  • Ticket #47547 (switch_to_locale( 'en_US' ) is unreliable) created June 15, 2019 6:10 pm
    Given a site that uses en_US as its language, a user with their user language set to something else, and that user logged into the admin dashboard, calling switch_to_locale( 'en_US' ) appears to be unreliable. ❌ The return value of determine_locale() is the user's language, not en_US. ✅ Localised text without a textdomain (ie. text from core) is correctly displayed in en_US. ❌ Localised text with a textdomain (ie. text from plugins or themes) is incorrectly displayed in the user's language. This may be related to #39210. Given a site that itself uses a language other than en_US, calling switch_to_locale( 'en_US' ) does appear to work although I haven't tested it extensively.

  • Ticket #47546 (The language used for the `lang` attribute isn't validated before ...) created June 15, 2019 1:48 pm
    In the admin area, the lang attribute can be populated directly from the WPLANG option or the user's locale meta field. In these cases, no check is performed to ensure that the corresponding language files exist before using the value for the lang attribute. This can come about if the language files that are used by a user or the site are deleted, or the value is otherwise modified to include an incorrect value. For example, running wp user meta update admin locale it_IT will result in lang="it_IT" being added to the <html> element, even if the corresponding language files don't exist. This can result in the browser being confused about the language of the page, and can also result in assistive technology handling or pronouncing text incorrectly. It would be preferable if the existence of the corresponding language files was checked before the lang attribute was output, falling back to en_US as necessary. I'm not sure if it's best to make this change in the get_language_attributes() function, or lower in the determine_locale() or get_bloginfo() functions.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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 »

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.

  • 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 »

  • Felix Arntz: Web Policies and Reporting – Defining Contracts Between Your Site and the Browser June 10, 2019 5:20 pm
    A diverse environment like your WordPress site is inherently difficult to control. If you are a developer, you can make sure your own code meets quality standards and honors best practices, but it is usually not possible to do the same for plugins created by others. It becomes even more of a problem if you are required to rely on third-party code entirely, for example when you maintain a WordPress site, but don’t write extensions for it yourself. Recently, new browser technologies have been introduced to help tackle such issues. Content Security Policies and Feature Policies allow you to define contracts between your site and the browser, efficiently enforcing your site to stick to certain best practices you define. You don’t want your site to ever serve images that are too large? You don’t want your site to ever give the user that pop-up for browser notifications? These new policies put you in control over how your site interacts with the user, relying on the browser as a middle man. If there is a violation of the policies you have defined, the browser can inform you via a new Reporting API standard, allowing you to spot the problem and act upon it. This session will provide an introduction to these new technologies, and then dive into how you can use them in WordPress.Presentation Slides »

  • Gorka Urrutia: Cómo arruinar tu vida montando un negocio de desarrollo web June 10, 2019 4:36 pm
    ¿Quieres dedicarte al desarrollo web como autónomo o con tu empresa y no sabes cómo empezar? ¿Cómo conseguir clientes? ¿Cuánto cobrar? ¿Te da miedo? ¿Cómo evitar que tus clientes tomen el control?. Llevo en el mundo del desarrollo web desde hace unos cuantos años (no diré cuántos) y por el camino he sufrido, he aprendido, he reído, he llorado, he acertado, me he equivocado, me han dado de tortas y las he repartido (no tantas como me hubiera gustado). Voy a compartir mi experiencia y dar unos sabios (espero) consejos para evitar que fracases: – ¿Puede todo el mundo ser autónomo o montarse por su cuenta? – Autónomo sí, solo no ¿Debo buscar socios? ¿Con quién debo asociarme? – ¿Cómo buscar clientes? – ¿Cómo establecer mis precios? – ¿Cómo evito que los clientes se me suban a las barbas? – La constancia es la clave. – ¿Qué conocimientos técnicos debo tener? — La idea de esta charla es la siguiente: – Contaré mi trayectoria personal de manera muy breve, amena y divertida incidiendo en mis aciertos y errores. – Daré consejos sobre clientes, promoción, precios, socios, etc. – Terminaré diciendo que no todo el mundo puede/debe montarse por su cuenta. Quiero que la gente salga de la charla con una idea más clara de cómo montar un negocio de desarrollo o cómo mejorarlo si ya lo tienes, cómo evitar fracasar, cuáles son los errores más comunes y cómo lograr el éxito.

  • Aaron D. Campbell: Succeeding as an Introvert June 10, 2019 4:33 pm
    It can be challenging to be an introvert in a world built for extroverts. A lot of introverts have been told at some point in their career to “be more extroverted”, as though introversion is bad — but it’s not bad, and being an extrovert is certainly not required for success. Ever wondered how the dopamine pathways in your brain affect how and when you’re able to focus? Probably not, but science can tell us a lot about how our brains work and we can learn to leverage that information to help us succeed. Aaron will take both a scientific and experiential look at introversion and extroversion, how they differ, how to tell where on the scale you are, and what advantages each has in today’s workplace. He’ll walk through his own journey of learning to leverage the strengths of his introversion and share what he does to help him navigate the parts of life and his career that are harder for him as an introvert.Presentation Slides »

  • Joe Simpson: 90 Days – Finding Your Place in the WordPress Community June 10, 2019 4:29 pm
    A great opening to a WordCamp, this is a tale of overcoming, revisiting dormant passions, inspiration, and motivating others through giving back to Community. After years of general fatigue, a myriad of tests without an answer, a catheter was inserted through my hip eventually winding its way to my heart, discovering two blocked arteries. After successfully re-opening them, I set out on difficult cardio-rehabilitation to regain heart fitness. During the next three months (including a leave of absence from work), Joe set out to restore my physical, spiritual and emotional well being. This speech details a 3-month journey of rediscovery the things that nourish and nurture each of these three areas — a thirst for learning, unearthing my dormant creativity and all things WordPress. He set out to become more mindful of the things that bring me positive energy including truly engaging in the Community — 4 WordCamps, 16+ WordPress Meetups, and Events, designed a Wapuu, and a website build/brand to give back. From Castaic north to Palmdale (northernmost Los Angeles County), east to Riverside and all ports of call in-between (Pasadena, Whittier, Hollywood, Downtown Los Angeles) learn what makes good clubs while finding a network of common minds and colorful characters and gain inspiration to start the WordPress Santa Clarita Valley Meetup, over 8,000 Miles later. In this presentation, you’ll learn: What are the benefits of attending WordCamp? Why join a WordPress Slack Channel? Why volunteer to help at a WordCamp (experience being on both sides of the table)? What is a WordPress Meetup? What are the ‘five rules’ of hosting a WP Meetup? How to get started? From visiting your local WordPress Meetup to even starting your own. How to harness the energy from attending a WordCamp in your WP Meetups? What are the benefits of attending a WordPress Meetup? What is WordPress.tv? What are my favorite WordPress podcasts? Who are the faces of WordPress Community? Learning resources – Codex, videos and more. Why would I do something so crazy (deal with LA traffic)? My takeaways or goals (get better at WordPress, start a local Meetup, etc)Presentation Slides »

  • Scott DeLuzio: Automated Testing of Site Functionality June 10, 2019 4:17 pm
    How often do we update something on our website, whether it’s a plugin, theme, or WordPress itself, and then move on without testing if our site still works? It probably happens more often than we’d like to admit. Of course we want our site to always work as expected, but there is just so much to test, we don’t have the time to do it all. Especially with what seems like daily updates. What if YOU didn’t have to test every little thing on your site to see if it’s working? This talk will discuss ways to automate testing of critical site functionality like contact forms, e-commerce checkout, and landing pages to ensure your site’s essential features are working as expected after every update.Presentation Slides »

  • Matt Perry: WordPress security – a risk assessment approach June 10, 2019 4:15 pm
    For a variety of reasons, we humans tend to be poor assessors of both the probability that something bad will happen, and the damage that is likely to result should such a thing occur. Academics have studied this phenomenon since about the 1960s under the rubric of risk assessment. What does this way of thinking have to teach us about WordPress security? Can we construct a risk matrix to help us choose which aspects of WordPress security are most in need of our limited time and attention? In this session, I’ll draw on both on my own experience providing technical consulting in the areas of security and scaling to some of the world’s largest and most security-sensitive WordPress sites, and on the wisdom of community members who maintain smaller sites for businesses and individuals. In addition to providing a brief overview of the total security landscape as it applies to WordPress, we will attempt to use some of the tools of risk assessment to help us focus our attention in the right areas, including any we tend to naturally overlook. This session, though touching on some technical topics, is suitable for anyone who administers, uses or develops WordPress sites.Presentation Slides »

  • Francesca Marano: How to Create Your First Business Plan June 10, 2019 4:12 pm
    When I started my business in 2011, I didn’t think I needed a business plan. I only needed clients, tons of clients. Even though my title was Web Designer, I took every job that came my way. I made WordPress websites, of course, but also did graphic design, print design, social media management, training — basically anything! In less than eight months, I had to go back to work as an employee because I managed to spend way more money than I earned. I kept freelancing on the side with no direction whatsoever and finally, I realised that I needed a plan. It doesn’t matter what your financial goal is for the year or your mission for your small business. Having measurable goals and a clear strategy will allow you to do what you love and make a living out of it. In this talk I will go over the basic sections of a business plan and show you some examples of how you can make one that represents you and your business.Presentation Slides »
