The in-development default theme for #WordPress 5.6 (Twenty Twenty One) is a definite vibe:
"Running a CDN is expensive, and if you’re not paying for it then you are the product."
Says the man who owns the company responsible for the free Jetpack CDN... 😒 #WordPress
Considering making the switch from Fathom to Plausible after the new version of Fathom's official #WordPress plugin (3.0) dropped support for self-hosted installs.
Given my traffic, I'll be paying a bit more for Plausible. But, honestly, I'd much rather support folks who I feel wouldn't up and pull the rug out from under their users like Fathom has.
Made a simple plugin out of the code that prevents Noto from loading from Google Fonts when using the block editor in #WordPress.
It's up on #SourceHut if you're interested...
How did I do it? Well, the theme (Susty) does a lot of the heavy lifting by itself. Thanks again to @jacklenox for creating it!
Getting rid of the #WordPress plugin Jetpack — I know 😞 — also made a *huge* impact.
I was using Jetpack for contact forms, their CDN, and stats. I have replaced all three pieces of functionality with absolutely nothing.
Why? Well, the contact form only ever brought me junk, I currently have minimal static resources, and possess no urgent desire to track my visitors.
#WordPress 5.4 is still in beta and they're already targeting new features (theme & plugin updates) for 5.5.
"Conservatives within our community often feel like they have no voice. The article and the subsequent discussions taking place on social media help drive home that feeling."
Boo fucking hoo. Conservatives have been working overtime to disenfranchise all sorts of people for decades. Now they don't feel like they have a voice in the #WordPress community and I'm supposed to give a shit?
Well, I don't. 🤷🏻♂️
Jorbin says MAGA hats have no place at WordCamps, and I completely agree.
"There is nothing considerate, respectful, or collaborative about a symbol of hate. A symbol meant to divide."
"We, the WordPress community, wouldn’t be ok with someone walking in to a WordCamp with a swastika, why should we be ok with someone wearing a Make America Great Again hat?"
