We recently had an opening where I work for a casual (3-4 days a week) developer. Someone mid-ish level that could handle creating custom WordPress websites without too many problems. It’s the first time that I’ve been on the employers side of the process, and it sure was an eye-opener! Continue reading Looking for a job? Please tell the truth in your resume
I think that our society has given up on reading anything that we see on the internet (and yes, I’m aware of the irony here). Continue reading What ever happened to reading comprehension?
I have had a few phones in my time, and the latest is my iPhone 6 Plus. I’ve had it for about 2 1/2 years now, and until about a month ago it was performing well. Continue reading Customer Service – One reason that I don’t mind paying the “Apple Tax”
Another great computing acronym has come to my attention: TITSUP.
And yes, it is as bad as it sounds! Continue reading It’s gone TITSUP!
Today I had a strange one. I’ve been adding editor styles to my sites using add_editor_style() now for a while, so that editors can see what the posts will look like when they post them. Today when I added in the same code as I always do, the stylesheets just wouldn’t work. Continue reading WordPress – add_editor_style() not adding stylesheets to TinyMCE Editor
It’s becoming commonplace that people go to one of the many commercial WordPress theme marketplaces, search through the list for a theme that suits what their business does, purchase that, and use it on their site. In theory, this is great. It lets you get a head-start in functionality as everything you need is “all included” in that theme. But there are also downsides to it. Continue reading WordPress theme – is custom-made or pre-built best for my site?
This problem has been around for a while, and none of the resources that I could find online gave me any sort of idea how it could be done. The worst result that I found was this one, where a representative of WooThemes themselves said that this couldn’t be done… That led me to believe that they were right, and it really couldn’t be done. Admittedly, that answer was given in 2012, so it’s a few years past now, so I wanted to see if anything had changed since then. Continue reading Woocommerce – Hide ‘Hidden’ products from site search
What Makes 100%?
What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?
Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. Continue reading What is 100%?
As a developer or a designer, we’ve all heard this way to many times to remember. Someone comes to you, asks how much to do X, and then gets almost offended that you have to charge for your time to do the work. Even worse are the ones that say “It can’t be that hard, just tell me how to do it and I’ll do it myself” and expect your years of training and hard work in just a couple of hours of your time, and all for free… “because you’re not doing it, just showing me how to do it”.
We’ve got problems with old fonts here. The designers want to use them on websites, but thanks to the way that Macs handle older Postscript Type 1 fonts, they are always seen as 0kb files to my PC. That means that they can’t be saved or converted into web fonts. Continue reading Converting Postscript Fonts to Web Fonts
