  • Ticket #43344 ($wp_locale->start_of_week is always NULL) created February 17, 2018 5:05 pm
    It seems that the start_of_week property of class WP_Locale (introduced in version 4.4) always resolves to NULL, because it is never initialized (determined by a quick global search for ->start_of_week). It also seems like the rest of the codebase only relies on get_option('start_of_week'), including tests, thus nothing is really affected (seemingly) by the bug. Perhaps someone just forgot to add $this->start_of_week = get_option('start_of_week'); in init()?

  • Ticket #29606 (Reorder images via drag and drop is not working in WP 4) closed February 17, 2018 2:40 am
  • Ticket #43341 (Proposal: new cache helper functions) created February 17, 2018 1:48 am
    ​I just tagged version 1.0.0 of WP Cache Remember, which is a small WordPress library that adds six new functions: wp_cache_remember() wp_cache_forget() remember_transient() forget_transient() remember_site_transient() forget_site_transient() These functions all follow the same pattern, with two each for the WP object cache, transients, and site transients, respectively. The goal is to reduce this common pattern: function get_some_value() { $cache_key = 'some-cache-key'; $cached = wp_cache_get( $cache_key ); if ( $cached ) { return $cached; } $value = new WP_Query( /* ... */ ); wp_cache_set( $cache_key, $value ); return $value; } something easier to manage: function get_some_value() { return wp_cache_remember( 'some-cache-key', function () { return new WP_Query( /* ... */ ); } ); } Of course, if the function is being used in WordPress core or anywhere else that needs to support PHP 5.2, any callable — not just closures — could be passed. The function is based on ​Laravel's Cache::remember() method and is extremely useful for themes or plugins that are regularly making use of the object cache, transients, and/or site transients. The underlying code uses existing cache API functions, and thus won't require any modification in existing object cache adapters. The complementary function, wp_cache_forget() will retrieve and empty the cache value, saving developers a step if they only want a cached value to be returned once (for instance, a "flash" message). ​The GitHub README file has a full description of each function and its arguments, along with 100% test coverage. If there's any interest in including some or all of these helpers in core, I'd be more than happy to put together a PR.
  • Ticket #43340 (Enable Copy and Paste without Unecessary Dialog Messages) created February 16, 2018 11:51 pm
    Copying and pasting should not require any permission messages let alone two dialog boxes: Do you want to allow this web page to access your clipboard? Please Use Ctrl+v/Cmd+v shortcuts to post content. Mouse/Insertion Point goes to bottom of (long) post instead of staying at the same place! The second dialog message is not true since I can do mouse right-click | option Paste as well.
  • Ticket #43339 (Global user_options calls should use user_meta instead) created February 16, 2018 9:48 pm
    There are 2 places where WordPress uses the user_option functions with the global flag set to true which internally invokes the user_meta functions. In these cases, there is no benefit to using user_option and only a detriment by way of additional function calls. The user-meta keys in question are: default_password_nag community-events-location

  • 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.

    My WordPress journey started with working on small projects as a freelancer. Over nine years, we have grown to reach the other end of the spectrum, regularly handling large enterprise WordPress projects. At this scale, the rules for “selling” WordPress change.

  • Lucijan Blagonic: Design Adventures in Open Source February 9, 2018 6:59 am
    As a part of the design team for the biggest WordPress conference in the world — WordCamp Europe, I worked on branding, website theme and various other tasks. As a designer, it was challenging working under “constraints” of open–source, but I pulled through and learned a lot in the process, and I’d like to share that experience with you. This talk is not about which tools to use or how to pick the project to contribute to. It’s about becoming a better designer by honing your communication skills and empathy towards your colleagues and people who will end up using your designs. By volunteering and contributing to open–source projects you’ll get the opportunity to work on challenging or a particular type of projects you might not otherwise have. The design is less about making beautiful pictures you can sign your name onto; It’s more about creating a positive impact and improving the experience of the people using it.
