#WPDrama and We, The WordPress Community *Experts!

This post is a mere comments that I posted in Tom McFarlin post about #wpdrama & the WordPress Community.

I am looking from another side. A community that old (11 years now), and this big, bunch of things is bound to happen.

Just to give a simple idea, for a guy who is in this community for say for 6 years, he always thinks in himself, he knows this community, he fell very close to it, and eventually that started him give a kind superior (maybe wrong word, can’t find the better one ATM) attitude. He started to think he owns something, he has to have a say in everything about this community under his radar. And that goes same for a guy who is in community for 2 or even for entire 11 years.

So, maybe for others like you and me, he does not mean much, or maybe to him, we don’t mean much. But we all have a say, we all have got an attitude, we all think we know this better, and we are the ultimate bricks that makes this community.

You see, thats where democratization should take effect. It always should be beyond us. There is always a greater rest. When you build something that big, defining, even its beyond the founder, beyond the core people behind. Yes, its all important. Some stuff are the key to the project, some are the souls, but end of the day its about people. This #Drama is what we create, we, the so called *Expert.

And yes, please criticize me as I call myself *(WordPress Enthusiast)!

Difference Between home_url() and site_url() in WordPress

difference between home_url() and site_url()

difference between home_url() and site_url()

home_url() and site_url() in WordPress is very simple thing, but could be little bit confusing. Look at the image, then I described below –

From Setting -> General
1) WordPress Address (URL) = site_url()
2) Site Address (URL) = home_url( )

You could force rewrite that from wp-config.php too. Remembering is easy, its just opposite to what is says, so in Setting “Site Address (URL)” is home_url not the site_url as it looks from the words. Savvy?
