Web development can be a tough process. Understandably, if it isn’t your strength or interest there are some misconceptions or misunderstandings that come into the process of having a website developed. What makes it even more difficult is that the website development industry has a lot of people who provide poor service and even poorer quality websites.

Jim Edwards / BI I’ve spent half my life in the US and half of it in the UK, so I’m used to both countries’ healthcare systems. I recently returned to London after 20 years in America, and after a few doctors’ appointments I’ve come to see the NHS through American eyes.

As the US debates drug policy reforms and marijuana legalization, there’s one aspect of the war on drugs that remains perplexingly contradictory: some of the most dangerous drugs in the US are legal. Don’t believe it?
In keeping with a previous post I’d made a couple months ago explaining the oft-discussed rationale of why we do things the way we do with Jetpack, I’ll be doing it again today, on a different — but related — topic. I may as well make a series of it.
At Pressnomics last week, Matt Mullenweg suggested that the success of WordPress was linked to the Jetpack plugin. It caused a stir in the room and several folks have been talking about it this past week. I thought I would give my take here.
Earlier this month, I described how the features as plugins first model is a mess. Drew Jaynes, who is leading the development cycle for WordPress 4.2, is already making headway into improving the model. Unlike previous release cycles, feature plugins that are likely to be merged into WordPress have been assigned a core mentor at the beginning of the cycle.
One neat “feature” introduced in WordPress 4.1 was the removal of the background and header admin screens in favor of the customizer ( see ticket). Now if you click to customize one of those items, it links directly to the customizer and opens the appropriate panel.
Online community building is like gardening. Whether you’re running an active blog, moderating forums, or managing a social network, you will encounter challenges in maintaining growth. Experienced community builders have a wealth of knowledge to share with those who are new to it, especially when it comes to recognizing and mitigating toxic elements, fertilizing to encourage growth, and responding to community changes.
At the 2014 State of the Word, Matt Mullenweg, founder of the WordPress project, pointed out that 7,539, or 25%, of 33k survey respondents indicated that they make their living off of WordPress. There’s an obvious need for educational resources within the WordPress ecosystem – there are currently blogs, books, videos, and entire business models focused solely on WordPress education.

Back in college, I attended a total of one career fair. I wandered around a room full of company reps standing behind tables and passing out glossy marketing materials, picked up a few business cards and pamphlets, and never gave them a second glance. I remember thinking the whole thing was a wasted opportunity.

Restaurant themes don’t often land in the WordPress Themes Directory. In fact, there are barely a dozen listed among the 3,000+ themes on WordPress.org. One problem with many commercial restaurant themes is that they are usually marketed as a complete package with everything built into the theme, including menu management.

WordPress plugin authors have a great deal of liberty when it comes to structuring and organizing their code. There’s no prescribed file structure, so when you look under the hood of a plugin, you often need to poke around a bit to find out how the author is organizing things.

As part of its 2015 Broadband Progress Report, the Federal Communications Commission has voted to change the definition of broadband by raising the minimum download speeds needed from 4Mbps to 25Mbps, and the minimum upload speed from 1Mbps to 3Mbps, which effectively triples the number of US households without broadband access.
