The Art of Writing Sensationalist Headlines. I think it’d make for a cool e-book title. I wonder how much I could sell it for.
I’m always excited when WordPress adds a new feature. The first thing I do is try to extend it in some way to do something even more awesome. It doesn’t even matter if I have a particular need for the feature. I’m like a kid in a toy shop, playing around with all the new stuff. I’ve always assumed other devs were the same way, but it has been made clear to me that’s not always the case. ∞
I posted a new tutorial on ThemeReview.co today on when and how to prefix code in WordPress themes. It’s also relevant to plugin development. ∞
Have you ever heard of that “JSON REST API” thing folks in the WordPress community seem to be talking about, looked around endlessly for a decent explanation, and finally gave up, muttering “WTF?!?” at the computer screen? Fear no more. Brian Krogsgard has you covered with the only explanation that, you know, actually makes some kind of sense in that sort of human logic that we tend to like when someone explains something to us. ∞
I’ll be doing a live AMA (Ask Me Anything) on WPChat later today at 7 p.m. EST (UTC -05:00). That’s when the main event happens. However, it will be kept open for another 24-36 hours for people from different time zones. You can read more about it on the WPChat Thread. ∞
We’re running a pre-redesign promotion at Theme Hybrid with $10 memberships to the plugin and theme club. If you’ve been on the fence about joining, now would be a great opportunity to sign up. We’re talking a full year of plugin, theme, and WordPress support for less than $1/month. You won’t find that anywhere. ∞
In the past week, I’ve pushed out two new plugins (Registration Honeypot and Entry Views) and a theme (Twiggy) on Theme Hybrid. Go check ’em out!
My housemate helped me clean today. He even scrubbed the tub and dusted. I have no choice but to accept this as divine intervention on a scale never before witnessed by man; there must be some higher power in this universe. Henceforth, I will dedicate the remainder of my life to finding and learning more about this higher power. ∞
Whistles is my latest WordPress plugin with a different take on how tabs, toggles, accordions, and other bells and whistles should be handled. Check out the initial release. ∞
I released the Socially Awkward theme over at Theme Hybrid today. It’s a responsive CSS3 and HTML5 media theme with some cool features. ∞
