In my first of two rather self-indulgent blog posts this week — one here (look for it tomorrow) and one on RP3 Agency’s “Magnetisms” blog — I talk about how much I love the WordPress community.Add to Flipboard
Matt Marquis, chair of the Responsive Images Community Group, asked on Twitter:
Anyone know whether
picture/Picturefill support is officially in the works for WordPress? Could swear I saw something about that once.
There’s no official, native support for the
<picture> element (or its polyfill) in WordPress, and the Picturefill.js script is not included in the WordPress distribution (like jQuery is), but you can use both the
<picture> element along with Picturefill.js in your WordPress theme today, if you’re not afraid of a little custom theming. We’ll follow the instructions for using Picturefill.js by Scott Jehl for our actual
<picture> element markup.
Did I mention that I listen to a lot of podcasts? Of course I did. So last week I was listening to the latest episode of Happy Monday, a web design podcast hosted by Sarah Parmenter and Josh Long and featuring guest Colin Devroe. During the course of it, Sarah expressed her belief that using WordPress for anything other than a blog was “a hack.”Add to Flipboard
I’m not the first to write a post like this, nor will I be the last. But Jetpack, the ubiquitous plugin from Automattic, is likely one of the most polarizing collections of code in the WordPress universe. And in recent days it has occupied its own special level of hell for me.Add to Flipboard
