The Quick & Dirty:

  • 9+ years in the biz, 10 messing around
  • All the latest in HTML, CSS, JS & PHP (Sorry, no .net or Ruby skills yet)
  • Cross-browser compatible code from Photoshop or Illustrator files.. or napkins!
  • Custom Specialities in Wordpress theming & plugins, Twitter & jQuery
  • Subversion, server-log analysis, and blocking hack-attempts (of late).
  • Data/Project Geek. I ♥ timelines.

I’ve compiled some handy PHP functions I’ve had to whip up. More extensive code-samples are also available.

FireShell + DocPad?

This is a fine introduction/package/setup of all the things I’ve been hearing other savvy devs chit-chat about for the past few years. However, it still doesn’t answer the CMS question: Just because you can make a fine HTML+CSS+JS site, doesn’t mean it’s WordPress/Drupal theme compatible – those two packages add in their own CSS classes, …

Mac Finder meets Subversion

There’s a few scripts out there for colorizing subversion checkouts in Terminal. And there’s a few good Subversion clients for Mac. (and a few bad free ones). The major feature for svn’ers though – especially newbies – is using Mac’s color-labels for what’s in the repo, what’s not, & what will be committed. Here’s the …

For All your WTF Joomla’s

Due to unfortunate circumstances, I’m now tasked with Joomla-maintanence. So. Sad. Here’s what I’ve got so far: Joomla Hates PHP. Problem: “Strict Standards: Non-static method JLoader::import() should not be called statically” Answer: Use this .htaccess addition: php_flag display_errors Off And then proceed on your way. Joomla Uses One Template-wrapper for all pages. This is some …

WordPress Theming is actually Programming.. or, “Look, I’m all grown up now”

These past 2 weeks at work, I’ve learned a lot about optimization; you could say it’s been a “reality check.” Last week, I took time to check response times on websites we host on Godaddy. Taking the plain HTML+CSS times as a baseline for size, resources & speed (very fast), I started to wonder what …

jQuery Form+Cufon = IE8 error. Just another day on the job…

There are some things which you shouldn’t do. Editing WordPress’ “core” is one of them. But when debugging, there’s 2 routes to go: deeper, into lower-level code, or higher, trying to avoid the situation.
