@markjaquith What in the heck is that?
@chip_bennett That was the one you forked way back due to being kicked off the repo. right?
@chip_bennett I never read those. I just click and hope for the best 🙂
@chip_bennett Code improvements are always appreciated 🙂
@chip_bennett If it'd been network activated I'd have written an upgrade script for it. Upgrading thousands of blogs would be bad 😉
@chip_bennett I was deploying it on a multisite network. Thankfully it wasn't used in many places.

@ipstenu I've turned it off for 60 secs and had a site indexed by Google. They take weeks to remove it, but they still obey it, eventually.
@ipstenu Truthfully, all the important ones do 😉
@ipstenu Yup, I found that straight away. It makes more sense there. Less cluttered. Confused the bajeesus out of me for a few mins though.
That confusing moment when you realise you aren't going (more) crazy, and they have indeed removed options-privacy.php from WordPress.

@JellyBeen I have mine on a twice daily cron to make sure I'm always up to date.
@k0nsl @ldebrouwer @JellyBeen Seems to be working fine for me.
@k0nsl @ldebrouwer @jellybeen @SiobhanPMcKeown @JellyBeen I'm yet to run into anything but minor problems running my live site on trunk.
The cool kids are all running WordPress 3.6 now 🙂 @JellyBeen
@JellyBeen Thanks. You just made me go check and realise I'm still on RC2! I think my Cron is broken.
@janeforshort @ipstenu I noticed that too.
I sense an official release of WordPress 3.5 coming on.
@fondalashay I think amusement over practicality is in action there 🙂
Lolz, check out the 404 page from @Bensmann … http://thomas.bensmann.no/404
@PauldeWouters No. I'm completely stuck with that.
@dinicmilan I've been looking in there for about 5 mins 🙂
@PauldeWouters The WP Native Dashboard triggers an error when I try to use the frontend admin bar setting'
@dinicmilan I'm trying to figure that out just now. Help would be appreciated 🙂
@PauldeWouters @Rarst Not sure. I forgot about that plugin so will go try it out later. Thanks for pointing it out.
@miss_jwo Yep, I tried that too. No matter what I do on those hooks, they appear to have not happened when the menu is built.
@miss_jwo I'm filtering with locale(), but no matter what I set at wp_before_admin_bar_render(), I can't detect it at locale().
@noeltock I am confused.
@miss_jwo admin_head() doesn't fire on the front-end it seems.
@Rarst It doesn't do what I want. I've searched and came up with nothing. That's why I'm trying to build it myself.
@miss_jwo Yup, I've been trying to use that, but to no effect 🙁 There's something I'm not understanding about how it works.
@Rarst That example does not differentiate between frontend and backend. It just translates everything.
@Rarst Do you know of any examples of those?
@miss_jwo There is no function called that unfortunately.
@miss_jwo Dang, if that works then that is one heck of a simple route to achieving my goal!
I need to translate the WP admin bar, without translating the content on the front-end of the site. Any ideas on how to implement this?
My evening so far … https://ryan.hellyer.kiwi/2012/12/08/sognsvann-evening-skate/
@dgwyer That sounds like a plugin which will be very popular. Subscriptions to support forums are a commonly requested feature.
@dinicmilan I guess there are some other things that can be helpful, like how to alter stuff via JS if absolutely necessary.
@kimparsell Unit tests?
@dinicmilan Only other things to know are to use media queries and whether to set it to autozoom or not.
@dinicmilan If you learn the fundamentals of CSS then the rest is simple.
@olivM That was my line of thought too. Others seem to disagree and prefer to replicate production.
@kimparsell I have no idea why my text replicated like that. I never wrote "appears". Tried deleting and resending. Same text popped up!?
@dinicmilan Thanks. I thought the menu was a bit weird though. I haven't gotten to that yet.
@kimparsell The zip seems to be available now … The zip appears to be available now … http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.5-RC4.zip
@dinicmilan Which one?
@kimparsell Yep, that's coz they just bumped the version in Trac (hence I knew it was going up). I don't think RC installs are upgrading yet
@kimparsell Are you on Trunk perhaps?

@CoenJacobs Thanks for the input.
@CoenJacobs It tests if the code will work in the future. It saves having to do a double test.
@CoenJacobs A staging environment for testing code before pushing to the live server.
WordPress question: Is it common to run trunk on staging servers? Or is it standard to replicate the current production server?
