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

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.

Call for Speakers

The WordPress Portsmouth Meetup group are looking for speakers for January 2020 onwards. If you have a WordPress related talk that you feel would be of interest to our members please contact one of the organisers by whichever means you choose: Slack, Twitter, Meetup, Email.

Our meetings in the past 12 months have been as follows

Notes:

  • Even though we are mainly about WordPress we do also cover some other web topics. e.g. copy writing, branding, GDPR, security.
  • We’re also happy to include remote speakers.
  • We enjoy a variety of formats: straight forward presentations, multi media, workshops and clinics.
  • We sometimes have a suite of lightning talks: 5-10 minutes.
  • Mostly we have one speaker; talk and Q&A taking 40 mins to one hour.

Calling all local WordPress agencies

In 2020 we want to significantly grow the WordPress Portsmouth Meetup group’s membership. We want to double the number of members; from 130 to 260.

Starting in November (2019) 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.

And we want to increase the average attendance at our meetups

This month Graham Armfield, from Coolfields Consulting, is going to take us through a very informative presentation on accessibility. That’s something that you should be doing when you develop a client’s website. Or as Graham puts it.

It makes sense to treat accessibility as a website requirement โ€“ even if your client doesnโ€™t specifically ask for it.

Fun with emoticons

They look different in the front end! These emoticons were copied and pasted from the 20th March meetup entry.


When viewed in the front end the emoticons in the left block may look different from the screen captures. The left hand side is the text part of a Media and Text block. The right hand side is the screen capture of the left hand side.
