A cursory search of the WordPress.org plugin directory shows that fewer than two dozen plugins are currently using the API scaffolding included in WordPress 4.4. For reference, here are the 20 plugins identified by Mika Epstein during the meeting, along with active installation numbers for each:</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/acf-to-rest-api/" target="_blank">ACF to REST API</a> &#8211; 200+</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/acf-to-wp-api/" target="_blank">ACF to WP-API</a> &#8211; 1,000+</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/acf-to-wp-rest-api/" target="_blank">ACF to WP REST API</a> &#8211; 300+</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-contact-forms/" target="_blank">Custom Contact Forms</a> &#8211; 70,000+</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/dashboard-directory-size/" target="_blank">Dashboard Directory Size</a> &#8211; 100+</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/invitations-for-slack/" target="_blank">Invitations for Slack</a> &#8211; less than 10</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/jwt-authentication-for-wp-rest-api/" target="_blank">JWT Authentication for WP REST API</a> &#8211; 100+</li> <li>oEmbed API &#8211; no longer available as of 2/5/2016</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/prayers/" target="_blank">Prayers</a> &#8211; less than 10</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/rest-api/" target="_blank">WP REST API</a> &#8211; 9,000+</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/rest-json/" target="_blank">REST JSON</a> &#8211; less than 10</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/rest-routes/" target="_blank">REST Routes</a> &#8211; less than 10</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/searchwp-api/" target="_blank">SearchWP API</a> &#8211; 20+</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/store-locator-le/" target="_blank">Maps by Storelocator Plus</a> &#8211; 10,000+</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/tabulate/" target="_blank">Tabulate</a> &#8211; 100+</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-api-categoriestags/" target="_blank">WP API Categories + Tags</a> &#8211; 10+</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-api-menus/" target="_blank">WP API Menus</a> &#8211; 700+</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-rest-api-log/" target="_blank">WP REST API Log</a> &#8211; 100+</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-rest-api-sidebars/" target="_blank">WP REST API Sidebars</a> &#8211; less than 10</li> <li><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/wprestapiextensions/" target="_blank">WPRestApiExtensions</a> &#8211; less than 10</li> </ul> <p>With a few notable exceptions, most of these plugins are hovering around a range of 10 &#8211; 100 active installs. These low numbers may indicate that plugin authors have not yet readily embraced building with the scaffolding that was merged into core in 4.4. However, some developers who have embraced building with the API have opted not to offer their plugins and themes for large scale distribution on WordPress.org.</p> <p>&#8220;I think the plugin directory is the wrong place to look for adoption,&#8221; WordPress developer <a href="https://twitter.com/natewr" target="_blank">Nate Wright</a> said at the most recent meeting. &#8220;As a plugin author myself, I have to bend over backwards to ensure compatibility with tens of thousands of weird plugins and themes. Javascript itself is highly unstable in the ecosystem because of all the terrible code out there. I&#8217;ve used the API in client projects and am currently integrating it with some customizer tools I&#8217;m building. My publicly available plugins will be the last thing I&#8217;ll introduce to the API.&#8221;</p> <p>Taylor Lovett, author of <a href="http://wptavern.com/custom-contact-forms-plugin-passes-1-million-downloads-on-wordpress-org" target="_blank">Custom Contact Forms</a>, believes that it&#8217;s important to get REST API-powered plugins into the hands of users, despite the support challenges of public distribution.</p> <p>&#8220;It pushes plugin and theme developers to start working around API JavaScript conflicts now,&#8221; Lovett said. &#8220;There are many plugins that conflict with the API for a variety of reasons, one of the big ones being modifying Backbone.sync. Having plugins use it now is painful but will push people to start reporting those JS conflicts.&#8221;</p> <p>Custom Contact Forms is currently the most widely-used plugin running the WP REST API with more than 70,000 installations, but the journey to using the current version has been fraught with challenges.</p> <p>&#8220;There have been a number of backwards compatibility breaks with the JSON REST API project,&#8221; Lovett said. &#8220;If I had known going into it what would happen, I probably would have not used the API.</p> <p>&#8220;I am still not completely comfortable with using the API because of the perceived instability of the project,&#8221; he said.&#8221;</p> <p>Nevertheless, public distribution has brought Lovett considerable feedback from users which has been invaluable for his contributions to the REST API project.</p> <p>&#8220;I’ve had a number of patches to the API that were discovered through Custom Contact Forms,&#8221; he said. &#8220;I’ve discovered some real edge cases while maintaining the API across more than 70K installations.&#8221;</p> <p>Distributing his plugin on WordPress.org while the API went through significant changes was more challenging than Lovett anticipated, but through it the API has gained more exposure.</p> <p>&#8220;The faster the API is exposed to people and people get comfortable using it, the sooner we will see some major strides in applications being built around WordPress,&#8221; he said.</p> <div id="epoch-width-sniffer"></div> text/html 2016-02-05T22:42:20+01:00 http://abetterplanetwp.com A Better Planet Chicken and Eggs https://ma.tt/2016/02/chicken-and-eggs/ <p><img class="alignright wp-image-46028" src="http://i2.wp.com/ma.tt/files/2016/02/mometablues.jpeg?resize=245%2C376" alt="mometablues.jpeg" srcset="http://i2.wp.com/ma.tt/files/2016/02/mometablues.jpeg?resize=137%2C210 137w, http://i2.wp.com/ma.tt/files/2016/02/mometablues.jpeg?resize=482%2C740 482w, http://i2.wp.com/ma.tt/files/2016/02/mometablues.jpeg?resize=667%2C1024 667w, http://i2.wp.com/ma.tt/files/2016/02/mometablues.jpeg?resize=300%2C460 300w, http://i2.wp.com/ma.tt/files/2016/02/mometablues.jpeg?w=704 704w" sizes="(max-width: 245px) 100vw, 245px" data-recalc-dims="1" />I&#8217;ve been reading <a href="http://www.amazon.com/dp/1455501352/">Questlove&#8217;s <em>Mo&#8217; Meta Blues</em></a>, and it’s an incredible education. The book is helping me appreciate an era of music that inspired the era that inspires me &#8212; the music that drove the Roots, J Dilla, Fugees, D’Angelo, Common, Erykah Badu, Kendrick Lamar, and so many more to create what they have.</p> <p>Chronologically, I’m in a chapter covering mid-90s hip-hop, which is full of conflict. There’s a tension alluded to in the book of the musicians that made it and those that didn’t: does increased radio play make songs popular? <a href="https://aeon.co/essays/why-repetition-can-turn-almost-anything-into-music">There&#8217;s some science that suggests yes</a>. Or is there something intrinsic to the record that puts it in that virtous loop of requests and airplay, the equivalent of usage and virality in a web product?</p> <p>There&#8217;s a great ancedote in the book that I think is useful when thinking about products. All of the links are my addition, not in the original text.</p> <blockquote><p>There was one moment during the recording of <a href="https://open.spotify.com/album/1ecv8bJajqX9E0EOX2g3eI"><em>Voodoo</em></a> that really brought this home. We were recording <a href="https://open.spotify.com/artist/6GEykX11lQqp92UVOQQCC7">DJ Premier&#8217;s</a> scratches for &#8220;<a href="https://open.spotify.com/track/3dOzhSPnBrRIcPyDUAqQYd">Devil&#8217;s Pie</a>,&#8221; and <a href="https://open.spotify.com/artist/3ZotbHeyVQKxQCPDJuQ4SU">Q-Tip</a> had just let the room to go work on something else, so there were four of us left there: Premier, <a href="https://open.spotify.com/artist/0IVcLMMbm05VIjnzPkGCyp">Dilla</a>, <a href="https://open.spotify.com/artist/336vr2M3Va0FjyvB55lJEd">D&#8217;Angelo</a>, and myself. During the break, Premier asked if anyone had any new shit to play for the group, and D&#8217;Angelo went for a cassette and played a bit of a new song, and the whole room just erupted in hooting. Then Dilla put on some new <a href="https://open.spotify.com/artist/1020a42xVklY6c56imNcaa">Slum Village</a> shit and it was the same thing: an explosion of excitement. Then Premier, who had started the whole thing, played an <a href="https://open.spotify.com/artist/1BH45DVSTeGBvcYXNCd67g">M.O.P.</a> song and some new <a href="https://open.spotify.com/artist/5cMgGlA1xGyeAB2ctYlRdZ">Gang Starr</a> material that he was working on for <a href="https://open.spotify.com/album/6U2LlflINhafc0e9vhs0lp"><em>The Ownerz</em></a>.</p> <p>I was last at bat. All I had on me was a work tape for what would eventually become &#8220;<a href="https://open.spotify.com/track/7frJEBqz0olVg8sQpXD5BF">Double Trouble</a>&#8221; on <a href="https://open.spotify.com/album/0qbl8aNaCUOvX8HGsZYLfh"><em>Things Fall Apart</em></a>. It didn&#8217;t have finished vocals yet, didn&#8217;t have <a href="https://open.spotify.com/artist/0Mz5XE0kb1GBnbLQm2VbcO">Mos Def&#8217;s</a> verse. It was just a skeleton. I played it, and I will never forget the feeling that came over the room, including me. It wasn&#8217;t that they didn&#8217;t hoot and holler like they had for the other songs. They did. But they didn&#8217;t mean it. I know the move people resort to when they&#8217;re not quite into a song: they keep a straight stare on their face and bob their head a bit, not saying anything, not making eye contact. That&#8217;s the sign of death. That&#8217;s what they all did to me, and I felt humiliated. I was like Glenn Close in <em>Fatal Attraction</em>: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzbVn9Xx3YM">I will not be ignored</a>! I went back into the studio that same night and gave that song a radical, extended facelift. I refused to sleep until I had that thing up and running.</p></blockquote> <p>I love the idea of Questlove realizing the song was missing something, and going back to the booth to keep working on it until it resonated with his target audience. A song that doesn’t stand up on its own wouldn’t be any better when bundled as part of an album. (Or Samsung would have the most popular apps on Android.) Fans hear the care and quality of each track, and they become super-fans. The bands that break out weren’t bludgeoned into fan’s ears by radio play, they were pulled by these passionate few into a wider audience.</p> <p>I love the mixtape culture that so many of today&#8217;s successful artists have come up through, and it is amplified online. <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drake_discography#Mixtapes">Drake had three ever-improving mixtapes before his first album</a>. It harkens to a line from PG&#8217;s startup canon (in 2009!): <a href="http://paulgraham.com/13sentences.html">Better to make a few users love you than a lot ambivalent</a>.</p> <p>There&#8217;s this tension in everything we produce. Where&#8217;s the line to tread between <a href="https://ma.tt/2010/11/one-point-oh/">1.0 is the loneliest</a> and a <a href="http://theleanstartup.com/principles">minimum viable product</a>?

The team is investigating handling these issues in a plugin instead of delaying the merge with the core. The biggest issues with these four items are password-protected posts, autosaves, and meta handling.</p> <p>At the end of September, <a href="https://twitter.com/rmccue" target="_blank">Ryan McCue</a> announced the <a href="https://make.wordpress.org/core/2015/09/21/wp-rest-api-merge-proposal/" target="_blank">merge proposal</a> for the API, saying the infrastructure will be merged with 4.4, which it has been, and the endpoints will be taken care of for 4.5. However, some core contributors, including <a href="https://twitter.com/photomatt" target="_blank">Matt Mullenweg</a>, raised concerns about the REST API&#8217;s readiness during yesterday&#8217;s meeting.</p> <blockquote><p>&#8220;It’s good to have a complete API design before crystalizing parts of it by shipping in core, which ties our hands a lot, even with versioning,&#8221; Mullenweg said in the meeting.</p></blockquote> <p>Other contributors pointed out that the API is made to be enhanced and changed over time, much like WordPress itself, and that waiting for something that is 100 percent complete is limiting and won&#8217;t work.</p> <blockquote><p>&#8220;There is no such thing as a complete API though, as WP will have new features in the future, we&#8217;ll always be adding stuff,&#8221; said McCue.</p></blockquote> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/DrewAPicture" target="_blank">Drew Jaynes</a>, core developer, added that there can&#8217;t be a complete implementation, so the team should decide on what feels like a &#8220;solid base&#8221; before making further decisions. But Mullenweg stuck to his guns, saying he is uncomfortable adding &#8220;a partial API to the core,&#8221; noting that adoption is taking longer than he expected.</p> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/aaronjorbin" target="_blank">Aaron Jorbin</a>, CTO of Happytables, suggested the team define what &#8220;ready&#8221; means for each of the four core objects before deciding how to move forward. Jorbin noted that right now they don&#8217;t allow for full wp-admin replacements. Other team members countered that argument, saying full admin replacement capability is unrealistic.</p> <p>The conversation then ground to a standstill. Most agreed that locking in the endpoints before merging is the best course of action, but struggled to define at what stage those endpoints are ready for inclusion. An agreement has not yet been reached.</p> <div id="author-bio-box" style="background: #f8f8f8; border-top: 2px solid #cccccc; border-bottom: 2px solid #cccccc; color: #333333"><h3><a style="color: #555555;" href="http://torquemag.io/author/eschiola/" title="All posts by Emily Schiola" rel="author">Emily Schiola</a></h3><div class="bio-gravatar"><img alt='Emily Schiola' src='http://s3-torquehhvm.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/uploads/2015/10/Emily-Schiola_avatar_1444674499-70x70.jpg' class='avatar avatar-70 photo' height='70' width='70' /></div><a target="_blank" href="https://twitter.com/ESchiola" class="bio-icon bio-icon-twitter"></a><p class="bio-description">Emily Schiola is an editorial assistant at Torque.

They discussed the talks from A Day of REST, but also about the impact of the new API more broadly as well.</p> <p>If you’re at all interested in the REST API, this is an excellent round table to listen to.</p> <!--[if lt IE 9]><script>document.createElement('audio');</script><![endif]--> <audio class="wp-audio-shortcode" id="audio-20699-1" preload="none" style="width: 100%; visibility: hidden;" controls="controls"><source type="audio/mpeg" src="https://audio.simplecast.com/25895.mp3?_=1" /><a href="https://audio.simplecast.com/25895.mp3">https://audio.simplecast.com/25895.mp3</a></audio> <p><a href="http://audio.simplecast.com/25895.mp3">Direct download</a></p> <h3>Links</h3> <ul> <li><a href="https://feelingrestful.com/">A Day of Rest</a></li> <li><a href="https://poststatus.com/a-day-of-rest-review/">Post Status summary of the conference and links to slides</a></li> </ul> <p><em>Photo credit: Aaron Jorbin</em></p> text/html 2016-02-05T16:58:54+01:00 http://abetterplanetwp.com A Better Planet REST API meeting summary, Feb 4 https://make.wordpress.org/core/2016/02/05/rest-api-meeting-summary-feb-4/ <p>The core REST API team, members of the WordPress.com API team, and other interested developers met to discuss the REST API.  Full logs of the meeting <a href="https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/core-restapi/p1454626846001168" target="_blank">are available on Slack</a>.</p> <h3>Existing endpoints</h3> <p>The meeting opened with a discussion of the existing endpoints: what is and isn&#8217;t ready. <a href='https://profiles.wordpress.org/rmccue' class='mention'>@rmccue</a> summarized:</p> <ul> <li class="p1"><span class="s1">The main focus has been on the 4 &#8220;core&#8221; objects in WordPress: <em>posts, terms, comments, and users</em>.</span></li> <li class="p1"><strong>Posts</strong> <ul> <li class="p1"><strong>Password-protected posts</strong> are <a href="https://github.com/WP-API/WP-API/issues/1055#issuecomment-90283873" target="_blank">going to be ignored from the API</a> until we have a good solution.</li> <li><strong>Meta</strong> <ul> <li class="p1">Post (and other) meta has been pushed out into a separate feature plugin led by <a href='https://profiles.wordpress.org/jeremyfelt' class='mention'>@jeremyfelt</a>. Discussion is <a href="https://github.com/WP-API/WP-API/issues/2149" target="_blank">on the github repo</a>.</li> <li class="p1">The main issue is that there&#8217;s no differentiation between meta fields. Meta could be added via the Custom Fields meta box, or by a plugin.</li> <li>Enhancing <code>register_meta()</code> in core would allow opt-in to the meta REST API &#8211; requiring some core work. See the patch on <a href="https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/35658">#35658</a> for details.</li> <li>There is no current way to explicitly register meta as public.</li> <li>We need to support object meta (post, user, comment, term) and object types (custom post types, etc)</li> </ul> </li> <li><strong>Media</strong> <ul> <li>Mostly complete (it&#8217;s a custom post type).</li> <li>Some special handling around uploading media.</li> </ul> </li> <li><strong>Autosaves and post previews</strong> <ul> <li>Tricky, but we think we have a solution for that moving forward.</li> <li>Working on them in a separate feature plugin instead.</li> <li>This will be an enhancement to the API in the future, and doesn&#8217;t block compatibility.</li> </ul> </li> </ul> </li> <li><strong>Terms</strong> <ul> <li>Work great.</li> </ul> </li> <li><strong>Users</strong> <ul> <li>Works great; undergoing final review.</li> </ul> </li> <li><strong>Comments</strong> <ul> <li>Works; custom comment types are harder until core better supports them.</li> </ul> </li> </ul> <h3>Merge proposal and discussion</h3> <p>An extensive discussion ensued regarding the possibility and appropriateness of merging the endpoints into core. The discussion continued for over an hour; mainly covering whether we should merge the 4 core endpoints, or wait for a <em>complete API</em> before merging&#8230;  and what the definition of a complete API is.</p> <p>The REST API team&#8217;s <strong>proposal</strong> is that we <strong>merge the 4 core objects</strong> in the REST API with full read, create, update, delete support, then add more peripheral features <strong>when they&#8217;re ready. </strong></p> <p><a href='https://profiles.wordpress.org/matt' class='mention'>@matt</a> argued that we <em>wait until the API supports everything you can do in wp-admin before merging</em>.</p> <p>The discussion revolved around these proposals and what is best for the WordPress project. Would merging the existing well developed endpoints sooner help or hinder developer adoption, and further iteration/improvement? Would delaying the endpoint merge help or hinder progress?</p> <p>Here are some key comments from the discussion.</p> <ul> <li><a href='https://profiles.wordpress.org/rmccue' class='mention'>@rmccue</a> <em><em> </em></em><em><span class="s1">The approach to the API needs to change from &#8220;the API team creates all of the API&#8221; to &#8220;the API team controls the general shape of the API, and each team works with it&#8221;</span></em></li> <li><a href='https://profiles.wordpress.org/danielbachhuber' class='mention'>@danielbachhuber</a> <em>Options / a Site Resource is more easily viable, as are Plugins and Themes.

Don&#8217;t answer that. I don&#8217;t want to start a debate. But what I think we all can agree on is the indisputable fact that navigation is vital to a site&#8217;s success.</h2> <p>Typically, navigational menus are limited to a few key locations on a site: the top of the page, the right or left sidebar, or in a expandable mobile-style menu. A lot of this has to do with the fact this is where navigation has always been on websites. Menus continue to stay in these locations because that&#8217;s where your visitors expect them to be.</p> <p>So that got me thinking about websites that don&#8217;t prescribe to these preconceived notions of what navigation should be. How do they experiment with the form? And though the location or structure is different, are these alternative navigational menus still effective?<span id="more-151723"></span></p> <p>I went on a hunt to find sites that have reimagined navigation. They&#8217;ve thrown convention out the window. And while the menus featured in this collection might not be ideal for businesses, it definitely offers some food for thought in terms of what&#8217;s possible from a creative design standpoint.</p> <p>So, let&#8217;s get on to the list and explore some sites that approach navigation as creatively and originally as any other design element.</p> <h3>The Forecaster Interactive</h3> </div><div class="pic-full-screen "> <img class="attachment-1364x1364 size-1364x1364" src="https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/the-forecaster-e1454621665842.png" alt="the forecaster" width="1364" height="377" /> </div><div class="container"> <p><a href="http://theforecaster-interactive.com" target="_blank">The Forecaster Interactive</a> is more than just a website, it&#8217;s an experience. This site is designed to be immersive and act as an accompaniment to the documentary film, The Forecaster, which tells the life story of Martin Armstrong, a man who made financial predictions in the 1980s that disrupted national economies. The site is presented like a print newspaper with large headlines and columns of text.</p> <p>It does have a traditional expanding menu in the upper lefthand corner that works on desktop and mobile devices, but the presentation within it is interesting. It offers three tabs of navigation options to explore. The first covers key events from the film, the second is a category filter, and the third is a list of resources and external links related to the movie, Martin Armstrong, and the press.</p> <p>This website was custom designed by <a href="http://nicoroicke.com" target="_blank">Nico Roicke</a>. It uses two plugins including Dr Splash page (which may be proprietary) and All-in-One SEO Pack.</p> <h3>Eginstill</h3> <div class="pic-full "> <img class="attachment-735x735 size-735x735" src="https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/eginstill.png" alt="eginstill" width="735" height="307" /> </div> <p>The <a href="http://www.eginstill.com" target="_blank">Eginstill</a> website offers a seamless combination of traditional navigation with interesting innovation that makes for a more intuitive and immersive experience. When the site loads, you&#8217;re presented with a fullscreen image of a stylish kitchen with some flavor text an a downward arrow prompting you to scroll.</p> <p>As you scroll, the image shrinks down to a portrait window and the rest of the site emerges around it. It&#8217;s minimal in design, with plenty of whitespace. But what I particularly loved here was the navigation on the lefthand side of the screen. Individual kitchen projects are listed and when you hover the curser over them, a small thumbnail image appears, offering a quick preview of the end result before you click.</p> <p>The site was created by <a href="http://www.buildinamsterdam.com" target="_blank">Build in Amsterdam</a> and uses a custom theme to pull off its stylish design and simple yet effective navigational elements.</p> <h3>Team Les Chameaux</h3> </div><div class="pic-full-screen "> <img class="attachment-1364x1364 size-1364x1364" src="https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/team-chameaux-e1454621719667.png" alt="team-chameaux" width="1364" height="316" /> </div><div class="container"> <p>The navigation for the <a href="http://teamleschameaux.fr" target="_blank">Team Les Chameaux</a> site looks pretty straightforward on the surface but upon further inspection, it&#8217;s easy to see how it differs from what&#8217;s typical. There is a clearly identified &#8220;Menu&#8221; on the lefthand side of the screen but its contents are marked only by letters. Upon hover, these letters expand to reveal the full name of each section including &#8220;Team,&#8221; &#8220;Media,&#8221; and &#8220;Contact.&#8221;</p> <p>Scrolling also takes you directly to each of these sections and within them, there are further sub-sections to explore. For instance, in the &#8220;News&#8221; section, there are numbers you can click to reveal additional news stories.</p> <p>The creator of this site is <a href="http://quentinhocde.fr" target="_blank">Quentin Hocdé</a> using a custom-built theme. The site also uses Contact Form 7.</p> <h3>Quentin Hocdé</h3> <div class="pic-full "> <img class="attachment-735x735 size-735x735" src="https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/quentin-hocde.png" alt="quentin-hocde" width="735" height="381" /> </div> <p>Speaking of, <a href="http://quentinhocde.fr" target="_blank">Quentin Hocdé</a>, this French developer has a portfolio site that&#8217;s built on WordPress that offers a truly unique presentation. It&#8217;s quite impressive in how it manages to be very eye-catching while totally simple. This site is essentially a one-pager that presents floating white dots on a dark blue background that swirl around to form different shapes. Upon first loading, the site presents the word &#8220;Hello&#8221; and on the lefthand side of the screen, simple navigation displays the words &#8220;I&#8217;m a Junior Creative Developer.&#8221;</p> <p>When you scroll, the swirling dots change to pink and form a new shape. The navigation on the left now offers up one of Hocdé&#8217;s projects. Scroll again, we get another shape in yellow with another project to explore. Keep scrolling and the whole thing starts over from the beginning. There&#8217;s also a nice About link in the upper righthand corner that displays a simple popover.</p> <h3>Esy-floresy studio animacji</h3> <p><a rel="lightbox[151723]" class="blog-thumbnail" href="http://www.esy-floresy.com/en" target="_blank"></div><div class="pic-full-screen "> <img class="attachment-1364x1364 size-1364x1364" src="https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/esy-floresy-e1454621772575.png" alt="esy-floresy" width="1364" height="404" /> </div><div class="container"></a></p> <p><a href="http://www.esy-floresy.com/en" target="_blank">Esy-floresy</a> is an animation studio based in Poland that offers a wide range of animation services including 2D character animation, motion graphics, multimedia, music videos, and more. The site&#8217;s navigation is largely conventional. There is a primary menu across the top of the page. However, the introductory images in the viewport provide a whimsical, circus-inspired scroll-triggered animation effect that means users are presented with navigation first thing.</p> <p>The site itself relies heavily on parallax effects to help to tell the story of the studio. Each section on the page has additional navigational elements that help direct visitors to where they want to go. This site uses a custom theme created by <a href="http://jaceksuski.pl" target="_blank">Jacek Suski.</a></p> <h3>Piet Oudolf &#8211; Gardens and Landscapes</h3> <p><a rel="lightbox[151723]" class="blog-thumbnail" href="http://oudolf.com" target="_blank"><div class="pic-full "> <img class="attachment-735x735 size-735x735" src="https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/piet-oudolf.png" alt="piet-oudolf" width="735" height="302" /> </div></a></p> <p><a href="http://oudolf.com" target="_blank">Piet Oudolf</a> is a garden and landscape designer from Haarlem, the Netherlands who creates a multitude of beautiful installations in The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, and in other countries as well. The site does utilize traditional navigation across the top. When the user hovers over the header area, the menu drops down to reveal three columns of link options including those for Projects, Information, and Private Garden.</p> <p>What stood out to me on this site, however, is the way the gardens and projects are presented. Each location is listed as large text with an image of the project itself used to fill in said text. When you hover on the project name, the full image appears, offering a great preview of the project before you click. It&#8217;s really quite innovative.</p> <p>This site uses a custom theme developed by <a href="http://studionaam.com" target="_blank">Studio Naam</a>. It also uses the WP Retina 2x plugin.</p> <h3>Between Red &amp; Toe</h3> <p><a rel="lightbox[151723]" class="blog-thumbnail" href="http://betweenredandtoe.com" target="_blank"><div class="pic-full "> <img class="attachment-735x735 size-735x735" src="https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/between-red-and-toe.png" alt="between-red-and-toe" width="735" height="353" /> </div></a></p> <p><a href="http://betweenredandtoe.com" target="_blank">Between Red &amp; Toe</a> is a photography journal by Amit Adams that chronicles her life, including capturing her pregnancy. The site uses a grid-style layout but what I found unique is it presents multiple photos together as a single link to all photos in a mini-collection. For instance, at the top of the site is the latest collection called &#8220;Getting Ready&#8221; which features several photos that capture this theme, which are all linked together. When clicked, you&#8217;re then taken to a mini-blog post that discusses this theme and the photos within the collection.</p> <p>Everything is presented minimally. It&#8217;s all about the photos here, which serves the purpose of the site well. This site features another custom designed theme, this time created by the photographer&#8217;s husband, developer <a href="http://nathanadams.net" target="_blank">Nathan Adams</a>.</p> <h3>Bonne Marque</h3> <p><a rel="lightbox[151723]" class="blog-thumbnail" href="http://bonnemarque.se/" target="_blank"><div class="pic-full "> <img class="attachment-735x735 size-735x735" src="https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/bonne-marque.png" alt="bonne-marque" width="735" height="347" /> </div></a></p> <p><a href="http://bonnemarque.se/" target="_blank">Bonne Marque</a> is a design firm led by Alexander Engzell, that reimagines brands. It&#8217;s responsible for re-envisioning websites for a number of clients but its own site might be the most impressive of the bunch, especially in terms of breaking the mold of navigation and function. The homepage is filled with words like &#8220;Bold&#8221; and &#8220;Embody.&#8221; You can scroll to view case studies or you can click the menu on the righthand side of the screen.</p> <p>When clicked, this menu expands and fills the entire viewport. The link to the &#8220;About&#8221; page is featured in the center of the page within a white box that turns blue on hover. The rest of the navigational options are placed at the bottom of the page. Hovering over each provides a small photo preview of the project. Individual project pages include fullscreen videos, and text blocks that are formatted like the pages of a book. The lefthand side of the screen also transforms into a timeline for the project.</p> <p>Bonne Marque is built on a custom theme and uses WP Rocket to boost the site&#8217;s speed.</p> <h3>Bethlehem Steel&#8217;s Hoover-Mason Trestle</h3> <div class="pic-full "> <img class="attachment-735x735 size-735x735" src="https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/hoover-mason.png" alt="hoover-mason" width="735" height="353" /> </div> <p>When you first land on the <a href="http://hoovermason.com/" target="_blank">Bethlehem Steel&#8217;s Hoover-Mason Trestle</a> website, you&#8217;re greeted by a slideshow of photographs and large links to Explore the Trestle, view visitor information, and to hear the stories of those who worked there. If you choose to explore, you&#8217;re taken on a guided tour of the location and through a timeline of its history. There are many unconventional links here like forward and back arrows that take you through a virtual photo tour, a clickable progress line of the location, and more.</p> <p>Plus, for every stop on the tour, additional photos and videos are presented on the righthand side of the screen. You also have the option of view photos, audio, and videos based on their themes. This site uses a custom theme.</p> <h3>Alexander Engzell</h3> <div class="pic-full "> <img class="attachment-735x735 size-735x735" src="https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/engzell.png" alt="engzell" width="735" height="357" /> </div> <p>This name should sound familiar, because he&#8217;s the founder of Bonne Marque, featured above. The personal site for <a href="http://engzell.me/" target="_blank">Alexander Engzell</a> includes some nifty scroll animations and design elements that I really haven&#8217;t seen elsewhere. Links to projects are presented as large photos that extend on hover. What I really like here is the site is completely minimal and foregoes traditional navigation in favor of something that better suits the subject at hand.</p> <p>This site is based on another custom theme developed by Alexander Engzell, Antoine Wodniack, and Himmy Raheriarisoa. It uses Contact Form 7 as well.</p> <h3>Stupid Studios</h3> <p><a rel="lightbox[151723]" class="blog-thumbnail" href="http://stupid-studio.com/" target="_blank"><div class="pic-full "> <img class="attachment-735x735 size-735x735" src="https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/stupid-studios.png" alt="stupid-studios" width="735" height="332" /> </div></a></p> <p><a href="http://stupid-studio.com/" target="_blank">Studio Studios</a> is a design and branding agency based in Denmark that&#8217;s completed designs for  a wide range of projects, all of which include a fun edge. The website is fairly straightforward in its presentation but makes stunning use of fullscreen layouts, interesting graphics, and personalized touches. The primary navigation is tucked away in an expandable menu that opens in a minimal fullscreen overlay.</p> <p>Once you access it, the navigation is impossible to miss, but how it&#8217;s hidden from view at first glance makes the site&#8217;s homepage immediately more immersive. This website is built on a custom theme, like all of the other sites featured here.</p> <h3>Wrapping Up</h3> <p>Navigation is often an element of websites that people don&#8217;t experiment with. After all, it&#8217;s how visitors get around a site. It needs to be intuitive and readily available. There shouldn&#8217;t be any guesswork involved with its use. However, every once in a while, a site comes along that defies expectation and dares to try something new. The sites here definitely do just that, all while still being relatively easy to navigate.</p> <p><b>Did you appreciate the unique navigation featured on these sites?

Most of the times accessibility gets neglected in our effort to create more beautiful websites. This creates problems and bad user experience for people with disabilities. In this article, we will show you how to improve accessibility on your WordPress site.</p> <p><img title="Improving accessibility in WordPress" src="http://cdn2.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/wordpressaccessibility.png" alt="Improving accessibility in WordPress" width="520" height="340" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-32321" srcset="http://cdn3.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/wordpressaccessibility-300x196.png 300w, http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/wordpressaccessibility.png 520w" sizes="(max-width: 520px) 100vw, 520px" /></p> <h4>What is Accessibility in Web Design in WordPress?</h4> <p>Accessibility is a term used to describe design techniques that make a product accessible to users with disabilities. </p> <p>In web design, there are some common best practices that are recommended by experts to make websites more accessible. The same best practices can also be used in your own WordPress website. </p> <p>By making your website more accessible, you can make it easier for many people to use your website without requiring assistance. </p> <p>The problem is that most people using WordPress don&#8217;t know much about web design, accessibility, or design standards. Majority of the people just install a theme that looks great and helps them do what they want to do. We at WPBeginner are guilty of this too, but we are working on improving things around our site.</p> <p>Let&#8217;s take a look at how you can improve the accessibility of your WordPress site without writing any code.</p> <h4>Improving Accessibility of Your WordPress Site</h4> <p>First thing you need to do is install and activate the <a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-accessibility/" title="WP Accessibility" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">WP Accessibility</a> plugin. </p> <p>Upon activation, you need to go to <strong>Settings &raquo; WP Accessibility</strong> to configure the plugin. </p> <p><img title="WP Accessibility Settings" src="http://cdn3.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/wpaccessibility-settings.jpg" alt="WP Accessibility Settings" width="520" height="335" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-32319" srcset="http://cdn4.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/wpaccessibility-settings-300x193.jpg 300w, http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/wpaccessibility-settings.jpg 520w" sizes="(max-width: 520px) 100vw, 520px" /></p> <p>The first section is to remove the title attribute from tag clouds and <a href="http://www.wpbeginner.com/plugins/how-to-create-compact-archives-in-wordpress/" title="How to Create Compact Archives in WordPress">archives</a>. The title attribute is considered to be useless by some accessibility experts. Most screen readers usually ignore the title attribute and instead read the anchor text. </p> <p>In the next section, you can enable the skip link on your website. A skip link allows users to jump directly to the content. This is an extremely useful feature for people using screen readers. Without a skiplink they will have to hear through lots of things like <a href="http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/how-to-add-navigation-menu-in-wordpress-beginners-guide/" title="How to Add Navigation Menu in WordPress (Beginner’s Guide)">navigation menus</a> before they can reach the content part. </p> <p>WP Accessibility provides a variety of accessibility settings, under miscellaneous accessibility settings section. You can go through each option and see if you need it on your site. </p> <p><img title="Miscellaneous Accessibility Settings" src="http://cdn3.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/misc-accessibility-settings.png" alt="Miscellaneous Accessibility Settings" width="520" height="373" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-24409" srcset="http://cdn3.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/misc-accessibility-settings-300x215.png 300w, http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/misc-accessibility-settings.png 520w" sizes="(max-width: 520px) 100vw, 520px" /></p> <p>Some of these options will be checked by default. These options are removing target attribute from links, force search error on empty search submission, and removing tabindex from focusable elements. </p> <p>WP Accessibility plugin comes with an accessibility toolbar. Enabling it will add a toolbar on your website where users can resize fonts or view your site in high contrast color mode. </p> <p><img title="Adding an accessibility toolbar in WordPress" src="http://cdn2.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/accessibility-toolbar.png" alt="Adding an accessibility toolbar in WordPress" width="520" height="268" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-32320" srcset="http://cdn4.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/accessibility-toolbar-300x155.png 300w, http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/accessibility-toolbar.png 520w" sizes="(max-width: 520px) 100vw, 520px" /></p> <p>Lastly, you will see the color contrast checker tool. Using this tool, you can test the foreground and background color contrast ratio and whether they match the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. You may also want to see our guide on <a href="http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/how-to-choose-a-perfect-color-scheme-for-your-wordpress-site/" title="How to Choose a Perfect Color Scheme for Your WordPress Site">choosing the perfect color scheme for your WordPress site</a>.</p> <p><img title="Color contrast testing tool" src="http://cdn4.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/color-test-tool.jpg" alt="Color contrast testing tool" width="520" height="304" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-24413" srcset="http://cdn.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/color-test-tool-300x175.jpg 300w, http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/color-test-tool.jpg 520w" sizes="(max-width: 520px) 100vw, 520px" /></p> <p>You can find out the colors your theme is using in the stylesheet, or you can use <a href="https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/eye-dropper/hmdcmlfkchdmnmnmheododdhjedfccka?hl=en" title="Eye Dropper" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Eye Dropper</a>, a color picker extension for Google Chrome. </p> <p>To learn more about the accessibility features of the plugin, take a look at <a href="https://make.wordpress.org/accessibility/wp-accessibility-plugin/" title="WP Accessibility Plugin Page" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">WP Accessibility Plugins</a> page on WordPress accessibility team website. </p> <p>We hope this article helped you improve accessibility of your WordPress site.

Straight from the repository:</p> <blockquote><p>No setup required! You only need an SSL certificate, and this plugin will do the rest.</p></blockquote> <p>And it really does. Some of the features include:</p> <ul> <li>Simple installation and activation (and then you&#8217;re good to go)</li> <li>Debug mode for those who are a bit more technical</li> <li>Uses both htaccess or JavaScript to route requests (depending on your setup)</li> <li>Insecure content reference is parsed and fixed automatically</li> </ul> <p>In fact, here&#8217;s what it looks like running on <a href="https://firstversion.co">The First Version</a>:</p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-35234" src="https://tommcfarlin.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/ssl-for-wordpress-installed.png" alt="Really Simple SSL for WordPress installed" width="700" height="533" srcset="https://tommcfarlin.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/ssl-for-wordpress-installed-300x228.png 300w, https://tommcfarlin.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/ssl-for-wordpress-installed.png 700w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></p> <p>From the perspective of a WordPress developer, I specifically appreciate:</p> <ul> <li>The fact that it <em>doesn&#8217;t</em> add yet another menu item. Instead, it adds itself to the <em>Settings</em> menu.</li> <li>It gives clear, visual indicators as to if it&#8217;s working or not.</li> <li>If you&#8217;re unsure about something, it has documentation to explain what something is about.</li> <li>It offers an optional debug mode that you can turn on to review whatever may be causing you problems.</li> </ul> <p>Of course, there&#8217;s more, but those a few of the things that seem harder to come by in many plugins. It&#8217;s nice to see something built that follows more of &#8220;the WordPress way&#8221; of doing things.</p> <p>Anyway, assuming you&#8217;ve gone through the process of obtaining an SSL certificate, installed it, and are now looking for how to configure your website, <a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/really-simple-ssl/">this plugin</a> is one of your best bets.</p> <p><a rel="nofollow" href="https://tommcfarlin.com/ssl-for-wordpress/">Really Simple SSL For WordPress</a> was written by <a rel="nofollow" href="https://tommcfarlin.com/author/tom/">Tom</a>.

Sure it&#8217;s free, but we all know what that really means. Over the years, businesses and organizations have called upon the likes of freelancers and agencies to aide in extending WordPress to fit their unique requirements.</p> <p>But what if you&#8217;re not a developer or a designer? Heck, what if you&#8217;re not even a traditional consultant, how would you launch your own WordPress career?</p> <p>Today I&#8217;m joined by <a href="http://bobwp.com">Bob Dunn</a> who built a career off of training and educating around the WordPress ecosystem. I&#8217;m bullish on this space and if you&#8217;re looking to dive into the deep-end &#8212; this is the episode for you!</p> <p><span id="more-6841"></span></p> <h3>Options for the non-technical WordPress business owner</h3> <p><strong>Listen to the show</strong></p> <iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F245462169&visual=true&color=0066cc&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false"></iframe> <p>Making a living in the WordPress space without having to ship a line of code sounds like the good life, doesn&#8217;t it? There&#8217;s a certain freedom when you&#8217;re not constantly pressured to balance <a href="https://mattreport.com/hello-my-name-is-profit-a-guide/">client expectations</a> for the services you deliver.</p> <p>Bob and I cover some of the most popular ways for you to monetize your info-based WordPress business. This is a must-listen and one of my favorite episodes that I&#8217;ve recorded, enjoy!</p> <h4>Affiliate sales</h4> <p>An age-old way of making money in the WordPress space, linking to affiliate products. This is the lowest hanging fruit and something you could dip your toe into by simply recommending your favorite WordPress products.</p> <h4>Paid reviews</h4> <p>Something I&#8217;m currently offering, paid reviews. Bob has also started doing paid reviews, amongst other notable blogs in our space. Of course, I&#8217;d challenge you to find a unique voice and point of view if you pursue this route.</p> <h4>Advertise/Sponsorship</h4> <p>A traditional method which requires you to really jump on the consistent content publishing routine to drive loads of traffic and build an audience.</p> <h4>Membership/Courses</h4> <p>This is a very common route for today&#8217;s online entrepreneur to pursue. It&#8217;s something I&#8217;ve experimented with here on the Matt Report with some limited success. The most notable success in our space, would be <a href="http://poststatus.com">Post Status</a> and <a href="http://wpelevation.com">WP Elevation</a>.</p> <h4>Workshops</h4> <p>The most intense of the bunch, workshops can be a lucrative venture, but require a lot of hands-on time. In today&#8217;s episode, Bob shares his own experiences with running workshops and why he&#8217;s decided to wind them down in 2016.</p> <p><strong>What are you doing to monetize your business?</strong></p> <p>I&#8217;d love to hear what steps you&#8217;ve taken to monetize your business. Especially since I recently published my first <a href="https://mattreport.com/captain-form-plugin-review/">paid WordPress review</a>. Is it a new members-only course or a more traditional hands-on training consultation?

More importantly, if you look around at every place and situation where you see teaching happening, most of the models we&#8217;re exposed to haven&#8217;t changed that much either.</p> <p>So whether it&#8217;s information or experience, nothing it helping us grasp the reality of what we know now about how ideas stick.</p> <p>Which is why I created a multi-part course called <strong>Sticky Teaching.</strong></p> <p>Let me be honest. I&#8217;m not telling you I&#8217;m the best presenter in the world. I&#8217;m not telling you that I&#8217;m captivating and motivating and that I make millions from single speeches.</p> <p>Nope, none of that.</p> <p>But what I can tell you is that over the last decade, based on the neuroscience that&#8217;s available to all of us (if you feel like reading a lot), I&#8217;ve developed an understanding about how to shape and deliver content in a way that ensures people will remember it for more than an hour (or even a month).</p> <p>And if you&#8217;ve put in so much time to prepare your content, wouldn&#8217;t you want it to stick? Wouldn&#8217;t you want others to be talking about it months from now? Sharing it with others?</p> <p>For me, every time I get on stage, I want to deliver memorable presentations.</p> <h2>Improve your next presentation.</h2> <p>You don&#8217;t have to be dynamic. You don&#8217;t have to be charismatic. You don&#8217;t have to be an incredible storyteller or orator.</p> <p>But you do need to know how to structure, prepare, and deliver your next talk in a way that it will stick in heads of your audience.</p> <p>And that&#8217;s what I&#8217;ve prepared for you.</p> <p><a class="button button-primary" href="https://vimeo.com/ondemand/stickyteaching">Become a better presenter now.</a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://chrislema.com/memorable-presentations/">Are you trying to create memorable presentations?</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://chrislema.com">ChrisLema.com</a>.</p> text/html 2016-01-29T19:29:20+01:00 http://abetterplanetwp.com A Better Planet Give Your Jetpack Themes a Boost http://themeshaper.com/2016/01/29/jetpack-dependency-script/ A text/html 2016-01-21T11:02:17+01:00 http://abetterplanetwp.com A Better Planet How To Create And Customize A WordPress Child Theme https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2016/01/create-customize-wordpress-child-theme/ text/html 2016-01-11T20:28:44+01:00 http://abetterplanetwp.com A Better Planet Easy Content Types acquired by ThemeIsle https://pippinsplugins.com/easy-content-types-acquired/ <p>A few weeks ago <a href="https://pippinsplugins.com/selling-easy-content-types/">I announced</a> that my Easy Content Types plugin was available for purchase. After five years of maintaining the plugin, I felt it was time to find a new home for the plugin where it would be properly cared for and developed. Today I&#8217;m thrilled to announce that the plugin has been acquired and is now under new management.</p> <p><span id="more-82520"></span></p> <p>Easy Content Types has been acquired by Vertigo Studio, SRL, the company behind <a href="http://themeisle.com/">ThemeIsle</a> and <a href="http://www.codeinwp.com/blog/">CodeInWP</a>. I believe this will be an excellent fit and I&#8217;m truly excited for the future of the plugin.</p> <p>When putting Easy Content Types up for sale, it was important to me that the new owner be someone (or a group of someones) that could adequately maintain it while also pushing the plugin forward by renewing the development. I wanted this both for selfish reasons of desiring to see the plugin live on but also because I want my valued customers that have supported me for the last 5 years to be well taken care of.</p> <p>To all of you, my wonderful customers: you are in good hands and Easy Content Types has an exiting future ahead of it.</p> <p>A few words from Ionut Neagu, the new owner:</p> <blockquote><p>I’m really excited to welcome Easy Content Types to our CodeinWP plugin family! Scratch that … &#8220;excited&#8221; doesn’t do it justice. I literally <i>can’t wait</i> to see this thing grow and help even more WordPress developers than it already has. Easy Content Types has some great history behind it – it’s been on the market for 5+ years, which makes it the oldest plugin we’ve had the privilege to work with. (5 in <i>internet years</i> … how many is that in <i>normal years</i>?)</p> <p>I also believe in the plugin&#8217;s importance and place on the market. Custom content types have been with WordPress for a while, but to this day, there hasn’t been a simple way to work with them without a helper of some kind. Easy Content Types has been filling this gap for the better part of the decade, and we’re keen to continue this tradition!</p> <p>Also, this sort of acquisitions are always a great experience for us … call it <i>accelerated learning</i>. The thing is, if you really want to cater to your customers the best you can, there’s no other way to do it than to either build or acquire the best products out there. Easy Content Types is exactly that. Plus, working on Pippin’s code is a joy!</p></blockquote> <p>Easy Content Types can now be found at <a href="http://themeisle.com/plugins/easy-content-types" target="_blank">http://themeisle.com/plugins/easy-content-types</a>.</p> <p><strong>Will customers with a still-valid license key continue to receive support?</strong></p> <p>Yes. One of the clauses in the sale contract states that all customers with a valid license key will be given complete access to technical support up until the expiration date of their license key. The only change will be who you contact for support. To receive support, register an account on <a href="http://themeisle.com/forums" target="_blank">ThemeIsle&#8217;s website</a> and submit a ticket in their support forums.</p> <p><strong>Can expired license keys be renewed through ThemeIsle?</strong></p> <p>Yes, ThemeIsle has agreed to honor renewals. Contact them directly with any further questions.</p> <p><strong>Will the price of the plugin change?</strong></p> <p>Possibly. The sale contract does not dictate that the price must stay unchanged so ThemeIsle is free to make changes if they see fit.</p> <p><strong>Will Pippin be involved in development going forward?</strong></p> <p>No, with the acquisition of the plugin, ThemeIsle is taking over all development. I will be available to ThemeIsle and their team of developers to assist with questions, issues, or migration details for the next six months but I will no longer be involved with the development of Easy Content Types.</p> text/html 2015-12-29T19:16:41+01:00 http://abetterplanetwp.com A Better Planet Downsize your WordPress database by removing transients http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Wprecipes/~3/sYtvpIfp_pw/downsize-your-database-by-removing-transients <p>First of it all, login to your phpmyadmin and choose your WordPress database.

Two hundred thirteen participants from forty-one countries completed the survey. Thank you all. </p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/2015-bbpress-flags.jpg" width="1110" height="410" alt="Country Flags of the 2015 bbPress Survey Participants" class="alignnone" /></p> <p><span id="more-165891"></span></p> <h2>Goal</h2> <p>Guide the direction of bbPress plugin development in 2015.</p> <h3>Objectives</h3> <p>1. Discover current and actual bbPress usage.<br /> 2. Gauge user interest in potential new features.<br /> 3. Identify key areas for improvement.<br /> 4. Prioritize areas of bbPress development.<br /> 5. Set benchmarks to streamline development processes.<br /> 6. Identify volunteers who are interested in contributing to bbPress development. </p> <h2>Survey Method/Design</h2> <p>The questionnaire we posted this year was based on the survey questions in the 2014 bbPress Survey. We went over the the questions used, replaced, and improved others. The final twenty-five questions for the survey set up using <a href="http://polldaddy.com">Polldaddy.com</a> were categorized in the same manner as the year before:<br /> a) You and bbPress<br /> b) Themes and Plugins<br /> c) Components and Participation<br /> d) Opinions and Requests</p> <p>The online survey was created using <a href="http://polldaddy.com">Polldaddy.com</a>, a great service that provides polling widgets for blogs, websites, and social networks. A variety of survey question types were employed to gather the data required: multiple choices, check boxes, free text, email address box, and open‐ended questions.</p> <p>Prior to analyzing the data collected, empty forms were deleted and submissions marked as “incomplete responses” were reviewed individually. Submissions which had no responses in the second and third pages of the survey were excluded from this report.</p> <h2>Key Findings</h2> <p><strong>1. Software Versions</strong>. </p> <p>Ninety-seven percent of participants using bbPress 2.5+ in their production sites are on the latest WordPress version (WP 4.2 at the time of survey). Notably, 71% of participants using the legacy bbPress &lt;=1.x.x are also on the latest WP version as well. </p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/wp-bb-versions.jpg" width="1234" height="335" alt="Graph of WordPress and bbPress versions used" class="alignnone" /> </p> <p><strong>2. bbPress Users</strong>. </p> <p>For the second year in a row, the majority of our respondents used bbPress for their own sites (51%). They were followed by those who create sites with bbPress forums for others (30%), Keymasters of bbPress forums (5%), advanced bbPress developers (5%), never used bbPress but considering it (5%), theme developers (3%), plugin developers (1%), and member of forum community (1%).</p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/2015-bbpress-users.jpg" width="899" height="283" alt="Graph of bbPress Users" class="alignnone" /></p> <p><strong>3. bbPress In Your Language</strong>. </p> <p>The top three languages used are English (74%), German (7%), and French (6.5%) for the second year in a row. </p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/bbpress-languages.jpg" width="964" height="644" alt="Visualization of languages used in bbPress sites" class="alignnone" /></p> <p><strong>4. bbPress Installations</strong>: </p> <p>Seventy-five percent of bbPress forums are activated in regular WordPress installations in either the domain root, physical directory, or physical subdomain. The remaining 25% are on multisite installations where more than half have activated bbPress network-wide and the rest activated bbPress in multiple networks.</p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/2015-bbpress-wp-installs.jpg" width="900" height="237" alt="Graph of preferred bbPress activations" class="alignnone" /> </p> <p><strong>5. Volunteer Sign-ups</strong>. </p> <p>Eighteen respondents from 9 countries signed up to learn how they can contribute to the project. 50% of those who signed up to volunteer are respondents who &#8220;use bbPress for own sites&#8221;, 30% are respondents who &#8220;create sites with bbPress forums for others&#8221;, 10% &#8220;have never used bbPress but considering it&#8221;, and 5% each for &#8220;advanced bbPress developers&#8221; and “Keymasters of bbPress forums.” Thank you. We will be contacting you soon.</p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/2015-volunteers.jpg" width="794" height="280" alt="Chart showing volunteers" class="alignnone" /></p> <p><strong>6. bbPress Site Types</strong>.</p> <p>The top five types remain the same as last year’s except for Academic/educational sites which increased by 5% this year to tie for 5th. The top placers are: Generic (40%), Technical (28%), Business (28%), Non-profit(25%), Gaming and Academic (14%). </p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/bbpress-types.jpg" width="963" height="647" alt="Visualization of types of bbPress sites" class="alignnone" /></p> <p><strong>7. How participants found out about the survey</strong>. </p> <p>Fifty-one percent of respondents found out about this 2015 survey through bbPress blog post, Forum post, and Twitter update. Huge props to Jeff Chandler (<a href="https://profiles.wordpress.org/jeffr0">@jeffr0</a>) of WP Tavern for getting in 29% of the respondents through his blog post, Twitter update, and Tavern feed in the WP admin dashboard. Props as well to The Whip Newsletter WPMUDev (7%), make.wordpress.org/support (<a href="https://profiles.wordpress.org/jdembowski">@jdembowski</a>) and Google search results (2%), WP Greek Community, Better Planet, bpdevel.wordpress.com (1%), and Slack, Automattic, fastwp.de, Feed, Friend, managewp.com, WordPress Planet.</p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/2015-bbpress-promo.jpg" width="898" height="346" alt="Screenshot of charts showing sources of survey respondents " class="alignnone" /> </p> <p><strong>8. Theming bbPress forums</strong>. </p> <p>The top three choices remain the same as that of last year&#8217;s survey: Free WP theme with default bbPress theme compatibility (32%), My custom theme/s with completely custom templates/CSS (32%), and My custom theme/s using bbPress theme compatibility (31.5%). </p> <p>Customizing bbPress is easier now. You can go to the bbPress codex to learn <a href="https://codex.bbpress.org/layout-and-functionality-examples-you-can-use/">how to change layout and functionality</a> or <a href="https://codex.bbpress.org/bbpress-styling-crib/">how to change styles of forum elements</a>, among others.</p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/2015-bbpress-theming1.jpg" width="899" height="236" alt="Preferred theme development" class="alignnone" /></p> <p><strong>9. bbPress Theme Features Wanted</strong>. </p> <p>For the second year in a row, the top three preferences are: Responsive (69.5%), Light and Fresh Design (52%), and Compatible with the latest bbPress version (49%). Preference for “Responsive, mobile-first themes” comes in fourth at 39%. </p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/bbpress-theme-features.jpg" width="898" height="236" alt="Graph of preferred theme features" class="alignnone" /></p> <p><strong>10. bbPress-Specific Plugins used</strong>. </p> <p>Almost 25% of respondents voted BuddyPress as the top plugin used, a 150% increase from last year’s survey. This could bee because per <a href="https://buddypress.org/2015/05/2015-buddypress-survey-results/">results of the 2015 BuddyPress Survey</a>, at least half of the BP sites have activated bbPress forums. The seamless integration of bbPress and BuddyPress is due to the fact that both official WordPress plugins are led by <a href="https://profiles.wordpress.org/johnjamesjacoby/">@johnjamesjacoby</a>. In addition, members of the BP core team have contributed to bbPress dev and members of the bbPress core team have contributed to BP dev as well. Sweet <img src="https://bbpress.org/wp-includes/images/smilies/simple-smile.png" alt=":)" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>Following closely in the most mentioned plugins category are the popular GD bbPress Attachments plugin (21.82%), GD bbPress Tools (16.36%), and bbPress Enable TinyMCE Visual Tab &amp; responses with &#8220;No bbPress-specific plugins used&#8221; (8.18%), the top 4 responses last year. You can find the list of all plugins mentioned in the survey along with ranking and links to repository pages in <a href="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-JZjSvg3oUEBgdKcaRdMc3qOHgdbd5ADNqXPt4U3D38/edit#gid=0">this Google spreadsheet</a>. </p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/plugins.jpg" width="1080" height="1080" alt="Visualization of plugins used by respondents" class="alignnone" /></p> <p><strong>11. Participation in bbPress development</strong>. </p> <p>Twenty-nine percent of respondents have contributed towards the development of bbPress this year. The top three ways they have participated in the project remained the same as last year’s survey: helping out in the bbPress support forums (44%), reported bugs in bbPress Trac (32.5%), and submitted translations of bbPress (19%). </p> <p>While there was a slight increase in the number of contributors, most of the respondents have limited their participation in one to two activities this year. Last year, the majority of respondents were active in three or more volunteer opportunities. This shift is shown in the decreases of participation levels across the board except for a very slight increases in two: submitting themes and plugins to the WP repository with bbPress support. </p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/2015-bbpress-participation.jpg" width="898" height="369" alt="Graph of how respondents contributed to bbPress development" class="alignnone" /></p> <p><strong>12. Devices used to access forums</strong>. </p> <p>Desktops and Laptops were the top two devices used most often to navigate the forums, followed by Smartphones and Tablets. While the ranking was the same as last year’s survey, the increases in usage of smartphones and especially tablets to navigate through the forums is noticeable. Fortunately, bbPress provides responsive stylesheets which are relatively easy to customize. </p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/2015-bbpress-devices.jpg" width="1203" height="301" alt="Graph of devices used to navigate bbPress forums" class="alignnone" /> </p> <p><strong>13. Other Forum Software Evaluated.</strong></p> <p>Top five are repeats from last year&#8217;s survey: 1) phpBB forums = 66%, 2) vbulletin forums = 48%, 3) SimplePress plugin = 41.5%, 4) Vanilla forums = 35.5%, and 5) MyBB =27%. </p> <p>Thanks to <a href="https://profiles.wordpress.org/netweb/">@netweb</a>, you can import data from most of the forum software mentioned above. For the current list of available forum importers/converters plus instructions on how to use them, check out <a href="https://codex.bbpress.org/getting-started/importing-data/import-forums/">this bbPress Codex article</a>.</p> <p><strong>14. Most Requested Features.</strong></p> <p>For the second year in a row, the top requested features are: Attachments (42.5%), Ajaxification of Topics and Replies (41.5%), and Moderation tools in the front end (39%).</p> <p><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/2015-bbpress-features.jpg" width="893" height="263" alt="Graph of top three features wanted" class="alignnone" /></p> <h2>Acknowledgements</h2> <p><strong>Survey Participants</strong>: Thank you to the 213 survey participants who completed this survey.<br /> <strong>Online Survey Solution</strong>: <a href="https://polldaddy.com/">Polldaddy.com</a> and <a href="https://automattic.com/">Automattic.com</a> for the corporate account<br /> <strong>Survey Preparation</strong>: <a href="https://profiles.wordpress.org/mercime/">@mercime</a>, <a href="https://profiles.wordpress.org/johnjamesjacoby/">@johnjamesjacoby</a>, and <a href="https://profiles.wordpress.org/netweb/">@netweb</a><br /> <strong>Survey Report</strong>: <a href="http://d3js.org/">D3.js</a>, <a href="http://tagxedo.com">tagxedo.com</a>, <a href="https://www.microsoft.com/">Microsoft Excel</a>, <a href="https://drive.google.com/">Google Documents &amp; Spreadsheets</a>, <a href="https://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/">fontawesome</a>, and <a href="https://github.com/">Github.com</a> (gh-pages).</p> <h2>Moving Forward</h2> <p>For those concerned about the future of this project or about continued development, rest assured that bbPress will be around for a long long time. The <a href="https://bbpress.svn.wordpress.org/trunk/src/humans.txt">bbPress core team</a> has been involved in the process of migrating the WordPress Support Forums (English and all Rosetta sites) from bbPress 1.x.x to bbPress 2.5.8 starting with one European-language forums subsite which has been already ported and being tested on. While this migration has been discussed many times and often over the years, <a href="https://profiles.wordpress.org/johnjamesjacoby/">@johnjamesjacoby</a> formally started the process when he <a href="https://make.wordpress.org/meta/2015/05/15/wp-org-forums-plugins-audit/">posted the results of an audit</a> to show the custom functionality required for a successful migration. </p> <p>The other volunteer bbPress core team members are also involved with this migration. <a href="https://profiles.wordpress.org/jmdodd/">@jmdodd</a> has migrated two plugins to bbPress 2.5.8. <a href="https://profiles.wordpress.org/netweb/">@netweb </a> has been on hand during the migration process in the first site, setting up and improving unit tests, and very active in bbPress Trac and Forums, among other volunteer efforts. If you’re interested to help in migrating other 1.x.x plugins to 2.5.8, be sure to put your name in JJJ’s post and also join the #meta-i18n channel on <a href="https://chat.wordpress.org">Slack</a>.</p> <p>What does this all mean for you? More eyes on the bbPress codebase because along with the bbPress core team, volunteers from the <a href="https://make.wordpress.org/support/">WP Support team</a> and <a href="https://make.wordpress.org/meta/">WP Meta Team</a> are involved in this project. Any/all lessons learned due to this migration which would serve more than 8.15 Million WordPress.org users, can only translate to improvements to the bbPress code and thereby benefiting the whole bbPress community. Your support and patience are greatly appreciated.</p> <p>You can keep abreast of the latest bbPress developments by checking out <a href="https://bbpress.org/blog/">https://bbpress.org/blog/</a> or following the project on Twitter at <a href="https://twitter.com/bbpress">https://twitter.com/bbpress</a> and/or the #bbPress channels on ​<a href="https://chat.wordpress.org">Slack</a>.</p> <p>Finally, check out the mobile-friendly <a href="http://mercime.github.io/bbPress-2015-survey-results/">bbPress 2015 Survey Results page</a> for the complete tally of this survey including comparisons with the results from last year’s survey.</p> <p>Cheers.</p> <p><a href="http://mercime.github.io/bbPress-2015-survey-results/"><img src="https://mercime.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/2015-bbpress-survey.jpg" width="1349" height="908" alt="2015 bbPress Survey Graphs" class="alignnone" /></a></p> text/html 2015-09-09T03:52:00+01:00 http://abetterplanetwp.com A Better Planet Discouraging public redistribution of commercial themes and plugins – poll results http://wpandlegalstuff.com/discouraging-public-redistribution-of-commercial-themes-and-plugins-poll-results/ text/html 2015-08-20T15:53:18+01:00 http://abetterplanetwp.com A Better Planet WordCamp Russia 2015 Recap https://kovshenin.com/2015/wordcamp-russia-2015-recap/ <p>We did it.</p> <p><img src="https://kovshenin-21.cdn.pjtsu.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/5/2015/08/wordcamp-russia-2015.jpg?w=525" alt="WordCamp Russia 2015" width="1024" height="683" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-8193" srcset="https://kovshenin-21.cdn.pjtsu.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/5/2015/08/wordcamp-russia-2015.jpg?w=1050 2x" /></p> <p><a href="https://russia.wordcamp.org/2015/">WordCamp Russia 2015</a> was held last weekend in the amazing Digital October Center in Moscow. Attendance didn&#8217;t change much from last year &#8212; we saw about 200 people in person, but a lot of them (~ 60%) were folks who never attended a WordCamp before.</p> <p>The attendees survey showed great results, pretty much in line with last year and with what we expected overall. The pizza was good, the lounge music was praised, the presentations were terrific.</p> <p>One thing that stood out was a gentleman, who for some reason decided that it was okay to jump up on stage during a presentation, and point out some (supposedly) mistakes that the speaker had made in their code. Awkward. I guess we&#8217;re going to have to hire a bouncer next year.</p> <p>Here are some other things we learned this year:</p> <ul> <li>Some communities don&#8217;t care about Wapuu <a href="https://russia.wordcamp.org/2015/blog/wapuushkin/">and friends</a>, they&#8217;d rather have a t-shirt with a W logo instead</li> <li>If you&#8217;re playing music in the hallway during breaks and lunch, make sure you normalize all the tracks</li> <li>Lights, shooting video and a projector don&#8217;t go well together, luckily inverting some slides helps</li> <li>With two tracks available perhaps it&#8217;s a better idea to split presentations by popularity, rather than just user/dev</li> <li>Launching a screen recording on the presenter&#8217;s laptop during their talk is a great idea, video production goes much faster</li> </ul> <p>Big thanks to the organizing team, all the volunteers, speakers and sponsors who made WordCamp Russia a success!</p> <p><a href="https://kovshenin.com/2015/wordcamp-russia-2015-recap/?utm_source=feed&#038;utm_medium=click_here_to_comment&#038;utm_campaign=feed#comments">Click here to comment</a></p> <h3>More from Konstantin Kovshenin</h3> <ul> <li><a href="https://kovshenin.com/2015/ctf-ota-2015/?utm_source=feed&#038;utm_medium=latest_posts&#038;utm_campaign=feed">Capture the Flag / OTA 2015</a></a></li> <li><a href="https://kovshenin.com/2014/color-options-vs-decisions/?utm_source=feed&#038;utm_medium=latest_posts&#038;utm_campaign=feed">Color Options vs. Decisions in WordPress Themes</a></a></li> <li><a href="https://kovshenin.com/2014/child-themes-import/?utm_source=feed&#038;utm_medium=latest_posts&#038;utm_campaign=feed">An Alternative to @import in WordPress Child Themes</a></a></li> <li><a href="https://kovshenin.com/2014/megafon-moscow-privacy-advertising/?utm_source=feed&#038;utm_medium=latest_posts&#038;utm_campaign=feed">MegaFon Moscow: Privacy &#038; Advertising</a></a></li> <li><a href="https://kovshenin.com/2014/wordcamp-russia-2014/?utm_source=feed&#038;utm_medium=latest_posts&#038;utm_campaign=feed">WordCamp Russia 2014</a></a></li> </ul> text/html 2015-04-14T02:08:24+01:00 http://abetterplanetwp.com A Better Planet Tips for Hosting WordPress on Pantheon https://markjaquith.wordpress.com/2015/04/13/wordpress-on-pantheon/ A text/html 2015-01-07T14:23:01+01:00 http://abetterplanetwp.com A Better Planet Universal Typography with Tim Brown http://build.codepoet.com/2015/01/07/universal-typography-tim-brown/ A text/html http://abetterplanetwp.com A Better Planet How to Install a WordPress Plugin http://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/how-to-install-a-wordpress-plugin--cms-25545
