WordPress 5.8 – Duotone filter

Original
Duotone filter

Forest.

Even a child knows how valuable the forest is. The fresh, breathtaking smell of trees. Echoing birds flying above that dense magnitude. A stable climate, a sustainable diverse life and a source of culture. Yet, forests and other ecosystems hang in the balance, threatened to become croplands, pasture, and plantations.

WordPress 5.8 – New blocks and patterns

Question: Can we reproduce the Past events widget, which used the bw_related shortcode with the Query Loop block?

We need to show:

  • 3 posts per page
  • of the custom post type meetup
  • ordered by descending _date
  • where the date is in the past.

Answer: TL;DR NO.

  • Yes, we can list posts from Meetup.
  • Yes, we can show 3 posts per page
  • But we can’t show the Query Pagination block
  • Sorting does not appear to work on this CPT
  • We can’t run the query against post meta data

WordFest 2021 – 23 July 2021

We are pleased to be a community partner for #WordFestLive – the festival of WordPress.

Lots of great activities for the 2nd edition at the event starting on 23 July 2021.

Join us there by registering at WordFest. Tickets are free! There is an optional $10 donation that can be made when registering.

WordFest Live 2021 is an inclusive, one-day virtual event with speakers from around the world.

For a continuous 24 hours, speakers will present on one of four stages and most from their home region. The event is staffed completely by volunteers with all donations going to support Big Orange Heart, enabling the further development of the 4 Health Hubs.

What’s New for the July 23 WordFest Live

copied from the Media Kit…

Photo Booth

This time around attendees can jump in our virtual photo booth and take a snap of themselves at WordFest Live.To add to the fun, attendees can share their WordFest Live experience on social media by showing off their photo booth snaps.

Games Tent

Here’s a chance to grab a freebie from our Global sponsors. Attendees can visit the Games Tent to try their hand at any of the games there. You never know what you might just come away with – a year of free web hosting, access to premium communities or maybe some cool swag – so make plans to swing by throughout the event!  

Community Interviews

Meet the community in a whole new way! Along with the fun and games, we’ve added interviews with different members of the WordPress community. Some have been selected by our sponsors, others by our organizers, and WordPress podcasters and other dynamic community members will be doing the recorded interviews. We can’t wait to hear all these great conversations.

Live Human Captioning

We continue to look for ways to make WordFest Live as accessible — and as enjoyable — as we possibly can. To do this, we’ve added in Live Human Captioning. But this does come at a cost and we need help from the community to fund the Live Human Captioning across the whole event. Live Captions benefits all attendees, not just those who are deaf or hard of hearing.

If you’re wondering how this benefits your business on a practical level, read through 3 Business Benefits of Sponsoring Live Human Captioning.

#24KStepsToMentalHealth

The 24,000 Steps To Mental Health Challenge

This WordFest Live, we’re inviting attendees to join us for a special challenge #24kStepstoMentalHealth where you can help raise funds for mental health by pledging to take a fixed number of steps.

We are asking WordFest attendees, WordPress enthusiasts, and supporters of mental health anywhere in the world to join us in taking not one, not two, but 24,000 steps towards mental health.

It’s a big number but we can do it together!

Pledge to run/walk/hula hoop a fixed number of steps every day until the big day and share your journey with friends and colleagues.

You can also choose to take part in our 24-hour relay where 6 participants around the globe will complete 24,000 steps between them (4,000 steps per individual).

There are multiple ways you can participate:

  • 24,000 steps in the run-up to WordFest Live
  • 24,000 steps in 24 hours on the day of the event – a cross-continent relay race where participants in groups of six will complete a total of 24,000 steps
  • Come up with your own fundraiser like some of our supporters have: 24 days of artwork, 24,000 yards of swimming, and 24 days of mindful movement. Get creative!

Head over to the WordFest Live website to get started today!!!

Calling all local WordPress agencies in 2021

Towards the end of 2019, we published this blog post “Calling all local WordPress agencies”. In this post we outlined our objective to double the number of WordPress Portsmouth Meetup members from 130 to 260.

Well,

  1. We didn’t quite achieve the target – membership on Jan 18th is 242.
  2. Our growth was not in response to any effort to contact local WordPress agencies.

So let’s try again in 2021.

Calling all local WordPress agencies

In 2021 we want to grow the WordPress Portsmouth Meetup group’s membership. We want to attract more members from WordPress agencies.

We’ll be writing to local WordPress agencies to:

  • let you know we exist
  • invite you to our meetups
  • invite you to get involved in the local WordPress community

If you’re part of a WordPress agency, and we haven’t written to you, and some or all of your team are interested in finding out more about the local WordPress community, then please join the Meetup group and get in touch.

Let us know what you want

We want to ensure that our meetups satisfy the needs of the local community.

If you think that the WordPress Portsmouth Meetup is for you and your team then join the community and get involved.

Join our meetup

Join the Portsmouth WordPress Meetup group today.

If not, why don’t you let us know what we can do.

We want to know what you want to know.

Why are List blocks over on the left?

Earlier today Andrew Leonard and I were playing with the columns CSS property. When we were applying it to a list block we noticed that the block was to the left hand side of the editor. We were using the Twenty Sixteen theme. We tracked it down to some CSS that set the left and right margins to small values. Normally they’re auto.
