WordPress in HTML5 • WordPress Help

Well yeah, that's nothing more and nothing less what Enric Enrich wants in passing all the code from WordPress to HTML5 . I do not lend him the profit, of course and, honestly, I do not think he's going to do it, besides that if he ends up encouraging what I recommend is that he join the development team and let him take care of the rest of the developers. [19659003] Because the idea is good, what is not so much is to approach it as a personal concept, why? Because WordPress is not a personal project, it belongs to the community . Another thing is to make a theme in HTML5, as he did with TwentyFive but to stand as a "personal" goal to pass WordPress to HTML5 seems to me, not madness, nonsense, and forgive me for being so sincere.

So, Enric, my advice is that you think about it, and concentrate your efforts on – one of two – join the WordPress development team, collaborating with the code, or develop topics in HTML5 which we will all appreciate. But come on, that's my opinion, that I do not want to discourage you, only that I see it from another prism.

By the way, Enric, if you read this, to see if you put a feed to your blog, that neither Google Reader recognizes it and there is no way to follow you except on blogs.gov

 bmpress "title =" bmpress "width =" 500 "height =" 339 "class =" aligncenter size-medium wp-image-5288 "/> </a></p>
<p> The WordPress microworld can say that it does not lack practically nothing." We have a platform for the creation of <a href= blogs and websites multiuser and multiblog sites social networks microblogging forums and with bmPress social bookmarking.

bmPress is a combination of plugin and theme with which to generate a social bookmarking site, either as a repository of your online activity, to share links with your friends, or for corporate favorites, you decide to use it.

Like all other 'WordPress' products, bmPress is licensed GPL The process of use, although somewhat more a priori complex than other systems, is actually good simple, you only need download the latest version of the bmPress plugin (or if you cheer up the development version ), choose some of the available specialized themes for this feature, and start posting and Share your bookmarks.

Right now there are 2 themes ready for bmPress, these:

  1. bmPress minimal (the official)
  2. WP Minimal (compatible)

But you can also adapt another theme simply modifying the loop of the files index.php single.php search.php and archive.php . Where do you find this code (for the example we use the Kubrick theme):

In all the files that I have noted before, you substitute it by the following:

Come on, that to show a bookmark in your theme you have to use the simple code:

Or a little more elaborate:

Then, adding favorites is really simple, more powerful. And is that bmPress includes two new menus that will greatly facilitate the task of adding bookmarks …

On the one hand, in your admin panel of WordPress you add the options icon " Blogmarks ", where you have a bookmarlet that, by adding it to your browser's favorites bar, will allow you to add bookmarks while browsing. It is the most powerful and easy to use option (although you can also create posts to use), and allows you to add public and private bookmarks, which only registered users will see. More ?, the bookmarks will add them with a screenshot in miniature and the link to the original site, as it should be.

 bmpress-bookmarlet "title =" bmpress-bookmarlet "width =" 500 "height =" 362 "class =" aligncenter size-medium wp-image-5289 "srcset =" http://bootstrapx.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/bmpress-bookmarlet-500x362.png 500w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/bmpress-bookmarlet.png 640w "sizes =" (max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px "/> </a></p>
<p> And it also offers you an option to import bookmarks that you already have from Delicious or an Atom source (XML) from <a href= Blogmarks.net from the option of " Import " from the same section " Blogmarks ]. "

Did you like the idea? What's more, do you want to see how it works? Then go for the bmPress demo that I've prepared. of an RSS feed of your bookmarks, share them in GReader, in T witter, whatever you want, even replace my personal page with a bmPress, something more than a plugin do not you think?
