Re: Post count-based titles
There’s no issue with usermeta accuracy if you hook onto both new and deleted posts.
Fair enough, if you get theme authors to replace the post_author_link with your function. To get the same functionality, of course, you’d also need to add a link to the profile, but query count is the same, that’s true.
I don’t think it’s complex either. I just think it’s not “just a modification” of the post count plugin, no matter what method you use. It’s not irritating for you to say it’s not complex, the irritating part is when you completely ignore what I say.
