Bugs & Features


  1. (bug) Social media buttons: allow the user to enable/disable single buttons
  2. (feature request) Social media buttons: add support for Flattr


  1. Add a widget for FSFE member introduction (a sort of mini-profile)
  2. Fix display of <code> and <pre> elements in post content. (see next item as well)

  3. Implement fitting custom style for the WP-Syntax plugin, and remove clutter when plugin is activated.


  1. Apparently, Twitter changed something, since "Error while loading Twitter feed." messages are popping up all over the place. The built-in Twitter widget needs to be fixed.

  2. (Fixed: marklindhout @ 2012-11-29) The inserted post galleries are broken. Alignment is strange, and amount of photo's per line aren't followed.


  1. (Fixed: marklindhout @ 2012-11-21) Images in the content column are not scaled to width of that column. This results in overflow, which can disrupt the layout.

  2. (Fixed: marklindhout @ 2012-11-21) Comments are erroneously displayed in a <dialog> element. This should be changed to conform to the (very loose) HTML5 specification on the subject:

  3. (Fixed: marklindhout @ 2012-11-21) RSS-feeds aren't working correctly. This seems to have something to do with the header and some missing feed calls.

  4. The built-in social media profile plugin should be adapted to allow for freeform input of links to profiles.
  5. The built-in social media profile plugin should store all data in one database-field, not in many. See the WordPress guidelines for building a plugin at:

  6. box-shadow on container frame not tested yet in older browsers. (those with shady CSS3 support.)

  7. (Fixed: marklindhout @ 2012-11-21) Social Media on post pages is not styled very well.

  8. We need a dynamic, multilevel Javascript drop-down menu that gracefully degrades. The one we have now only half works (no level-3 support, no usable HoverIntent)

  9. (Fixed: marklindhout @ 2012-11-29) Category pages need better styling: add date, tags, author.
