<p> Well, if we still do not have WordPress 3.7 here, there's already news and interesting news that are announced for WordPress 3.8, <a title= whose launch is scheduled for the month of December of this year .

And the first interesting novelty is the announcement of what will be the new Default theme when WordPress 3.8 arrives which following the usual line will be called Twenty Fourteen or 2014 and the idea is to keep it as default theme for a full year, all year or 2014 which would have all the logic, and not as with Twenty Thirteen, released as default theme a few days ago with WordPress 3.6 and that has already been born dead, from my point of view .

And is that Twenty Thirteen was born with a clear orientation towards blogging and input formats, a question that was going to be the great novelty of WordPress 3.6 but that remained in the pipeline (for my taste thankfully).

But interestingly, for WordPress 3.8, the new theme by default breaks with the usual theme of default WordPress themes, betting on a theme of the type " magazine " , oriented to multi-user sites, and with a lot of advanced features which I think is a wise move, and I explain myself …

So far it has been wagered (except with Twenty Thirteen) for minimalist themes, almost to serve of base for development of other subjects, taking advantage of that incorp they prayed all the new functions of each version, but I think it's a mistake, because the new user of WordPress, nothing else to install the safe CMS that wants to see its recent web with an unbeatable aspect and not that sad vision of a Twenty Eleven or similar that does not show the power and virtues of WordPress with the naked eye

That's why I think it's a wise bet for an advanced theme, that from the first moment offers a colorful design, elegant, and with multiple possibilities . If a developer wants a base theme you can always use _s a wonder for these issues.

But hey, you're probably wanting to know the qualities of Twenty Fourteen and even throwing at a glance, right?

Its virtues are as follows:

  • Adaptable design ( responsive )
  • Featured content area, at the top of the screen, showing up to a maximum of entries Featured (eye, require JetPack installed)
  • Native support of input formats: standard, video, image, gallery, mini-entry, appointment.
  • List of entries of each format, showing the last two entries of each format entry in the sidebar.
  • Fixed header in screens over 770px width.
  • Social links area at the top of the header to Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, LinkedIn, Flickr, GitHub profiles , Dribbble, YouT ube and Vimeo.
  • No less than 7 widget areas.
  • Two custom menu locations.
  • Customizable header height
  • Customizable background
  • Optional full width page template (without sidebar.
  • Floating text citation format left or right.
  • Various levels of submenus.
  • 100% GPL

You can see all these features already in the demo site for the purpose .

The issue is not new, it is a premium theme – so far paid – called Further which could be purchased in WordPress .com and other markets, but which is going to be adapted to make it the new default theme in WordPress 3.8 it does not seem that in its appearance but in the internal code.

The theme as a whole I like it, which does not mean that I will use it, because is not my "[1 9459015] type ". That yes, I hope that it changes the way to show the images in the entrances, that I do not like that framing that adds the subject to him. For the rest it is very good, it is a very colorful subject and at the same time readable and clear.

WordPress 3.6 will come out this month at last! • WordPress Help

 wordpress 3.6 mp6 Although we almost gave it up for lost, it seems that the version WordPress 3.6 follows its course and at a good pace, despite having to change the plans for the withdrawal of the formats interface of entry .

In a statement a few hours ago has been made a review of the pending tasks, confirming that there are less than 40 open tickets and, most importantly, that this very Friday the first RC version ( release candidate or candidate for publication ) may already be available.

This only means that, if nothing is broken, we will have the final version of WordPress 3.6 before the end of July so we can enjoy it all summer.

The interface of withdrawal formats of WordPress 3.6

Due to the delays that version 3.6 of WordPress is suffering, mainly because of the enormous work to launch efficiently and without cracks the new interface of input formats in the editor, it is delayed for a later version this announced novelty of WordPress 3.6 .

WordPress 3.6 was already being delayed too much so a few minutes ago it was announced that the incorporation of the visual interface of input formats is delayed , which can be incorporated by means of a plugin, something similar to what is being done with MP6 .

Personally, since you ask me ( ah, you have not asked me! same, I say ) is that should stay like this, how plugin, but hey, that's another question that we discussed days ago .

The good news is that WordPress 3.6 will be available very soon once removed Ada this functionality. I'll let you know when I know a specific date.

Hundreds of thousands of blogs migrate from Tumblr to WordPress • WordPress Help

At a rate of more than 70,000 migrations per hour the announcement of Tumblr's sale to Yahoo seems to have caused a massive flight of Tumblr users towards WordPress .

The recent purchase of Tumblr microblogging service by Yahoo one of the most expensive in history, does not seem to have convinced many users who, in a massive way, seem to be migrating towards WordPress as an alternative to continue posting on their blogs.

Fortunately migrating from Tumblr to WordPress is extremely simple, since every installation of WordPress incorporates an importer from Tumblr that effectively migrates the content:
 ] migrate from tumblr to wordpress

All this makes the migration painless after which the Tumblr user just has to choose a theme to his liking from the thousands that there are available in WordPress.

The input formats in WordPress 3.6 and how to remove them

 tweet key

The new interface of the input formats in WordPress 3.6 has many followers, but also detractors , among which I am, since I have to open the debate.

And I do not like the input formats for three main reasons:

  1. They put the emphasis of WordPress as a platform focused on blogging something that I thought was rejected by the broader platform concept of content publication but by adopting so prominently this " incitement " to entries of microblogging something besides inherited from Tumblr and consequently nothing original WordPress focuses on bloggers, to my liking too (and says a proud blogger to be one).
  2. general, entry formats encourage pub little content, microblogging . This apparently has its good part, it would bring back to the blogs (yes, I said blogs) the small updates and shared content that right now are only shared on Twitter or Facebook networks, but then there is the fact that encourages this type of formats too few, that in fact contribute little how content.
  3. They tie you to their later use, because if you change your mind you will have a lot of entries without title, or with strange titles (names of audio files, etc).

That is why the emphasis on the input formats seem appropriate only for personal blogs but not for the rest of web or blog structures, because would encourage – perhaps too much – to microcontents losing content to the web as a whole

 the era of microblogging

Someone will tell me that not much typing is written better and more interesting, but personally, when in doubt, I prefer a good content, reasoned, explained, illustrated and complete which really adds value to the web, to the current dictatorship of the owner .

And, That said, for you to choose, you should know that, even though the interface of WordPress 3.6 input formats is displayed by default you can remove it if you are not going to use it and thus avoid the occasion by removing from the view the temptation.

You can do it in two ways:

  1. In the screen options you can unmark the input formats so that they are not shown, so that only the editor will have the "normal" editor at your disposal , publishing in the standard format
  2. Definitively deactivating the input formats by means of the newly published plugin ] Disable post format UI which removes the po ability to even show them.

From here you decide if you use them or not.

For my part, I use them here years ago, even before the input formats were available, how minintradas , which I use to warn of urgent news (downloads and those things) that do not give for more and I do not even show them in the " loop " but in the sidebar, because that's where I find sense.

] Also, I'm always thinking about using them in my personal blog to gradually abandon the fact of publishing original (short) content on Twitter, but apart from those small biased uses I generally think that is an exaggeration as much visibility as it is given in WordPress 3.6, they are good as an option and personal decision, but not so they have so much presence, prompting its use if or if .

What do you think of this?

Twenty Thirteen, the new default WordPress theme, nice but a concept error • WordPress Help

 twentythirteen 2013 theme wordpress

Yesterday the one that will be the new default theme of WordPress named with great imagination Twenty Thirteen .

Its virtues are many, and it's even pretty, but from my point of view it's a big misconception.

We'll start with the characteristics of what will be new theme for WordPress defect:

  • Directed to blogging that is, inverse chronological format by default
  • Google Web Fonts specifically Source Sans Bitter . It also uses Genericons for scaled theme icons, which are adapted by CSS to any size.
  • Adaptive ( responsive ), which means it adapts to any mobile device
  • Very oriented to the use of input formats each identified with a different color in the " loop ", which extends to the entire width of the design
  • ] Width of a single column which means that there is no default, although you can add one, sidebars or widgets possible in the "sides" of the theme structure, which are restricted to the foot of the subject.
  • Image of header width and height fixed
  • Distinct file templates by input format
  • The searcher and site title remain fixed when making scroll not the image or a cropped version da sa
  • Bonitos file browsing icons

If you see the demo is certainly nice, and very colorful, but we are going with what I consider a concept error

The default themes of WordPress, how we knew them until now, going through the different versions of K2 and up to Twenty Twelve, offer an adaptable base for personalization of minimalist design that each user adapts to their tastes and needs of structure and content .

However, Twenty Thirteen part of a powerful design, very nice yes, but more closed to the use of children themes ]which would require a lot of code (too much) for an adaptation to other, less "cool" uses, like the one offered to us.

And, of course, we will still have Twenty Twelve as the basis for our projects, but then what's the point? has to put 2013 how to theme by defect in the installation? would not it be better to just offer it like so many others in the repository ?, and make an adaptation of Twenty Twelve to incorporate all the news of the new versions. This is simply what I do not understand.

And in the end we are dragging various themes by default, without a natural evolution. And yes, I understand falling in love with the Tumblr concept of the entry formats, a cry of hope before the domination of social networks, but without forgetting that WordPress must be an open concept , especially in its standard installation.

Some time ago we abandoned the " sanbenito " that WordPress is a smaller platform, for bloggers, and this decision of a default theme specifically oriented to bloggers I think an error, concept .

WordPress should be, increasingly, the base platform for simple and powerful publication and management of different types of content (input formats included), leaving aspects how the design, thematic orientation, the visual and content structure to the user, through plugins and themes, and not try an ideological orientation of where you want to go using WordPress, but rather the user who decides what type of project and use to apply it .

At least it is my opinion, yours still has not …
