As you know, I’m working on enhancing profiles.wordpress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ as a part of GSoC’13 and this is my seventh weekly update regarding how things are going.
Once again, you can find my whole final schedule here: http://www.mertyazicioglu.com/2013/06/25/gsoc-2013-schedule-enhance-profiles-wordpress-org/
As you can see from the schedule, the things I was planning to complete by now was as follows:
July 28th – The new UI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing. of profiles (Better Representation of the Information, Links to Profiles on Other Sites and A Better Way to List Plugins) should be complete by now.
…and I’m once again happy to announce that this week’s task was also a success!
Before moving onto the profiles, I just want to give a quick update regarding the plugins we will be installing to plugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party and theme directories. I have just realised that I need to write special plugins for them as each have a different kind of workflow so here they are: new-plugin-notifier.php and new-theme-notifier.php! Needless to say, dotorg-activity-handler.php has also been updated to support these 2 new plugins.
Now I’m proud to present you the new profiles! 🙂
And the Edit screen where you edit the links to your profiles on other networks:
I’m really happy with how it turned out and sincerely looking forward to your comments.
See you after the midterm evaluations!
