CSS Humor Style Selector

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 14:00:57 +0000

One of my favorite activities is to look through my old drafts, sometimes years later and laugh at my old, seemingly random ideas.  I decided to post this one from 2010, simple as it may be, I thought it was an interesting (and mildly funny) concept for a blog / website. A website author could […]

How to Clear the WP Engine Cache

Sat, 10 Feb 2018 14:00:59 +0000

WP Engine built in caching is a breathe of fresh air if you’re used to managing caching plugins, and their finicky settings and tendency to break.  Built into the WordPress dashboard, the WP Engine cache control is just two clicks away, which makes theme changes easy to see immediately.

If you’ve run WordPress for any length of time, you’re no doubt familiar with phpMyAdmin.  Access to phpMyAdmin can often be critical to your WordPress operation and debugging needs, and thankfully WP Engine makes this very easy. Unlike some web hosts which hide phpMyAdmin, or put it behind an additional (and unknown) password – phpMyAdmin […]

Sat, 08 Jul 2017 11:59:08 +0000

WordPress plugins offer a quick and easy way to expand the function of your WordPress website.

Should You Use a Google Analytics WordPress Plugin

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 16:31:07 +0000

Many times I come across a website powered by WordPress rife with unused, out of date and abandoned plugins.  The first step in remedying this common situation is to review the plugins installed and identify candidates to eliminate.  Often I attempt to remove plugins that provide simple, easy to replicate features.  One example is Google […]

New Simple Bootstrap WordPress Theme

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 13:46:09 +0000

I didn’t set out to create a Bootstrap theme for WordPress, yet here I am, running just that and proclaiming yet again, that I will resurrect this blog from it’s deathbed (I’ll spare you the overly dramatic “I’m back” post). First the theme.  I started with a very stripped down, hand-built HTML5 theme.  After battling […]

Tue, 07 Sep 2010 20:21:13 +0000

In my 14+ years of professional website design and development experience I have seen and heard it all when it comes to client and business owner web project dysfunction. This is not to say I don’t love my clients. Did I mention I love my clients? Because I do.  They pay my bills, they create […]

I’m Stuck – Random Design Idea Generator

Tue, 24 Aug 2010 02:23:36 +0000

I fashion myself a bit of a web designer, and sometimes after slaving away on a client’s web design proof for hours, I run into a wall of uncreative energy or as I call it “shit out of ideas”.   I have found that many times the path around or through this wall is not always […]
