WordPress 4.7.1 Security Update

Neues Jahr, neues Update – es sind Lücken gefunden und geschlossen worden, und ein bisschen aufgeräumt wurde auch unter dem Blogsofa, also ran an die Updateknöpf - egal, ob nun per Download und FTP, spooky WordPress Auto-Update oder per abgefahrenem Eigenbau.

WordPress versions 4.7 and earlier are affected by eight security issues:

Remote code execution (RCE) in PHPMailer – No specific issue appears to affect WordPress or any of the major plugins we investigated but, out of an abundance of caution, we updated PHPMailer in this release. This issue was reported to PHPMailer by Dawid Golunski and

11 Jahre Webrocker Blog

Hossa. Heute vor elf Jahren habe ich den ersten Beitrag in das frisch installierte WordPress Dings geschrieben.

Ich stelle mal was Kuchen und ne Tanne Kaffee auf den Tisch dahinten neben dem Kommentarfeld, nehmt Euch ein Stück oder zwei, wir sind ja nicht so viele hier, passt schon. Milch ist neben dem Archiv im Kühlschrank.

Falls Ihr mich sucht, ich bin unten im Codekeller, ich muss dringend ein paar Leitungen reparieren.

WordPress 4.6 "Pepper" ist da

Vor drei Tagen ist die neue WordPress Version erschienen.

New features in 4.6 help you to focus on the important things while feeling more at home.

Hm, na dann… :-)
In den paar Installationen, die ich schon aktualisiert habe, lief alles glatt und ohne Auffälligkeiten, daher drücke ich nun auch hier in der Bloghütte den Update Button.

WordPress 4.5.3 Security Release

Gestern abend ist eine neue Version mit Sicherheits- und Wartungsfixes erschienen. Bei den diversen Installationen, in die ich involviert bin, hat sich das automatisch aktualisiert, auch bei älteren Versionen als 4.5.2, wie gehabt gibt es die Source aber auch zum Download auf wordpress.org.

Ch-ch-ch-changes

For a long time it has bugged me that the css for the recent version of my site was desktop-down. I made some adjustments for adaptive/responsive behaviour three or four years ago, but since the code base of my site is organically growing since I started it on WordPress in 2005… uhm, I think you get the picture. So all I did back then was to consider how the site should look on smaller screens, and making modifications inside max-width media queries, keeping all of the desktop-related stuff as the default styles, outside any media queries.
Of course when starting ...

Revisiting the Service Worker / Offline cache

Motivated by the sudden appearance of the "Add to home screen" prompt, I spent the last couple of hours to tune my Service Worker / caching behaviour:

- I can now exclude parts of my site from the service worker. This was an important feature for me, since the WordPress backend didn't sit too well with stubborn cached items.

- I established a number of caches for different items:
-- a "static" cache that has the base css and the page that gets displayed when the network is offline.
-- a "content" cache, that stores up to 25 URLs a visitor has, well, visited, while being online.
-- an "image" cache, that stores up to 45 image files, and finally
-- an "asset" cache for up to 35 files (everything that is not HTML and not an image).

The limits are rather random, but I think each cache has an build-in maximum of 50 entries (?), so to see if it works, I choosed numbers smaller than that.

Progressive Web(rocker)App

Ha! It! Really! Works!

I have to admit I was a bit sceptical of the outcome after I tweaked and added things and bits of my website at the Indiewebcamp in Nuremberg, setting up a service worker and offline caching things, adding a manifest file … while in theory I understand what all of this was supposed to do, I felt a bit dumb for not completly grasping how to control the stuff.

So as so often when learning new tricks on the web, it started with copy/pasting a working solution and trying to adapt this to my ideas.

But ...

Putting the 'I' in Indieweb

It's about time for a write-up of the latest tweaks and developments on my site to get this note/status posting and syndicating over to twitter working, which is still a little bit messy, a mixture of plugins and self-made hacks.

There's still plenty to do, but slowly it is coming together:

- I am using normal WordPress posts, but with the custom post format of 'status' for the 'tweets'. Maybe I'll switch this to a custom post type, which will make excluding these posts from the 'normal' loop and rss feeds ...

The design, the code, 1909 texts, the illustrations, and some photos are made by me.
