  • Ticket #35806 (Add filter to capability check when checking if user row is editable) created February 12, 2016 1:12 am
    Suggestion Currently in class-wp-users-list-table.php the check for wether or not a displayed user is editable is done using current_user_can( 'list_users' ) on line 398. This is inflexible and doesn't allow finer control over which users are editable by which other users. I suggest filtering this check or filtering the specific capability. Scenario I create WordPress sites for clients in an agency setting. Our sites are highly bespoke, and changing themes or disabling plugins will cause harm to their site. Must-use plugins have their limitations and removing other themes from wp-content/themes only goes so far. On these sites, I want the client to administrate all aspects of the site, except for changing the theme or disabling plugins. To this end, I've created a plugin defining a custom 'manager' role with. This role is highly permissive, save administrating themes or plugins. On the user side I want managers to be able to create users with manager or lower roles, but not create/edit/delete administrators. I can exclude administrators from the list using a users_list_table_query_args filter, but for transparency I want administrators to be listed, just not editable. If either the check or the capability in if ( current_user_can( 'list_users' ) ) { went through apply_filters, I could define a custom capability and filter this check, producing the desired result, or create some other logic. I feel as though this enhancement would be of great benefit, allowing finer grain user control.

  • Ticket #35805 (Reverse page order in wp_list_comments() with newest comments first) created February 12, 2016 12:21 am
    Hey there, since wp 4.4 there were lots of bugs in the wp_list_comments()-function. Some of them are already fixed, now I found another one. If you change the comments order from default (oldest first) to newest first, the page order is wrong (reverse page order). Example You have 4 pages by sending following param you get these pages: page=1 -> 4 page=2 -> 3 page=3 -> 2 page=4 -> 1 How I call this function Inside the post-loop I'm calling: <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); get_template_part( 'templates/content', 'comment' ); The template file templates/content-comment.php has following content: <?php if ( ! defined( 'ABSPATH' ) ) { exit; } ?> <?php global $withcomments; ?> <?php $withcomments = 1; ?> <?php add_filter( 'comments_template', '__return_true' ); ?> <?php if ( comments_open() || get_comments_number() ) : ?> <div class="entry-comment"> <?php comments_template( '/comments-content.php' ); ?> </div> <?php endif; ?> And comments-content.php has following part: <?php wp_list_comments( array( 'page' => $cpaged, // Variable defined before, default: 1 'per_page' => 2 ) ); ?> PS: In ticketing system the version 4.4.2 is not available :-)

  • Ticket #35804 (Add post type to the oEmbed iframe 'title' attribute) created February 11, 2016 10:06 pm
    Currently, the oEmbed output has a title attribute on the <iframe> tag saying "Embedded WordPress Post". <iframe title="Embedded WordPress Post"> It's a hard-coded text. We should replace the "Post" to support custom post types. The attached patch do that. I replaced the old code: esc_attr__( 'Embedded WordPress Post' ) With the new code: esc_attr__( sprintf( /* translators: %s: post type */ __( 'Embedded WordPress %s' ), $post->post_type ) )

WebLog Tools Collection

  • 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 […]

  • Do You Work From Home? March 12, 2013 2:00 pm

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.

    The WP REST API is slated to be included into WordPress this year. This is one of the most drastic shifts (if not the most drastic) in the WordPress landscape. Companies like Wired.com, the New York Times and Rant Sports are using the API today to craft incredible experiences on top of WordPress. We often talk of vanity metrics, ideas like “WordPress runs 23% of the web”. Once the WP REST API is in WordPress, these become meaningless. WordPress will eventually be running parts of 100% of the web. This talk outlines the history of the API, the differences between the current stable version and what will likely be in WordPress, as well as paradigms and patterns within the project and some practical examples of how it might be used.Presentation Slides »

Die Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter in einem Team oder einem Unternehmen sind der wichtige, oft nicht wahrgenommene Teil hinter einer Lösung.

The results may surprise you. Free and open source software has fueled Penn Manor School District’s classrooms for over a decade. The strategy culminated in a high school 1:1 learning program, where students received 1700 school-supplied laptops exclusively loaded with Linux and open source software. Charlie will tell the unusual story of how Penn Manor applied open source principles to better prepare students for college, careers and beyond. Central to the program is a student apprenticeship, where high school students form the core of a sophisticated help desk team, and write code used by their peers everyday.

    Nicht „Was die Welt im Innersten zusammenhält“, sondern was uns WordPress möglichst weit öffnet, das sind die Hooks. Egal ob Theme oder Plugin, um etwas in WordPress zu ändern, zu erweitern, umzubauen und das ohne dass man direkt im WordPress Code ändert, dazu muss man verstehen was Hooks sind und wie diese Funktionieren. Egal ob man ein komplexes Plugin bauen möchte oder nur in seinem verwendeten Theme z.B. den Titel der Beiträge manipulieren möchte.

  • Mateusz Piaszczak: Czy twój WordPress czuje się bezpiecznie? January 26, 2016 3:37 am
    Walka z zagrożeniami płynącymi z popularnych błędów nie jest łatwa. Szczególnie, gdy błędy te są związane z zabezpieczeniami, które włączamy z własnej woli. Czym w praktyce są błędy o nazwie potocznej Zero-day? Dowiemy się tego na konkretnym przykładzie. Ignorowanie informacji o wymaganej aktualizacji do najnowszej wersji WordPressa przestanie przychodzić z łatwością, gdy poznamy mechanizm wstrzykiwania złośliwego kodu do modułu komentarzy, przy wykorzystaniu podatności na ataki typu XSS. Symulacja ataku zostanie przeprowadzona za pomocą narzędzia Metasploit na Kali Linux’ie.

    Jak sprawić, aby to co publikujemy na stronach opartych na WordPressie było dostępne dla osób z niepełnosprawnościami, czy osób starszych. Opowiem pokrótce czym jest standard WCAG 2.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines), jak go zaimplementować i jaki będzie miało to wpływ na dostępność strony. Czyli innymi słowy, jak sprawić aby niewidomi „zobaczyli” nasze strony czy blogi oparte na WordPressie.

    Sposoby na uproszczenie pracy i zastosowanie dużo szybszych rozwiązań dla mniej i bardziej doświadczonych developerów: - obsługa WP z poziomu CLI (Command Line Interface) - automatyzacja zadań przy tworzeniu pluginów i motywów poprzez właściwie użycie takich technologii jak Grunt, Bower i Gulp - obsługa Git zainstalowanego na serwerze, a co za tym idzie ułatwień przy pracy na wielu środowiskach przy większej grupie programistów

  • Stefan Fröhlich: Eigene Themes from Scratch January 25, 2016 7:38 pm
    Für viele Projekte braucht es lediglich einen Bruchteil der Funktionalität und des Codes sogenannter “Premium”-Themes oder Frameworks – denen dafür andere, wichtige Features oft fehlen. Um die Projektanforderungen und das gewünschte Design entsprechend umzusetzen, ist es dann deutlich sinnvoller, ein individuelles Theme zu entwickeln. Die Anwender erhalten so ein intuitives und übersichtliches System mit den Optionen, die sie wirklich brauchen. Und der Browser schlankeren Code ohne unnötigen Ballast.Presentation Slides »

  • Karolina Gorczyca: Obowiązki blogera a przetwarzanie danych osobowych January 23, 2016 6:50 pm
    Celem prezentacji jest rozwianie często pojawiających się wątpliwości, co do tego czym jest przetwarzanie danych osobowych, kiedy użytkownicy mają z nim do czynienia oraz jakie konsekwencje prawne związane są z gromadzeniem i używaniem danych przekazanych przez innych użytkowników. Poruszone zostanie zagadnienie w jaki sposób legalnie gromadzić i przetwarzać dane oraz jakie działania należy podjąć planując wysyłanie informacji poprzez newsletter, jaka powinna być treść zgody udzielanej przez użytkowników, a także czy w świetle polskiego prawa można legalnie korzystać z narzędzi takich jak MailChimp, czy Freshmail. Wskazane zostaną również formalności, jakich należy dopełnić oraz procedury i koszty z nimi związane. W ostatniej części rozwiane zostaną wątpliwości jakie działania należy podjąć, gdy któryś z użytkowników umieści wulgarny lub naruszający cudze dobra osobiste komentarz. Czy, kiedy i komu należy przekazać jego dane oraz kto ponosi odpowiedzialność za treść komentarzy pozostawionych na naszym blogu.Presentation Slides »

Ulubiony klient FTP, szczypta sproszkowanej mandragory, sidebar, oko nietoperza, content, slider i eliksir na: „I will not buy this tobacconist because it is scratched” gotowy!

  • Jakub Milczarek: WordPress w schronisku górskim January 23, 2016 6:39 pm
    Wiele schronisk górskich w Polsce w ogóle nie ma swoich stron informacyjnych w sieci, a nawet jeśli takowe istnieją to raczej mogą być pokazywane jako dobre studium przypadku na zajęciach z historii Internetu lub szkoleniach z UX (User Experience). Postanowiłem odrobinę poprawić ten stan rzeczy i stworzyć uniwersalny serwis katalogujący schroniska górskie. W trakcie prezentacji opowiem o zastosowanych rozwiązaniach. Pokażę, jak w prosty sposób stworzyłem własne typy treści i własne pola odpowiadające za wszelkie „parametry” schroniska. Zobaczymy jak można wprowadzić „inteligentne” wyszukiwanie w WordPressie oraz udostępnić użytkownikom formularz do zgłaszania brakujących schronisk, na podstawie którego tworzy się od razu szkic wpisu wymagający jedynie przeglądu przez administratora. Pokażę również system oceniania schronisk działający w dwóch trybach: dla zwykłych odwiedzających i dla zarejestrowanych ekspertów. Nie zabraknie też planów na przyszłość…Presentation Slides »

Kilka dobrych rad, jak zmniejszyć czas otrzymania pomocy na płatnym supporcie.Presentation Slides »

  • Dawid Rzepczynski: Migracja z Drupala do WordPress January 22, 2016 5:47 pm
    W teorii migracja z Drupala do WordPress polega na użyciu kilku funkcji wyciągających dane z Drupala i kilku funkcji WordPress dodających użytkowników oraz posty z załącznikami. Praktyka to weryfikuje. Gdy mamy do czynienia z prawie pół milionem elementów w MySQL o różnym typie i różnej strukturze oraz ponad 8GB załączników rozrzuconych w katalogach wtyczek staje się to dużym wyzwaniem. W 30 minutowej prezentacji Dawid przedstawia w skrócie jak wygląda migracja dużego portalu do WordPress: - na co zwracać uwagę aby przerzucenie pół miliona krotek i ponad 8GB danych trwało max 15 minut - co jest lepsze: wykorzystanie funkcji CMS , kodu proceduralnego, czy kopii MySQL do MySQL - jakie narzędzia użyto do pracy z tabelami mającymi kilka set MB - w jakiej kolejności dodawać dane do WordPress i BuddyPress - jak przygotować się do zmiany silnika CMS aby zminimalizować wahania w Google Tags: Drupal, migration, Drupal migration to WordPressPresentation Slides »
