Jan, this looks interesting. I am intrigued in an. I fear that I am going to hit a wall at some point if or when the classic plugin is no longer supported. I like what it does, but agree with your concern about it being outside of the post. One of the things that I am coming to realise though is that unless I were to roll out my own solution (which seems well beyond me) that I am always at the whim of somebody else’s design principles.
Are you encountering one of these common WordPress errors. Learn how to fix some of the most most common WordPress errors (Step by Step Beginners Guide).
I had a few errors on my sites recently. replacing the core files via FTP.and Subscribe To Comments plugins were causing issues on Collect, while I was unable to login to my Read Write Respond site. After logging a ticket with , I was pointed to a guide for
For me, it really highlighted how much I take for granted that everything just works. It has me thinking about improving my backup process. Was also interesting reading Wouter Groeneveld’s reflection on whether we should all have our own Wayback Machine.
WordPress adds its own styles to make it easier for theme development. This is a cheat sheet of default WordPress generated CSS.
Meredith Fierro shares a number of strategies for troubleshooting slow sites. This included P3 Profiler for problem solving and W3 Total Cache for caching.
I’m glad I am not the only one Oliver. I have built some many workflows, whether it be custom HTML buttons and my use of Quotebacks. Yes, I could do this with blocks, but I don’t need to.
As Sarah mentioned on Twitter the other day, if there’s an organized (open source) effort to provide a world-class writing experience in WordPress, I would absolutely invest my time.
This seem so promising Frank and Drummer with intrigue, read Amit Gawande’s breakdown, but wondered where it fits with my current practices. I was intrigued by the connection with Micro Blogs. However, it was not until your post sharing the ability to connect with WordPress that I started to properly think about how I might use Drummer. I can imagine using it for ‘micro’ posts, but as you touch on, I am still unsure how this fits into with things like Post Kinds etc.. I have followed
I guess I will have to start playing.
John, that is good news.
One of the interesting aspects to having two sites is running two different setups. I still use the Classic Editor Plugin for my Collect blog and have started tinkering with Gutenberg in my main blog. I find blocks really cumbersome and appreciate Tony Hirst’s sentiments. I actually often carve out my posts in my Collect blog and copy the contents across, but the translation to blocks can be rather frustrating. On top of that, I am not sure where it leaves Post Kinds, which I guess is the point Ton Zijlstra is trying to make.

Even today, there are still many people that want to print out the entire internet. This can have many reasons. Maybe a team seeks to discuss an article’s content in a meeting. Or maybe somebody wants to read your article somewhere where they don’t have an internet connection. To satisfy these people, each website requires a CSS file for printing.
Andreas Hecht discusses how to add a CSS stylesheet for printing posts.

Thank you for sharing this Alan. It is another example of why wide reading is helpful. I have been tinkering with different ways of searching my site for a while. I know that I could use Google Custom Search and a raft of other methods, however I wanted to avoid all that. Therefore, I still use the good old www.example.com/?s= method, with some extra code to expand the search. What your bookmarklet now allows me to do is easily search from anywhere without opening the site first or going to ‘search’, although I removed the
index.phpand replaced this with
In regards to itches, I would still like the ability to search for content associated with particular tags, this is what happens when you start using WordPress as a commonplace book. That this granny is happy enough for now.

I am all in on this Chris, but I just can’t seem to get it to work. I created the bookmarklet, highlighted the name and clicked the bookmarklet, but there was no pop-up. I must admit, I do not use many bookmarklets, only Alan Levine’s really. I may therefore have to dig into this a bit further as it is probably me.
Definitions of words that you come in contact with when you use WordPress.
Okay, so four years after I wrote how to start Converting Your WordPress Theme for Microformats 2, I’m back with Part 2.
First, four years later, we need to recap, update, and expand what we discussed last time.
I really enjoyed this breakdown Glenn and imagine a lot could be done using CSV upload.
Some interesting changes to WordPress functions.
Thank you for the tip Chris. Jeff’s guide is really useful in extended the possibilities of . Personally, I have been thinking about the possibilities of creating an alternative feed for Micro.Blog without the heading.
page-now.phptemplate for the / now page is automatically drawn via the file name and no further work is actually necessary, but if the page should be accessible under a different slug (for whatever reason), you can also use the template for the
/** Template Name: "/now" Template */header for make any page available.
Another alternative would be
post_classto expand, but a dedicated template simply offers more options. A nice example is Dominik Schwinds https://lostfocus.de/now/ , which he updates via the category “nownownow”.
