WordPress 4.7.4 Maintenance Update

Gestern ist ein Wartungs- und Bugfixupdate von WordPress erschienen.

This release contains 47 maintenance fixes and enhancements, chief among them an incompatibility between the upcoming Chrome version and the visual editor, inconsistencies in media handling, and further improvements to the REST API.

Die Auto-Updates prasseln hier schon bei diversen Installationen rein; wie gewohnt gibt es die neue Version aber auch zum Download auf wordpress.org.

Sliding underline

In a current project, the designer asked if we could add a little gimmick to the horizontal navigation, which consists of just a few one-level items. Of course the idea is visual-, desktop-, and mouse-input-device-centric, and a discussion about other devices and the resulting state of the navigation ensued, and we agreed to treat this as a nice to have if everything else is cared for.
Nevertheless I was intrigued; would it be possible to animate a border to 'slide' from one menu item to the next on (mouse)over? So if you 'leave' the currently hovered item, the line should ...

Poster Rock – Malleus Rock Art Lab

Gestern hatte ich die Ehre und Gelegenheit, mit unserer Basssport-Gruppe in einer Galerie aufzubassen. Die Untergrund-Galerie in Neu-Isenburg hat eine Ausstellung zu "Icons Of Our Pop Culture", und neben Fotos von diversen Musikern, zu denen ich Affinität verspüre, gab es auch Grafik und Drucke diverser Machart... aber für mich noch interessanter, in einer Ecke waren eine Reihe von Drucken/Plakaten, die eigentlich nicht zur aktuellen Ausstellung gehören. Und da waren einige sehr SEHR schöne Motive von Malleus darunter. Ich bin ja ein großer Freund der Siebdruck-Poster und habe mittlerweile ...

Three things we need to change to save the web – Tim Berners-Lee

Happy Birthday, dear 'web'. 28 years: You are not going to join the 27 club, which is a good thing, but you picked up some bad habits recently.

(…) I imagined the web as an open platform that would allow everyone, everywhere to share information, access opportunities, and collaborate across geographic and cultural boundaries. In many ways, the web has lived up to this vision, though it has been a recurring battle to keep it open. But over the past 12 months, I’ve become increasingly worried about three new trends, which I believe we must tackle in order for

WordPress: nichts für "schnell mal eben" – Christian Fischer

WordPress Logo an die VW-Fabrik gephotoshopped

Nebenan im jawl.net Blog hat Christian einen sehr lesenswerten Artikel dazu geschrieben, warum die Vorstellung, dass man mit der berühmten "Fünf Minuten Installation" von WordPress, ein paar Plugins und einem Theme quasi im Handumdrehen eine Webseite am Start hat, mit Vorsicht zu geniessen ist.

Dieser Artikel ist nicht für Entwickler / Programmiererinnen geschrieben. Ich hoffe eher, dass er von Bloggern oder Bloggerinnen oder welchen, die es werden wollen, gelesen wird. Und von Menschen, denen jemand gesagt hat, man können mit WordPress „mal eben“ eine Website

Unintended files can be deleted

On Design Tools and Processes - Viljami Salminen

For the past year(s) I’ve been chasing for answers. Looking for new tools, thinking about design processes and figuring out what design really means to me. At times I’ve felt so disconnected with our pro­cesses that I’ve wondered if my career choice was right.
For a field rooted in the fine arts this period of change has been increasingly hard and is about to get even harder. We’ve moved away from designing static pages to creating digital systems of components, but we’ve done that mostly by using the same static design tools like Illustrator, Sketch, or even Figma. Tools

Accessibility, The Free Market, and Punching Nazis While Sitting Down – Heydon Pickering

By characterizing disability as a discrete ‘target’ group, the aim is to excuse the creation of products and services which do not cater for disability. “Oh I’m not making things for disabled people. But I’m sure someone else is, don’t worry. Such-and-such law of economics states it must be so.”

Disability does not work that way, though. It isn’t a discrete community or field of interest. It is complex, multifaceted and pervades all kinds of cultural identity through race, socio-economic level, gender identity, and faith. If you create an inaccessible product or service, you are almost guaranteed to be
