Chrome causes display errors in WordPress administration

As you can read in the WordPress bug reporting section, a recent Chrome browser update, specifically version 45, causes display errors in the WordPress management area .

] It seems to be, and I say it seems to be because in my case I could not reproduce the error, when passing the cursor through different elements of the administration menu, produces a very ugly error like that of the following captures. [19659002] The error, incidentally, is not WordPress but Chrome, related to the element called "Redesign of color and composition" comes active by default, and can be avoided by doing what next:

And if you do not expect Chrome version 47, it has already been announced that it will fix this ugly error that, again, is not from WordPress but Chrome .

Mac web notifications from WordPress

Since the introduction of the Safari browser of the Mavericks version of Mac OSX, and also recently in Chrome for Mac, your website may show Desktop notices to encourage your readers to receive notices on your computer, even if they do not have the web browser open .

This thing called Web Push Notifications is a subscription system to the news of a really interesting website, because when you publish new content the user will receive a warning of their operating system, even if they do not have the web browser open being able to check the last of your site.

What's more, there are some systems that allow you to send personalized notices, not just the automatic ones that are generated every time you publish a new entry.

And the best thing of all is that there are a lot of free services that allow to integrate this system of Web Push Notifications in WordPress through plugins. Let's see some …

Web Push Notifications

Really simple, just install it and add a new icon to the desktop menu of WordPress from which you access the web service of Tidio from where configure the appearance of the subscription and desktop notices. It also allows sending personalized messages.

For Chrome notifications it is necessary to upload a file to your server via FTP, due to the requirement that they are HTTPS connections.

All simple and all for free . [19659015] OneSignal Web Push Notifications

This plugin links to OneSignal, a service that connects to the Google Developer Console so that, once registered (free) in OneSignal, you create an application that activates the desktop web ads.

A little bit more cumbersome to start up than the previous one but equally very effective and also free .

Push Monkey

Another service that offers us, through a plugin, the creation of web notifications is that of Push Monkey. Once installed the plugin automatically invites us to its settings page, which encourages us to create an account, which will offer us a trial service for 30 days, or if we prefer one of the payment plans, ranging from $ 2.5 a month, you decide, but the good thing is that you can try it before.

The system is very easy to configure, has statistics and works great.

Roost Web Push

One of the most used, the Roost web notification system also goes through the registration in their service, offering notices in Safari and Chrome, plus a lot more options.

Like the previous one, just install the plugin invites us to create a 30-day trial account in the service before using it, with the proviso that you will ask us for the credit card information, even if they do not load anything initially.

The good news is that you can skip this step , so if you leave the proces or register in that step and go back to your WordPress you will see that you can access with the chosen email and password and use it without needing to give any banking information.

From the plugin's administration page you have access to the settings, where you can even specify the sending of notices when there are new messages in bbPress forums, what categories will send notifications, and if you prefer to send the notification only when a user visits you more than once or only after clicking on something, not to be especially heavy.

Of course, as a professional service that is, you can also send personalized notices, not just the automatic ones when you post something, a great marketing element.

Which is better?

It's a complicated question. Actually the best is the Roost system and in fact the most used professionally. Now, if for you it is a problem the monthly payment for a service for a limited user segment (Mac users) perhaps your best choice is one of the first two, among which wins by a landslide in simplicity Tidio system the plugin called Web Push Notifications simpler is impossible.

Above all keep in mind what I just pointed out, that is something that you offer to a very specific sector of visitors, those who use Safari or Chrome for Mac who will be the ones who will really take advantage of this type of notification service.

Yes, you will mark differences completely, because it does not stop being a really powerful subscription service, that warns your readers even if they do not have the browser open, directly on their computer desktop .


Note: Web notifications only work with the web browser S afari for Mac OSX and Chrome for Mac OSX, and in the case of Chrome only with HTTPS.

Automatic updates in WordPress 3.7

 homer simpson working

Well, not everything will be WordPress news 3.8 and seen that the next version we will have, by October 2013, will be WordPress 3.7 and new features are appearing.

Everything points to WordPress 3.7 going to be a version oriented towards stability and security ]in line with the latest versions of WordPress, which have greatly reduced the need for maintenance updates and are increasingly stable and secure .

And some of what already seems safe is that WordPress 3.7 will incorporate automatic updates, and in the background of the system a little late of its initial announcement more than 2 years ago but it's better late than never.

The idea is that, at least initially, are automatically updated without user intervention the minor versions . In other words, if you have WordPress 3.7 installed and a security review is released, your CMS will update itself to WordPress 3.7.1, without asking . However, also includes the possibility of automatic updates to major versions for example from 3.7.2 to 3.8.

Anyway, and following the philosophy of WordPress will meet the premises of simplicity and free choice of the user so that these updates will be, in any case, a decision of the administrator of the site, will not come active by default and so everyone is happy.

The model to follow for these automatic updates will be the plugin Automattic updater, which we talked about a while ago as well, but only for WordPress, without including plugins like the original plugin. As I say … we're working on it.

I've talked a lot with friends, WordPresseros of course, about this issue and, with the first reticence about whether it would be optional (if) the majority has seemed like a fantastic option, because in the end is not something new for the user or has Google Chrome broken your updates in the background ?, What not ?, and that there not lets you choose.

But hey, that's part of the debate right?

Do you think that WordPress automatically updates in the background?

How to know what WordPress plugins a web uses? • WordPress Help

 wordpress plugins

Knowing which WordPress theme uses a web is quite easy, and we have already seen several other methods of guessing it on other occasions, but for to know what WordPress plugins use is a bit more complicated, but still possible.

One of the easiest ways to find out is through an extension, available for Chrome and Firefox browsers ]that within its analysis of websites, if it is a WordPress, in addition to the theme, also lists the plugins that it uses .

I mean SpyBar, an extension that, although it is not free, for the professional really interested in discovering those little secrets, it can be a great investment. In addition, the price is not that it is excessive, because for only 12.95 $ you have it up and running with a lot of features, not only detect plugins and WordPress themes . ] Perfect is not, everything has to be said, because it does not make us list all the plugins that the site uses, but if it detects a good amount of them.

Surely you're already thinking that you can also detect them by identifying specific CSS classes and references in the code but it's much more tedious and slow, you will not deny that to me.

So yourself, but existing exists, and works quite well.
