According to the Twitter and WordPress developers this is the response regarding the XML Vs JSON ‘match’.
After the announcement that the Twitter v1.1 API will only support JSON as the response format, I read today that one of ideas for the WP GSoC2013 proposals is the rewriting of the importer/exporter plugins to use JSON instead of XML for a ‘for a leaner, less error-prone experience‘.
As a lover of tumblogs, of the new features that will be introduced in the next major release of WordPress, Post Formats is one of my favorites. Although post formats were already previously shipped, with the upcoming 3.6 version there is a full UI in the post editor page and their usage has been normalized, with an API to retrieve the relative structured informations ‘attached’ to the post.
I wanted to try them on the road right now, so I decided to upgrade the WP installation
running behind this site to the available beta. At first I tried with the Beta Tester plugin,
but after some trouble and to have more control I made the switch with the good ol’ git.
As it can be seen on the home, I’ve already published some posts with the link and quote formats and now I am working on the post formats API and the implementation (design/markup,…) of the various formats.
Twitter is going to change the way developers access their data with the next iteration of their API, the 1.1 version. This could cause some trouble to the Twitter plugins installed on a WordPress site.
For the Jetpack users, the latest releases introduce a new widget, Twitter Timeline, beside the old one. It is based on the widgets provided by Twitter, so you first will have to create a new one on your twitter account. Then just copy its id and paste it in the Jetpack widget configuration.
The old Jetpack widget won’t display tweets after API retirement.
Then there’s “imposter syndrome.” When women are complimented on their skills, many immediately think to themselves, “I’m not that great.” Most guys accept the compliment and believe it.
It was also noted at the summit discussion that many women don’t think they’re smart enough and feel like outsiders despite the incredible work they do, and some women who work in development tell people they’re not a developer.
This is an old article that Italian Web Design, an italian web design&development community, published some time ago.
It is about a customization of one of the default themes bundled with WordPress, the Twenty Eleven theme. More precisely, the article explains how I implemented the blog post date clip on an previous version of this site, respecting the ‘responsivity‘ of the Twenty Eleven theme:
Say hello to mg-wp-delete-options, the last WordPress plugin I developed.
It enables a backend user to quickly access the ‘hidden’ WP options page(
wp-admin/options.php) with a link on the admin bar and to easily delete with Ajax the unwanted option entries from the
wp_option database table. So, it is a tool mainly targeted to developers and administrators.
It is available on my GitHub account.
Ok, I am back. I hope to be able to repost previous content soon.
