Description

In way I am happy that Wordpress works. Of sorts. It is a versatile piece of software. It is amazing how many things you can create with it.

But the process of making anything more complex work in Wordpress is excrutiatingly painful.

The concept of plugins is wonderful. But currently the plugins have full access to the browser. They need to run inside Wordpress. Wordpress would need to provide the environment for as much code as possible. It's the only chance of minimizing js and and css conflicts.

Currently everybody can submit a plugin and the only hope of making all components work together is hoping that progammers are sticking to at least some conventions. Bottomline: it is down to luck.

I'd love to get involved. But to be quite honest, I have tried making some contributions with another browser based software before. It didn't go anywhere. My general impression of the age of browser based software: the only thing that matters is implementing features. The more the better.

Minimizing pain on getting things to run together is an art. But it doesn't seem to rank very highly on the list of priorities.

I'd love to get involved. But these are not cosmetic changes. So I don't know where to start and if there's a chance of anything changing on that level in the first place.

So. There it is.

Thanks for listening,
Peter

Can you give a list of problems to solve? This is pretty vague.
