- Super-Toys Last all Summer Long: Fun that he wrote this 2 days after I bought mine. He’s dead on about sharing though. There needs to be an easier way. Full review from me coming soon.
- Bypass Facebook Fan Pages: Can we all stop liking those stupid pages now?
- Nordstrom’s Employee Handbook- short and sweet: If I ever have a full on company, my employee handbook will be similar. I hate stupid, pointless rules.
- 6 Secret Monopolies You Didn’t Know Run the World: I know I started on the 2nd page, but #3 is the most important one (for all of you fanboys out there).
- NationÂ DisappointedÂ by Great World Series Matchup: Incredibly true. Anyone who’s said this is a bad World Series is clearly only a Yankees or Phillies fan, not a baseball fan. [note: I’m a Yankees fan, but I love good baseball.]
- Ron Howard Explains Keeping “Gay” Joke in The Dilemma: There are so many other more important things people should be getting mad about. If you don’t like something said in a movie, don’t see that movie!
- Really Really Bad Headline: This happens too much.
- Dribble – Utah: Great designs here. I wish I could do stuff like this.
- PHP SOAP Extension: I had to do some work with SOAP this week and found this link to be helpful. I’ll also probably do a full write up on using SOAP with PHP and the problems I ran into.
Over the weekend I revamped this blog’s current theme a little bit, including adding custom styles for my Link Round-up lists. I achieved this by adding a simple piece of code within my loop to make each category a CSS class. Here’s how I did it.
Note: You need to be at least a little bit familiar with the WordPress API, and coding themes.
Recently I launched a couple of websites using WordPress and instead of using a temp directory for testing/client review, I used a plugin & theme instead. Using this technique I didn’t have to worry about moving directories, changing the WordPress directory/blog URLs, Â or checking image sources in posts. Here’s how I did it.
Often times I will be working on a WordPress theme that I want to live test, but I don’t want to reveal it to the world yet. The solution would be to throw up a temp page while you work. However, you may have noticed that throwing an index.html file in the WordPress directory or similar solutions break WordPress. Today I’ll tell you how to get around that.
While working on the redesign to this blog, I wanted to add the “Interesting Stuff” column you see just to the right. Using the RSS feed widget built into WordPress would be perfect, except for the fact that it only updates ever 12 hours. In today’s Quick Tip, we fix that problem.
I’m happy to announce my first Theme Forest component, Directory Handler. it’s a simple set of 2 classes that handle (in several ways) listing the contents of a directory. The main class,
DirectoryHandler, includes several functions that:
- Get and/or print the entire contents of a directory
- Normalize the name of a file or directory (replace special characters with spaces)
- Return the extension of a file
- Return all of the files of a directory in an array
- Return all of the sub directories of a directory in an array
ImageDirectory class extends the functionality of
DirectoryHandler by changing the get and print directory functions to:
- Print a thumbnail version of the image
- Integrate lightbox for easy image viewing/browsing.
Today, working on a project, I searched for a ‘State Drop Down Box’ for a form. Believe it or not, I couldn’t really find one, and had to ‘borrow’ own. So figured why not add one that is easy to get to my site. on top of Code I have added ‘Code Cips as a category, and for this post, the slug is
state-drop-down, so the url should be https://casabona.org/?p=state-drop-down/. Easy enough, right?
Just copy and paste*! When processing the form, the variable name for it is ‘state’. Later!
*OK- it’s not showing up right in the textarea, but it will in an HTML doc.
Here is the user login code I have been promising. It’s an image so it looks nice. You can download it at the bottom of the post. Keep in mind- This must be placed before the
head tag in the page so if cookies are created, they can be…
This might not be the most efficient code, but it does work. To get the actual code, click here. And if you do make it better, please let us know in the comments! Later
