So this is kinda neat. I added a tiny little widget to my WordPress dashboard that allows me to speed up the process of publishing microposts (tweets) on my site.

Any tips on how to connect a WordPress form to Google Sheets without a 3rd party premium service?

I have a form that is rarely used by people (usually older folks) who want marketing mailed to them instead of email. The best way to do this is to have a form where they input their mailing info and have it connect to a Google spreadsheet.

Unless there's a better solution?

I don't want to have another annual plugin subscription to do this.

- if you're blind and want to go back to 90s technology, use editor's "move block" upwards or downwards key combination. ctrl-alt-shift-t for up, ctrl-alt-shift-y for down, well, screen reader won't tell you the block has been moved and you'll relive the 90s experience when you had to count button pressures to learn a remote control or cd player's usage. Moving block from toolbar is correctly notified instead. Hope it's fixed soon!

This post explores how I’m tackling the support system around Siren, and how I think it’s going to stand out as top-tier support. I also add some hot-takes on how much I hate onboarding flows😅.

Messed around and made myself a plugin to help me make it easy for me to create 600x600 featured thumbnails for categories and tags. - very satisfying to scratch this itch.

Cancelled my plan today. Started using it during a lull in self-hosting.

Not intending to self-host Wordpress though - are there any good tools to convert Wordpress exports into something usable? I'm considering running a static blog off markup or something.

für installiert, Blog-Profil @blog (nicht Autor!) aktiviert, in Mastodon gesucht, gefunden und gefolgt. Folgeanfrage taucht aber in WordPress nicht auf.

Beim Autoren-Profil ist es übrigens genau so.

Aber warum nicht?

I'm looking into integrating something that can help me capture aggregate, and anonymous error monitoring using Sentry for a distributed WordPress plugin. Obviously this would be opt-in.

Is there someone out there who has actually done this who I can chat with? Looking for some insight on things to look out for, how to approach it, etc.

I point to this post also for the community who should also have been asking the same question for a number of years even before COVID.

The last couple of months I’ve had numerous discussions on this topic with longtime developers in the community. Those leaving the community for whatever reason or one thing, but not focus on whose entering.

Next time you go to a WordCamp look around and see how many people are there under the age of 25 not with parents.

A related question:

I just noticed that stuff on my blog (which was hosted on URLold and now is hosted on URLnew) still points to URLold.

A quick inspection has shown that this is not a cache issue. When I look into the database, I can see that Wordpress introduced hard links for images like URLold/path/to/whatever/foto.jpg and similar stuff for other content.

The probably dumbest solution would be to replace all appearances of URLold with URLnew using sed or just an editor but ... there must be a better way? They cannot make their users edit the data base when the site migrates from URLold to URLnew. Right?

I need to think a bit about onboarding with Siren. Right now, it kinda just installs the plugin without any context. I don't want to do a full-blown wizard before launch, but maybe a single "getting started" screen would be useful. Hmm.

My advice about backend development:

Database operations are generally cheaper and quicker than doing things in-app.

The people who made your relational database system have probably already figured out an optimisation for whatever it is that you're attempting to do.

example: If you need to do something like fetching 20 different currency rates from a 3rd party for a plugin that needs to convert them, but only realistically need to convert between two of those, just use a wp_options key like 'myplugin_currency_rate_' . strtolower( $currency ) for each currency's base rate instead of mucking about with using a serialised array of every single currency and then iterating through that.

I sat in with Matt Medeiros’ WP Minute+ Podcast, where we talked about Siren, and how you can use it to create an affiliate program for more-complex, and expensive service-based companies.

🤔 Is there a way to embed a #Peertube player into #Wordpress similar to a Youtube player? In terms of auto-adjusting the width of the player to the screen size etc.?

Looks like CSS-fiddling .. 🤔

Current plan:

  • Build a replica of my website using .

  • Add an e-commerce section on top of it using WooCommerce.

  • Build an e-commerce section for my music on my current Jekyll website, using .

Then I'll decide which one's best, and potentially move on from Bandcamp. I'm not going to leave the platform, however I want to act on the principle of
