Only a small update this week. Most of this week has either been spent revising for my exams or waiting for the computer to finish drive images (My main hard drive decided to fail, spent 2-3 days either backing up, or letting it attempt drive images, nothing could image the drive though), not to mention trying to get apache and php playing nice again after the re-install
WhatsÂ beenÂ acomplishedÂ thisÂ week.
NotÂ tooÂ much,Â SomeÂ FTPÂ FilesystemÂ wasÂ writtenÂ andÂ tested,Â Â Some more theme installation stuff was added in, it should now accept a better range of archive layouts(the folders within the archive, it still only accepts .zip files)
HopefullyÂ i’llÂ manageÂ someÂ timeÂ onÂ theÂ weekendÂ toÂ writeÂ someÂ moreÂ code,Â Â Or at least a chance to think about how to perform theme/plugin upgrades..
WhatÂ i’dÂ likeÂ toÂ accomplishÂ nextÂ week
to StartÂ theÂ pluginÂ installationÂ code,Â orÂ improveÂ theÂ themeÂ installÂ codeÂ more,Â Â I’m mainly focusing on theme installation at present and then planning on porting most of the code over Â to the plugin installation routine, It’ll be very similar in the end.
I’dÂ alsoÂ likeÂ toÂ cleanÂ upÂ theÂ logicÂ forÂ determingÂ whatÂ toÂ displayÂ forÂ theÂ updateÂ status,Â atÂ presentÂ itsÂ codeÂ duplicated in both plugins.php and ..-ajax.php. I also need to start documenting the arrays used within the class and add PHPDoc comments to functions.
InÂ addition,Â TheÂ stuffÂ iÂ didntÂ getÂ doneÂ thisÂ lastÂ weekÂ getsÂ shuntedÂ intoÂ nextÂ weeksÂ timeÂ slotsÂ too:
re-codeÂ olderÂ stuffÂ ifÂ needÂ be,Â Â add nonces to options panel, continue on the filesystme code.
EventsÂ ofÂ late
Well winters setting in, Its bloody cold to say the least in this house.. Next wednesday (13th) i have by first exam, followed by another 2 on the 20th and 21st, which’ll mark the end of semester for me finally :)
HopefullyÂ i’llÂ haveÂ moreÂ newsÂ andÂ workÂ onÂ theÂ pluginÂ doneÂ byÂ thenÂ too.
OhÂ andÂ also,Â IsÂ thereÂ anyoneÂ outÂ thereÂ currentlyÂ using/testingÂ theÂ plugin?Â I’dÂ appreciateÂ commentsÂ fromÂ anyoneÂ whoÂ isÂ testingÂ itÂ asÂ iÂ go,Â Â I try to keep my svn as stable as possible,Â butÂ notÂ allÂ codeÂ pathsÂ areÂ usedÂ whenÂ i’mÂ testing,Â andÂ itsÂ tooÂ muchÂ ofÂ aÂ painÂ toÂ FTPÂ myÂ codeÂ ontoÂ myÂ webhost/linuxÂ machineÂ allÂ theÂ timeÂ toÂ test..
