Images from the second day of WordCamp Europe 2015.
WordCamp Europe 2015 took place in Seville, Spain last weekend. Like last year’s event, the organization was flawless.
I recently updated Whereabouts, my WordPress location plugin.
It now allows you to set your current location using the browser’s geolocation api. What that means is: you press a button, and with a little help from Google’s Maps API, you automatically get back your location, without the need of typing it in manually.
Google returns the results at different levels of accuracy. Just choose the one you like and save your whereabouts.
You can get Whereabouts from wordpress.org or just search for it from inside your WordPress installation.
Today we announced picu, our upcoming WordPress plugin, that is aimed at photographers and will help them in their daily workflow.
As Claudio wrote, it is still a bit rough around the edges, but we are in the process of getting our alpha out to a close group of photographer friends. We will release more info about features and free/paid options in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
Head over to picu.io and subscribe, to get informed once picu is ready!
Proud to be on the list of core contributors for the 4.1 release of WordPress along with 283 other awesome people!
I updated my Whereabouts WordPress Plugin a few times since it first launched a couple of weeks ago.
One of the main requests was to enable every user to set their individual location. So I implemented that feature first. Other enhancements include the ability for the admin to decide which users are allowed to use the plugin depending on their role, and a shortcode, that let’s you display the location anywhere in the theme.
Try it, and tell me what you think.
WP Meetup Edinburgh 10/2014
We had another great WordPress meetup in Edinburgh yesterday. Sam Parsons talked about WordPress migration. Here’s a link to his migration script on Github.
It is nice to see that the meetup it is growing. Lot’s of new faces this week. Keep spreading the word!
And, as promised, I delivered the sunglasses I got at WordCamp Europe in Sofia two weeks ago.
WordCamp Europe happened last weekend.
Two days ago I uploaded my first plugin to the repository at WordPress.org. It is called Whereabouts and lets you enter your current location and time (+ time zone) and display that information as a widget.
You can see it in action right above this post. (At least until I post something else.)
I built it for myself primarily, but thought I should actually polish it a bit and share it, so that – maybe – someone else would find it useful. So there, you can download Whereabouts from WordPress.org.
Feedback is welcome. 🙂
