Best WordCamp Speakers?

Best WordCamp Speakers?  阅读原文»

As we complete speaker selection for the annual WordPress conference (a.k.a. WordCamp San Francisco), it’s clear that even though there were more than 200 speaker applications, many great WordCamp speakers did not apply. No fear! We will seek them out to make sure that WordCamp SF has a fantastic lineup, including people who didn’t apply (too shy? who knows?) but have wowed local crowds at previous WordCamps.

This is about as basic a survey as there is. Tell us the three best WordCamp presentations you saw in the past year or so. For each, give the presenters name, the topic (exact title not necessary) and which WordCamp it was at (important).


1. Joe Shmoe, Using the Loop, WordCamp Sheboygan 2011
2. Jane Doe, Top 5 WordPress Plugins, WordCamp La Mancha 2010
3. Lee Smith, Your First Core Patch, WordCamp Atlantis 2011

That’s it. We don’t need your name or any info at all, just your three top speaker votes. We’ll take a look at the people with the most votes, and consider them for WCSF if they’re not already in the application pool. Thanks for your help in making this year’s conference better and more WordPressy than ever. :)

Vote Now!

P.S. Have you bought your tickets yet?

WordPress.com oEmbed Provider API Now Available

WordPress.com oEmbed Provider API Now Available  阅读原文»

Last week, we introduced support forOAuth2 and launched develop.wordpress.com, as we’reeager to empower the developer community to extend WordPress.com in new and meaningful ways.

Today, we’re excited toannounce the availability of our newoEmbed Provider API, yet another way to make it easy for third-party services and their respective audiences to share and consume content.

oEmbed is a format for allowing an embedded representation of a URL on third-party sites. The simple API allows a website to display embedded content (such as photos or videos) when a user posts a link to that resource, without having to parse the resource directly.

Same post, multiple formats

The API supports any WordPress.com URL, any WordPress.com-hosted domain or subdomain (EG: http://techcrunch.com/, http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/) as well asWP.me shortlinkspointing to WordPress.com-hosted sites.

Hop over todevelop.wordpress.comand see theoEmbed ProviderAPIdocumentationfor more information. Keep impressing the world with innovative ways to use the wonderful breadth of content created by our millions of talented bloggers!

New Theme: Manifest  阅读原文»

When we think about the very basic fundamentals of blogging and expressing ideas we find the clear practice of writing. Today we are launching a new theme which tries to reflect precisely on that. Manifest is a wonderful theme for writers.

This is a theme that presents your creations in an elegant and powerfully clean way, offering your readers an intimate and direct experience with your thoughts.

The Manifest Theme

With content being the clear focus in Manifest, you can create different types of posts by choosing appropriate post formats. You can create image posts, link posts, asides, and Manifest will present them in the same neat, clutter free way it shows your regular text posts. You can even add a subtle header image to bring a personal touch to the design.

The Manifest Theme was designed by Jim Barraud. Go and learn more about it on the theme showcase, or activate it right away at Appearance → Themes. And once you are done, just start posting.

New Theme: Matala  阅读原文»

Today we’re excited to launch Matala, our newest theme. You might recognize this one ― it was once the primary theme for ma.tt, Matt Mullenweg’s blog. Last year, Matala was released to the WordPress.org Themes Directory, and now we’re thrilled to bring it to WordPress.com.

The Matala Theme

Originally designed by Nicolò Volpato, Matala’s bright colors and dynamic shapes are suggestive of designs seen in Talavera, a pottery tradition common in Puebla, Mexico. Grungy textures, hand-scribbled icons, and whimsically titling text in the main navigation menu join the colors and shapes to give your blog a bright, playful look.

You can use Matala’s fun design as is, or create a look of your own with a custom background image and custom header image.

Matala comes with three widget-ready areas: the right-hand sidebar and two columns at the bottom of your post content column. In addition, there is a full-width page for single-image pages, an option to display a small “Random Photos” gallery on single-image pages, and support for six post formats ― aside, status, quote, video, image and gallery.

Learn more about Matala’s features on the Theme Showcase.

WordPress 3.2.1

WordPress 3.2.1  阅读原文»

After more than a million downloads of WordPress 3.2, we’re now releasing WordPress 3.2.1 into the wild. This maintenance release fixes a server incompatibility related to JSON that’s unfortunately affected some of you, as well as a few other fixes in the new dashboard design and the Twenty Eleven theme. If you’ve already updated to 3.2, then this update will be even faster than usual, thanks to the new feature in 3.2 that only updates files that have been changed, rather than replacing all the files in your installation.

For a full list of fixes, view the changelog the list of tickets. Our release haiku:

JSON, the admin
A little bit tidier
Edge cases covered

Download 3.2.1 or update now from the Dashboard → Updates menu in your site’s admin area.
