O2 is already here, the evolution of P2

Prologue that theme that turns our installation of WordPress into a Twitter-style social environment, which evolved into P2 now has its older brother in the form of a plugin: O2 .

Unlike its predecessors, O2 is not a theme but a plugin, which is the same, just by activating it, converts a normal installation of WordPress into an active and dynamic communication and collaboration environment, practically a social network in which to share status updates, citations, links, images or complete publications, but all in a controlled environment and with all the virtues and integration with the rest of utilities and advantages of WordPress.

This version of O2, still in early development stage and only available on GitHub requires a previous installation process a little or cumbersome:

  1. Manually install the theme p2-breathe available here in wp-content / themes / p2-breathe
  2. Activate the newly installed theme
  3. If you do not use JetPack, install and activate the plug-in Genericon'd since O2 uses genericons .
  4. If you want to share code inserted in your publications, install the plugin SyntaxHighlighter Evolved the only one compatible to date with O2.
  5. Install the O2 plugin in wp-content / plugins / o2 .
  6. Activate the plugin
  7. Enjoy [19659012] As you have seen the installation is a real pain in the ass to date, but when there are more advanced versions everything will be simplified. So here I leave a zip with everything you need:

    • Topic p2-breathe
    • Plugins Genericon'd and SyntaxHighlighter Evolved
    • Plugin O2

    Now, I warn you that it still does not work well at all, and its requirements are high (WordPress 4.2 or higher and PHP 5.3.6 or higher), so it's likely that you'll get a little war to make it work in conditions (I'll I say from experience), but when you get it you will see that you can have an interesting future as a collaborative environment thanks to its virtues:

    • Specialized for use in a network
    • Focus on use on the cover, not in vain is a manager of publications on cover
    • Native infinity scroll, no need for additional plugins
    • Real-time comments
    • Cross-search in various O2 installations
    • Cross-publication in various O2 installations
    • Appointment announcements name or keyword, co in BuddyPress but better
    • Tags shared between various installations
    • Possibility of publishing and commenting by email
    • Loading images and media with drag and drop directly on the cover of the site
    • Integration with JetPack

    Not for use in production yet, especially since its main virtues of network use are not yet active and is not sufficiently proven in multi-site installations but for the greedy and impatient is a good way to go catching up and start to know their huge future possibilities which has them.

For those about to Rock

… we salute myself

This is my presentation of a while ago in WordCamp Spain de Barcelona as the music does not appear in the presentation I put it aside, that has its crumb (or not ). In the same I pretended – in addition to awakening the staff – show some unusual uses of WordPress, pulling things like bmPress PhotoSmash P2 or themes that convert your WordPress into other things, like some of Elegant Themes of which you already know that I am in love.

Input formats, the wonder of WordPress 3.1

One of the novelties that we will find in the future version of WordPress 3.1 will be the input formats a way to apply custom styles from the theme to different types of publications that we generate with WordPress, something that I consider the natural evolution of the input types .

For this, the input formats are already being introduced in the trac of which at the moment we have …

  • aside – Normally untitled, the famous miniposts, as an update on Facebook or Twitter or in the theme Prologue (or P2)
  • chat – Transcripts of chat
  • gallery – Image galleries
  • link – When they are simply links to other sites
  • image – When only one image is published
  • quote – Dating
  • status – An ac short status update, limited to 140 characters as in Twitter. In this case I see it as redundant with the "aside" format
  • video – When a video is just published

It has also been indicated to add the "audio" formats, for podcasts or similar, and "code" for those small pieces of programming that, here for example, are shared with the readers.

The interface of the input formats will be more or less like this …

As you can see, you can define the input format in the editor and, later, in the ticket management screen will be identified. However Matt does not like to appear as one more line in the publishing widget, so it's not definitive.

Adding input format support is as simple as adding a line like the following to file ' functions.php ' of your theme:

The input formats, or " post formats ", will require updates to our favorite themes, which will add to their current virtues the inclusion of special CSS classes for each type of input format, taking WordPress themes to a higher level. There will also be whoever sounds like this Tumblr call it what you want, in the end is to offer more options to have a more complete WordPress.

Personally I think it's a fantastic idea, that leads WordPress to another level of personalization and much superior design .

Create your own private Twitter with P2

 twitter wordpress "title =" twitter wordpress "width =" 500 "height =" 312 "class =" aligncenter size-medium wp-image -5597 "srcset =" http://bootstrapx.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/twitter-wordpress-500x312.png 500w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07 /twitter-wordpress.png 1024w "sizes =" (max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px "/> </a></p>
<p> If you know how to take advantage of a system similar to <a href= Twitter you have already read many articles here of the possibilities offered by P2 (or Prologue 2), a theme WordPress that mimics Twitter but goes one step further.

Now, you can create a system similar to Twitter but private, with a few simple steps.

1. Install WordPress

If you do not have WordPress installed where you are going to have your own private Twitter, it's time to do it. binder on your server, install a new copy of WordPress in the usual way that we have already explained several times here.

2. Install P2

P2 is going to be the interface of your private Twitter system, download it from the official site and activate it from the admin panel, in the section of 'Appearance -> Themes' .

3. Facilitates the registration of users

One of the virtues, which make P2 behave like Twitter, is the fact that it allows users to publish directly from the front page. Now, to make this process even more transparent, why not put a registration form in it and thus avoid visiting the admin panel?

It's easy, you just have to add this code to the sidebar of P2 (file sidebar.php ):
