The actual guide to this post is at the bottom. Click here for the tl;dr version. =) I recently wrote about my pet project that I built a site for. In messing around with that project, I’d learned a good deal about Gulp build tools and all the neat things they can do. Yet, one … Continue reading WordPress, Composer, Desktop Server and You
And I’m at it again! This time I decided to cobble together a very basic Genesis Starter theme that uses Bourbon Neat. You can find that project here: https://github.com/digisavvy/genesis-bourbon-neat. Plugging away with different tools is a lot of fun actually and you learn different tricks; apply new ways of thinking and more. I feel like I’ve … Continue reading Genesis Starter Theme Using Bourbon Neat
Hey folks! Below is the embed of my presentation from last night’s Hollywood WordPress Meetup. It was such a good time and had a great time sharing some of what I know.
Linda Sherman had mentioned that my talk from WCOC 2013 hadn’t been posted to WordPress.TV. Not a big deal, but it went better than my hungover Sunday presentation. So after pinging my buddy, Jason Tucker, he was able to get the video uploaded to the site and so I can share it with ya! =) … Continue reading My WordCamp OC 2013 Saturday Talk
I was on WP Watercooler earlier this week. And we talked about what WordPress themes best help businesses reach their goals. It was a lively talk, of course. This is a topic that’s near and dear to me and it’s been covered by my buddy, Mr. Lema. Now, I can’t tell any one specific business … Continue reading The Story of “You.” A Bit on WordPress Themes and Business.
My last two talks at WordCamps have been about Frameworks vs. Parent/Child Themes vs. Starter themes and why you might choose one over another, given any particular project. It’s not the most exciting topic, but it’s one that’s relevant to a good number of WP Devs out there. If you have worked with WordPress theme … Continue reading On Frameworks Coming to the Rescue
I put together an uber-simple child theme, called “Neat Child”, which you can download here (https://github.com/digisavvy/neat-child). This theme isn’t for the faint of heart. That is, it’s not yet easily customizable, whether you use it as a parent theme or as a starter theme. Either way, there’s a curve to learning it. The good news is … Continue reading Some Like it Neat Child Theme
I’m still plugging away, learning and tweaking ‘Some Like it Neat.’ If you recall, it’s a project I started putting together a couple of weeks ago leading up to WordCamp Las Vegas. I’d love some more feedback/contributions, obviously. Things to be added: Page Templates — Archive, Left/Right Sidebars, improved 404 Post Format Templates — The … Continue reading Quick Update on ‘Some Like it Neat.’
So, I ran 9 miles today. I took a nap and for the last few hours I’ve burned away on a starter theme. It’s called ‘Some Like it Neat’ and you can fork it here, on Github. The project isn’t a big deal. It’s, like many projects, just something I’m toying around with. I want … Continue reading Some Like it Neat
