Last week sometime, I received a distressing Twitter DM from Chris Coyier (of CSS Tricks fame) – he noticed that the markdown in the CSS Tricks forums started behaving badly, and the shim they put in place seemed to have finally gave way… given way… erm… it stopped working, mostly.
I was on vacation with my wife Keri in Key West at the time, but she was patient and wonderful enough to allow me to – completely guilt free – write a quick plugin to help Chris and his users out. She’s great, FYI.
The problem, was that bbPress has it’s own backtick support for wrapping code in
<code> tags, and that was conflicting with Jetpack’s Markdown processing (which is actually pretty cool, and looks to be a direct port of what was on WordPress.com all those years ago.)
Anyways, Chris was kind enough to write some really thoughtful words over on CSS Tricks (and share my latest WordPress experiment Plugins Loaded) and since I am suddenly a content marketer, I’m sharing Chris’s post here:
Found this in /r/Metroid. I’ll circle back to attribute the author if I find them.
I guess it’s probably not technically a Voxel piece, but the 3D angle popularized by Monument Valley is a technique I still really enjoy.
Just pushed out the first episode of a new, somewhat experimental, maybe-a-bit meta, podcast idea. Give it a listen, and let me know what you think!

Had forgotten I’d ordered this, and now I’m really excited for it to ship next week. The artwork was so over-the-top for what the games were, I think there’s a lesson to be learned about packaging & marketing – that it’s not always about building the product of your dreams, it’S getting people dreaming about your product.

The WP Chosen plugin tames the power of WordPress’s filters, settings, and options with the simplicity and versatility of the Chosen jQuery library.
I took some time to think about the recent passing of an old friend, and concluded the way to celebrate his life (and contributions to mine) was to build and open-source something I’ve wanted for a while, the way I think he would have.
BuddyPress 2.3.0 “Livio” was released today, and with it comes the foundation of one of BuddyPress’s most requested features – Attachments. I’ll spare you the the details for now, but an enormous amount of effort went into this. We’ve created something that can reliably extend into each of the other components in future releases, while making sure not to scoff in the face of third-party solutions that have been developed through the years.
We already switched all existing avatar functionality over to using it, and there are already plans to finally introduce blog avatars & favicon support for multisite installations, alongside improvements to WordPress in this area.
Check out WPTavern’s post for more, as well as our own release post on the BuddyPress.org blog.
Thank you to the BuddyPress core team for making the 2.3.0 release our smoothest one ever. Everyone stepped up to help with our change log, the blog & forum posts, tweets and retweets (were in a boat?), and helped test the Zip file to ensure it was packaged correctly. In the past, one or two of us frantically did all of this through-out the day, and having all-hands on deck went a long way towards a smooth release for everyone.
Thank you, also, to my IndieGogo campaign supporters from December 2014. You helped me focus completely on my second full-time major (and eighth minor) BuddyPress release, and I look forward to fitting one more in for all of you. (I had originally budgeted to work through the end of June, but 6 months of clean living and vitamin pills will enable me to work through most of the 2.4.0 release cycle also.) <3
