  • 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?

  • Now what’s going on?

    Something went wrong with my previous post so I tried to reproduce it. Before I was able to debug it properly the problem went away.

  • Show and tell – What’s going on?

    Yesterday, the Cheltenham WordPress Meetup was a series of Show and Tell talks. Along the lines of Lightning talks, these are talks of approximately 10 minutes, where individuals share something they’ve been working on. There were 7 talks planned:

    1. Richard Bell @Rich Bell demoed Ray and Background WordPress processing, 
    2. Mark Wilkinson @wpmark demoed his Just In Time CSS,
    3. Elliott Richmond @erichmond showed us how to run Xdebug using Visual Code Studio, setting breakpoints, watching variables and changing values on the fly, 
    4. Ross Wintle @magicroundabout demoed his new CSS and PHP based spam pixel plugin to block spam bots
    5. Keith Devon @keithdevon showed us his work on CSS grid for block based themes
    6. We ran out of time before @Jonnyauk had a chance to show his latest work with template parts ( PHP version not FSE ).
    7. and somewhere in the middle of it I talked about 3 plugins I’ve written to help visualise my server side performance: oik-bwtrace sb-chart-block and slog.

    This post is the annotated version of the slides.

  • Slog – server performance testing

    An update on my long running endeavour to visualise the effect on server performance of changes to my WordPress websites.

    Since 2015 I’ve been developing a routine to compare the effect on server response times of the top 12 WordPress plugins. I’m just about ready to publish some results.
