  • WordPress 4.3 Release Candidate July 29, 2015 11:50 pm
    The release candidate for WordPress 4.3 is now available. We’ve made more than 100 changes since releasing Beta 4 a week ago. RC means we think we’re done, but with millions of users and thousands of plugins and themes, it’s possible we’ve missed something. We hope to ship WordPress 4.3 on Tuesday, August 18, but we […]

    WordPress 4.3 includes a change to get_transient(). As reported in #23881 and #30380, get_transient() had a check for get_option( $transient_timeout ) < time(). Because get_option() can return false and false is always < time() 😖, get_transient() could delete transient timeout options in an unexpected way or cause two more unnecessary queries. WordPress 4.3 now checks […]

Settings are linked to controls which are responsible for manipulating them. When a setting is changed it gets pushed into the preview window so that the modification […]

We talked about a handful of these "open new window" tickets as an accessibility team, and came to these conclusions: no links should open in a new window (to be consistent throughout the Admin) already made settings might be lost, so before following a link, the user must be warned like: “there are unsaved changes….” an alternative, but complex solution would be that settings are auto saved before leaving a window we should do a search on all links that open in a new window in the Admin We'll comment with tickets #31363 and #31386, suggesting to close them.

  • Ticket #33241 (wp_get_http should stream directly to the file) created August 3, 2015 12:33 pm
    Right now, wp_get_http does a regular HTTP request via WP_Http, then saves out to a file. This necessitates loading the entire file into memory, then saving it out, which can massively increase the memory usage. This is important in imports (the only place I can see where the function is used). Instead, we should use WP_Http's native file streaming functionality, which pushes the bytes into the file as we go, rather than loading into memory. In addition, I'd propose we deprecate wp_get_http, and anything using it (notably WordPress Importer) should use the normal HTTP functions.

  • Ticket #33240 (Introduce a capability for previewing posts) created August 3, 2015 11:36 am
    In order to preview an unpublished post (ie. draft or pending), a user needs the edit_posts capability for that post type (src). There is a valid use case where a site requires a user role which has the capability to preview unpublished posts but not edit them, for example for editorial review/sign-off, layout review, early access, etc. You can ​get around this by using a combination of the posts_results and the_posts filters, but this isn't very future-proof because the post results skip a bunch of logic that occurs between those two filters. A preview_post meta capability and a preview_posts primitive capability could be introduced and implemented wherever the edit_posts capability is used in regard to previewing unpublished posts. By default, it will simply map to the edit_posts capability. Thoughts?

  • I am taking my leave of Weblog Tools Collection, and thanks for everything! March 31, 2013 1:41 pm
    Not many of the present readers might know me very well, and that in part, is the reason that I have made the decision to transfer WLTC to more willing and presently capable hands. I am a stranger on my blog and the time has come for me to make sure that this blog, its contents and its knowledge are archived and preserved and maybe rejuvenated at a later time. I delved into blogging tools back in 2004 when I started my Masters degree in CS. I wanted some code to mess around with in my free time and everyone was talking about blogging. I looked into a variety of tools, built a small Linux server for myself at home, and installed a few of the tools that were freely available at that time. I had a heck of a time getting a hold of MT (Moveable Type, the most well-known name) and […]

  • Where to Find WordPress News March 31, 2013 12:05 am
    The landscape of news has changed so much over the last few years that news about a particular topic or platform is readily available to anyone within an instant. With WordPress, I imagine that could be one of the perks of powering over 16% of the web, but it’s true that news is becoming incredibly accessible. In short, news is everywhere. Speaking of WordPress in general, you can of course acquire official direct news from WordPress News, but you can also take a peak behind the curtain and follow news in the making at Make WordPress.org. Though it’s only specific to the WordPress.com blogging platform, WordPress.com News is also worth watching for WordPress development news, as WordPress.com users often get access to new WordPress features before they’re released, so you’ll be able to try new features rather than just read about them. There’s more news than just direct official news, like I […]

  • WordPress 3.6 Release Delayed March 14, 2013 2:00 pm
    The impending release of WordPress 3.6 has been pushed back one more week to April 29. At this time, WordPress 3.6 is not yet feature complete (meaning that all intended new features have not been entirely finished), so the decision was made to push the first beta release back two weeks to March 27 and the final release back one week to April 29. This will allow the team time to focus on finalizing the in-progress new features so that they (and the brave folks who enjoy running beta software) can simply focus on testing and bug fixing rather than polishing up partial features.

  • Do You Work From Home? March 12, 2013 2:00 pm
    There has been a lot of talk lately about working from home and maintaining a distributed workforce. Web-based software, like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal, are taking over the publishing industry and allow you to work from anywhere with an internet connection. Though, even though they can be managed  from home, working from home and maintaining a distributed workforce is not yet broadly acknowledged in society as a successful and efficient alternative to working in an office. Despite working with software that doesn’t need to be tied to one specific workstation, you could still find yourself tied to a desk in cubicle. I work full-time for Automattic and have the pleasure of both working from home and setting my own hours. After all, I only need a browser, an email client, and IRC client, and Skype to do my job. A desk is nice, but there’s no one saying that said desk has to be […]

  • Chris Van Patten: Connecting the Dots August 3, 2015 6:29 pm
    WordPress can do a lot out of the box, but what if you need to integrate with a service that doesn't have a WordPress plugin? What if you want to automate a task without touching code? How do you take advantage of the service-driven web so your WordPress project can break out of its shell and make new friends on the Internet playground? This talk has all the answers. You learn how to connect to a remote API (with minimal code), what webhooks are (and why they're awesome), and how to harness the power of “connector” services like Zapier and IFTTT to automate common tasks (without getting a headache). Want to get more power out of your WordPress site? This is the talk for you!

  • Zach LeBar: Keynote – Coming Back to WordPress August 3, 2015 1:22 pm
    When I started making websites 7 years ago, WordPress was the hip new thing all the cool kids were using. So I used it too. But then time went by, and the web changed. The tools and techniques that I used changed too. I moved away from WordPress. Now I’m back. Let me show you why I’ve returned, and why I believe that what WordPress has become over the last 7 years has ensured its continued success.
