  • Ticket #51873 (Middle East countries all missing country codes) created November 25, 2020 4:03 pm
    Currently, WordPress does not support country codes for any Middle East countries such as Qatar, UAE, or Saudi Arabia. They are all lumped into one as "ar." There is no ar-QA, ar-AE, etc. ​ This may not be an issue for a simple blog site but WordPress is increasingly being used for commercial applications and ecommerce sites now days. I do realize that current WordPress internationalization scheme is based on language, not based on country. This poses a serious inconvenience and added development cost for a business application that wishes to serve contents and services based on country, not language. Let me illustrate one example. Nigeria, the largest country in Africa (in terms of population) does not have its own country code. So based on WordPress scheme of things, Nigeria has to be lumped with one of the six English codes WordPress provides since Nigeria's official language is English. If "en" is chosen, Nigeria is then has to be grouped with many other countries that use English as their official language. What does Nigeria have in common with Tonga? I am not making this proposal for our current needs. We have already implemented our custom router scheme to address this issue. But coming up with a solution wasn't easy. It certainly wasn't cheap. I am pointing this out for other businesses and startups that will run into this issue in the future. Regards, Matthew S. Park General Counsel & CTO MM Global Services, Inc.

  • Ticket #51872 (Registering a custom taxonomy with `show_in_quick_edit` set to 'false' ...) created November 25, 2020 8:20 am
    When a custom taxonomy, either public or private, is registered with show_ui = true and show_in_quick_edit = false as arguments, and the user, in the edit.php screen, clicks on a 'Quick edit' link for a (Custom) Post to which the custom taxonomy has been associated, the whole row that contains the 'Quick edit' link disappears and the following error pops up in the JavaScript console: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property '_renderItem' of undefined at jQuery.fn.init.$.fn.wpTagsSuggest (tags-suggest.js?ver=5.6-RC1-49690:151) at HTMLDivElement.<anonymous> (inline-edit-post.js?ver=5.6-RC1-49690:342) at Function.each (jquery.js?ver=3.5.1:381) at jQuery.fn.init.each (jquery.js?ver=3.5.1:203) at Object.edit (inline-edit-post.js?ver=5.6-RC1-49690:326) at HTMLButtonElement.<anonymous> (inline-edit-post.js?ver=5.6-RC1-49690:128) at HTMLTableSectionElement.dispatch (jquery.js?ver=3.5.1:5429) at HTMLTableSectionElement.elemData.handle (jquery.js?ver=3.5.1:5233) As a result the Quick Edit UI doesn't show up.

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 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 […]

  • 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 […]

Everything was built with non-technical users from the health and emergency management departments in mind, as they would be in charge of maintaining content that was constantly changing in an ever-evolving public health crisis.

  • AmyJune Hineline: Checking Under the Hood – Auditing Your Website for a Smooth Ride November 17, 2020 10:56 am
    We often talk about websites the way we talk about cars. Are you driving a flashy sports car or a stable hatchback? And is yours a lemon, no matter how pretty the paint job? And if you just got one used, what’s going on under the hood? There’s a way to address these questions about your website, and it’s called a technical audit. The vast majority of site owners live in fear of the day their site breaks down. Performing a site audit can ensure you understand the current state of your site, from the back end code level to the front end performance. It can also help you see potential problems when it comes time to add features (like that sweet audio system). People attending this session will learn the basic building blocks of performing a technical audit, including approaches for auditing different aspects of your site including custom code, theme and front-end functionality, back-end configuration and plugins, and accessibility. The session will also cover tools that can be used to run these tests and tips on what to watch for when managing a website over time.

    Web Components in WordPress Creating a consistent look across an organization can be hard when applications are written in multiple frameworks. This talk will cover how you can utilize web components in your WordPress application. By using web components you can standardize the look across properties in your organization. Pattern Libraries for the Non-Designers Some people call them design systems or pattern libraries. Either way they seem to be the province of designers and something that is just handed to developers. But what if you work more or less alone, having the job of both builder and designer, making decisions about design for clients all on your own, or your designer doesn’t supply enough information to easily test. A pattern library can stream-line your process by showing you and your clients a site-wide system of recurring or common design options: colors, fonts, buttons, testimonials, call outs, etc. Without including distracting content or navigation structure, it makes for easier approval of design elements. WordPress in a Headless World WordPress has been a key part of the development of today’s web, but with the rise of the JAMstack, where does WordPress fit in? This talk will cover about how WordPress compares to the headless options available today and how WordPress is still one of the more powerful solutions available for a great CMS experience.

    This talk recommends how to increase engagement, lower customer acquisition costs, and, ultimately, improve store sales.

  • The Ultimate Newsroom QA: How To Manage Your Editorial Workflow Like A Boss November 12, 2020 3:22 pm
    In 2013 I launched a blog for female creative entrepreneurs that became an overnight success in its own niche in Italy. Six years later, the blog is still going strong: it grew from a handful of contributors to a newsroom of over eighty authors. Last December I was able to hand it off to a new team thanks to the smooth editorial processes we put in place. In this talk, I’ll share the challenges we encountered over the years creating an effective workflow for the growing number of authors and my experience in keeping the quality consistent while maintaining a schedule relevant to the audience’s expectations. I’ll recommend best practices including how to manage user permissions, how to assign editing and curation, deciding who has the final editorial say and delegating the task of actually getting the content online. I will share practical solutions, based on what worked for us, that many different types of teams can use to coordinate their efforts and keep things in check.

  • Matthias Pfefferle: IndieWeb November 9, 2020 2:10 pm
    Fast jeder in der WordPress-Community ist Betreiber eines Blogs (oft schon von Berufswegen), warum finden wir auf den WordCamp Badges dann aber nur den Twitter-Handle? Klar, soziale Netzwerke bieten viele Vorteile im Gegensatz zu klassischen Webseiten. Schreibe ich einen Blogpost, erhalte ich kaum Resonanz, teile ich diesen Blogpost über Twitter, erhalte ich im Durchschnitt 5 Reaktionen. Soziale Netzwerke stellen aber auch ein Risiko dar. Netzwerke werden geschlossen, Regeln können sich ändern und man kann den Zugang zu ihnen verlieren. Warum sollten wir also nicht das Beste aus beiden Welten nutzen? Die Sicherheiten des eigenen Blogs und die Reichweite der sozialen Netze. Das IndieWeb ist eine Art “Web 2.0” Revival. Im Zentrum steht die eigene Webseite und Facebook, Twitter & Co. erweitern es um die soziale Komponente… und wer hätte gedacht, dass sich mit Pingbacks dezentrale Netzwerke bauen lassen?Presentation Slides »
