• Dynamic content block in oik-blocks v0.4.0-beta-20200209

    I’m away on vacation very soon. I’ve taken the opportunity to release another beta version of my oik-blocks plugin with a new block called Dynamic content block ( oik/content-block ).

    This block implements 11 of my dynamic content shortcodes delivered by the oik base plugin, hence the prefix. When it’s ready for production then I’ll deliver the block in oik v4.1.0.

  • oik-clone v2.0.0 – reconciliation with push, pull and import

    What has cloning ever done for us?

    Asked by: Fuzzy Duck, Ducky Fuzz and the other one

    Coming up to five years ago I published my requirements for cloning content between sites. One of the planned enhancements was to support pull cloning. ie. Pulling updated content back from a slave server to the local system, providing the same content cloning functionality as for push cloning, including attachments.

    I’m going on holiday to New Zealand fairly soon. I won’t be taking my laptop. I want to be able to import any changes I make on my websites back to my development machine.

    Back in June 2019, when I first started writing this post, I developed a batch interface to support push, pull and reconciliation. Then I got sidelined with Do Not Clone logic to cater for posts that get cloned both between subdomains and local and slave servers.

    Over the last couple of days, I’ve written a new Slave tab for the oik options > Clone admin page. I think I’ve nearly cracked it. It even seems to work for attachments. I can Import, Pull, Push and Clone content, including re-usable blocks.

    Now I’m going to find out if it really does work. Fingers crossed. I’ve packaged a new version of the plugin as v2.0.0-beta-20200127. I don’t think I need to install the plugin on my servers since the changes apply to my local development. But I might as well.

    Wish me luck! PS. I will be taking backups before I do anything too drastic.

  • Experiences with my Inateck BK2003 keyboard cover

    My Logitech Ultrathin keyboard died a couple of weeks ago. I replaced it with an Inateck BK2003 keyboard cover – UK version. Now I’m using it to edit this post using the WordPress block editor. I’ve copied the original post about my experiences with the Logitech keyboard and am attempting to repeat the tests.

    It’s been an interesting experience learning to use my new Logitech Ultrathin keyboard cover i5 to manage WordPress websites.
