    For an IDE that drives things forward in terms of improving code quality and standards in the PHP ecosystem (refactoring tools, PHP_Codesniffer integration, Composer integration, phpUnit, etc) it feels somewhat disingenuous for you to suddenly add support for WordPress, a project that remains firmly rooted in the ‘bad old days’ despite its popularity. YMMV.

      i looked at the code of wordpress plugin, is just a small plugin with “no magic”. just reuse of openapi. so it dont cost too much resources, i think .)

    You are officially the funniest thing I have heard all darned day. Bless you!

    DUDE!!! We’re writing PHP. Our fail has already occurred. I have to rewrite the company news app. So be it. We are in hell for a few weeks no matter what. Hopefully you’ll get to go home to a nice world of C++ and C# or Java (or whatever floats your boat, as long as it is strongly typed and has a compiler!) and are not stuck out here in the land of WordPress and other obsolescence like legacy CodeIgniter projects forever. PHP today is like going back to college, except it feels like somebody wrote this to only feel like an object oriented language, its like someone wrote the Java or C# ecosphere using a 2002 copy of Visual Basic.

    Actually, I kind of like CI to tell the truth. Easier to write from scratch with it than to pound some copy of Typeo3 into shape. And its easy to test. 😀

      So that’s it then? Use PHP and you are ‘stuck out here in the land of WordPress and other obsolescence like legacy CodeIgniter projects forever’. Is that all that PHP is to you?

      What an unfortunate attitude to take! So much has been done in the past few years to improve PHP and promote development of modern, scalable, secure applications yet it still suffers due to it’s relationship to these legacy projects.

      I’d like to say this validates @DavidFrame’s point, particularly when they could’ve added support for some of the more modern/popular projects, but the whole situation is just disheartening. Clearly there’s still a long way to go before people start taking the language more seriously, even though for many it is THE language of the internet.

    Awesome idea to remove scrollbars!
    Let’s remove keyboard and monitor also!
    Scrollbars are for noobs.

    • Mark

      I don’t think I’ve ever actually used the scrollbar in PhpStorm thanks to all the hotkeys, but even just for knowing where you are in the file, it’s useful. Also, the fact that it doesn’t come back when you mouse over it is absurd. This was a bad idea. It should be configurable at least.

    Please add support for the WordPress theme systems as well :) And what about adding support for phpBB as well?

    @David Frame: WordPress is the most popular web CMS on the planet, why wouldn’t they add support for it? There’s a reason that a substantial part of it’s code base is still procedural, and that reason is that it’s the most popular web CMS on the planet. When you have that many people using it, you have to exercise an abundance of caution of conservatism to prevent massive scale breaking changes.

    The good news is that WordPress has a massive community of dedicated, intelligent, and talented contributors that drive it’s evolution ever onward. It’s always improving, it’s core is always getting better, and all new contributions are appropriately object oriented.

    So your complaint isn’t just disingenuous, it’s outrageous. Adding WordPress support doesn’t just make sense for developers, it makes sense for JetBrains. I’ll tell you what, does Sublime or Netbeans support WordPress like this? Nope. These updates make PhpStorm with the while to every single WordPress developer out there.*

    * Save for the infuriating and as-yet-unremedied problem of PhpStorm not recognizing constants defined within a class.
