Even in my WordPress development environment I have some real names and emails. That happens. Sites get imported. Users get made. That can create hassles if I want to create a tutorial video or do a live presentation without showing any names or emails. At best, I’m doing post-editing to blur out sections of the video which is a pain. At worst, I’m creating a new development environment and then having to fill it with fake users. Instead, I came up with an easy way to deal with it via Style Bot. The following bit of CSS takes care of the blurring of content in the WordPress Multisite admin users view. It’s pretty consistent across WordPress but you might need to tweak it a bit for other layouts. In any case, it’s an easy thing to customize and turn off/on as needed. It’s possible you’d need to throw a few more bits of CSS on there to make it specific to the admin view but I leave that exercise to my mythological reader.

And how can this be? The reason is that unsandboxed apps can open executable shell scripts in Terminal, and those scripts will execute with the permissions not of the opening app but rather with the permissions of Terminal, i.e. Full Disk Access. Re-visiting How we Work at Reclaim | bavatuesdays If nothing else, I learned a couple of things through writing this long, wandering post: 1) integrating various technologies is crucial to make Reclaim Hosting work, and it reinforces why showing students how the web actually works through linking and integrating is an essential literacy in the 21st century; 2) how dependent we are on various softwares and how that reinforces the value of open source as the pricing for many of the proprietary applications continues to go through the roof—making open source alternatives not only interesting but almost essential.
