So the new verson of WordPress has arrived. With it came a new theme: Twenty Seventeen. It’s an attempt to combine the (perhaps too) popular “one-pager” with WordPress content-managing.
The theme has many interesting features. One important addition is the .svg icon theme. These days the SVG format becomes more and more important. Twenty Seventeen may be a proof of concept here.
Of course I had to try the theme. The design style is “big image” or even “big video” if you dare to use that option.
The theme has improved greatly since the beginning in october 2016. The process began on Github. Here a team from Automattic co-worked with the WordPress open source community. 68 participants or more gave input and suggested code.
When the theme was ready for the core it moved to Slack. In the end it was integrated in the wordpress-core code.
So how do yo find the most popular cake in the Shire Bakery? Here’s an idea.
-- Show the best cookie
-- See: Ben Forta Chap. 16
SELECT COUNT( cakes.cake ) AS 'popular', cakes.cake, costumers.who
FROM cakes, costumers, likes
-- sort out the cardinalities (relations)
WHERE cakes.cakes_id = likes.cakes_id
AND costumers.costumers_id = likes.costumers_id
-- group by the cake
group by cakes.cake
-- and sort (most popular and downwards)
order by popular desc
Another solution for WordPress is to use an iframe in code tags:
