WPWeekly Episode 155 – Facebook Groups, Selfies, and Heavy Analytics

In this weeks short and sweet edition of WordPress weekly, we get you caught up on the news of the week. We share our reactions to Automattic’s new Selfies app for Android and whether it’s a sign of things to come with the Gravatar mobile app.

Heavy analytics ceases development but the code lives on. Outside of what Heavy Analytics offers, I’ve never seen a collection of analytics specifically catered to WordPress and BuddyPress. Hopefully, someone or a team picks up the reigns and continues development. Last but not least, we discuss the trend of theme shops dropping option frameworks in favor of using the customizer built into WordPress.

Stories Discussed:

WordPress.tv Seeks Bilingual Moderators to Help Expand International Coverage
WPCore Plugin Manager Adds Favoriting and Custom Plugins to Collections
GavickPro Abandons Theme Framework in Favor of WordPress Customizer
