  • WordPress 1.5 had Markdown Support

    No foolin. I bet the story here is a fun one.

  • Understanding alloptions in WordPress

    (04/28 UPDATE): I’m now running my first-pass patch right here on my own site. 🚀 WordPress is an extremely flexible piece of software, and it comes with many different settings. Some are made visible to users via Admin > Settings and others are stored invisibly so users aren’t bothered by them, but all of them are saved in…

  • WordCamp Miami and the TR-808

    For most of my life, whenever someone would ask what kind of music I was into, I struggled to come up with a clear and obvious response. I’ve always enjoyed many different artists, songs, and genres, each for a myriad of reasons, and the one style of music that I consider “my favorite” isn’t one…

  • January & February

    January & February were very busy and eventful months for me, as I’ve been working full-time on WordPress Core & Community related endeavors thanks to two companies, and largely 2 individuals, who decided to take a bit of a risk and try something relatively new with me.

An article from The New York Times puts into a nice perspective why I think WordPress is really important to the future of the…

  • 💯∞

    In 2014, Matt Mullenweg challenged the WordPress community to volunteer 5% of their time towards open-source and WordPress.org. A few months later, I ran a successful fundraising compaign that allowed me to donate 6 months worth of time towards BuddyPress & bbPress. For 2017, and hopefully with your help, I’m going to try something a little…

  • A tiny argument against merging the REST API plugin into WordPress core

    Normally I’d start with a history lesson, but for this I’ll cut to the chase since most of you reading this already know what I’m talking about… Projects like Django function & thrive without their REST API in every core installation. Not being in core means the component maintainers are able to develop independently of…
