WordPress.org Theme Review Process is Broken

Update: The Eru­dite 3.0.2 is now live on WordPress.org. I’ve already crit­i­cized the WordPress.org Theme Review process when it first launched. Things seemed to be improv­ing, but either the team is poorly orga­nized, severely under-powered, or both. The Eru­dite 3.0 has been in review for 3 months, 3.0.2 since Sept 28. The review ticket was assigned […]

FontFriend 3.2 Released: Now With More Google

When I released Font­Friend 3.1, I men­tioned that Google Web Fonts didn’t have a proper API, mak­ing things dif­fi­cult. They still don’t have a pub­lic API, but on Thurs­day I was given “trusted tester” access to the new API.

FontFriend 3.0 Released

I’ve set up a demo page with Font­Friend embed­ded and a big Type­kit kit. My main imag­ined use-case for this feature […]

The Erudite 2.7 Released

Word­Press 3.0 was released last week (and there was much rejoic­ing). I received a few bug reports about my inte­gra­tion with the new nav menus — essen­tially if you didn’t have a nav menu in use yet, you’d see a weird extra box in your main menu area. I also did the long-overdue task of combing […]
