So, the other day after I woke up, I caught a glimpse of the calendar and was hit by the sudden realization that it was going to be March in a couple of days… MARCH, of 2015! Where does time go? (*sigh*) Not that I’m complaining, but… no, I’m definitely complaining.

The foundation of the plugin is its extensive role and capability management system. This is the backbone of all the current features and planned future features.

It’s pretty rare to see the inside of a factory farm: Corporate farming interests have tried to make undercover filming illegal in 26 states, and they’ve succeeded in seven of them. That’s why when a farmer from North Carolina invited Fusion to look inside his chicken houses, we jumped at the opportunity.
In an interview published on Friday, Apple CEO Tim Cook reaffirmed his commitment to customer data privacy, saying most consumers likely do not know how dire the situation is, but will be “very offended” when they find out.
Someday someone will write a book about the complexities of website addresses, permalinks, pretty permalinks, nonces, preview links, conditional links, and all of the other linky link links that WordPress uses. Until that authoritative text book is written, you are stuck with my weak explanations. As you move through the various assignments in In Lorelle’s…
WordPress plugin popularity has always been pretty tough to figure out. We only had download counts or independent, third party website scrapers to tell us anything. Now, WordPress.org itself has more data that’s being tested and launched to give us real insight into the popularity of WordPress plugins.
SIDEKICK has announced that its voice-guided WordPress training video plugin now supports WordPress Multisite. According to SIDEKICK Co-founder, Ben Fox, WordPress Multisite has been one of the most requested features from users.
I’ve used WordPress to write about WordPress for more than seven years, it’s how I make a living. Recently though, writing in WordPress feels more like being a data entry specialist. I guess in some ways, it’s not surprising considering that’s exactly what I’m doing.
As I sit here tonight, at a bar, typing on the WordPress app (which will undoubtedly make my fingers cramp typing long form), I’m thinking about my life. What has made me a man, a developer, a friend, and lover (I can even get in Oxford commas on the app!)In exactly five hundred and fifty…
There’s no doubt that animating user interfaces is a rising trend. Risen enough that the emphasis is often put on the animation itself, rather than on improving the user experience through subtle and functional animation. Pasquale D’Silva gave some good advice in his talk at Web Direction South in 2013, including: Good animation is invisible.You shouldn’t notice that you’re looking at animation.
In any business someone needs to steer the ship. As the Co-founder and CEO this is what James does for the WP Ninjas with great joy. Having co-created the increasingly popular Ninja Forms and the first of it’s kind Ninja Demo WordPress plugins, he is always looking for the next innovation or market where the ninjas can have the greatest impact.

After years of creating new content, changing themes, and adding and removing plugins, a WordPress installation can become littered with unused, orphaned, and duplicated data. Not every plugin properly extricates itself and its data from your site when you uninstall. Lester Chan’s new WP Sweep plugin was designed to perform housekeeping on WordPress installations.
You may have checked out our speakers and sessions before, but check again! We’ve added a track of Blogging U. classes to both the Portland and Phoenix events featuring a variety of formats, but all of these sessions are hands-on, not lectures. Some classes are the same in both cities, while others will vary based on who’s…
Behind an iconic haircut was a booming voice that truly was prosperous. But Leonard Nimoy was more than just Spock. Nimoy, who died Friday at age 83, was a mainstay and a legend in the science-fiction world. He was also a musician, a poet and a prominent voice actor.
Making a theme is really exciting. It’s a great way to practice your coding skills. It could be a good way to bring in some extra pocket change. Best yet, seeing someone use something you’ve built is incredibly rewarding. I’ve watched the quality of theme design get better and better in the WordPress.org directory in…
The new design of the WordPress Theme Directory is a welcome change on WordPress.org. Faster browsing and filtering means users can more easily sort through the thousands of available options. While the directory includes many beautiful, high quality themes, it often requires sifting through hundreds to find that diamond in the rough.
What: Let’s chat about Shortcake (Shortcode UI), a proposed feature plugin that’s currently midway through its development cycle. Why: Shortcake is nearing a v0.2.0 release (see all issues). We’d l…
“The illustration below appears to show green and blue spirals….. But in fact the apparent green and blue are exactly the same colour! Don’t believe me?” Check the revelation on Richard Wiseman’s blog .
WordPress filters are used to modify data before being rendered to the browser or saved to the database, and WordPress plugins typically provide filters to modify plugin behavior. Gravity forms is an extremely powerful form plugin that has many filters available.
For some time now, I’ve been a big fan of using WordPress for web application development, but I think that developers actually embracing the CMS (let alone seeing the CMS) as a foundation for something like that is still a couple of years off.
Sometimes, a body gets a hankering that only Leonard Nimoy singing about hobbits while surrounded by 60’s pixie chicks can sate. Fortunately, we live in a world where those hankerings need not go unfulfilled! This was originally filmed in 1967, on a variety show called Malibu U.
Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.

It has happened to all of us at one point or another: You click “update” on your live site’s plugins…and then the screen goes white. You did not touch any code; all you did was click one button! Way to go. You killed your WordPress website.

Last updated on by Editorial Staff Allowing users to register on your WordPress site can open the door for spam user registrations. While you can fight spam user registrations just like comment spam, wouldn’t it be better if you could just moderate user registrations like comments?
I’m intrigued by the creativity of businesses, and the inventive people that run them. I believe in the limitless cleverness of an individual. When tapped through deep, transparent coaching and mentorship, limitless cleverness equals new value to the world.
The new design for the official WordPress Theme Directory is live today. Contributors on the WordPress Meta team released a preview of the design in early January and worked quickly over the past month to resolve any outstanding issues related to the new plugin that powers the directory.
The WordPress admin list tables can get quite lengthy to browse if you’re relying on regular pagination, especially when you need to perform bulk actions. As of WordPress 4.0, the grid view of the media library has beautiful support for infinite scrolling, but list tables for posts and users still rely on old-fashioned pagination.
A lot of the tech news I’ve linked here has been a bit of a downer, but today we can celebrate: FCC votes for net neutrality, a ban on paid fast lanes, and Title II. This is not an outcome I would have bet on a year ago.
Five years ago today, my first patch was accepted to WordPress core. Oh how the time has flown. This last year has been one of my most exciting years as a part of the WordPress contributor community. At the end of September, I was given commit access to WordPress Core.
The previous assignment in Lorelle’s WordPress School covered the visual and text editors in WordPress. In this assignment, I’d like to focus on making paragraphs within both editors. A paragraph in HTML is a container holding contextual content, the written word. The HTML of a paragraph opens and closes with the paragraph tag.
The open internet finally got the protection it deserves from profit-hungry cable companies. The FCC just approved the strongest set of net neutrality rules in this country’s history, punctuating a years-long battle for this future of the internet. However, the war’s not yet over.
Net neutrality has won at the FCC. In a 3-to-2 vote, the Federal Communications Commission today established a new Open Internet Order that implements strict net neutrality rules, including prohibitions on site and app blocking, speed throttling, and paid fast lanes.
The Federal Communications Commission has approved its strongest network neutrality rules yet. Three Democrats, including chairman Tom Wheeler, voted for the rules. The two Republicans dissented. The new rules reclassify internet access so it will be regulated like a public utility. The rules apply to both home broadband connections and the wireless networks that power smartphones.
The Federal Communications Commission today voted to enforce net neutrality rules that prevent Internet providers-including cellular carriers-from blocking or throttling traffic or giving priority to Web services in exchange for payment. Not the end of the world: What Tom Wheeler’s proposal will and won’t do.
