Pour ma première participation à WordCamp Paris, j’ai décidé de parler d’un sujet qui me tient à coeur : Jetpack !
Voici donc ma présentation : en attendant que la vidéo soit mise en ligne, vous pouvez parcourir mes notes ci-dessous, jeter un coup d’oeil à mon diaporama, tout en écoutant mes commentaires dans la vidéo au bas de cet article.
It’s that time of the year again. Starting today and until January 4th, the Jetpack plugin will add an option at the bottom of the General settings screen in your dashboard. Turn that option on, and snow will fall on your blog ❆ !
Of course, like with all Jetpack features, we’ve added some filters allowing you to extend or customize it. Here is all you need to know about Holiday Snow in Jetpack.
Back in September, I got the chance to travel to India for a few days. I was invited to speak at WordCamp Pune, and had a few days to discover a part of the Indian WordPress community, meet wonderful people, chat about Jetpack, and share my experiences as a Happiness Engineer at Automattic.
About a year ago I released a small plugin named Color Posts. It’s a fairly simple plugin, and it can be extended with filters. I use it on this site, and I’ve made extensive use of the filters to add some color to the sidebar as well as in other areas of the site.
Among all these customizations, there is one that I really like: if you use Chrome in Android, the browser’s background color matches the color picked by my plugin:
I thought this little detail could be useful for everyone, so added it to the plugin itself! If you use Color Posts, go update now! 😊
Another month, another #wpbudapest meetup! If you live in Budapest and like WordPress, you should join us next time!
This month, we talked about security and I volunteered to give a talk to outline some basic WordPress security principles. You’ll find my slides below, as well as an outline of my talk with some links, and a small screencast of me going through my talk. Our meetup location is quite dark so I opted to record myself at home instead; it’s a good way to practice! :)
A few months ago, I set to learn more about the differences between Jetpack’s REST API and the WP REST API plugin. Both projects are very interesting for the future of WordPress, as they allow third-party apps and services to interact with WordPress.
I’ve been meaning to play with CloudFlare’s free SSL options for a while, and I finally got around to give it a try. It took me a little while to get to a point where everything worked properly, but I think I finally figured everything out!
If you want to use CloudFlare’s free Flexible SSL on your WordPress site, here are some instructions that could help you!
They are also customizable; we added a lot of filters to allow you to customize the output of the Related Posts. You can find a lot of examples here: Customize Related Posts (Kudos to Xiao for all the great work he’s done with Jetpack Related Posts).
The module also includes an option to “use a large and visually striking layout”. When that option is active, Jetpack will look for a large image (at least 350*200px) in your posts, and use that image when displaying Related Posts. It looks great, and I use it on this site:
What doesn’t look that good, however, is when some of the Related Posts don’t have any image.
