The most emotional moment of the Democratic National Convention was the speech by Khizr Khan, the bereaved father of Army Captain Humayun Khan. With his wife Ghazala by his side, Khan recalled his son’s character, his faith, his patriotism – and, ultimately, his courageous death in the service of the country he loved, and the fellow soldiers he was protecting.

Today, a federal court struck down North Carolina’s voter ID law, one of the strictest in the nation. In addition to requiring residents to show identification before they can cast a ballot, the law also eliminated same-day voter registration, eliminated seven days of early voting and put an end to out-of-precinct voting.
One of the things I love about WordPress is the easiness to empower it with (almost) endless features thanks to plugins. With 38000+ free plugins and an uncountable number of premium and custom ones, there’s a WordPress plugin for every need and budget.
He walked onto the convention stage Thursday night with his wife beside him, the Constitution to guide him and the pride of a father who knows he has a story to tell. “Tonight,” said Khizr M. Khan, “we are honored to stand here as the parents of Capt.
In an effort to fully embrace internationalization in the WordPress community, I launched a campaign this morning called Translate Me. See, I released a new plugin this week, Support Me, which aims to drastically simplify the process of creating – and later removing – temporary user accounts for support purposes.
I recently saw this loader on CodePen, a pure CSS 3D rotating set of bars with a fading reflection. It’s done by using an element for each bar, then duplicating each and every one of these elements to create the reflection and finally adding a gradient cover to create the fading effect.

If you think you have a book in you, you need not try to land Ari Gold as your literary agent and have him go to bat lining up interviews with publishers that might amount in a traditional book deal, nor do we recommend you slog away for years on end to polish off that perfectly packaged manuscript of prose.

People share passwords all the time. A husband might give his wife his bank account login so she can pay a bill. A professor might ask a secretary to check emails. Comedian Samantha Bee’s segment on Syrian refugees featured her teaching them essential phrases in U.S.
Did you year about the guy who said goodbye to OO? Oh no. Not another one. What did he say? He described all the promises of OO, and how none of them had really been delivered, and that all the features of OO cost more than they were worth, and that functional programming was better and…
In Episode 2, Matt and I talk about our roles, responsibilities and relationships, including how we got here and what makes it unique, special and successful. We intended for these episodes to be around 15-25 minutes and this one took all of 25 minutes (and we have more to share).
Maintaining a blog takes more than just writing a bunch of blog posts. You should develop a strategy and planning for your content (especially if you are writing with multiple authors). Also, you should interact with your audience and respond to their comments.
I’m working on a book about remote work and I’m looking for people who work remotely to interview for it. The book is based on my experiences of working remotely but I’d like to include more varied viewpoints than my own.
In this fast-paced business world, female leaders need to make sure they’re not perceived as pushy, aggressive or competent. One way to do that is to alter your leadership style to account for the (sometimes) fragile male ego. Should men accept powerful women and not feel threatened by them? Yes.
The first annual WP Campus was focused on WordPress in higher education, but also showed off the power of digital communities, and the growth of the WordPress platform as a whole.
Tuesday night (July 26), Bill Clinton, the husband of presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, took the stage at the Democratic National Convention to honor his wife’s historic achievement. Bill’s stately-but-approachable appearance and middle-of-the-road fashion choices make him a terrific candidate for the supporting role of first spouse of the United States.
WordPress professionals have demonstrated a decent appetite when it comes to listening to and supporting podcasts on a wide variety of topics, including industry news, development, e-commerce, marketing, and startups.

The release candidate for WordPress 4.6 is now available. We’ve made a few refinements since releasing Beta 4 a week ago. RC means we think we’re done, but with millions of users and thousands of plugins and themes, it’s possible we’ve missed something.
I posted a graph of new WordPress contributors per release and Brian Krogsgard had some questions that I decided to look into. Mostly he wanted to know how well WordPress did at maintaining contributors. So I made some more graphs. In general, past contributions as a predictor of future contributions are pretty consistent across releases.
Automatticians, the people who build WordPress.com, participate in events and projects around the world every day. Periodically, they report back on the exciting things they do in the community. This week, we share our experience at the Podcast Movement 2016 conference. People use WordPress.com to share many types of stories, from written essays and photo galleries to podcasts.
In an increasingly automated world, the art of voice to voice customer service has been lost. The frustration and desire to interact with a real person is more acute than ever. And yet, some companies-including ours-only offer support via ticketing system, rather than over the phone.

Earlier this year, the WordPress plugin directory review team reminded developers that frameworks are not allowed in the directory. WordPress core doesn’t have a built-in way to support plugin dependencies which creates extra hassle for users. Seeing an opportunity, Vova Feldman, founder of Freemius, created IncludeWP, a directory specifically catered to listing WordPress theme and plugin frameworks.
A step-by-step guide to adding a grid of photos to your homepage with the Genesis Framework.
Sales copy, web copy, de-jargonized annual reports, useful blog posts, engaging email newsletters, podcast scripts, ghost-written business books … when it comes to content that writers are paid money for these days, the list is long. But is no one knocking down your door asking for your expertise?
As I mentioned in my WordCamp Europe talk: Just like WordPress has plugins, the future of WP-CLI is packages of commands. For this future, I’m trying to proactively solve the problems WordPress has with plugins: Where WordPress plugins are considered second-class to what’s included in core, I’d like WP-CLI packages to be considered first-class citizens amongst the commands in WP-CLI.
Written content, like the paragraph you’re currently reading. makes up for more than 90% of the Web. Styling this textual content will go a long way.
I dislike lists from the bottom of my heart. I have “never” even made a shopping list. And here I am listing WordPress Theme Shops. You might wonder why? Well, from time to time people don’t like my themes (go figure why) and they ask where else they could find good and solid themes.

Now that the Democratic Party has officially nominated Clinton, I suppose we can talk about voting in November. There are two moral approaches you can take. You can look at the consequences of your vote and act accordingly. Or you can follow a kind of virtue ethics and do what is abstractly right, regardless of the consequences.
I can still remember one of the first times I sold enterprise software to an enterprise client. They were a very large and well-known financial organization and I was sitting in a meeting with their senior technical staff. I was young and nervous at the meeting until I asked a question and heard the answer.
For the record, I have ZERO investments in Russia.
