lazy smart shortcodes

This is where I’d want to show you the “big picture” of how WordPress works, how pages get loaded and when shortcodes get invoked.

Some plugins do a bit more than they should. The new Bobbing Wide / oik API  supports

  • lazy shortcodes,
  • smart shortcodes,
  • trace,
  • plugin dependencies

Lazy shortcodes

Implement “callbacks” and deferred loading of functionality. They give WordPress a business card saying.

When you need me, here’s how to get in touch.

Additionally,

  • They don’t waste their time doing things that other plugins and APIs can do for them.
  • They don’t do things until necessary

Smart shortcodes

Understand the context in which they’re being executed and adjust their behaviour accordingly.

e.g.

  • You want to be able to control when a shortcode will get expanded
  • You don’t want HTML to appear in tooltips
  • You don’t want shortcodes expanded on admin pages

Trace

Problem determination  in the background. Debug information is not written to the screen. Easily turn on and offable.

Plugin dependencies

Plugins shouldn’t just crash. They can become active when the dependencies are satisfied.

[oik]-plugin = OIK Information Kit

[oik]-plugin = OIK Information Kit

oik is the base plugin upon which lazy smart shortcodes are built.
