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 […]

    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.

    Speed matters. People are impatient. If your website or a client’s website doesn’t load quickly – within a just a couple of seconds – many visitors will abandon it completely. A slow site means lost time & revenue. But figuring out how to speed up a slow site can be HARD. Everyone’s got a suggestion and an idea for how to fix your performance issues, but most are just guesses, and not based on real data. STOP GUESSING.

  • Jamie Schmid: Don’t Break Live – Using a Staging Site Can Make Your Life a Lot Easier August 11, 2019 3:09 pm
    "Have you ever updated your WordPress site or plugins, and suddenly found yourself looking at The White Screen of Death? What you thought was going to be a routine update has just brought down your entire website, and the panic sets in fast. If this is your live website, that can quickly translate to loss of revenue, customer trust, and a lot of time and money down the drain. Not to mention the very bad day you are about to have. In this talk Jamie covers tips and strategies for keeping your site updated safely, and how to avoid breaking your live site through use of a staging site that runs alongside your live website. Big content changes, updates, and trying out new designs increases the potential for disaster when these changes are made directly to your live website. Fortunately, there are many options for creating and managing a staging site, ranging from the most simple click-to-push, to more complex solutions integrated into a developers’ workflow. She will show you how to set up your very own staging server in a few different ways, so you can push that Update button without putting your live site in jeopardy."Presentation Slides »
  • Ainslie Koopmans: Do I really need to pay $1000? A Website Owner’s Complete Guide to Copyright August 11, 2019 2:06 pm
    "Copyright infringement is an area of the law that affects all website owners and content creators, yet is widely misunderstood. There are a lot of threats thrown around when an image or text is copied as well as common misconceptions about how to share content. Website owners are often threatened with lawsuits and large fines for using a non-original image or text, even after they seemingly used the content properly. Because of this, I would like to demystify copyright: to examine and clarify copyright infringement. Some of the topics I will cover include: – What is the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) and how it affects content creators and website owners – Distinguishing what is and is not copyrightable – Knowing your rights – What content you can and cannot use – What to do if your content has been stolen – What to do if someone has filed a DMCA notice (or threatened a lawsuit) against you I am excited to share what I have learned working in copyright infringement, so that WordPress users can not only add content to their sites with confidence, but also protect what they have created under copyright law."

  • Angelika Wohofsky: Mit Strategie zum Content-Profi August 9, 2019 1:48 pm
    Die Ausgangssituation Im D-A-CH herrscht keinerlei Einigkeit bei Marketern, Entscheidern, Managern darüber, was mit “Content Strategie” und “Content Marketing” gemeint ist. Selbst das Wort “Content” wird nicht wirklich verstanden und meist als inhaltsleeres Buzzword gegenüber dem Management verwendet. Dieser Konflikt zeigt sich in der Praxis als Aktionismus im Social Web, in der Produktion von Content Halden, und dem Fehlen von Monitoring und Management der Inhalte. Meist fehlen auch Zielgruppen-Personas, unternehmerische und Marketingziele sowie eine Customer Journey Map. Strategie und Content verstehen Da eine einzige Art der Content Strategie niemals modellhaft übertragbar sein kann, weil ihr das Merkmal der Individualität anhaftet, muss eine solche immer auf das Unternehmen speziell hin entwickelt werden. Dies benötigt Zeit und die Einbindung aller von Content betroffenen Personen und Abteilungen des Unternehmens. Content Strategien sind zudem immer langfristig ausgelegt und bauen auf langlebige Strukturen und wiederholbare Prozesse in der Ablauforganisation. Das spart Zeit, Kosten und Nerven in der Content Produktion. Diese Fakten sind jedoch in vielen Marketingabteilungen unbekannt, verwechselt man doch das Content Marketing gerne mit klassischen, auf Angebote und Themen fokussierte Werbekampagnen. Strategie bedeutet nicht Copy-Paste von offline Inhalten ins Web. Mit dem Drei-Schritt zur Strategie Der Vortrag gibt eine Anleitung, welche Unternehmensbereiche für eine Content Strategie durchleuchtet werden, welche Ressourcen zum Einsatz gelangen, und welchen Stellenwert Blogs und Blogger im Content Marketing einnehmen. Am Beispiel des Destinationsmarketings wird zudem gezeigt, wie sehr die Erwartungshaltungen der Zielgruppen auf die Produktion von Content und dessen Distribution Einfluss nehmen. Und wie sehr dies mit dem Herzenscontent des Anbieters in Übereinstimmung gebracht werden muss, will man authentisch rüberkommen. Der Vortrag orientiert sich zudem am Buch “Mit Strategie zum Content Profi”, das die Forschungsergebnisse der Masterarbeit von Angelika Wohofsky mit dem Titel “Socialmedia Strategie im Destinationsmarketing, untersucht anhand der Generation Millennials” für die Anwendung in der Praxis erklärt. Die Teilnehmer erhalten drei Tipps, deren Umsetzung sie sofort in ihrem Unternehmen starten können. Diese Tipps bilden die Grundlage der Strategieentwicklung.Presentation Slides »

    When you launch a website, do you know what works? You don’t; you’re guessing. Your guesses may be based on experience and education, but with good A/B testing you can also make decisions based upon data. For example, do you know that even the way a duck’s face points (left versus right) could increase your conversions by 40%? As a case study, one of our clients, an insurance company, increased leads by making just a small 2px change. In this talk, we will spend some time review the A/B checklist I personally use to guide you on your journey to discover what things to test, testing methodology, and the best tools to use for your clients sites.Presentation Slides »

At its worst, it’s a complex administrative system for reporting statuses on failed or failing projects. It’s tempting to try to fix bad project management situations with software, since that’s what we make for other people-websites, plugins, blocks, or themes that solve various business problems. Before you spend that hard-earned cash on expensive software, though, let’s talk about some less spendy ways to provide value and focus on what we’re really here to do.

  • Micah Wood: WordPress Quality Standards August 6, 2019 7:24 pm
    Clients want to work with quality WordPress developers. They want to know that they can get their project done on time, in budget, and that the solution is going to be effective. Project management aside, writing quality code is the key to delivering on all three of these expectations. If you write poor code, it is going to be harder to read and understand. As a result, it will take longer (and cost the client more money) to add new features. A lack of consistent quality also results in more bugs and a decreased effectiveness of the solution you are creating. WordPress has a set of coding standards that are designed to provide a consistent level of quality for those who are contributing code to WordPress. However, it just got a lot easier to apply those standards to your own projects. Whether you are creating a theme or writing a plugin, you can leverage an “automated code mentor” to help you provide consistent quality to your clients. Come learn how you can leverage the WordPress Coding Standards and automation to help you become a quality developer that clients can trust.
