Re: Marketing TXP

I wasn’t aware about Matthew either, haven’t spoken to him for a couple of weeks or so, but if he is offering to do the design then I would be perfectly happy to do a “live” mock-up from his PSDs which would include TXP coding, XHTML and CSS. I’m am very used to working with him in this way. I could host it temporarily in a subdirectory of thebombsite so everyone can have a good play with it.

I should reiterate Patrick’s point that Matthew is a busy lad these days which is probably why he doesn’t get to the forum too often.

Re: Marketing TXP

Patrick, Stuart.

Yes, I know both of you often work with Matthew and for sure you know the quality of his work. I behaved like a troll. I’ve edited my post (deleted its content) .
I must avoid this kind of friction next time.

Just to switch the focus to another direction (don’t look at me, still ashamed):

The Warhorse is willing to help not just with the TxB but with the copy of the main site.
I’m not sure if “copy” means exactly “the text” (and “to make it cool”), but I like the way the Warhorse writes and express ideas (and explain ideas from others), so +1 for him.

He may be the cure for the content-delay syndrome.

On wet’s comment about writing, I think this is a huge point. I was asking my designer co-workers why they chose WP since TXP is much more targeted to them.

Not to bitch on others work – but: WP disables desktop blogging in WP 2.6 (due July), and receives: praises for establishing a more secure platform. Guys: Make More Waves! Publish! Tweet! Blog!

Re: Marketing TXP

It’s disabled by default, as it should have always been, as opposed to removed completely.

Re: Marketing TXP

Good pointer Robert. I was planning to write something about TXP when 4.0.7 hit the streets but WP’s consistent insecurity deserves a mention or two or maybe a hundred mentions or two methinks. I’m sure they’d bitch about TXP if we had similar problems.

Mary – I think the real point is why do they think it is insecure? Is it the usual rushed-out coding? And let’s face it, whether they consider themselves a CMS or not, they are certainly a major blogging tool and shouldn’t desktop blogging be a part of such a tool by default?

Re: Marketing TXP

When you install a typical linux distribution, they don’t have all services up-and-running and listening on ports either by default (at least not nowadays). It’s not because they know it’s insecure, but to lower the risks when an security bug is discovered.
Of course, it doesn’t matter for those that actually use XMLRPC, because those people will have it enabled anyway, but… those that don’t use it, how many would actually disable it? And of those people, how many neglect to update regularly? Disabling by default protects these users.

Re: Marketing TXP

But by way of reversing that aren’t we going to be shipping xmlrpc by default with 4.0.7? How come we feel safe enough to do that and they don’t? Of course I am fully aware that if you don’t require the facility you can remove the folder but how many will do that?. And this is totally OT.

Re: Marketing TXP

BTW Jon Hicks’ TXP vs EE made the front page of Daring Fireball.
