Send Links To Alternate Link On Mobile

Send Links To Alternate Link On Mobile

Here's the scenario. You've built a lovely responsive website, but you are integrating a 3rd party's application as part of your offering. Their site is built primarily for the desktop, but it works well enough on the mobile. Finally, they've built a nice mobile app for using, but the mobile looks like a turd on the desktop. You want desktop browsers to go to one place and mobile browsers to go to another. Adding this little javascript in the header of your page will make it so any link can be directed to…Read more
Simple WordPress Forms

Simple WordPress Forms

I really like the Jetpack plugin. The idea of it is awesome, and most of the modules are great. So far though, I hate the Jetpack forms module. They have perfectly simplified the adding of forms to posts and pages. It is easy to add a form, change the elements and who it goes to, and put it in the post. So why not use it for your forms? I have found the Jetpack forms impossible to format using CSS without editing the plugin. The stock formatting of the forms is adequate for…Read more
Create A Beautiful Gallery With WordPress’ Jetpack Plugin

Create A Beautiful Gallery With WordPress’ Jetpack Plugin

With each update to Wordpress, the features get better and better. The Jetpack plugin by the creators of Wordpress is the same way. One of the recent additions to the Jetpack plugin turns the boring stock Wordpress gallery feature into something useful and potentially beautiful. For a few years, I have been a huge proponent of NextGen Gallery for creating image galleries on Wordpress. I find myself with less use for the additional plugin overhead when nice galleries are so easy to come by with features in the Jetpack plugin that I'm already…Read more

Display Featured Images In Admin Post List

Display Featured Images In Admin Post List

When it comes to photography sites built on Wordpress, there really is one common thing that nearly all of them have. Photos. And while I recommend having a good title, both for attracting readers and for SEO reasons, sometimes it's easier to recall what your post was about by seeing the featured image you used to represent the post. So let's imagine you're looking back through your posts and want to edit something. You could just browse the site itself so you can see the images, find the post you want to edit,…Read more
Be Ready For Mobile Traffic With WordPress Mobile Pack

Be Ready For Mobile Traffic With WordPress Mobile Pack

As well as I keep up with the emerging technologies, I'm relatively new to the mobile tech scene. Only recently have I been able to get a Palm Treo, and while it's far more intelligent than what I'm used to, it's a far sight from an iPhone or Android. As I haven't been browsing my websites on a mobile platform, I often forget to make my sites or themes mobile friendly. According to Mobile Crunch, as of early in 2010, Apple has sold 51.15 million iPhones. Android smart phone shipments grew 886% year-on-year…Read more
Make WordPress Posts That Expire

Make WordPress Posts That Expire

I don't dig through my old stack of newspapers at home to read the news. Maybe do the crossword, but not read the news. After about a week, the news has become a historic record, not news. Once in a while, I'll search for something online that has popped up on Twitter of Facebook. Something new and current. More than once, I've chosen a link that looked relevant but found an article written years ago about something similar, but completely outdated. If you would like to avoid this problem for your visitors on…Read more
