Have you ever created a custom Generic List and you wanted to use it within a foreach statement? To do so you must implement the IEnumerable interface. This interface is defined as follows:

    public interface IEnumerable<out T> : IEnumerable
    {
        // Summary:
        //     Returns an enumerator that iterates through the collection.
        //
        // Returns:
        //     A System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerator<T> that can be used to iterate through
        //     the collection.
        IEnumerator<T> GetEnumerator();
    }

Personally, if I’m missing some tool the first thing I do is a Google search for an online version. I don’t really like installing new applications. They are usually hard to keep updated or uninstalled and it often includes bloatware such as browser toolbars and so.

So recently I have found many interesting online tools that I could use during web development and here is a not complete but the best 10 tools that could save you a couple hours! You might be familiar with some of them but I hope you will also find something new and great as well. (more…)

Hi folks,

We’ve been using KC Settings to expand the basic setting functionalites of WordPress and we ran into a small issue with getting back the value of a single checkbox as a boolean value.

Here is a small snippet how we achieved this scenario:

<?php
    $opt_show_social = get_post_meta($post->ID, "_show-social-share", true);
    $opt_header_details = get_post_meta($post->ID, "_show-header-details", true);
    $opt_hide_cat_img = get_post_meta($post->ID, "_hide-category-image", true);

    $show_social = parse_boolean($opt_show_social[0]);
    $show_header_details = parse_boolean($opt_header_details[0]);
    $hide_cat_img = parse_boolean($opt_hide_cat_img[0]);
?>

It might not be nice enough though but it works.

Welcome!
