I faced an interesting challenge last week: I wanted to add subtitles to a video I had inserted in a page with WordPress’ Core Video Shortcode, but I couldn’t find any shortcode parameter allowing me to specify a subtitle file.
I checked the shortcode’s source code but couldn’t find any “subtitle” attribute there. The Codex page wasn’t helpful either. After more digging, I realized that the whole thing was in fact super easy!
Last month, I started my first 30-day challenge: I didn’t drink any alcohol for 30 days. In December, I’ll get rid of Twitter.
Before I tell you more about Twitter, I should probably tell you how that month without alcohol went. 🙂
A little while ago, I shared my mother’s Waffles recipe. Since you all seemed to like it, I’ll digitize another old recipe today. My grandmother (better known as “Mamie du Tertre” 🙂) used to make a great apple cake for us almost every Wednesday. It was simple, not fancy, yet super delicious. Here is her recipe.
New week, new plugin! 🙂
This is once again a Jetpack add-on, and it’s also another good example of the things you can accomplish with the WordPress.com REST API: Post Views for Jetpack pulls data about your site’s stats, as well as stats for each one of your posts.
This is still a work in progress; I would love to know what you’d like in this plugin, and where you would like to display those post views. Open a new thread in the support forums to let me know!
A mix of styles and instruments, and some serious skills!
It was really hard to pick a single song, so I’d really recommend the whole YouTube channel!
If you only have time for one song, let it be that one:
If you follow WordPress news, you’ve probably heard about the REST API already. We’ve been talking about it for years, and it’s been presented as a revolution within WordPress. That’s all great, but what does it mean in practice?
The past few weeks have been interesting. WordPress 4.7 is coming up, and everyone is talking about the WP REST API.
I took that opportunity to look at one of my plugins, REST API Post Embeds, and make sure it was compatible with the upcoming WordPress 4.7. It turns out it wasn’t!
I watch TV. A lot. Fall is a always a nice time of the year for TV addicts like me because we get to discover new TV shows! Here is what we’re watching this Fall.
Leonard Cohen was a legend. He was an influential songwriter, and Hallelujah was one of his most popular songs. I really like Jeff Buckley’s interpretation. It will always be one of my favorite songs. I like so much we played it at our wedding ceremony. 🙂
So here it is. Enjoy.
I’m very careful with the things I install on my computer, and the extensions I used in Google Chrome, my browser of choice.
asgds_modal ID. That’s pretty bad. 😔
If you use that extension, you’ll want to deactivate it right now!
I’m now back to using the Network tab of the Developer tools for that kind of work, unless some of you know of a good extension I could use?
