I have problems with my custom user fields on updating the user profile withing the /wp-admin/user-edit.php. The values of the huna and ki field are deleted. The validation and altUserID still show up correctly. Where is my error in the code? Thanks for your help!

Create link to custom URI-scheme on home-screen (eg. zoomus://…) to start app

Is there a way to create an app-icon-link to a non HTTP-url and place it on the home screen?
I’m trying to add an icon to auto-join a zoom-meeting.

The idea are to pass parameters like meeting id and password to the app Zoom, that uses the URI: zoomus://
Eg. zoomus://

I have done similar on iOS / iPadOS using the Shortcut app.
Thanks for advice!

Modify custom attribute value before place order

I have a custom attribute that is placed in the Billing Address section. Now there’s a condition that I only need to save the first 200 character of my custom attribute text box. Is there an event or observer that will intercept this request before proceeding to save/place order? So basically on the checkout page after inputting the text in my custom attribute when user click the Place Order button I want to check this input first if it’s beyond the limit then I will trim the text. How do I do this?

Custom taxonomy template shows different content if there are children

I am trying to create a template for my custom post type (products) custom taxonomy (product_category) that will show sub categories if there are any and but if there aren’t, then it should list the products.

As an example



so if the url is loaded (/product_category/category1) then it will list the products in that category.

However if (/product_category/category2) is loaded, then it will show the names “subcategory1” and “subcategory2” but no actual products.

Here is what I came up with so far, but it feels “hacky” is there a better way to do this?

get_header(); ?>

    <div id="primary">
        <main id="main">

            do_action( 'generate_before_main_content' );

            if ( have_posts() ) :

                $term = get_queried_object();
                $term_id = $term->term_id;
                $taxonomy_name = $term->taxonomy;

                $termchildren = get_term_children( $term_id, $taxonomy_name );
                if ( $termchildren  ) {
                        //there are kids...just show the children categories.
                                            // we have kids...just show the terms.
                   echo '<ul>';
                   foreach ( $termchildren as $child ) {
                       $term = get_term_by( 'id', $child, $taxonomy_name );
                       echo '<li><a href="' . get_term_link( $child, $taxonomy_name ) . '">' . $term->name . '</a></li>';
                   echo '</ul>';
                } else { 
                    //no kids...right on to the products.
                    echo '<div class="productCategories grid">';
                        while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
                            <div class="product_cat">

entities – Create Custom Select Webform Element

I asked this last time with ‘Select Other’, but I am still not understanding how to change custom element’s type. In this scenario, I am attempting to build a Select type webform element. I am reusing the Webform Example attached to the webform module. But my issue is that I can not change it from an <input> to a <select> type.

Inside, webform_example_elementsrcElementWebformExampleElement.php I have tried:

  public function getInfo() {
    $class = get_class($this);
    return (
      '#title' => $this->t('Facility'),
      '#type' => 'Select',
      '#input' => false,

AND I have tried:

  public static function processWebformAssignedBy(&$element, FormStateInterface $form_state, &$complete_form) {
    $element('#tree') = true;
    $element('#type') = 'select';
    $element('#input') = false;
    $element('#options') = (
      '1' => 'One',
      '2' => 'Two',

Using X-Debug, when the page is loaded I get:

$element = {array} (48)
 #type = "select"
 #title = "current_facility"
 #multiple = false
 #access_create_roles = {array} (2)
 #access_update_roles = {array} (2)
 #access_view_roles = {array} (2)
 #webform = "generate_system_number_form_1_"
 #webform_id = "generate_system_number_form_1_--current_facility"
 #webform_key = "current_facility"
 #webform_parent_key = "net_new_process_information"
 #webform_parent_flexbox = false
 #webform_depth = {int} 1
 #webform_children = {array} (0)
 #webform_multiple = false
 #webform_composite = false
 #webform_parents = {array} (2)
 #admin_title = "current_facility"
 #webform_plugin_id = "facility"
 #webform_submission = "121"
 #access = true
 #webform_element = true
 #allowed_tags = {array} (78)
 #element_validate = {array} (1)
 #pre_render = {array} (1)
 #after_build = {array} (1)
 #_webform_access = true
 #_webform_states = {array} (0)
 #theme = "input__webform_example_element__webform_generate_system_number_form_1__form__current_facility"
 #theme_wrappers = {array} (1)
 #formdazzle = {array} (3)
 #process = {array} (3)
 #input = false
 #value_callback = {array} (2)
 #defaults_loaded = true
 #tree = true
 #parents = {array} (1)
 #array_parents = {array} (3)
 #weight = {float} 0.007
 #processed = false
 #required = false
 #attributes = {array} (1)
 #title_display = "before"
 #description_display = "after"
 #errors = null
 #id = "edit-current-facility"
 #name = "current_facility"
 #value = ""
 #options = {array} (2)

But after returning, I still get an <input> field. Any suggestions how to alter the input type to be select? Thank you

magento2 – Add TOTAL ROW for Magento Custom Grid

I was wondering if there’s a way to add a Total Row in a Custom Grid in Magento 2? I already have a Custom Report using Custom Grid in Magento so I made like 20 reports all in all. But client want to add a total in each of the tables but I can’t find any source that will tell me how to do it. Surely I can just copy the approach in vendor/magento/module_report but redoing all the report I did will be very time consuming. And it doesn’t make sense to redo all the code just to add a TOTAL ROW in each of the table. For now I have this

enter image description here

But what I’m trying to achieve is something like this

enter image description here

As you can see the TOTAL Row should be inside the first Grid Table and not in a separate table. Is there a way to achieve this in Magento 2 Custom Grid?

Note: I already checked the vendor/magento/module_report but this require me to redo all my code for custom grid. Is there a simpler and correct way to do this?
