It all started with a tweet from someone I don’t know. Today’s DS106 Daily Create was about showing how “massive” it is: #ds106 #dailycreate #tdc1602 Show the world how DS106 is MASSIVE https://t.co/y7RxyNZJva pic.twitter.com/hqu7qXFZje — ds106 Daily Create (@ds106dc) May 28, 2016 And I smiled seeing how @g1000p, a twitter account with 4 total tweets, […]
For today’s You Show Prime Time event, TRU’s Jon Fulton did a great session on audio recording techniques and equipment. I’m usually thinking about ways to archive, capture such sessions […]
FeedWordPress is the magic elixer, the glue that binds ds106 and its satellite sites together- we are currently syndicating in over 500 blogs to the main ds106 site. By the use of extra tags we add to each feed (e.g. one to designate open online participants, one to designate the different groups that use the […]

cc licensed flickr photo shared by klynslis Someone in my twitter flow, I cannot recall who, tweeted in angst asking if anyone has had a good webinar experience in Adobe Connect. The subtext was clear- he/she had a lousy experience, and wonders if te problem is the technology. Heck, I do this all the time. […]
Note: Updated December 7, 2010 for use of new theme…. Nothing like a little WordPress hacking to get back in action. A few months ago I registered the domain barkingdog.me as a place intended to set up a photo gallery, but decided today to finally get around to hanging something for real there. My goals […]
I have not even seen a glimpse of MTV for at least 10 or 15 years. I am so old I can remember when the “M” stood for “Music”: I can remember the riveting teen age moment when MTV first launched- it was radical, different, spoke to me– and it felt at the time like […]
It’s been a while but it is time to add to my collection of WordPress Dissected where I break down web sites I have been building using WordPress but with some moderate to severe template wrangling.
Today I present an NMC project set that is sort of a Zen Riddle. If a blog has no posts is it a web site? This is the editing area for a finished web site:
The web site is made up entirely of WordPress pages, because there is nothing chronological in the site’s structure (though if we ever added a news section it would be easy). There was a reason I organized it around Pages… and I cannot remember why, but had something to do with being able to list the pages in a sidebar. I think. To be honest, the work started more than a year ago and the site sat behind a password until the grant funders for the project where ready to go public.
The site is for the Edward and Betty Marcus Digital Education Project for Texas Art Museums, a project where we worked with 28 art museum or art education programs in Texas to help them apply storytelling concepts to their collections and artists, and use the Pachyderm software to create online exhibits.
My colleague Rachel Smith presented a nice little WordPress challenge to re-create what she had done previously as old skool manual HTML page updating into her WordPress blog (see Postcards back through time). In the spirit of previous documentation of WordPress Theme hacking, here is the under the hood things I did, some variations on […]
