WordPress Disable Self Pings

Depending on your WordPress configuration, plugins, and so forth, your site may be suffering from “self-pings”. Self-pings are pingbacks from your own domain, which are not necessary and look kind of silly displayed alongside other, actual pingbacks.

Redirect Attacker to Special Message

So for what it’s worth, figured it was worth sharing rather than complete and utter deletion. Yes I am a code […]

WordPress Get Edited Post ID

Working on my plugin Disable Gutenberg, I needed a way to get the ID of an edited post. Not on the front-end, but on the “Edit Post” screen in the WP Admin Area. Unfortunately WordPress does not provide a built-in core function for handling this, so it’s necessary to roll our own solution.
