This could be Rotterdam… the 2019 VIP Grand Meetup

It’s that time ago when the whole of WordPress VIP have their Grand Meetup. This year, we’re in Rotterdam.

We stayed at the nhow hotel, which is rather splendid, architecture wise, using the hotel facilities for our meetings, workshops, etc.

How not to do menus

Whilst new rules are sorting out many aspects of WordPress development that causes headaches for users (e.g. standardised admin messaging), how plugins (and, in some cases, themes) allocate menus in WP Admin are not currently covered.

As a result, some developers (and it’s note-worthy that most of those that fall into this category are making a living from their plugin work) are happy to push the level of acceptability.

So, in this article I’m going to demonstrate some of the things that developers will do with their menus and compare that to the standard approach taken by the core version of WordPress.
