  • Ticket #47564 (Protect against recursive customizer navigation menu data) created June 19, 2019 7:54 pm
    Recursive data can slip into navigation menu structure but client-script currently has no protection against, resulting in browser freezing when trying to edit navigation menus. Attached patch changes getDepth() to keep track of parent navigation menu item ID to avoid recursion. NOTE: This issue and patch may need an A12N to test because verifying this bug may be difficult and one known site with this problem needs access to MC to test with. If you are an A12N, I've created a WPCOM patch for testing purpose at D29638-code.

  • Ticket #47563 (Update get_template_part() function) created June 19, 2019 12:31 pm
    I think it would be good to add the ability to programmatically override the output of posts in the loop without interfering with the theme files ( for example, archive.php and others ). This will allow you to change the display of posts through plugins. For example. To adapt the theme to work with Woocommerce, you need to edit the theme code. For users, this is sometimes very difficult. My code: <?php function get_template_part( $slug, $name = null ) { /** * Fires before the specified template part file is loaded. * * The dynamic portion of the hook name, `$slug`, refers to the slug name * for the generic template part. * * @since 3.0.0 * * @param string $slug The slug name for the generic template. * @param string|null $name The name of the specialized template. */ do_action( "get_template_part_{$slug}", $slug, $name ); $templates = array(); $name = (string) $name; if ( '' !== $name ) { $templates[] = "{$slug}-{$name}.php"; } $templates[] = "{$slug}.php"; /** * Fires before a template part is loaded. * * @since 5.2.0 * * @param string $slug The slug name for the generic template. * @param string $name The name of the specialized template. * @param string[] $templates Array of template files to search for, in order. */ do_action( 'get_template_part', $slug, $name, $templates ); $templates = add_filter( 'get_template_part', $templates ); locate_template( $templates, true, false ); }

  • 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 […]

    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.

  • Michelle Barker: Building Intelligent Layouts June 19, 2019 2:24 pm
    The CSS Grid Layout Module Level 1 (CSS Grid) has given developers the tools to build complex layouts with relatively little code. It affords us complete control over layout behaviour and positioning of items in two dimensions. At the same time, it has given us many more CSS properties to learn and understand, which can be overwhelming. How do you figure out the best way to build a layout when faced with so much choice? In this talk, Michelle will demystify some of the new terminology, properties, and functions that have arrived with CSS Grid. We’ll bust some common myths and look at how we can harness these new tools to build robust layouts, even with dynamic content. We’ll take an in-depth look at a real-world example of a complex layout, and in the process learn about the superpowers that Grid provides us with.Presentation Slides »

    Selling WordPress is a discussion I’ve been having with Joost de Valk and others on the marketing team since last December. It’s a challenge that I face in my business life each day, when WordPress comes up against other CMS and DXP platforms, especially when they have such great presence and marketing behind them. The truth is, we don’t do enough as WordPress to show off who we are, why we’re more than just a credible competitor, or to help our community communicate the benefits of WordPress to their clients. So why is WordPress a sellable CMS? And how easy/hard is it to endorse WordPress when a client is asking about other platforms? These are some of the questions I want to help to answer without simply shouting “we’re the best, everyone else sucks!” It’s something that I work to achieve on a daily basis (with a mixture of success and failure). The CMS we all love is flexible, expandable, fast, well-supported, great for content editors and ultimately great for business. It’s not just a small blogging platform anymore, it’s a product that suits tiny businesses and enterprise businesses in equal measure, depending on the experience of the designers and developers working with it. So… this talk will help to give a fairly broad range of people new ideas, new arguments and renewed thinking on how to say “WordPress is the platform for you.”Presentation Slides »

    WordPress is a powerful tool to help businesses and community organizations of any size communicate with the people they wish to serve. But having a website is not enough. Instead of using a website solely as a catalog or sales brochure that focuses only on your products and services, website owners should turn the spotlight on to their customers, who are searching online for information that helps them solve business and personal challenges. WordPress, because it’s so accessible to users of all skill levels, is the perfect platform for businesses and groups to regularly share insights and how-to details that their end-users crave. In this session, you will learn about five ways to use WordPress and third-party plugins that make it easier for you to publish more articles, infographics, photos and videos that meet your audience’s information needs.

  • Steve Grunwell: Confidently Testing WordPress June 19, 2019 12:53 pm
    WordPress is a tightly-coupled system, representing over a decade and a half of ideas, decisions, technological shifts, and ideological struggles. There’s a lot of history to be parsed and often the simplest task can have unintended consequences. Meanwhile, automated testing is one of the best ways to ensure software can be released regularly with high confidence and low risk of regressions. Sadly, the leap from “building WordPress plugins” to “building WordPress plugins with tests” is often viewed as a challenging hurdle. Luckily, there are tools to set up a test harness within an existing codebase with ease. This talk introduces the fundamentals of automated testing, especially within the context of WordPress. After developing an understanding why automated testing is so critical, attendees will learn how to begin testing their plugins and themes, using features found both in PHPUnit and the WordPress core testing framework, to build and release quality software.

    Rеаct неслучайно е една от най-популярните javascript библиотеки в момента, с която много лесно се създават красиви и функционални интерфейси. С тази лекция се надявам да мотивирам повече хора, които създават собствени WordPress плъгини, да пробват React. Ще използвам примери от моя личен опит с тази технология и ще споделя какви проблеми съм срещнал. Лекцията е насочена към хора, които не са използвали React преди и ще даде практически съвети от къде да започнем, как да свържем React апликацията с WordPress интерфейса.Presentation Slides »

  • Wholegrain Team: A study in green June 11, 2019 12:26 pm
    With the internet producing 2% of global carbon emissions and growing fast, it’s imperative that all web projects embrace efficiency in order to create a sustainable web for the future. Having developed a carbon calculator to measure the carbon footprint of websites, we found that encouraging clients to embrace efficiency and commit to reducing their website emissions was surprisingly challenging. To help us understand why, we thought it only right that we practice what we preach and redesign our own website with the aim of improving efficiency and reducing our carbon footprint as far as possible. This is the story of what we learned in the process, told from the perspectives of a director, a designer and a developer involved in the project. The outcome was a 75% reduction in carbon emissions, greatly improved page load speed and better user experience. We’ll show what we did in design and development, and how buy in from all stakeholders was crucial to success.Presentation Slides »

  • Jesús Pérez Lorenzo: En un mar de nubes: Integración y entrega continua con WordPress June 10, 2019 5:45 pm
    Desde la rutina continua al bucle infinito, por arte de magia (escrito en prosa devops). ¿Cómo gestionar actualizaciones, desarrollos, pruebas, etc? ¿Cómo decidir lo más adecuado en cada momento en los entornos y tareas, según el contexto y lo que ocurre? Cómo combinar elementos conocidos para crear flujos automatizados y planificados que son capaces de tomar y encadenar acciones que ahorran tiempo, trabajo y costes, con ciertas garantías. Se trata de que el programador y/o el diseñador se enfoque en lo que hace y deje que lo demás se haga por sí mismo, siguiendo estrategias y planes “smart” elaborados, casi por “arte de magia”, con el piloto automático. Revisaremos cómo con las infraestructuras cloud y las utilidades de desarrollo cotidianas podemos crear un servicio WordPress que usa: Modelos automatizados para gestionar los cambios y actualizaciones. Propuestas de prueba y test alternativos. Entornos de producción y desarrollo escalables de alta disponibilidad, como “una orquesta sinfónica”. Flujos de tareas condicionales planificados: “workflow plan”. “S.M.A.R.T” en las plataformas de desarrollo y producción. Sesión con ejemplos y explicación básica de los conceptos y elementos. Es para los que quieren iniciarse y los ya iniciados en la magia del arte prosaico “DevOps” orientado a servicios con WordPress. Es para los que quieren controlar su propio destino, sentirse libres con ciertas garantías y creen en el “asombro” de su propia magia.

  • Taeke Reijenga: The Accessibility Business Case June 10, 2019 5:43 pm
    This talk looks at the business side of web accessibility. Awareness around accessibility and inclusivity is increasing in the WordPress ecosystem but how can you as a designer, developer, or agency (owner) get the message across to your client? As makers of the web we often have to deal with myths like ‘accessible web design is ugly or boring’, ‘web accessibility is expensive and hard to implement’ and ‘my site audience does not include disabled people’. This talk looks at the WHY of Web Accessibility and provides the audience with HOW. HOW to convince your client that there are many benefits with having an accessible website.Presentation Slides »

  • Monica Solheim Slind and Magne Ilsaas: WordPress at scale within the Norwegian Government June 10, 2019 5:39 pm
    The Norwegian Government Security and Service Organisation facilitates and runs over 75 WordPress sites on behalf of all the ministries, and have a long history with WordPress. It started out with themebuilder and a standard theme, but as the platform grew, it became nearly impossible to maintain and support due to all the possibilities and variations. The internal team spent most of their time supporting what was already there, and had little time for innovation and optimisations. Together with Dekode, they have now rebuilt the platform, and made their own modular custom theme, with a flexible but common design system in place. This allows them to spin up new, complex sites within days instead of weeks, freeing up both capacity and resources to further develop the platform, and to better serve their clients. The platform has been designed for scale from the start and all further development contributes to the platform as a whole. This talk will cover both sides of the story. From within G.S.S.O, and how it has changed the way they work with, and deliver WordPress. How a project like this is a partnership with a large dose of mutual trust. How a design and code system can save a lot of time and money. And last but not least, how this way of working is a lot more fun for everyone involved.Presentation Slides »

  • Marco Fernandes and Thor Andre Gretland – Gutenberg Cloud: Your blocks in the cloud (for every CMS) June 10, 2019 5:37 pm
    In 2017 we fell in love with Gutenberg. In 2018 we decided to use it as a foundation for all things CMS: WP, Drupal or standalone apps. This resulted in Gutenberg JS: https://github.com/front/gutenberg-js. We quickly found out that the universal concept of blocks deserves a CMS agnostic library, and what if we could make it cloud based? Here is what we did, what we learned, and how we are using it today!Presentation Slides »
