  • 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.

  • 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 […]

  • Zach Lebar: How To Speak “Conversational Developer” October 17, 2017 8:18 am
    Many of us here aren’t developers. We might have a fuzzy notion of what they do, or why they’re important. When we run into an issue while using WordPress, we might know that it’s a developer who can fix the problem, but do we know how to explain the issue to them? Do we understand the answer they’re giving? There’s a lot of technical jargon that many developers assume as common knowledge to anyone using WordPress. How is your backend configured? What theme are you running, and is it based on a framework? Is it a Genesis-based theme? Are you working with HTML5, CSS3, or SASS? What version of PHP is your server running? Are you on a shared host, a dedicated VPS, or a managed solution? Are you seeing a server error or a PHP error? The avalanche of questions and terminology can be completely overwhelming. In this talk, I’ll break down some basic terminology, explain the foundational concepts of how a WordPress site works, and try to help you bridge the language gap between you and your developer.

  • Hristo Pandjarov: WordPress Is No Good For Really Big Projects? Yeah, Right! October 16, 2017 4:56 am
    I have often come across this notion that WordPress isn’t ready for big projects by default and that a lot of customization is needed for it to work at a truly large scale. However, my personal experience with setting up and helping maintain several really big projects has made me heartfully disagree with this statement. In this talk I will show you how a truly scalable and redundant system can be created without the need to change anything in WordPress. Here are few of the topics I will cover: — Multiple Web Nodes How to properly use load balancers and how to set WordPress on multiple web nodes without making any application modifications. — Multiple Database Nodes How to have a redundant master-slave DB replication without WordPress even knowing about it. — Shared Storage How to organize your files on multiple nodes, replicate them and keep them in sync in the most efficient way. — Handling Sessions How to handle sessions properly and how to overcome other potential issues with huge sites hosted on high-availability, multi-node WordPress setups.

  • Manuela van Prooijen: How To Grow Your WordPress Business By Saying ”No!” October 14, 2017 1:16 pm
    Many starting WordPress business owners underestimate how long it takes to build a strong foundation for their business. Often, out of desperation, they will take on any job, at any price, no questions asked. Ending up financially and emotionally drained. This is probably a reason why so many businesses close down in their first two years. Having experienced this myself the hard way, I discovered the power of the tiny word “No!”, the most powerful key we hold to end this rat race. Saying “No!” is counterintuitive. And it is certainly is not an easy thing to do. But practicing to say “No!” can keep you from disliking your business and the people you do business with. The moment you stop saying ‘Yes” to every opportunity that arises, your WordPress business can grow bigger than you could have imagined. The “No!” strategy is all about doing the work you are passionate about and are good at, and with the right clients. It really boils down to doing less of the work you dislike, isn’t profitable or does not fit your beliefs. Learn to say “No!” I feel the time is right to share some insights about why and how I learned to say no to certain work and clients. I will share my six-step process that helped me grow my WordPress business over the years … And remember: “If it’s not a hell yeah, it’s a no.”

  • Thorsten Frommen: Using PSR-7 Middleware In Your RESTful WordPress Projects October 14, 2017 11:26 am
    In the PHP world in general, there is a standard (recommendation) when it comes to HTTP messages: PSR-7. Despite things like Calypso, Gutenberg and the growing JavaScript codebase in general, WordPress is written in PHP. Thus, wouldn’t it be nice to do what the rest of the PHP world is doing? Isn’t there some way to leverage all the existing PSR-7 middleware and incorporate them into the WordPress REST API? Well, there is. In this talk, Thorsten will give an overview of the PSR-7 HTTP message interfaces. After that, he will compare these with the structures of WordPress Core, and analyze whether or not they match with the PSR-7 interfaces. Finally, Thorsten will provide a closer look into an example implementation of PSR-7-compliant WordPress REST requests and responses, respectively, and explain their inner workings.
  • Theo van der Zee: Conversie Optimalisatie voor Websites met Weinig Verkeer October 14, 2017 10:45 am
    Je kunt nu twee kanten op (welke met real-life voorbeelden en bijpassende tools in de presentatie zullen worden uitgewerkt): 1) Niet geadviseerd: zorgen dat je toch kunt gaan A/B testen. Denk hierbij bijvoorbeeld aan het inzetten van SEA of SEO om je aantal conversies per maand te verhogen. Ook kun je denken aan een lagere significantie grens, varianten achter elkaar (in plaats van naast elkaar) neerzetten, grote veranderingen per keer proberen, een focus op micro conversies, etc. 2) Wel geadviseerd: jezelf eerst richten op methodes die ook bij minder verkeer werken. Dit zijn bijvoorbeeld user testing, expert reviews en surveys. Ook je web analytics data of gegevens voortkomende uit mouse tracking of formulier analyse kunnen hier erg inzichtelijk zijn. Hoewel het verzamelen van deze bevindingen niet per se voldoet aan de wetenschappelijke normen, brengen ze vaak wel kritieke pijnpunten aan het licht. Zeker ook door meerdere van deze onderzoekstechnieken te combineren, kun je een redelijk stabiele bron van verbeteringen samenstellen. Overigens is het zo dat ook websites met veel verkeer sowieso vanuit gedegen vooronderzoek hun variaties zou moeten bepalen, waardoor deze methodes bruikbaar blijven wanneer het aantal conversies is gegroeid.
  • Marieke van de Rakt: Schrijven voor een ‘mobiel’ publiek October 14, 2017 10:31 am
    Het schrijven van blogposts is een hele kunst. Lezen van een scherm is voor veel mensen een uitdaging. Steeds vaker lezen mensen blogposts vanaf hun mobiele telefoon. Voor veel blogs is het aantal bezoekers vanaf mobiele aparaten al groter dan het aantal bezoekers vanaf een desk of laptop. Hoe ga je daarmee om? Wat betekent dat voor de teksten die je schrijft? Moeten die aan andere eisen voldoen? En wat betekent het voor je SEO? In deze presentatie geef ik veel tips die je zullen helpen om een goede tekst voor een ‘mobiel’ publiek te schrijven.

  • Monique Dubbelman: Dear WordPress Community: we’ve turned WP Admin into a monster! October 14, 2017 9:40 am
    A few events recently occurred: a WordPress developer posted a screenshot on Twitter of the WP Admin of a website he’d just taken over. It was also the day I handed over a site to one of my clients. While I was explaining them where to find what in WP Admin, it struck me: there seemed to be no logic in a lot of the menu-items at all! While we’ve all been busy designing websites with a focus on the front end, we seemed to have lost track of usability when developing extra functionality for the back end of WordPress, WP Admin. New menu items created by plugins, seem to be all over the place, not to mention the notifications that come with them. Even though most of us are working with WordPress on a daily basis, taking over a website developed by another company isn’t always easy. So imagine what it is like for someone with less experience. This talk is a first analyses on the WP admin of a WordPress website, that has the most popular plugins installed. It also presents findings of research done amongst plugin developers, on how they decide how and where the menu of a plugin should appear. Finally, I’m encouraging WP Admin users to participate in an online user test, that will help us to create a foundation for a more user friendly WP Admin.

  • Aaron Ware: Keynote – The Big Fail: Breaking Down the 4th Wall of Agency Life October 13, 2017 11:35 am
    In this interactive experience we’ll be exploring honesty in agency life. Too often in the agency world and society, we have an unwillingness to put ourselves in a state of vulnerability to our clients and our peers.

Nothing in life is perfect and even with extreme planning there are still curveballs thrown our way. Aaron will be sharing his insights, missteps and lessons learned from nearly 20 years of agency experience, including his 10+ years running Linchpin: a WordPress focused digital agency. He will be encouraging interaction with attendees along the way, providing audience members with the ability to anonymously participate in sharing #fails and #wins on Twitter and/or the WordPress RI Website.

  • Brian Rotsztein: How WordPress Will Change Your Life October 13, 2017 6:14 am
    WordPress is software like no other. Businesses harness its versatility. Creative skills are mastered with it. It unifies individuals from diverse backgrounds. Yet to so many, it remains “just” software. As a blogger, web designer, marketer, educator, and entrepreneur since long before its existence, I’ve watched it grow into a worldwide phenomenon. My own path to success is intertwined with a decade of WordPress use. Clearly, there’s more to this software than just a free install. Discover how WordPress will completely change your personal and business life for the better, if you let it! This is an introduction to my concept of The WordPress Lifestyle (#wplife) which is all about community. It goes far beyond merely using WordPress to support one’s livelihood. It includes education, inspiration, art, experiences, relationships, and so much more.

  • Tiana Cameron: What I Learned From Making A WordPress Powered Extranet For My Freelance Biz October 12, 2017 8:10 am
    One Sunday morning while reconciling my books during a slow cash flow month, I was shocked to realize that I was paying nearly $300 a month in subscriptions to run my freelancing gig! Things like invoicing, project management, contracts and growing - it was seriously getting out of control. Sure $7-$35 here and there was harmless, maybe even unnoticed most times. But after seeing all the subscriptions categorized (especially during a slow month) and knowing there’s over 40,000 plugins available in WordPress, I couldn’t help but wonder “What can WordPress replace?” And with that, I started a journey into creating (even though I didn’t realize at the time) an extranet that my clients and I both could use, all with the ultimate goal of reducing my monthly operating costs. This topic is about what I learned while creating my extranet and what monthly subscription services WordPress could totally replace, what it might be able to replace (depending on circumstances), what it should not replace and the unexpected benefits and head bumps I uncovered!Presentation Slides »
