Testing the Full Site Editor

Full site editing is coming to WordPress soon, activated when using a theme that supports it.

I’m going to mess around with it, so switched my theme over to a blocked-version of Twenty Twenty One Armando.

It’s probably a bit of a mess because I’m not trying to make sure it’s pretty at this point, just wanting to get my hands dirty. Hope you enjoy my little sandbox.

CSS Naked Day

I learned from Dries, founder of Drupal, that today is “CSS Naked Day” which encourages site owners to disable all CSS. You can read more about it on the day’s site.

Here’s a quick and dirty snippet to add to a WordPress site to enable it.

function bk_is_naked_day($d) {
  $start = date('U', mktime(-12, 0, 0, 04, $d, date('Y')));
  $end = date('U', mktime(36, 0, 0, 04, $d, date('Y')));
  $z = date('Z') * -1;
  $now = time() + $z; 
  if ( $now >= $start && $now <= $end ) {
    return true;
  }
  return false;
}

function bk_remove_all_css(){
    global $wp_styles;
	if ( bk_is_naked_day( 9 ) ) {
        $wp_styles->queue = array();
	}
}

add_action( 'wp_print_styles', 'bk_remove_all_css', 99 );

function bk_announce_naked_day() {

	if ( bk_is_naked_day( 9 ) ) {
	echo "<p><i>🔥 Why does my website look so <strong>naked</strong>? April 9th is <a href='https://css-naked-day.github.io/'>CSS naked day</a>.  I'm participating to help promote web standards, including the proper use of HTML, semantic markup and more. I'm also using it as an opportunity to find out where I can improve the HTML on the site.</i></p>";
	}
}

add_action( 'wp_body_open', 'bk_announce_naked_day' );

A facelift‽‽‽

Indeed. I switched the site over to the very alpha, raw, unfinished version of Twenty Twenty, the upcoming default theme that will be released with a future version of WordPress.

Over the years, I’ve found the best way to find and fix bugs with the default themes is to use it on a site you actively care about. Or your slightly neglected personal site. Either way. 😉

Keeping It Clean

I went through my debug log tonight, which had been a bit long mainly due to older plugins throwing warnings in PHP 7.

Of four plugins generating PHP 7 warnings, two had merged-but-unreleased fixes, one has a pending PR that I could apply and confirm working, and wrote a PR for the last one.

Clean logs here I come!

Same site, only blog-ier: Introducing kraft.blog

I flipped my site over last night to live officially at kraft.blog. In addition to being a more accurate domain name than “kraft.im”, it’s also a bit easier to say and share with folks.

No offense to the Isle of Man—the country for whom .im belongs—I’ve spread your fame far and wide in sharing my URL before. I’m still planning on visiting someday.

This site has always been a blog since it started in 2002. It seems to be a format I’m sticking with, so let’s call a spade a spade, eh?
