Reading List #34


This week I was mainly supposed to get our company’s paperwork ready for our annual accounting. Which meant I did everything but that, right up until Friday afternoon, and then tried to get everything done in 3 hours. Yay procrastination.

Anyway, here’s a few of the things I’ve been reading this week:

🀩 CSS only menu using the :has() selector

This one’s pretty cool! Creating a menu that opens and closes (like a mobile / hamburger menu, for example) by using only CSS with the new :has() selector.

πŸ₯³ ACF 6.0 Released

Advanced Custom Fields just released version 6 this week. I haven’t had enough time to play around with it myself, but reading through the release post, it looks like a great example of how to approach a UI-refresh. ACF always did a great job with a UI that feels native to WordPress while still offering some enhancements, without breaking with core UI-concepts. They seem to have found a good balance between refreshing the old UI, without throwing old patterns overboard.
