WordPress: How to block Edit single post

by on apr.10, 2012, under are you curious?, Developers

Wordpress Hack!Hi guys,
Have you ever needed to Block the editing of a single post (or a group of they) for a single role or a single user?
I think that this little hack can help you…

You need to intercept this action: admin_head with the common function add_action and then write your redirect code like in this sample:

add_action(‘admin_head’, ‘BlockSomePost’,10 );

function BlockSomePost() {
	//Assuming that blockPostArray is and array that contains your locked post ID...
	global $blockPostArray;

    //get The Current user
	$cUser = wp_get_current_user();
	//Check the User Role:
	//assume that blockrole is your blocked Role...
	if(array_search('blockrole',$cUser->roles)!==FALSE) {

		if($_GET) {
			if(isset($_GET["post"]) && $_GET["action"]=='edit') {
				$currentPost = $_GET["post"];
				if(array_search($currentPost,$blockPostArray)!==FALSE) {
					//If the current edit post in into the array redirect to your wordpress homepage!
					header( 'Location: ' . get_settings('siteurl') );

I hope that you appreciate this snippet…that is only a starting point to do something more complex, for example you can use the User_Meta fields to attach some post to the user or a database table to store the list of the blocked posts!!

Have a nice coding day!

by on ago.25, 2011, under are you curious?, General

As you know Steve Jobs yesterday resigned as CEO of Apple..and now?

Now that Google has bought Motorola Mobile and now that Nokia will use Wp7 in its mobile devices?Now that Apple has to show to the whole World his Lion teeth…The only thing can we can expect is a period in whitch the shares will be strange and they do some up and down…but now we just have to wait for the next move of Tim Cook (the new CEO of Apple)  and wait for recovery of the shares and the launch of the new devices…

What do you think about these facts?
Add comment or write to myself to increase the prediction of the new Apple era!

Android 2.3 is out!

by on dic.07, 2010, under Android, Developers

Finally…only for developers, the Android 2.3 platform is available as a downloadable component for the Android SDK. The downloadable platform includes an Android library and system image, as well as a set of emulator skins and more. The downloadable platform includes no external libraries.

there are many new feature but the most interesting one (i think) is thise:

Near Field Communications (NFC)

Android 2.3 includes an NFC stack and framework API that lets developers read NDEF tags that are discovered as a user touches an NFC-enabled device to tag elements embedded in stickers, smart posters, and even other devices.

The platform provides the underlying NFC services that work with the device hardware to discover tags when they come into range. On discovering a tag, the platform notifies applications by broadcasting an Intent, appending the tag’s NDEF messages to the Intent as extras. Applications can create Intent filters to recognize and handle targeted tags and messages. For example, after receiving a tag by Intent, applications extract the NDEF messages, store them, alert the user, or handle them in other ways.

The NFC API is available in the android.nfc package. The key classes are:

  • NfcAdapter, which represents the NFC hardware on the device.
  • NdefMessage, which represents an NDEF data message, the standard format in which “records” carrying data are transmitted between devices and tags. Applications can receive these messages from ACTION_TAG_DISCOVERED Intents.
  • NdefRecord, delivered in an NdefMessage, which describes the type of data being shared and carries the data itself.

NFC communication relies on wireless technology in the device hardware, so support for the platform’s NFC features on specific devices is determined by their manufacturers. To determine the NFC support on the current device, applications can call isEnabled() to query theNfcAdapter. The NFC API is always present, however, regardless of underlying hardware support.

To use the NFC API, applications must request permission from the user by declaring <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.NFC"> in their manifest files.

Additionally, developers can request filtering on Android Market, such that their applications are not discoverable to users whose devices do not support NFC. To request filtering, add <uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.nfc" android:required="true">to the application’s manifest.

To look at a sample application that uses the NFC API, see NFCDemo.
