  • Harvest4Clients Fork

    No demo online yet, so a screenshot will suffice for now. I am in the process of transitioning all of my work to hourly billing and am looking for an easy way for clients to check in on my hours. I am a happy Harvest user, but it doesn’t offer an easy way for clients […]

  • Show a title when hovering over an image with jQuery or CSS

    \It’s not too hard! I was writing up a demo and figured I might as well share it with the world. You can do it in CSS or jQuery, definitely useful for galleries.

  • Child Themes talk at NYC WP Meetup

    I gave a presentation on Child Themes at the NYC WordPress Meet Up – I think it went well! There’s the video. Check the the slides here. (Slides created with reveal.js. Let’s take a moment to appreciate the developers on that one – what a fun tool!)

  • Medal Illustration

    This is for a poster for a 7th grade class’s mission called “Quest to Discover the World’s Greatest City” at Q2L. Students will measure the per capita income, crime, cost of living, and other statistics to determine the greatest city. Hmm..maybe Pittsburgh?

  • Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me When I Was Learning How to Code

  • How the Internet Works Comic

    I’ve totally posted this before, but just want to reiterate how great it is. I used it in my class at General Assembly and I think it was an excellent guide for talking about what is normally a really confusing/jargon-heavy topic. via Fabulously Broke

  • Responsive-ize WordPress Gallery Thumbnails with Sass

    UPDATE: Just use Justin Tadlock’s Cleaner Gallery plugin. I am in the midst of rewriting my WP theme WPFolio Two. I wanted to make the gallery thumbnail images a flexible width rather than their default fixed width. To do this, I gave the attachment images themselves a width: 100%; but needed to apply my responsive […]
