I fully expected people not to be satisfied with the simple calling card templates we introduced to the Ontario Extend participants last week. I would not be. The idea was again to put a temporary placeholder at the entrance to one’s domain. Something to come back to. But you cannot suppress keeners like @NurseKillam so […]
I’m just back from an intense but rewarding (best combo) of helping with three days of workshops for a new project supported by eCampus Ontario. This is the first attempt to capture some broader ideas, and is in the vein of what I tried to describe to participants as using a blog post to think […]
I was not going to do this until a little later, but in one of those late night self conversations of “I wonder if I can do this quickly” I’ve dropped a new theme on this blog. This one is a free one in the WordPress bin, Cover which I first saw used by Clint […]
Back in February I wrote of converting an HTML5up static template to a WordPress theme I call WP-Dimension. This was also a first run at putting theme settings inside the WordPress Customizer. I run the static site for my own purposes at http://cog.dog (I still love my domain), but the WordPress version comes in handy […]
An issue on a site leads to a solution that almost no one besides me can figure out, so we go at it again. Now there is happiness (infer). One of the more confusing aspects of running WordPress as multi-site is the meaning of the role of Administrator. On a self-hosted single WordPress site, as […]
I’ve got my hands in two current connected course sites that rely on the Feed WordPress syndication approach— one is Open Learning 17 led by Gardner Campbell and the other is the Networked Narratives course I am co-teaching with Mia Zamora. We’ve had a bit of a circle around on a part that has little […]
Oh web design vanity, thy name is obscure CSS class. This is something really really visually petty, but, you hopefully know you can in WordPress you can embed a single tweet by just finding it’s URL (it’s the link on the time/date stamp) and putting it on a blank line:
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.
Blah blah blah blah. Blah! Blah! Blah, blah,
blah blah blah blah blah blah.
Hah! You get the […]
I’m fairly sure this blog post and the README write up a new WordPress Theme are going to take as long as it took to do the coding. That’s okay, it’s important. The path I took was similar when I was looking for a simple landing for the main site of the WordPress Multisite for […]
This is a hastily written description of a little mystery site I put together at http://arganee.world. The sliding images in the background are done by an HTML5up template called Eventually, but the dynamic text in the middle is done via some calls to the WordPress API via jQuery. The whole thing started when building out […]
