WordPress Multisite Sort Plus

Some might recall a few months ago when I posted the original Multisite Sort code. While this may be sufficient for most use cases, I find myself still having issues with some of my networks. As such, I threw out the old code and started from scratch… rather than simply sorting the menu, now I am rebuilding it from the ground up… my way. (more…)

What Are We Celebrating Again…?

What Are We Celebrating Again…?

Ok, ok, I know… everyone knows what today is all about. It’s July 4th, after all! Yes… that’s what today is, but not what it’s about. Believe it or not, a surprisingly large portion of the public at large have absolutely no idea what they’re really celebrating. Before you read on, take a moment and think it through… do you know what you’re really celebrating? And I don’t just mean knowing that it’s really called Independence Day, I mean what it truly is.

Wat

I’m sure many of you have already seen it… and yes, it’s a bit dated… but this is by far the best lightning talk I’ve ever seen and I’m constantly shocked at how many people aren’t familiar with it… (more…)

On WordPress Managed Hosting

Those of you who know me have likely had to sit through one of my rants on hosting. Anyone who has ever built, managed, or otherwise been involved with a website is sure to know the headaches that can come from finding the “ideal” hosting provider.

In Review: WordPress Conditional Widget Plugins

There are several major contenders, but I never really considered which is the right option. In fact, I’ll go so far as to admit that the only reason I have traditionally used the particular plugin I usually do is convenience… it’s simply the first one that pops up in the WordPress repo when one does a quick search.

Some Gave All…

Some Gave All…

A helmet, dog tags, boots and a rifle thrust into the sand. These simple objects comprise what is one of the most powerful images seen on the modern battlefield: that of the Battlefield Cross. (more…)

In Review: Email Clients

In Review: Email Clients

Those of you who know me are probably aware that I’ve got lot of things on my plate. As such, email is a fairly important part of my life. I’ve been a loyal Thunderbird user for years now, but recently it has started to show its age (I’ll go into details later on). Given my recent issues with Thunderbird, I’ve spent the last few weeks playing around with virtually every email client I could get my hands on and thought I should share my findings. (more…)
