Caraker: Before you do that tho, let’s all guess at the number of results
Bahr: 25% of the internet is WP
Bahr: I would say 100k+ easy
Ziemann: Yeah you’re probably right
Warshauer: Filipovich what is your guess
Bahr: To be fair some of those are videos to “how to remove”
Filipovich: Of sites built with CMS, WP has 40% http://trends.builtwith.com/cms
Filipovich: So the truth is probably bounded by these estimates
Filipovich: The latter also gives WP 24.6% of all websites
Yanke: Would be cool with like a modules system for themes where the modules are plugin dependencies
Yanke: Cause sometimes **** to make a theme and nee a plugin fo a function to remain pure
Filipovich: Bahr: after you get past the 3 page of results, they all seem to be the default site description on the front page, probably in the title tag
Filipovich: Poiz: there’s a framework for that — it will tell the user to install needed plugins. can’t think of the name offhand, though
Bahr: Doesnt WP have that built in
Bahr: Or is it an added framework
Filipovich: Poiz: http://tgmpluginactivation.com/
Yanke: Oh right that sounds great thank you
Bahr: Filipovich: ahh didn’t realize that was 3rd party
Bahr: Everday. knowledge ha
Yanke: Seem to have thought of everything in this plugin too, activation/deactivation and required/not required etc very nice
Desmet: If someone steal my wordpress cookie, will he can use it if we have different IP addresses?
Filipovich: El capitan progress: 4.4GB of 6.1GB downloaded.
Meggison: Q: can widgets only be added to sidebars via the gui ?
Raskin: Can devs designate other “targets” in templates so users can drop a widget in other places ?
Gladysz: Nak wouldn’t that be just registering a new dynamic sidebar?
Filipovich: Nak: sidebars can go anywhere. think of theme as “widget holders”. You can put them in headers, footers, above the content, below teh content, etc.
Filipovich: I usually put a “sidebar” to hold footer content.
Filipovich: Nak https://github.com/Filipovich/riviera/blob/master/footer.php
Rosebaugh: So if i wanted a three column site where the client could reorganize all the content, i could create 3 dyanmic sidebars for them to move the widgets around ?
Guitian: So a “dynamic sidebar” is just a widget container
Filipovich: Yup. I like this plugin to let the users control the content: https://----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/plugins/black-studio-tinymce-widget/
Gervais: How do you guys give control over content layout to your users? besides the wordpress “alignleft, alignright” i’ve begun to implement custom shortcodes to do things like grid columns, buttons, icons, cards, and other components. but the users still struggle with shortcodes, and want a more ‘squarespace’ way of adding content
Gone: Visual Compoiser if they need squarespace like behavior
Wichert: PErsonally, I don’t give them layout control beyond what I code my self for them, by page templates and such
Kennamer: Ive looked into this, from what i’ve read it has to be used with a compatible theme?
Draves: No bueno, trying to look for a solution that doesn’t involve migrating to another theme
Filipovich: Conrman: we sell and implement a design, so we do not give them much in the way of layout control.
Erath: Conrman: if a client wants a fully custom solution, then layout control is / should be out of their hands.
