Content Expiry Widget for Dashboard

for helleniccentre.org

A Dashboard box to remind content editors of upcoming expiry dates of pages, posts and custom content.

As Yes we work, we designed and built the Hellenic Centre’s website, which includes a community-focused classified ads section. People pay to place an ad on the notice board for a month or a year at a time, but old adverts were rarely removed because their durations and expiry dates weren’t surfaced. We added a new widget / box to our Fabrica Dashboard plugin to highlight expired content so the editors can easily keep the site tidy and up-to-date (as well as maintain ad revenue).

Fabrica Pending Revisions

for WikiTribune.com

A draft / moderation queue for Post revisions gives Editors control over updates to published content. Also ensures that the Editors are accountable for the site’s content.

Fabrica Pending Revisions was built for Jimmy Wales’ WikiTribune project. It was designed to allow the community to freely suggest updates and improvements to stories, while ensuring that editors had control over which edits made it through to the site (so mistakes could be corrected and vandalism stopped). Beyond that original usage, we found it also responded to the following needs:

  • edit Posts when it suits you, publish the changes later (e.g. after an embargo or launch date)
  • ensure updates by contributors or authors are checked by editors or legal teams before publication
  • allow community contribution with less risk of inadvertently publishing trolling / vandalism

Developed for, and open-sourced in partnership with, WikiTribune in 2017. You can read more about this project on Medium. Work would need to be done in order to make the plugin fully compatible with WordPress 5.0’s Block Editor.

Fabrica Collaborative Editing

for WikiTribune.com

Radical openness! No more single user lock: let multiple people edit the same Post at the same time.

Fabrica Collaborative Editing was developed for Jimmy Wales’ WikiTribune project in order to make WordPress wiki-like, by allowing multiple people to independently edit the same page at the same time:

  • no more waiting to edit; no taking over posts from other users who might be mid-edit
  • distraction-free, independent simultaneous editing (i.e. not Google Docs -like)
  • no forking: if edit conflicts arise, users can see and merge changes before saving
  • can be switched on/off for Posts, Pages, Custom Post Types or for single items

Developed for, and open-sourced in partnership with, WikiTribune in 2017. You can read more about this project on Medium. Work would need to be done in order to make the plugin fully compatible with WordPress 5.0’s Block Editor.

Mi Librería

for Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial

Add a ‘further reading’ selection of books to a blog post.

Developed for Penguin Random House, this plugin allows a blogger to add a selection of “further reading” book suggestions to a blog post.

  1. Automatically finds keywords in the post (or the author manually assigns them).
  2. Retrieves a selection of books related to those keywords from the PRH catalogue, and returns key data, cover image, synopsis, etc.
  3. You choose which of the books to share with readers,
  4. Your selection is added to the bottom of the post.

Team and Quote Blocks

for atlasofthefuture.org

Add nicely-formatted, reusable pull-quotes and personal profiles/biographies to posts and sidebars.

The presentation of both these block-like elements needed consistency yet some variety, but the editors didn’t want to have to copy-paste or maintain delicate HTML and CSS between posts, so we built plugins that would set up custom post types and their custom fields, manage the template code and responsive styling, and output a shortcode that could be added anywhere in any post, bringing some of the advantages of the Gutenberg editor to a site that can’t yet switch to WP 5.

PRHGE Book Importer

for Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial

Quickly imports catalogue data from the company’s main database to their public-facing WordPress sites.

Over a period of 8 years working for Penguin Random House as Yes we work, we’ve designed and developed many marketing and sales websites which needed to present a specific subset of information from the company’s vast catalogue of books, ebooks and audiobooks.

So that the teams managing the sites could avoid time-consuming copy-pasting or error-prone data entry, we built plugin which can search their catalogue database via API and create new content inside any of their WordPress sites with just a few clicks.
