WPWeekly Episode 51 – TalkPress And More

wordpressweekly1David Peralty didn’t make it this week but a wide range of people did. It was a blast from the past episode as it mainly consisted of a roundtable discussion on a number of topics ranging from TalkPress to the WordPress HelpCenter to Plugin Style Sheets. This is an insanely long episode but when you get a group of WordPress faithful together in a tavern serving free drinks on a Friday evening, this is what you’re going to get. Enjoy.

WordPress Tavern Listener Poll:

Each week from now on, I’ll be featuring a new listener poll question on WPTavern.com The poll is located in the sidebar on the right hand side of the site.

Last weeks poll question was: Are You Excited For WordPress 2.8?

Out of a total of 22 votes, 11 people voted Meh, 10 of you voted Yes while 1 of you voted No

This Weeks Poll Question Is: Is Blogging dying because of Facebook, Twitter, etc?

Plugin Picks Of The Week:

JeffDiggBar Killer – DiggBar Killer adds a little snippet of Javascript to your WordPress website to remove any frames or iframes, such as the Digg Bar, which are surrounding it. DiggBar Killer also has a (100% optional) annoy feature. You can choose to annoy users coming from digg.com by showing an obnoxious message. The default “annoy” folder comes with some ugly animated GIFs and a MIDI file, but can be easily customized using plain-ole HTML & CSS (no PHP knowledge required).

The last WordCamp Chicago ticket is still up for grabs for whomever provides the correct answer first. Provide your trivia answers in the comments and I’ll email the person who gets it correct.

WordPress Trivia Question:

  1. Come on, someone must know the answer to the trivia question, I don’t want to be the only freeloader at WordCamp Chicago!

    I for one hope that TalkPress really kick-starts the bbPress project. If you do a whois on talkpress.org, Matt is camping on that URL as well. I wonder if he is just protecting the brand, or if they are thinking about rebranding bbPress and moving it over to talkpress.org?

    At the very least, I hope that bbPress being a little more active results in bbpress.org getting a facelift. Now that even wordcamp.org has a fresh new look, bbpress.org is really starting to look like the youngest sibling, stuck with hand-me-downs!
