  • Always a work in progress

    Yesterday I was able to change out the theme to this site. I spent most of the day just fiddling and trying to get things to just work. I took a theme from the free repository and scrapped a lot the unused files. Yeah. There were quite a few that I didn’t really need. Many […]

  • Extra or missing characters

    The other day I was tinkering with a random test site and was driven to near madness. Why? I kept forgetting to add the ending semicolon. Every single time. It wasn’t that I would miss the key stroke it was that I just legit didn’t press the thing. I spent a minute or two every […]

  • Keeping count of reviews

    I hate posting this but I have to do it; sort of a status check for myself. To see where I stand and where I can be better. We all do it. I choose to do it publicly. I can’t recall when I said I wanted to have my review count to be at 500 […]

  • Making a few commits

    Let me give you a little bit of a back story first. 2 years ago I began posting on the WordPress.org forums to help people out. I would only post on things that I knew for sure I knew the answers to or would help out. It felt like it at the time. Who knows […]

  • WordPress 3.6 in April

    The most recent version of WordPress got delayed but I feel it is for the good. The reason this time is because the features are not quite the way the community would like.

    I recently got a chance to assign my own themes in the WordPress Theme Trac in order to review submitted themes. I am beyond elated and feel a little honored at the same time. Some people may not understand what that means to me but I’m not too worried about that. What this means to […]

  • One more week

    Earlier today when I got home from work I did my usual routine of updating to the most current development version of WordPress, made sure all other applications were up to date and opened up my code editor (Notepad++) to view and edit my theme files. Since I was wide awake I tried my hand […]

  • My new addiction

    No, not a drug; although some people may consider it a drug. Over the last few weeks I have been more driven to learn about web development. One of the things that I have learned is to document everything. I pretty much have tried to document every little detail of my learning process and I […]

  • My WordPress theme

    I finally, finally got the ball rolling on what will be my theme and theme structure for this site! I am so excited about this. After having read so many posts about templates, CSS, OOCSS, SaSS, PHP and just about any random acronym you can possibly think of I finally have a name for the […]

  • Keeping WordPress on my mind

    With WordPress being a great blogging software some people often forget that it can also double as a good CMS. (Content Management System)
