Suggest topics for the September 3rd dev chat.
Jane Wells, Peter Westwood, Matt, and 1 other are discussing. Toggle Comments
Status check on the various features people said they’d work on for 2.9. Will dig up the list from chat a month and a half ago, hoping there’s been some progress.
I’ll do http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/10201 after the previous is committed.
Yoast working (and discussing with westi) on allowing login and register pages to be templated
Meaning — CSS?
No meaning as a template file like login.php
So you can completely intergrate the login into your CMS
With possibly other stuff on the page as well
I think we lose a lot of flexibility in future updates to the login system if we allow the login logic to be overwritten, I’ve seen numerous full integrations done using just CSS though. It’s trivial to change colors, replace logos, etc. It’s what CSS was designed to do.
I would be okay with a wp_login_form() template tag that could be embedded other places, though.
Trying to understand what we would lose with the following:
Refactor current login code to be template tag able
Allow a theme to completely change html using a login.php template file
Add pretty permalink support for the wp-login.php page.
As long as the themes are using the template tags we use in the default we have the same flexibility?
It’s being discussed right now in dev chat, just adding it here so will remember to include for post-meeting post.
