    What is your working environment? 

    I’ve actually wondered as to what most of us like to use when it comes to reviewing themes and possibly even creating themes.

    One thing I would like to see is the use of VVV. I know most of us have never tried it out or even heard of it but I feel we can all benefit from using it. Why? Because as the video states it does make it easier to be on the same page.

    I would love to see what you all use for your testing and development of themes. Or even plugins.

      It’s not QUITE there, but I’m getting close.


      I need to wrangle with rmmcue over how to best do a couple of things upstream in Puppet and then I’ll be ready for a beta release.

      I have been working on my own vagrant setup as well. I’m sure it’s not as extravagant as the one Zamoose is making (I’m building it with my personal development needs in mind), but i’ll post a link here once it’s release publicly.

        That’s awesome! Please do share when you have it done. :)

      I prefer localhost, but I am definitely trying out VVV.

      I pay for hosting, so using whatever subdomain I create for whatever project I need – also; it helps keeping a methodology that allows clients/users to see what i’m seeing if I link them, can’ setup vvv on my machine to handle that.

        We develope on our own localhost and have a demo server with wildcard domains. We have https://github.com/rtCamp/easyengine on server to create demo sites at subdomain using 1-command.

        As of now we are using Grunt, git and some shell script to sync changes from local to remote server sites. Soon we will add this to easyenigne (disclosure: I am from easyengine team).

        This approach help us use a single $5 digitalocean VPS for giving demo of 100 of sites. As soon work is finished, we delete sites using easyengine delete commands.

      I prefer localhost . but i try to use VVV.

    • tskk 10:49 am on February 12, 2014 Permalink

      I use web server, but local host seems to be preferred option.

    • Zulfikar Nore 8:24 am on February 13, 2014 Permalink

      For reviews I primarily use a live web server.

      For production its mainly localhost simply for the convenience of being able to readily access the files via explorer for edits.

      VVV looks interesting and some to start exploring soon.

    Tags: developers, support forum   

    Theme Developers: thanks to Otto, the WordPress.org Themes and Templates support forum now incorporates some features that have been available to Plugin support forums for some time:

    1) Support topics added using the “Write a new topic” link on a Theme’s Extend Listing page will now automatically be tagged with Theme Name, and the support topic subject appended with “[Theme: Theme Name]”.

    2) Support topics tagged with “Theme Name” will automatically be added to the Theme’s support forum.

    These changes will facilitate Theme developers keeping track of support topics for their Themes, and will facilitate support forum volunteers who attempt to resolve support topics in the Themes and Templates forum.

    So, please encourage your users to make use of these new features! Especially, encourage them to add support topics via your Theme’s Extend listing page.
