Re: Live YouTube chat on TXP

I finally had the opportunity to run this in full length. Thanks for being our host, and for moderating so brilliantly the mess a text chat usually is, Hilary, been a fun to watch!

Here is what I could grab, thematically, and put into a kind of index (number equals minute).

02: Pat64’s Simplr mobile template
04: Theme-ing
05: Upgrading TXP/PHP
07: Themes & plugins website overhaul
08: Get active and fix/re-contribute broken/orphaned plugins!
09, 12+: Shortcodes (e.g. for creating sitemaps)
10: “Three reasons for choosing TXP over WP”
13: Global parameters for tags
14: New header tag
17: Procedere for uploading and adding images to articles
20: Lean core + plugin extensions
21, 22: Controversy on image handling
25, 26: 29.200 images, 16 years of archive, (18.000+ articles) on one TXP site
28: Security
29: ModX
30,32: Drupal, Cold Fusion
31: “snippet”?
32: “form” is too deeply ingrained to get away from
33+: Shortcodes/forms
36: Live streaming
38: Joomla
39: Expression Engine
40: “Paying homage” to EE’s custom fields
41: Custom fields
43: Customizing custom fields (in core)
44: WP’s “Gutenberg”
45: Custom fields improvements are slated for 4.8
46: HTML5
48: Stef’s widget library (HTML5 widgets from custom fields)
50: builder library re-written
53: Stef’s real-life contribution
54: The TXP community

Re: Live YouTube chat on TXP

In case anyone was wondering, the “Forms” vs “Snippets” thread can be found here: WTF do we need form types for?

As for Gutenberg, the core functionality is that it separates everything (mostly paragraph) into Blocks which can be styled individually. Which is kinda sorta similar to what Hilary proposed in Could be crazy – but multiple body fields

Re: Live YouTube chat on TXP

Hey all, sorry I didn’t make it to the recent live chat – I will try to be there for the next one if planned. I’ll watch the archived video soon to see what happened. Cheers Hilary for hosting it, too!

Re: Live YouTube chat on TXP

I’ve watched the transcript-video now and you did that brilliantly, hilary! I wouldn’t have been able to talk for an hour bringing in everyone’s input so gallantly like you did! It would be great to have a multi-user chat at some point, though I guess it’s harder to manage the conversation. It’d be even nicer if not on gargle and co; maybe that rocket.chat idea needs pursuing.

Re: Live YouTube chat on TXP

There are a few services which do not require registration but admittedly I have not used any of them. talky.io looks OK.

Re: Live YouTube chat on TXP

Nice find, Yiannis. Although I’ve not tried them either, Rabbit and Appear.in seem to offer the most users, though they all seem to require signup now. Not a major barrier, imo.

Don’t know about self-host solutions. Bandwidth requirements would be pretty heavy I expect.

Re: Live YouTube chat on TXP

Some of our partners use appear.in but it needs registration and payment for conferences with over 4 participants. Admittedly it works very well but I have no account.
