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.

WordPress Essentials: Backing up & Security

There’s a few things webby that most people forget or don’t know how to do. My line of work has brought these up again and again, and accordingly, I’ve found a few bits to help save the day.

Lester Chan’s WP-DBManager is grand. One-click to backup your db to your email. Hopefully it’s cron-ready- we’ll find out next week ;).

Another random gem logs incoming user-agents & auto-blocks IP addresses. TTC WordPress Security Tool is handy for stopping scraping and general meany-stuff. The author has a few more bits, especially for when you require users to create accounts.
