with the WordPress database schema it’s harder to understand which types of taxonomies it supports.

    E.g. suppose you make a custom post type “Contact” and a custom post type “Address” (with lots of custom fields). As soon as you want to link a Contact to certain Addresses and link each Address to certain Contacts (mini crm) you are actually using the post type as taxonomy term but this one does not allow you to be re-used as tags over multiple “other” post_types. So actually we need to make for each Contact (custom post type) automatic ALSO a taxonomy term “contact” which links to the contact details idem for address to make this possible.

    Or simpler: if you want to represent any relational database diagram as custom post types in WordPress you DO get the records and fields but not the relations.

    So that relations pattern is interesting (there is a thread in wp-hackers on it)

    1. Just saw the other post –

      Funny, guy practically read my mind and I didn’t even notice his comments when posting my own!

  3. Definitely WordPress. Logic, theme hacks, 3.0 features (post-types, custom menus, custom taxonomies, etc)..

    Jquery would be nice πŸ™‚

    Say… Why aren’t there any quality tuts/articles on creating options panels for custom themes?

    My $0.02

  4. Hi Ben .. I love your new Veggie site with your wife, both because I am a vegetarian and because I love the look of the theme.

    Since I use elemental, I would love hearing more how to create child themes and tweaking the look as you have done.

    1. Hey Becca – glad you like the new site πŸ™‚

      Regarding child themes, I have actually recently started work on a new child theme ebook that will be free to all Pro Theme Design customers. I will probably also post some tips on here from time to time.
