WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 295 – Turkey With A Side of Gutenberg and Giving Thanks to Open Source

WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 295 – Turkey With A Side of Gutenberg and Giving Thanks to Open Source

I apologize for the delay in getting this episode out to you. In this episode, John James Jacoby and I discussed a range of topics, including a caching bug introduced in WordPress 4.9 that causes Page Templates not to display for an hour. We talk about the possibilities of using Gutenberg with WooCommerce and how it could impact product management.

As is tradition, near the end of the show, we shared what we’re thankful for. We also shared what listeners are thankful for regarding open source.

Stories Discussed:

This bug is causing some theme developers to rip their hair out. Weston Ruter explains why the change was implemented.
WooCommerce Explores the Possibilities and Challenges for E-Commerce in the Gutenberg Era
Tailor Page Builder Plugin Discontinued, Owners Cite Funding, Gutenberg, and Competition
WordCamp Europe 2018 Speaker Applications Now Open
GitHub Launches Security Alerts for JavaScript and Ruby Projects, Python Support Coming in 2018

Picks of the Week:

Trigger Happy developed by Hotsource is a visual scripting tool for WordPress, allowing you to connect plugins and events together using a simple user interface. It currently supports core WordPress functionality, WooCommerce, and Ninja Form.

Big dummy is a project for folks who need to emulate an established blog with plenty of content while doing WordPress benchmarking and performance testing.

There are 2495 posts, 6197 comments, 231 tags, 26 categories, and 10 pages worth of WordPress dummy data, fully ready to import. That’s 3 (simulated) years worth of content. Note: There are ~1.6 GB of images (courtesy of Unsplash) attached to these posts. It’s a very good idea to import everything but the media in order to avoid timeouts or errors with the WordPress Importer.
