  • I will always be a novice

    I know it does sound funny to those that have known me for several years but that is how I view myself sometimes. I don’t mean that I am a beginner but I want to be one. I mean this in the most positive way I can think of. A few years ago I was […]

  • Creating a sticky post slider

    Brief background Creating a slider is simple. For some. In WordPress there are a lot of ways to creating a post slider, image slider, category slider and just about any type of slider you could possibly imagine. The one I wanted to share is creating one with sticky posts. You know the ones that you […]

  • Issues with my_query

    Recently I was in the middle of creating a theme that had support for a front page and blog with featured posts that displayed in a certain manner. I read up on how to create a new WP_Query and felt pretty confident I would be able to get the desired results. Yeah, I was a […]

  • Archive widget at a glance

    Today I put the finishing touches to my customized archives widget. While I am tempted to submit it to the WordPress plugin repository I will hold off for a little bit. The reason: I’m not quite ready. That will usually be my excuse. Enough of that on to the code! The issue I love using archives […]

  • 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. There are some minor issues but will be fixed within the time span. The reason I’m pretty pumped about this next major […]

  • Displaying the gallery count and the images

    Sometime last week I had an idea that finally managed to come alive. More and more I have been getting more and more ideas when it comes to creating WordPress themes. The most recent one being a theme that – much like twenty-thirteen does – showcases post formats. I still have to work with audio, […]

  • Twenty-thirteen in April

    At least that is the plan from the development blog on core. I updated my trunk version on my desktop which I use primarily for testing and will be using for all my theme and plugin development needs. The one thing that just about everybody noticed from the get-go was the color usage. Vibrant and […]

  • I hate not finding the right documentation

    I really do. Recently I was trying to see if I could help anybody out with their WordPress questions and came across the sub-forum of localhost installs. I figure why not? I once had issues trying to figure out why I couldn’t see the pages. The issue that was on the plate was a server […]

  • Theme reviewing

    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 […]

  • Learning with practice

    The progress of my theme is decent. I have been learning how to work with Git and SVN more and more. I did recently have a little conversation with @ipstenu on Twitter about learning version control. Yes, I am still learning how to harness the power of simple commits and getting the hang of how to […]
