We released a little something called Upfront last week and the response has been fantastic. There is still so much we want to do to build and improve the platform, which is why we are on the hunt for new developers to join our Upfront team.
H5P is not your average WordPress content plugin: it is a genuinely innovative way to create, embed and share rich HTML5 content via your WordPress site.
Although it’s perhaps aimed more at educational content, there are content types such as image hotspots, presentations and timelines that will be of interest to any WordPress site owner.
So take a peek at what could be the future of rich HTML5 content.
What Is Rich Content?
Quite a chunk of the HTML output of your WordPress site comes not from your theme but from the bowels of the WordPress core.
A combination of WordPress’ age and a necessary requirement for backwards compatibility, some of that markup is decidedly old-fashioned.
If you want truly responsive and flexible images and embeds, you need to get modern and semantic.
In version 3.6, WordPress added Semantic Markup as a theme feature. This allowed any theme to generate updated markup when calling functions such as wp_list_comments, comment_form and get_search_form.
Version 3.9 added two more options to Semantic Markup, gallery and caption, which updates the generated HTML for images and galleries.
