Extend notification emails in wp-e-commerce

The wp-e-commerce shopping cart plugin is probably the most popular cart plugin for WordPress, but it isn't always the most easily customised; in fact, theming it can be a nightmare. One little niggle I had to fix recently was that the notification emails don't include relevant purchase information such as which shipping method was selected, or the per-item comments from the purchaser (e.g. a message to be included inside a book flap).

Conditionally disable Pages Children in WordPress

Whilst WordPress might be a very easy tool for managing website content, and is making great inroads into the CMS market, it isn't very convenient for editing large numbers of pages on a very large website. That's where the Pages Children plugin comes to the rescue, breaking the page administration lists down into a nice, manageable hierarchy. But it doesn't play nice with another great WordPress plugin, Role Scoper, which is also likely to be installed on large websites. Hooks to the rescue!

Filter documents in WordPress media library

The WordPress media library has a few nice features for managing uploaded files. One thing it doesn't do is make it easy to find documents. It makes it easy to filter all the files to list only the images, or video, or even audio files, but not documents like PDFs, Word documents, spreadsheets etc. But adding a Documents link to the media library is just a few lines of code away.

Autocomplete in WordPress plugin admin

I just had to find a way to add autocomplete to an admin screen for a WordPress plugin I'm writing. Although a few pieces of jQuery UI are bundled into the WordPress distribution, that doesn't include jQuery UI autocomplete. But on the way to investigating how to drop that into my plugin, I discovered that WordPress does bundle in a similar, simpler plugin called jquery.suggest.
