Not much to report this week. Wrapping up as the pencils down date approaches. I did further UI work with Jane on the home page. I also did some code polishing. I will wrap the week up by doing a final sweep of the code and then enjoying a vacation in the mountains of WV. I'm very happy with how the project went and will have a beta version available once it is at that level. Be expecting future updates and developments on the project outside of … Read More

The template pack has been finished and I've tested it on a few different themes from the theme directory. It should be interesting to see how that is used and I'm glad that this feature was suggested. I also did my presentation on Friday. There were a lot of lurkers and a few questions asked. I've done the usual bug finding and fixing to make sure the code is solid. I have also been working with Jane on UI things. We have started on the home pag … Read More

Last week was a pretty busy week involving  some personal things and also work things unrelated to GSoC.  Of course I do have updates for this! I talked with the UI team in the meeting last Tuesday and will do so again tomorrow to see how the mockups are coming along.  I also did further work on the template pack plugin. It is pretty much done and only needs another day or so of work. Hopefully once that is done I will have a finalized UI to work … Read More

Theme Support (via WordPress Summer of Code 2010)

I heard a request from a few people last week about making the project easier to theme/change the look of etc. Orignally this was just going to be just child theme support and perhaps a control panel for easily changing around some colors. Jane had the idea during one of our chats to make a plugin similar to the BuddyPress Theme Pack. The new plugin would attempt to make any theme IdeaPress compatible with no edits to add the support. I've been w … Read More

The past week involved a lot of cleanup so there is not much visually to show. I went through to make sure that all the comments described the code and that the code was readable. I also caught a few bugs in the progress. I also completed my midterm evaluation. (Don't forget yours because Friday is the deadline!) In about 30 minutes I will be in participating in the UI chat where part of the agenda is to take a look at some of the home page  mock … Read More

The project is still progressing very well. I added some of the features Jane and I discussed in Chicago: Comments can be voted on. Comment voting looks just like solutions and ideas voting but will most likely look simpler when the UI changes are made. There is a special bookmarklet/favorites menu script that allows you to post an idea from any site. A closed and open filter has been added to the search system so we can view just open ideas if w … Read More

Last week was an awesome week. The workshops I mentioned before were quite successful, and I came out of the experience with some new knowledge, new contacts, and a new iPad. I also accomplished an amazing amount of work on the GSoC side of things. I finished 4 (yes 4) major points on my scope, which pretty much brings me to the end of my list of planned features. 1) I completed the report feature, which to the user will look like Craigslist repo … Read More

This past week I ended up being complete... This past week I ended up being completely swamped with work at the University. I've been involved for the past 2 years with a program through Kent State University that attempts to improve STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education in Ohio. Usually the program works with students. But a teacher workshop has been planned, and I have been involved with getting that set up. (Side note: This is pretty much the only other thin … Read More

This week I did three main things on the... This week I did three main things on the project. 1) I cleaned up the repository quite a bit. The project will include the base theme and some optional plugins, so I needed to move some things around. I now have two separate repositories. One is for the main "IdeaPress" theme (http://gsoc.svn.wordpress.org/2010/jshreve/ideapress/trunk/) and the other one is for the Trac plugin (http://gsoc.svn.wordpress.org/2010/jshreve/ideapress-trac-plugin/trunRead More

WordCamp Chicago (via WordPress Summer of Code 2010)

I apologize now for any typos in this post. I am writing this from a phone on a bus on my way back from Chicago to Cleveland. I do get to use the awesome WordPress iPhone app though! I did not get much done in terms of code this week – I did a little work in the admin for managing the roles/permissions for the many new features but still need to figure that out and do more work for it to be complete. No screenshots this week! The major thing for … Read More
