Weekly updates again

Okay, I haven’t done weekly updates in quite some time. I was somewhat consistent for a while but then it just kind of stopped for some time. Things happen, right? This time around, I am thinking of doing my updates on Friday nights. This way I can at least be somewhat consistent and plan ahead…

Learning Git

How do I start start this off? I’ve been using Git for several years. I actually had to look to see when I opened my GitHub account. I opened the account in 2012 just a few months after I began contributing to the WordPress forums. When I first began using WordPress I had no prior…

The reason it drives me crazy is because of that front-page.php file that I see every so often or when I see a theme that uses the Template Name: Front Page in order to create that static front page.

The thing is that the front-page template is meant to be used once. On the FRONT PAGE. Why would you want that page to be in other pages? This is what irritates me most about that.

Anyway, enjoy, don’t, up to you. As for me I’m heading out to get some sculpting tools.
