Hint, Tips & Tricks  - 
 
When you are searching for a new web #hosting provider, ask them what PHP and MySQL versions they offer. You want version 5.5 for both.
If they don’t say anything about that, or if they refuse to offer that – stay away.

You will get problems if you forget that, and your site will be much slower than it should be. 

Some web hosting providers promote themselves as optimized for WordPress, but all they do is some crazy caching which results in broken or difficult updates for plugins, themes and core.

Hey, Thanks for spreading the word. :)

About WPSE, I've looked at it a little bit. Searching on it is quite easy. 

I'm thinking we could do better integration. I noticed that WPSE has excellent tagging. Mapping keywords/word under cursor to these tags might be a better way to go?

Somewhat similar to the :Wtopics ex command, which shows topics for keyword on Wordpress.org. So :Wexchange, would list best answers with that tag, etc. 

I've put this on the TODO. If you have further ideas how this should work, you can open an issue on GitHub. :)

Programming Tips  - 
 
A short description of my local WordPress installation. I develop on the latest trunk and test backwards compatibility by switching to older branches.

How do you handle compatibility problems? How many older versions do you support? Do you make a difference between free and commercial plugins or themes?

+Thomas Scholz  Works fine so far. Wish they would have responded to my request for auto-including an author byline option (especially with Google Authorship a big deal for some) instead of leaving it for a plugin to handle.

About this community  - 
 
On infographics

We don’t have very detailed content rules, and I hope we don’t need them. But there is one type of content I want to have a new rule for: infographics¹.

Some present content in a new, interesting way, they reveal patterns visually which we might have missed until now. OK.

But many, too many in the last time, just put known facts into fancy fonts and colors (X versus WordPress, Top X plugins²). Let’s call them KF-graphics.

Why is that a problem?

1. They don’t add value. I know, this is rather subjective. But there should be something new besides the fonts and colors in an infographic. The Wikipedia page cites Edward Tufte’s rules; they are a good guideline.

2. They circumvent our rule about self-promotion. You will notice the URL or the name of some company on almost every KF-graphic. When there is no real clickable link in the same post, our link sharing guidelines don’t apply. Or do they? This isn’t clear enough.

3. They move the real content down in the stream. Your questions, security notes and cool tricks are more important than any infographic. We are a discussion group.

I would like to add the following rule to our About box:

Infographics are allowed if their content cannot be expressed in simple words. You must disclose your affiliation to all web sites or institutions mentioned on the image.

If you have any objections, use the comments below.
