AramZS on WordPress Events, Directory and Membership -
"By membership do you mean charging for membership? And by directory, do you mean 'of members'?" - Aram Zucker-Scharff
AramZS on Is there a serious discussion about wpautop and why it exists at all? -
"It's really easy to turn off with some simple code or one of a bunch of plugins. The AutoP shouldn't mess up your code at all if you are building it in the text box and not the visual editor, unless you are doing something pretty wonky. As for why it exists, as far as I can tell it is mostly there to keep users from making terrible looking websites by having a lot of badly crunched together text. IMO that's a good reason. Why does it modify the output of text entered into the Text editor? Because it modifies output, not input, which means that this occurs on the front end. If you are writing sane HTML, it should have little to no effect. On a more technical level, WordPress doesn't distinguish input from the Visual vs Text editor as far as I know, so it would be difficult to filter the display of the results based on that. Having a checkmark to turn it on or off is likely the best way to go." - Aram Zucker-Scharff
AramZS on Is it possible to learn how to use wordpress without registering domains and buying hosting? -
"Honestly, Bitnami's install-able image is probably the best way to go. It's the most solid and stable of any of the local machines I've tried." - Aram Zucker-Scharff
AramZS on Adult females oust teenage boys as largest gaming demographic -
"And the 2nd largest portion of best selling computer game sales are Casual Games, at [28.3%]( <-PDF. After that is strategy. Those populations clearly are significant, but do not represent the majority of gamers or the gaming population, making their composition not really as relevant." - Aram Zucker-Scharff
AramZS on Adult females oust teenage boys as largest gaming demographic -
"And more significantly: as the most profitable gaming demographic." - Aram Zucker-Scharff
AramZS on Best sushi places in Northern Virginia area? -
"Sushi Prince, in Fairfax, is one of the absolute best sushi places I've ever been to, anywhere." - Aram Zucker-Scharff

Re: On the WordPress Content Modeling Problem -
"I feel like your average user who needs this type of functionality can create it with categories and sub categories and the one who doesn't feel fulfilled by that functionality can go out and find a plugin that make the process of creating CPTs and custom taxonomies easy. Like: . The real problem is that CPTs are handled as discrete display units with potentially different templates, you're going to need a dev to make those, one way or another." - Aram Zucker-Scharff
