    I noticed that constants defined in must-use plugin were undefined if used in object-cache.php dropin plugin. Looking at wp-includes/load.php the object-cache.php check is loaded prior to must-use plugins. I assumed must-use plugins are always loaded before all other plugins. If this is not a bug and it functions as intended, updating documentation would be helpful to note that must-use plugins are loaded after dropin plugins. ​ Thanks!

    WordPress send emails, using wp_mail() function, to inform the site admin when some important tasks are done and when it needs user confirmation. In #37940 we standardized email subjects used by WordPress. We updated subject texts, added unified translation comments and added site title as a prefix to all the email subjects. Now we should standardized the filters used to filter WordPress emails. Why? Because not all emails can be filtered. I prefer to do this in two steps: Separate the email subject from the wp_mail() function. Add new filters to filter the email subject. See the attached patches.

  • 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 Though it’s only specific to the blogging platform, News is also worth watching for WordPress development news, as 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 […]

    The impending release of WordPress 3.6 has been pushed back one more 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 […]

  • Amanda Webb: How to Revitalise your Blog Content for More Exposure and Sales April 19, 2019 2:14 pm
    Blogging was always about writing, but in 2018 our readers have less time to consume content and more content to consume. If you want to continue to reach and grow your audience you’ll need to think beyond words alone. That’s a realisation I had in 2016, it’s one that made me change the way I blogged. Since then I’ve built stronger relationships with readers, won multiple awards for my blog and added new income streams to my business. I’m going to show you what I did and how you too can supercharge your blog with audio, video and visual content.
  • David Hoy: Who needs PHP? April 19, 2019 2:12 pm
    For years I held myself back thinking that because I couldn’t comprehend PHP there was a limit to how far I could go as a developer. With WordPress and plugins like Toolset this is absolutely untrue. There is no data management problem I cannot solve with these two powerful platforms working together. In this workshop , I want to demonstrate how quickly a front end form can be created and then how the data captured can be manipulated to create awesome solutions for our clients. Any of the new form builders can be used, but Toolset is my go to as the support is unreal. To date I’ve built recruitment platforms, tourist portals, an entire HR Suite and much more using Toolset. For WordPress users this knowledge could be very useful, for WordPress Developers this knowledge opens the door to lots of repeat business from their existing client base.
  • Anaelle Sorignet: Slow content : publier moins, publier mieux April 18, 2019 12:39 pm
    Nous produisons bien plus d’informations que nous ne pouvons en consommer : à quoi bon ? Cette frénésie de publications entraîne un nivellement par le bas et dévalorise les contenus, dégageant un boulevard pour les fausses informations et les articles racoleurs. Et si nous ralentissions le rythme ? Et si nous prenions le temps de réfléchir au sens de nos contenus, de publier des articles de qualité, utiles à ceux qui les lisent, au monde qui nous entoure ? Le slow content est avantageux sur tous les plans : il améliore l’image de marque de ceux qui le pratique, bénéficie au référencement naturel… Mais si l’on va plus loin que l’aspect « communication digitale », le slow content est une véritable « écologie des contenus », nécessaire compte tenu de l’impact du numérique sur l’environnement.

  • Rémi Corson: Quel impact le web a t-il sur la planète ? April 18, 2019 12:28 pm
    Une recherche sur Google génère 7 grammes de CO2. C’est l’équivalent de l’énergie nécessaire pour faire bouillir une tasse de thé. C’est aussi l’équivalent du rejet en CO2 de votre voiture pour une distance de 15 mètres. Et ce n’est juste qu’une recherche sur Google. Qu’en est-il de nos milliers d’e-mails, de nos photos stockées sur le cloud, de notre consommation de musique via Spotify ou Deezer ? Sans parler de YouTube ou Netflix. Chaque interaction web à une réelle incidence sur notre planète, une incidence physique. Internet parait un peu magique, on clique et ça fonctionne. Mais derrière toutes ces actions se cache un désastre planétaire, des centrales à charbon qui dévorent des montagnes pour nourrir des datacenters, une consommation d’énergie nucléaire phénoménale, et des chiffres à vous donner le tournis. WordPress n’est pas en reste, avec une part de marché incontestable. Nous verrons comment, à notre échelle, chacun peut réduire son impact écologique en tant qu’utilisateur, utilisatrice ou créateur, créatrice d’internet.Presentation Slides »

  • Bill Gilmore: Building Better Themes April 17, 2019 7:54 pm
    In my talk I will cover a wide range of interesting WordPress API features. We will start with the basics like pulling dynamic content from pages and posts, moving onto using featured images and custom fields to a build a reusable banner as a chunk of php to call into our theme templates. If any of that sounded worrying please remember I am not a PHP developer, WordPress just makes life easy for all of us if you know to to use it. We will also cover topics to give your end user move control like custom shortcodes, widgets areas, menus and author bios. We will then dig into creating custom post types and advanced custom fields, all made easy with Toolset Types plugin. Then we will focus on how to pull post types into templates using wp-query. Finally we will look at WordPress customise features giving your end user control over all the content we have built so far as well as the colours, logo image and style of the site. This will wrap up into a dynamic theme with a user friendly interface… and there might even be some free DLC resources I have been working on. Please remember I’m going to keep this talk in a language and terminology that everyone can understand, I am not a backend PHP robot, I’m an experienced developer and trainer.

  • Heather Burns and Marissa Goldsmith: Getting the Balance Right: GDPR and Google Analytics April 17, 2019 3:00 pm
    The web sites and apps we create, both for ourselves and for our clients, need to collect user analytics for a range of reasons ranging from workflow to user experience to security. However, user tracking can cross the line from insightful anonymised data collection to intrusive personally identifiable monitoring. GDPR, Europe’s revamp of its data protection and privacy regime, becomes enforceable on 25 May – the day before WordCamp Belfast. The incoming ePrivacy Directive revamp also renews rules on analytics. This double overhaul creates refreshed obligations for you to inform your site users about any counting, tracking, and monitoring you carry out on your web sites and apps, to provide users with options over your counting and tracking, and to ensure that your data collection respects your visitors privacy. In our talk, we will help you to achieve a healthy balance between data collection and privacy which respects your business, your users, and your refreshed legal obligations. Our talk will cover: How to understand your audience so that you can understand their data Why minimal data collection and retention makes sense from an ethical perspective What user tracking is and is not permitted under GDPR as well as the ePrivacy Directive revamp How to explain your use of analytics and tracking in your privacy notices How to provide your visitors with an opt-out of analytics and tracking How to collect analytics with the greatest respect for user privacy How to ensure information is not personally identifiable to an individual (Deaggregation/anonymisation/pseudonymisation) How to determine a data retention and deletion period Dealing with third party tools: Google Analytics as our example What other forms of tracking cross ethical and legal boundaries

    Open Source is an incredibly powerful concept that can be seen at the heart of progress and advancement in many spheres of life. The idea that people from every corner of the globe can come together to exchange ideas and build products that profoundly affect our lives is as crazy as it is exciting. I’m fascinated by the fact that people who have never met can come together to form a community that produces software and/or hardware products like CMSs, cars, building equipment, AI appliances and apparel that help to enable whole swaths of people with limited financial, physical or other resources make meaningful contributions and improve their quality of life. I talk briefly about the concept of Open source and specifically about how WordPress has played a significant part in taking this Nigerian university dropout around the world and exposing him to a community of the most incredible human beings at the forefront of democratising publishing and why Open Source should be near and dear to your heart.

    Negli ultimi decenni le interfacce uomo-macchina dei sistemi informatici si sono evolute incessantemente con l’obiettivo di rendere l’interazione con gli utenti sempre più semplice e intuitiva. Ci sono però ambiti specifici in cui l’interfaccia a “riga di comando” si dimostra tutt’oggi uno strumento insostituibile. Ne è la dimostrazione il crescente successo del progetto WP-CLI, supportato ufficialmente da WordPress. Non è indispensabile essere programmatori o sistemisti per trarre un vantaggio diretto e tangibile dall’utilizzo di strumenti basati su riga di comando. Questo talk, dopo una rapida introduzione sull’argomento, presenterà una carrellata di esempi pratici e di semplice applicazione, in cui l’uso della command-line può far risparmiare tantissimo tempo.Presentation Slides »

  • Pascal Birchler: WordPress Internationalization Workflows April 14, 2019 12:14 pm
    Soon after the release of WordPress 15 years ago, support for internationalization was added to the software. This meant that themes, plugins, and WordPress itself could be translated. This was a huge deal as WordPress is used all over the world, in countries where English is not the main language. WordPress was quickly translated into German, Japanese and many more languages. Over the years, WordPress has steadily improved the way we have to work with internationalization. However, challenges still exist and there will always be new ones ahead. Projects like Gutenberg and ecosystems beyond force us to continuously iterate. In this talk you’ll learn how to make use of the latest and greatest technology to make your WordPress plugin or theme fully internationalized. Pascal is going to highlight how you can leverage the powers of WordPress, GlotPress, and WP-CLI to improve the translation workflow in your WordPress projects.Presentation Slides »
