Execute External WordPress Functions

To execute WordPress functions in an external directory (i.e., outside of the WordPress install directory), it is necessary to include a call to wp-blog-header.php at the top of the external file.

For example, if your WordPress-powered blog is located in a subdirectory called “blog” and the external file is in the domain root (e.g., the external file is located directly in http://domain.com/), add the following code to the top of the external file:

<?php require_once("./blog/wp-blog-header.php"); ?>

Alternately, you can do this:

<?php require(dirname(__FILE__) .'/blog/wp-blog-header.php'); ?>

Love VLC media player but it fails miserably when it comes to randomizing large collections of mp3 and other files.
Dashlane redesigned, stating proudly they "removed all filigree". Should have kept it; the app now looks generic and boring. Killed your identity.
Working on integration for setaPDF + EDD on the new books subdomain. Good times.

Great tool for checking browser caching for web pages and all included files.
