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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Jens Ahrengot Boddum: JavaScript og WordPress August 22, 2014 12:24 am
    De websites som trækker priser hos Webby, Creative Circle, The FWA og Awwwards, har de én ting til fælles: De bruger JavaScript for at gøre brugeroplevelsen flydende, hurtig og interaktiv. Jeg har udviklet flere prisvindende websites, som bruger en stor mængde JavaScript. På de 40 minutter vil vi kigge på nogle af mine cases, og hvordan jeg bruger JavaScript i mine WordPress-løsninger. Jeg vil også gennemgå, hvilke værktøjer jeg bruger, til at holde min kode skalerbar, overskuelig og sørge for, at performance er i top. Selv om oplæggets indhold er komplekst, vil jeg så vidt muligt holde mig til koncepter og eksempler, frem for at dykke ned i koden, så alle med basal forståelse for udvikling af WordPress-temaer kan være med. Er der efterfølgende spørgsmål, så fang mig i pausen efter mit oplæg, og jeg vil glædeligt uddybe den måde, jeg arbejder på. Presentation Slides »

    WordPress is a CMS, a content management system. Anything you can do on a website, you can do on a WordPress website. WordPress allows you or your web firm to make quick, economical changes with your content without disturbing your design. The open source repository of plugins — pieces of software you can plug into your site — also allow you to have functionality that would be very expensive and time consuming if you had to have it built.

  • Cathrine Wind Fallesen: Responsivt design August 22, 2014 12:23 am
    Jeg er af den holdning, at man ikke længere kan frasige sig at lave et responsivt design, og min tilgang til det er nok mere konceptuelt og teoretisk, da jeg endnu ikke har meget erfaring med større implementeringer af denne holdning. Jeg kender dog til forskellige spændende frameworks, og giver et oplæg, der har et fundament i en mere grundlæggende responsiv forståelse, og understøttet med praktisk eksempler eller hjælpemidler, hovedsagligt med tanke på mindre projekter og nybegyndere. Jeg vil også debattere bedre tekniske løsninger i forhold til det responsive, hvis nogen ville have kommentarer til det. Presentation Slides »
