WordPress.org launched a new design for the Theme Directory just over a month ago and the meta team has continued to fix bugs and add enhancements. Preliminary stats and feedback indicate that the directory improvements have had a positive impact on users’ ability to hunt for themes.
If you’ve attended a WordCamp, you might be familiar with the term Happiness Bar. It’s an area within a WordCamp venue devoted to providing technical support for WordPress. Morten Rand-Hendriksen thinks it’s time to change the name to something more obvious.
Over the past few months HHVM has taken the PHP community by storm. Since WordPress 3.9 was released, HHVM is now 100% compatible with WordPress. Unfortunately, HHVM is not quite ready for use in production in self-hosted environments. In my experience, HHVM crashes about once per day, which makes it not viable for a site where high availability is important.

On the whiskey recommendations site DrinkDistiller.com, users can choose up to 5 bottles of whiskey to feature and reorder on their Top Shelf.

Automattic has a beautiful lounge at Hawthorne, but with its 300+ employees working remotely from home, how do you show what people are doing?

The new California law in place giving Yelp permission to manipulate business ratings for money has a lot of people pissed. Some restaurants are fighting back, like San Francisco Italian restaurant Botto Bistro, who are now aiming for the lowest Yelp rating in the Bay Area.

WordPress is a fine platform for building websites for schools. And, you have lots of options.

On February 26, 2015, Google announced a major change to it’s algorithm that will roll out starting April 21, 2015 where “mobile-friendliness” will be expanded as a ranking signal in searches.

WP 4.2 will include a number of improvements in the way query classes handle ‘orderby’, particularly when used in connection with the ‘meta_query’ parameter. WP_Query has long supported the sorting of results by postmeta, using the following syntaxes: $q1 = new WP_Query( array( ‘meta_key’ => ‘foo’, ‘orderby’ => ‘meta_value’, ) ); $q2 = new WP_Query( array( ‘meta_key’ => ‘foo’, ‘orderby’ => ‘foo’, ) ); These arguments have always operated more or less independently from ‘meta_query’.
Probably the single best thing to happen to me in my career was having had Kellan placed in charge of me. I stuck around long enough to see Kellan’s technical decisionmaking start to bear fruit. I learned a great deal from this, but I also learned a great deal as a result of this.
tldr: The “Happiness Bar” needs a new name. I’ll start the brain storming here: I’ve been a volunteer at the Happiness Bar of close to 10 WordCamps in the last 5 years. The experience of interacting with and helping others working with WordPress has been educational, entertaining, and often enlightening.
WordPress is a great solution for creating directory websites. Contrary to popular belief, directory sites can be delivered in more flavors than just a Yelp knock-off. A lot of the agency work we produce is focused around displaying content across a website or intranet for content publishers.
Do you realize we spend more time talking about the web then understanding how the main tool we use to access the web works? I think we take the web browser for granted. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to watch all those YouTube videos. You wouldn’t be able to let the world know what…

Sometimes you have one of those conversations that’s so full of new ideas, it pinballs around your head for days. ‘Bout a week back I was interviewing a smart dude at a Beijing-based mobile game localization company.
On Saturday 21st March, I spoke at WordCamp London about building themes with the upcoming, core WordPress REST API (WP-API). I was overwhelmed by the popularity of the talk. I think there were over 200 people crammed into the room, and many more ended up getting turned away.
My wife and I bought an ottoman seven years ago; it was upholstered in some sort of faux leather that was immediately torn by the vacuum cleaner. Over the years, the top began to crack, and more tears appeared on the sides.
Here at WebDevStudios, we try to use CMB2 for pretty much anything form or field related. We do this for several reasons: It saves us time. It’s a framework that handles a lot of the nitty-gritty for us (creating markup, handling sanitizing, escaping and saving data, etc). It provides a lot of power.
Dear Christians In Indiana (and those elsewhere, who might read this), I’ve seen what’s been going on there lately. Actually, I’ve been watching you all along and I really need to let you know something, just in case you misunderstand: This isn’t what I had planned.
I know what you’re hoping this is about. But we’re actually talking about sleep this week. And seriously, sleeping is the best. Odds are you’re not doing enough of it, and that’s hurting you beyond the fact that it’s just a fantastic thing to do.
