With a new leash of life comes a new opportunity to beg/bribe/coerce us into considering your very best script ideas. So if you’ve had a brilliant idea bubbling for awhile but don’t know where to start, why not post it here and see if it’s something we just might consider?March 3, 2011 at 10:13 pm #14147
What Vixx means is, post your idea and she’ll beat me with sticks until I make it :pMarch 3, 2011 at 10:14 pm #14148
^ Yup, pretty much. See how much power I have, people? JEM IS MY BIATCH.March 6, 2011 at 5:36 pm #14149
I think it’d be neat if the entire community created a blogging script together. It could be like WordPress, except it wouldn’t need to be infinitely unorganized.March 6, 2011 at 6:58 pm #14150
^ I think I read something similar to that on clientsfromhell.net >_>March 6, 2011 at 7:14 pm #14151
^ WordPress is extremely unorganized, I use it and I find it to be okay, but it could use major revamps…hahaMarch 6, 2011 at 7:59 pm #14152
If you mean the admin interface, there are tonnes of tutorials, and I think even a plugin or two which help you change that.
As for the way to use the code: well now WP has one of the most extensive and well organized documentations I’ve seen. And I worked with other CMS which were supposed to be more widely used (Joomla, Typo3).
Aside that, there are a lot of other more lightweight alternatives present. For example, Jem swears by Habari. I think smashingmagazine.com has a list of new up and coming CMS every month or so, at the very least.
IMO, building one ourselves is not necessarily the best idea.March 6, 2011 at 8:17 pm #14153
I mean function lexicon and programming styles. I feel it’s the functions’ names don’t have a common ground, they have camel case, underscore and mushed-together ones, which bugs me. I also dislike the coding style, I’m a huge MVC freak, so haha. Well, I suppose that’s a pretty big project anyway. hahaMarch 6, 2011 at 8:28 pm #14154
^ you’re free to code your own plugins any way you want to. I use OOP and MVC to code my own projects as well.
As for the programming style being kind of a mess, well that’s to be expected when it’s an open source project contributed to by lots of people.
By function lexicon you mean the wordpress codex? What do you find unorganized about that? It’s full of references to similar functions, plus pages with references to all like minded functions. Not to mention external links to some brilliant tutorials. For example, when I was looking for documentation on plugin development, I was amazed by the amount of step by step tutorials I found.
If that’s difficult you’ve never looked at PHP.net.March 6, 2011 at 8:33 pm #14155
^ No, I mean how they name functions. I dislike the way they do. It lacks organization, etc., but like you said, it is open source.March 7, 2011 at 9:36 am #14156
Casey, if code organisation is your thing, you need to look at HabariMarch 7, 2011 at 11:13 am #14157
^ I will, I’ve been interested in it for a while, thanks for the suggestion.
