In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I travel to Singapore to interview Lester “GaMerZ” Chan. Chan has 23 different plugins in the plugin directory, amassing an incredible total download count of 12,241,325! This accounts for approximately 1.6% of all plugin downloads from the directory.
This release was led by Helen Hou-Sandí, with the help of many other fine individuals. There are 275 contributors with props in this release which is a new high.
Matt Mullenweg who is the co-founder of WordPress and founder of Automattic stop by Singapore on the 4th June 2014 as part of his Summer Tour which includes cities like Seoul, Jakarta, Singapore, Tokyo, Osaka, Manila, Melbourne, Sydney, Wellington and Auckland.
I knew Matt since b2 days but never had a chance to met him till he came to Singapore! And of course, a picture with him is compulsory!
It’s sale price is only US$10 (including free US Shipping) till 27th May 2013. For shipping to Singapore, I paid US$14.65. So in total I Paid US$10 (S$12.43) + US$14.65 (S$18.21) = US$24.65 (S$30.65)
I launched lesterchan.net v3.0 on the 5th June 2008. More than 4 years later, it is time for a change in design/layout. I decided to go back to the light color theme because it is easier to match colors and icons.
Welcome to lesterchan.net v4.0. It is built using Boostrap with icons from Fatcow and the new logo is done by Li Xiang. Because it is built using Bootstrap, lesterchan.net now incorporates responsive design.
WordPress 3.0 named “Thelonious” has been released.
WordPress 3.0, the thirteenth major release of WordPress and the culmination of half a year of work by 218 contributors, is now available for download (or upgrade within your dashboard). Major new features in this release include a sexy new default theme called Twenty Ten. Theme developers have new APIs that allow them to easily implement custom backgrounds, headers, shortlinks, menus (no more file editing), post types, and taxonomies. (Twenty Ten theme shows all of that off.) Developers and network admins will appreciate the long-awaited merge of MU and WordPress, creating the new multi-site functionality which makes it possible to run one blog or ten million from the same installation. As a user, you will love the new lighter interface, the contextual help on every screen, the 1,217 bug fixes and feature enhancements, bulk updates so you can upgrade 15 plugins at once with a single click.
This site can be considered running on a dedicated server as it only host 30 other domains which belongs to friends and families of both Michael and I. This server is housed at M1 Connect (previously known as Qala). It has 1mbps guaranteed and 10mbps burstable bandwidth.
I also have a backup server provided by Vodien Internet Solutions which I will rysnc to manually every week.
Here is my June 2009 WordPress plugins update containing all my 16 WordPress plugins update. All of them should work on WordPress 2.8 as I did not test them on any WordPress version below that.
Now my plugins uses jQuery for AJAX instead of TW-Sack. I have also updated the widget code to make use of the new WordPress 2.8 new Widget class and that supports multi-instances widgets. The widget code has now been merge with the main plugin file so the standalone widget plugin file is no longer in use. Please delete the whole plugin folder and upload it again to avoid any error.
