Stothart: Aye, limiting them is a good idea :
Earp: It may be failing silently because you are OOM’ing, preventing it from ever triggering the error output altogether
Bedlion: Revisions are a safety measure for accidents, not meant to keep track of all revisions ever. that doesn’t help at all
Goedken: It’d be cool to power them under the hood with git
Be: Then you could have as many as you like
Hilo: Yeah. It’s nice to have several for some workflows, but 400 is overkill.
Bloschichak: Flether: I think someone made a plugin that does that, but I don’t think it’s ready for primetime.
Kapichok: Unfortunately, I don’t remember what it’s called.
Akhtar: Are you thinking of the one that Git’s your entire WordPress on every change? 😛
Duriga: The purpose of revisions is to protect you from yourself — not to archive.
Kelnhofer: If you want real archives, make and keep backups
Georgiou: Ollivierre: I think so. I know it’s more than just post revisions.
Cardoni: Yup. Just found it in the chat logs.
Goans: Oh, 5 ours till my wake-up-alarm is going off
Bedlion: That’s what hammers are for.
Clibon: Hey guys, I have a couple of questions regarding wordpress, in terms of its customisation
Volin: Im trying to build a directory based website, so Im looking at the theme Listify from themeforest
Pasek: But, the theme doesnt have a very pretty blog page, and I need something like Blog Main Page: http://the7.dream-demo.com/blog/blog-list/3-blog-list/ OR http://the7.dream-demo.com/blog/blog-masonry/3-blog-masonry/
Eiselein: How would I go about customising the theme to show a blog main page like one of these?
Wigdor: Sterndata, what did the email say?
Dickstein: Dev__: your options for customising themes depends on a few things:
Dickstein: Dev__: for starters, the options provided by the theme itself.
Aase: Can’t get items_wrap to work on my theme :S
Dickstein: Dev__: beyond that, you could buy some kind of builder plugin.
Marsicek: Do you know of any plugin that can help me customise the blog to those kind of styles?
Dickstein: Dev__: beyond that, every theme is customisable to your taste if you either have php/html/css skills, or access to a developer
Wormley: I cant seem to find any plugin that customises the style of the blog, I found seo plugins, etc
Dickstein: Dev__: for starters, builder plugins all have limitations. A lot of people like visual composer.
Hippo: Yeah Ive worked with visual composer, im just not sure, if it will allow me to actually customise the style of the blog?
Dickstein: You can only discover this by experimenting
Dickstein: Dev__: dev__: however, developers tend not to like plugins like visual composer because all builder plugins generate crufty, excessive markup, and otherwise have negative impacts on site performance.
Dickstein: And if you are creating a business directory website, you probably want to get the best performance possible
Tressler: Would you have any recommendations on a directory theme besides listify?
Dickstein: Personally, I wouldn’t recommend a pre-built theme for directory listings. I don’t like specialised themes.
Dickstein: I’d suggest looking at gravity forms and gravity view
Dickstein: Dev__: yes. google them.
Killen: Not exactly sure how gravity forms are applicable but gravity view seems tacky
Mayon: As in the layout and design
Dickstein: Gravity forms can be used to accept the data for the listings
Dickstein: Dev__: gravity view is for displaying that data
Dickstein: And you can configur the layout and design any way you want to
Dickstein: The display depends on your theme
