  • Testing Full Site Editing for WordPress 5.8

    WordPress 5.8 is scheduled to release at the end of July, and one of the most anticipated features is what’s been affectionately referred to as “Full Site Editing.” In reality Full Site Editing (or, FSE) is really a collection of numerous features that together enable someone to edit their entire website using blocks. This is […]

  • A Welcomed Detour

    Took a little detour today and tried to help with some improvements to the media uploader in WordPress, specifically a new button that will let you quickly copy the URL for a file that you just uploaded. This is related to the following WordPress Core issue: Add a copy-link button at the media upload page

  • Testing the Widget Editor for WordPress 5.8

    WordPress 5.8 is scheduled to be released on July 20, 2021 and one of the new features slated for this release is an update to the way widgets work. There’s a “call for testing” up on one of the WordPress community blogs. This post covers my experience running through this test. Its important to note […]

  • A quick guide for building a WordPress block pattern

    As we progress on building a directory for WordPress block patterns, I thought it would be helpful to put together a guide for building patterns. Here’s a first sketch at this guide, which I think can probably live at wordpress.org/patterns/guide: What do you think — does this help, and does it cover the basics? What […]

  • The Possibilities of Full Site Editing

    Here’s a handful of tweets I saw while eating lunch today. The future of WordPress is bright.

    Recently, I’ve noticed the need to move from sidebars, to popovers, to modals. For example, in the WordPress block editor you can add blocks from a small and quick popover called the Quick Library, or from the larger Sidebar Libary. And, there’s been a few designs floating around that use a modal to browse patterns. […]

  • Canvas Width

    I’m working on designs for the brand new Patterns section for WordPress.org. This new section of the site will allow anyone to create and submit patterns — a collection of WordPress blocks — that can be shared and used by any WordPress site. One aspect of build a great pattern is understanding how your design adapts […]

  • Go Marching, a Minimal Photo Theme for WordPress

    I really enjoy taking photos. Not like, professional photos, but off the cuff pictures, usually with my iPhone. I’ve always wanted a theme that did nothing but show my pictures, and maybe a title and description. So I made one. I’m calling it Go Marching, as in “The ants go marching, one by one…” [wpvideo […]

  • The Past Few Weeks

    The blog has been fairly quiet for the past few weeks, and with good reason! I’ve been in “mole mode,” working on a few WordPress plugins with the hope of getting them accepted into Core for the 3.8 release schedule to launch in early December. I’m happy to report that all three plugins have been […]

  • Resize media library thumbnails on the fly.

    Far from perfect, this slider lets you change the size of the thumbnails in the media library. See a bunch of smaller images at once, or zoom in and see bigger images. [wpvideo 7U0xVSKj]
