Earlier today I published a general survey asking question about how you (yes, you!) use widgets in WordPress. I’d love it if you could take a few minutes and fill out the survey. Thanks!
I’ve been working on some design concepts for a redesign of widgets in WordPress, hopefully for release in 3.8 towards the end of this year. The latest concept I’ve been thinking about is a vertically tabbed UI for listing sidebars and widgets.
Look at this, another plugin! Menu Recent Pages will add a list of recently edited pages to you wp-admin menu. They appear as a sub-menu of Pages, and will take you to the edit screen when clicked. Simple.
Another day, another plugin. This morning I whipped up a concept-plugin for a smaller admin bar. I’m calling it (creatively) Mini Admin Bar. This isn’t for the faint of heart, as Its pretty broken right now; No drop-downs work, and it breaks miserably with Jetpack enabled. However, if your brave (and have MP6 activated) check it out.
WordPress 3.6 “Oscar” is a great release, which marks the move into a more aggressive release schedule with both 3.7 and 3.8 due to arrive this year.
You can regrow scallions! I just threw some away last week. Too bad I didn’t see this earlier; I could be cooking with some fresh scallions tonight!
I’ll be trying this recipe for focaccia bread this week. I’ll report back my findings.
Maps evolve. So do we. Like Google Maps, but from Nokia? Cool, I guess. Also, the branding screams “Facebook!”
Jetpack 2.0 was just released. Lots of cool new things, including the ability to cross-post to Facebook and Twitter. Photon, a CDN of sorts for your site’s photos, is brand-spanking new — and something to keep an eye on.
