Before I wrote about this, I wanted to give it a little time to settle in and see how it works. But after ~14 years I’ve finally pulled the plug with my former hosting service, MidPhase.
I know I said I’d surrender. But as a service to the public I’m going to try and document one more attempt. This one presumes you’ve got access to WP-CLI and can do some PHP scripting.
In which we look at other ways of doing images.
The latest in my project of converting sites that were using a deeply deprecated plugin.
The next challenge is sorting out how this plugin is used in a multisite installation.
A few bumps along the way, but nothing serious.
Last week I went through how I decided to go with a combination of ACF and Custom Post Type UI in a conversion of a web site away from the Magic Fields plugin. Following those simple examples I go into something a little more complex.
I’ve been using the Magic Fields plugin for more than four years, but it’s no longer actively maintained. And yet it performs two indispensable functions on a site and there’s no straightforward migration path. Time to roll up my sleeves. Part 1 is the easy one.
Two examples of PHP scripts that use WP-CLI. I like to do it this way rather than as a shell script because a) shell scripts are unreadable; and b) I don’t know how to write shell scripts. The first updates an option based on plugin activation and the current option value; the second selectively activates or de-activates a plugin based on the current theme.
A fix for a new bug. You read it here first.
