• Internationalizing and localizing block based plugins

    Internationalizing and localizing block based plugins is an important stage in the creation of WordPress blocks that can be used worldwide. Once it’s been internationalized a plugin can be delivered in any locale that WordPress supports; over 200 at the last count.

    In this post I summarize the process I use to automatically perform internationalization ( i18n ), translation and localization ( l10n ) of my block based WordPress plugins from US English to UK English and the bbboing language.

    Using easy to use translation tools, internationalized plugins can be made available in many other languages.

  • My Favourite Theme

    WordPress has supported a Themes System since 2005.

    The first default theme was called Kubrick.

    Since then thousands of themes have been developed. Over 8,500 are available from wordpress.org/themes

    There are many more. Some of them you can buy fairly cheaply. But there are also countless custom themes, developed by individuals and agencies, that provide the look and feel of millions of WordPress sites.

    So which is my favourite?

    These are the slides for the talk.
