Just as JavaScript is a near necessity for smoother user experiences and more modern PHP versions are critical for performance, SSL just makes sense as the next hurdle […]

  • Ticket #39188 (Wrapping paragraph tags around 'Read More' link stripped out of custom ...) created December 8, 2016 7:42 pm
    My Genesis child-theme modifies the 'Read More' link in posts and custom post types by stripping out the 3 dots (hellipsis) after the link text, changing the text string, and adding styling attributes. The anchor link is wrapped in a set of p-tags. When I updated WordPress Core in my local development environment from version 4.6.1 to 4.7, the wrapping p-tags were stripped out, and the anchor tag wrapping the 'Read More' link slid up into the preceding paragraph of text. The padding added to the paragraph tags wrapping the link disappeared, and the link styling became in-line to the preceding paragraph text (not what I wanted). I was able to install a fresh copy of my local dev site and then reran the WP Core update, reproducing the problem. I'm not sure why the wrapping paragraph tags are getting stripped out. For now, I can work around the problem by running WP v4.6.1, which is not an optimal, long-term solution. To see an example of how the 'Read More' links are supposed to appear, visit ​http://alb.spiralwebdb.com and view the custom posts on the front page under 'Practice Areas'. A screenshot of the displaced 'Read More' links is attached as a PNG file.

  • Ticket #39180 (Alt Text entry field should be expandable, double line) closed December 8, 2016 3:14 pm
    maybelater: Hi @markciotola, Thanks for the suggestion and welcome to Trac. While I support the desire to encourage people to add useful alt text, I don't think turning this field into a multi-line textarea is the right approach. Unlike caption and description, the alt text ends up being used as an attribute value on the img element itself, which doesn't support things like line breaks within the text. The current input itself supports very long strings of text, so people aren't limited on that front. If anything, we might be able to add some kind of help text to encourage best practices, but changing the field type is probably not the way to go. I'm going to mark this ticket as closed, maybe-later based on the specific request, but feel free to continue discussion about other ways we might help encourage best practices here.

  • Ticket #39177 (Twenty Seventeen: weird behaviour of color slider (custom header)) closed December 8, 2016 3:03 pm
    invalid: It turns out this is the expected behavior🙂 The header text color is independent of the color hue option. The hue slider is working, but the changes can be quite subtle depending on the part of the page you're looking at. However, in the video you can see that the current menu item in the top menu changes color visibly, along with the scroll arrow there. It's a bit more obvious when there isn't a header image, or when you're looking at things like links, post meta, or the footer (the social menu icons change quite a bit). It's actually tweaking the hue of the dark colors as well, but it's very hard to see the difference visually there at first. It looks like the header text color is always matching that option, as it should, but if not please reopen.

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 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.

We’ve mostly had success, but we’ve also had our share of failures and growing pains. In this case study, I’m going to talk about how we started out with WordPress in 2010, migrated our main website a few years later to a multi-site install and how it all evolved to what we have today. Since then, we’ve adopted the “lean and mean” mantra to building sites, while making them easy to update. This case study will showcase the front and back-ends of our higher profile sites to show how we achieved our goals. We’ll also explain how we manage expectations, do our development, choose plugins and tools, and which themes we’ve come to rely on.Presentation Slides »

  • Adam Lamagna: The Formula for Custom Proposal Writing December 7, 2016 9:49 pm
    There’s so much mystery around web proposals. They’re hard to categorize, right? Are they a just a formality? Or should you put in the 40 hours it’s going to take to write a custom proposal? How can you write better ones? These are all good questions, and I’m hoping to provide some answers! Web proposal writing is probably one of the most daunting, yet creative, activities one can do in the tech space. In the technology industry, especially in WordPress, so many agencies and freelancers compete for business. Your proposal is either the gateway to a successful project, or the precursor to a resounding “thanks, but no thanks.” Writing good web proposals is a must. Writing good custom web proposals can reinforce a client’s decision, make you stand out from the competition, and even get a prospective company to pay more money. Proposal writing is a journey of discovery, understanding, mapping the right solution, and giving your potential client something to get jazzed about. I’d like to walk you through the blueprint for writing custom web proposals that’s been effective for me, and show how you can apply these principles to your own process. In addition, I’ll also talk about the proposal flow, text-heavy vs. image-based, the use of nomenclature, and linking benefits to their technical counterparts. If you write proposals in any capacity (as a freelancer or an agency team member), this talk will be beneficial for you!

  • Zrinka Buljubašić : Giving WordPress Dashboard a Welcome Redesign – Layout and Dashicons December 6, 2016 1:41 am
    WordPress is a powerful tool we use on a daily basis. However, the WordPress Dashboard certainly lacks in terms of a powerful visual presence. The Dashboard is almost entirely text information where functionality is the number one priority. This means it requires special care when being shaped so that it can be processed as efficiently and as fast as possible. Along with setting modules and adding consistency both with type, shapes and whitespaces, we completely redesigned DashIcons, too. New DashIcons are all part of the same system visually and conceptually and it can be expanded at anytime. Since Dashboard has certain limitations we thought it would be creative, fun and practical to give it a new lease of life —a facelift to give this tool its much needed visual attributes.

Ensemble, j’espère qu’on pourra créer une meilleure harmonie entre les deux partis en améliorant la communication.Presentation Slides »

  • Linn Øyen Farley: Don’t Fear the Custom Theme – How to Build a Custom WordPress Theme With Only Four Files December 3, 2016 1:45 am
    Commercial WordPress themes have to be ready to handle thousands of use-cases, but your custom theme doesn’t. Reducing a theme to its essential components – index.php, style.css, and functions.php (plus screenshot.png) – gets your design into the browser as quickly as possible and allows for rapid prototyping based on client feedback. It’s also an easy way for beginners to start developing with WordPress, without getting lost in dozens of files.Presentation Slides »

  • Bernard Prince: Gérer facilement un projet WordPress en entreprise December 2, 2016 4:01 pm
    Créer un blogue ou un site de présentation d’entreprise est assez facile avec WordPress. Par contre, gérer une boutique en ligne avec des centaines d’items ou un site ayant de nombreux contenus devant régulièrement être mis à jour devient rapidement complexe. C’est d’autant plus évident en entreprise où peu de personnes connaissent bien le fonctionnement de WordPress. Je vous propose de présenter un cas où avec quelques plug-ins (je ne suis pas programmeur) et la bonne configuration, il devient facile et rapide de gérer efficacement des milliers d’éléments qui doivent être mis à jour régulièrement. Dans ce cas précis, la personne qui tient à jour les données n’a besoin d’aucune connaissance en WordPress. Je vous montrerai en même temps comment optimiser efficacement le référencement Web (SEO) dans un tel contexte.Presentation Slides »

  • Nick Adams: Getting Started with Child Themes December 2, 2016 3:54 pm
    In this presentation, presented in English (avec des sous-titres français au bas de l’écran) I will explain what child themes are and why they should be used. I will then show how to create a child theme using both a plugin as well as manually creating a new directory and putting in a custom style.css and functions.php file. I will then show how changes to a child theme’s CSS overrides the parent theme’s styles when they apply to the same target element, whereas items added to functions.php run in addition to everything in the parent theme’s functions.php. I will also show how to use Inspect Element in a browser to find what style is currently assigned to an element. Throughout the slides, a single child theme of Twenty Sixteen will be created, resulting in a completely custom child theme that is well documented with explanations written in comments about what the code is doing and what line in the parent theme’s style.css it is overriding for reference.
