this is dumb:
- make a string with the taxonomy slug
- make an object with the post type and any other parameters you want to request
- add the term to the request object, with the string from step 1 as the key
3 steps to build the request because someone at automatic decided to use dashes in the wordpress.com portfolio taxonomy. I suppose I could equally blame Angular for auto-unwrapping dashes in object keys. Although there is a second error in wordpress’ architecture, of requiring the term in such a strange GET parameter, instead of in JSON in the request body.
Nice to see Automattic embracing modern web app standards. Validates my (new) method of building a theme.

So, I haven’t actively blogged here since 2007. In the time since, I have:
- moved to texas
- gone toobin’ with automattic folks
- worked as a WordPress developer for 5+ years full time, plus several part time years beyond that
- quit working with WordPress, to work on better things
- gotten divorced
- transitioned my public gender to match what’s in my head/heart
- changed my name
- gotten married
- had my WordPress instance & my employers’ & clients’ WordPress instances hacked a couple dozen times
- given so few fucks about my own site that I let the hosting lapse and never set it back up again
So that’s where I’m at.
Hi. I’m Amie. You can still call me sunburntkamel or SBK if you want.
I’m currently rebuilding my public-facing site using github pages + WordPress.com’s API. So I’m kicking around here again. The little angular app I’m building is open source, so I’ll be posting about it here, now and again. Also I’m using the portfolio feature to host all of the images + project descriptions here on WordPress.com, so I’m kicking around in the dashboard anyway, might as well poke my head out.
That is shocking to me. My resume says i have like.. ~6-7 years experience with WordPress. A recruiter asked me if WordPress had even been around that long. Sounds shocking, but the math ain’t wrong. Been 4+ years that WordPress has been my day job…
dear wordpress.com – when did you lose your mind?
I’ve had an about page since, oh, February 2006.
My domain expired in November (see previous post).
Sunburntkamel.wordpress.com exists, again. It’s unfortunate, I planned to renew my domain mapping, but my paypal account is currently locked. Until I get my letter from paypal, Here sits my geek blog. I’ll see how much it’s really worth renewing, I guess. I’ve closed commentary on all the posts, since they’ll soon go back to redirecting to archgfx.
