Yancik: Minus1999: edit the header of a child theme using header.php instead of functions.php
Beandoin: Using the xml rpc api and sending along a url-encoded post_name, yet somehow it is being overridden by the submitted title
Hoiness: It currently only has a style.css and a function.php, so add a header.php to childtheme.?
Govea: Gremlyn: why use the XML api instead of the new wp api?
Opteyndt: Scavotto, I guess I did not realise that there was a new API. this is a system that already used the xml api
Atha: So unfortunately we won’t be updating the system to use the new API now
Isley: At least not right now
Diani: Scavotto, you mean this? https://codex.----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/WordPress_APIs
Edson: Gremlyn: this http://wp-api.org/
Latortue: How do make it where it only shows posts that don’t include tag ‘foo’
Losada: So it’s not included with WP by default, yet xml rpc is?
Steinbacher: Gremlyn: it’s fairly new
Snyder: It will eventually be merged in core
Hoglund: I’ll probably have to to wait to switch over to it until it is
Cardno: Lindsay, do I need to copy the entire header.php file from the parent theme and just edit what I need changed? or can I just have the change by itself?
Krepp: Asking clients to install plugins is a nightmare waiting to happen
Atkinson: Gremlyn: it is totally safe and stable to use until it is
Bogenschutz: Bero, I don’t doubt it
Jeng: Minus1999: copy the entire header.php file and edit the copy
Kranich: But if I have to tell someone to go install something to make this work, the chances of them wanting to and actually doing it and the properly decrease chances of success
Mostyn: I guess, but then what is your other option
Wheelen: Since it is already included
Morelle: If I can figure out why it is overriding my post_name, all will be well
Ingwersen: Gremlyn: the client doesnt install anything. you would install and set it up
Gekas: Scavotto, depends on how the service you run works
Cindrich: Gremlyn: you COULD drop the wp api into mu-plugins
Schoborg: Gremlyn: but you should keep an eye on it because it will be the future of mobile WP content
Sealock: I don’t have access too all the back ends for my clients
Violetta: Gremlyn: unless you’re talking about unique individual WP installs.
Winberry: You don’t have access to the wp-content folder?
Hawes: Gremlyn: but in that case you’re talking about unique installs anyways and having to do some level of setup for the client
Moonshower: For this specific application, no
Siemonsma: Yea still not understanding what youre saying
Biggar: They come to us, grant us permission to create content on their site
Riffe: So my service creates pages/posts on their site
Audirsch: Some of our clients host with us, others don’t
Arendale: Is it fairly specialized?
Pascall: Basically ghost writing
Finefrock: Gremlyn: typically what I would do is have a branded plugin that all people who want to use my “service” install
Living: That would cover everything including the wp api and all custom code and authentication
Enslinger: Scavotto, that’s fine in the longer term, but right now – today – I need to figure out how to get our existing xml rpc code working as needed
Carne: Gremlyn: missed the original question, got a pastebin?
Virani: Gremlyn: post your code
Casias: Here is the relevant code: https://gist.github.com/Gremlyn/30bd6114b61a0df7b6cb
Capaccino: Really just the params I put together to send through
