The fully used Editor screen

Now, with that in place I can write really long sentences and they still fit into one line in the editor, and I don’t stop typing until I get to the end of the line and then I can still continue to write and have a total nice writing space on Gutenberg editor. My Toolbar is on top can I don’t see any other blocks etc.

What’s the purpose of a Cover Image Block?

“You can use it for quotes.“– Sunny
You can use it for Shout-outs
You can us it to illustrate a point. 
You can make it a call to action 

Heading 

  1.  ordered list
  2. .

 edit-post-visual-editor .editor-post-title__block,
.edit-post-visual-editor .editor-block-list__block
{
max-width: 1024px;
}

We can just keep on going, and writing, writing, writing until the end of time. It’s all nonsense, but now I can don’t have to scroll so much when I am composing my post. What also doesn’t work any more is the WYSIWYG as my front end is only half the size of my screen, but that doesn’t matter. The text adopts to screen size. 

Testing the more block

Gutenberg in 1439 was the first European to use movable type. Among his many contributions to printing are: the invention of a process for mass-producing movable type; the use of oil-based ink for printing books;[5] adjustable molds;[6] mechanical movable type; and the use of a wooden printing press similar to the agricultural screw presses of the period.[7]

Before you commit to making any change, you need to consider that technology is one piece of the pie. You must also commit to making changes in the processes with which you collect, store, and retrieve information. A primary consideration in all change is the standardization of your processes. If you decide to change your donor management system, you will need to document the change in processes.

Write down a description of what the actual change in process will be. Then write down a description of the current process. We suggest that you include the ‘owner’ of the current process as you go through this. That person will be able to help with the next piece of the pie. All technology and process change involves the people. The owner of a process will know who needs to be trained about how to store and retrieve the new technology and  processes.

This is the alt text.

Testing 4.9 Part I

We use our beta site to test upcoming releases. Next week Tuesday, WordPress will release its version 4.9. Today, I was able to take a couple hours to look over the upcoming changes. 

New plugin update screen

So nice with square icons in the list. Unfortunately, those icons are gone when looking at the plugins list page. Nice touch, though! 

Scheduling changes for publishing in the Customizer

That's a great idea. In the Holidays are  coming up and having a different hero video might make for a nice change. I just heard about a new service called VideoBlocks by StoryBlocks. Goes well with the Guten-Blocks Theme. They have a 7-day free trial.

So, I scheduled the change for November 25, when the header video changes to Happy Holidays.  

Steps to change Header media on a Schedule.

  • Click on Customizer
  • Click on Header Media
  • Paste the YouTube URL into the text field
  • Use the tool wheel next to Publish button, and an additional panel appears.
  • Use Schedule and set the date to publish your changes
  • Click on "Schedule" blue button
  • Underneath Schedule a Preview Links is created you can use to share with your team or customer. 

Testing Core Media Widget Plugin for Galleries

You can download Core Media Widget from the Repository

While the audio, video and single image widget section was already merged into Core with 4.8 – The Gallery widget is slated to be merged into core for the 4.9 release.

If you test it, please report any issues on GitHub

Sarah Gooding tested things and posted an article on WPTavern

We did our own test on this site. I really like it:-) It also shows, that you need to be consistent when uploading images to your library. The Widget displays the caption section for the image underneath the image, and it looks much nicer if you fill out the caption field for all images to be displayed in the Widget.

How to use the Gallery Widget?

  • Got to Appearance > Widget
  • Click on Galllery widget and select the widget section
  • Give the widget a Title
  • Click on “Add Media” to select the respective images from the Media Library
  • Make adjustments to other settings, like column number and type of display
  • Click on “Insert Gallery” button
  • Preview in Gallery Widget admin screen
  • Click on Save

Note: You might see in the video that the desired number of columns is set to 2, however, the display in the widget admin screen shows 3 columns. That is a known issue and already in the issue tracker as #190

 

Consistency is key. Habit forming approach helps with that.

For a while now, I share my links on nonprofit technology with a small group of subscribers. I don't think the field is big enough for a large list. 

The only reason why I still do it, is to keep a schedule: over the course of the day, I come across great information, that would be worth sharing, but I also need to be selective and narrow the long list of things down to four. 

How do I collect links?

  • I use Feedly for my reading
  • Pinboard for my bookmarking. Pinboard allows me to add my comment to each link which helps when putting it together into a newsletter sent out via email.
  • For sending I use Mailchimp RSS Feed Campaigns.

So ShortCodes seem to work. I wonder if the plugin developer has to do anything to make it 'em work again.

Three Kinds of Design

John Maeda talked about the Three Kinds of Design. He used his Design Tech Report 2017 PDF as prompts on screen, which was interesting. You can read his Design Tech Report here. You can also listen to the report via Vimeo.
https://vimeo.com/208035080
Listen to John Maeda explains how WordPress actually produces Computational Designers. It’s in this video close to the end:
https://twitter.com/bph/status/887387184948547584
I particularly was fascinated by Maeda’s remarks about China. Listen to him yourself. Especially how Chinese people use their smarphones.

CSS Grid – Creating Web Layouts the right way! Finally.

CSS Grid is finally here. I had given up on ever getting into the nitty-gritty of Cascading Styles sheets. Our designer-developer is so proficient in it, that I was able to delegate that part since 2006 or so. Wholeheartedly agree with Morten, when he says “Web Layouts are broken. We just refined how we break them.”

Need and example?

Layout files like this are not uncommon. They are almost a badge of honor. Right?
Here is a little excerpt from the slide-deck

For everyone who wants to really dive into the talk and see Morten go to all of his 106 slides, watch it on WordPress.TV

Well worth your time! 

Cathedral and Bazaar

How do we build Community? Like we build open-source. Eric Raymond, wrote about his time at Linux – the open-source operating system, in his book Cathedral and Bazaar.
  1. With many eyes, all bugs are shallow.
  2. Release early, release often.
  3. Scratching a personal itch
  4. Egoless participation.

Five Good Faith Rules

  1. The group is for the benefit of the community, not specific businesses or individuals. (egoless participation)
  2. Membership is open to anyone. (many eyes, and also modeling that open bazaar concept)
  3. Everything is volunteer-based; speakers or organizers are not paid. (egoless participation)
  4. Anyone can organize an event. (many eyes, release early/often, “personal itch,” egoless participation, and also the open bazaar.)
  5. The community works together to make a welcoming environment, and discriminatory behavior is not accepted. (many eyes)
