WordPress 5.1.1 Security + Maintenance Release

Heute Nacht ist ein neues Update für WordPress 5 und ältere Versionen erschienen:

(…) With a maliciously crafted comment, a WordPress post was vulnerable to cross-site scripting. (…) WordPress versions 5.1 and earlier are affected by these bugs, which are fixed in version 5.1.1. Updated versions of WordPress 5.0 and earlier are also available for any users who have not yet updated to 5.1.

Wie immer bei Security-Gedöns: Aktualisieren, los, jetzt.

WordPress 5.1 - Betty ist da

Following WordPress 5.0 — a major release which introduced the new block editor — 5.1 focuses on polish, in particular by improving the overall performance of the editor. In addition, this release paves the way for a better, faster, and more secure WordPress with some essential tools for site administrators and developers.wordpress.org

Ich wartete hier in meiner Bloghütte ja mit dem Update auf die 5er WordPress Version, weil ich hier mit dem neuen Gutenberg Editor nix anfangen kann, und Never Run A Touchy System und so. Andererseits, ich habe den 'Classic Editor' bereits als Plugin aktiv, WP ist nun einen Schritt weiter ...

Syndicate some Blogposts from WordPress to Kirby with the REST API - Revisited

One year ago I established a connection between some blog posts here to my portal site via the WordPress REST API, a cron job, and some php-scripts.

This weekend I revisited the code, since there was one detail that kind of bugged me: The REST API treats "categories" as an OR condition; but for my use case I wanted an AND condition. I only want to show posts that have a combination of categories, like "english" AND "webdesign", but the API returns all posts having one of the two categories.

I have updated my portal site to the new Kirby 3 version recently, and that needed little tweaks here and there, and so I had a look at the blog teasers code. After reading the WordPress REST API documentation (again), I think there is no way to get this AND condition I wanted, so I had to refactor the code on the other end.

WordPress 5.0.2 Update

5.0.2 is a maintenance release that addresses 73 bugs. The primary focus of this release was performance improvements in the block editor: the cumulated performance gains make it 330% faster for a post with 200 blocks.

Wie bereits vermutet, ist die neue WordPress 5.0 noch so wackelig, dass innerhalb von zwei Wochen nach Release bereits zwei Updates veröffentlicht wurden. 5.0.2 ist 'nur' ein Maintenance release mit Verbesserungen, und diese betreffen hauptsächlich und wenig überraschend den neuen Editor.

WordPress 5.0.1 Security Update

State Of The Word - Matt Mullenweg @WordCamp US, Nashville

Is this talk the reason why WordPress 5.0 was released while its main new component, the Gutenberg editor, is regarded as not really production-ready by many?

When a big company like Automattic decides to prioritize a deadline they pluck out of thin air over enabling people with impairments to use the editor that they will be forced to use it is absolutely shocking. Even more shocking is the message that it sends out that accessibility compliance is not as important as flashy new featuressmashingmagazine.com

The figures Matt presents in this talk are impressive, the ...

WordPress 5.0 ist da

Seit gestern abend steht die neue, große WordPress Version zum Download bereit.

Mit an Board ist das, was wohl eine Revolution im Bereich der Inhalts-Editoren werden soll:
Der neue Editor "Gutenberg".

Webmention Semantic Linkbacks Facepile Display Hickup solved

(or: a hurray for open source)

Wow, what a headline! :-))

There was a tiny issue with the display of "webmention" reactions in my theme that annoyed me a little bit: On older posts, the summary of that post (for example in archive view or search results) would show in the meta-info something like "23 reactions" when this post had received comments or webmentions from other sources, like reposts or likes. but on the detail view, only comments were shown and the ammount of (visible) reactions didn't match the number stated in the meta-info. I have activated a WordPress default feature ...

WordPress Kommentare DSGVO konformer machen

Seit kurzem werden die IP-Adressen, die (m)eine WordPress-Installation standardmässig bei einem Kommentar abspeichert, vorher anonymisiert:

/* ---------------------------------------------------------------------
* IP Adressen anonymisieren in den Kommentaren
* --------------------------------------------------------------------- */
function wbr_anonymize_commentip( $comment_author_ip ) {
// ipv4: 123.234.111.222 => 123.234.xxx.xxx
// ipv6: ?
$out = preg_replace('/^(\d+\.\d+)\.\d+\.\d+$/i','$1.xxx.xxx',$comment_author_ip);
return $out;
}
add_filter( 'pre_comment_user_ip', 'wbr_anonymize_commentip' );

Das ist noch Work In Progress. Wenn man die IP komplett weg haben will, geht auch ein

/* ---------------------------------------------------------------------
* IP Adressen löschen in den Kommentaren
* --------------------------------------------------------------------- */
function wbr_delete_commentip( $comment_author_ip ) {
return '';
}
add_filter( 'pre_comment_user_ip', 'wbr_delete_commentip' );

Zwar habe ich noch ein Plugin am Start, welches die IPs nach einigen Tagen aus der DB löscht, aber ...
