I was working on a problem last week in WordPress where the caption for an image was extending the whole width of the container, not staying the width of the image. This make sense – the image is inside the .wp-caption container. So how to we fix it? Let me tell you!
If you’ve done a Google Search on your mobile device recently, you may have noticed that Google adds a bit of text in the search results alerting you to the fact that a website is (or is not) mobile friendly. This can have a big impact on your website’s search ranking.
The last WordCamp I went to was WordCamp Chicago in June, with it rounding out a big tour that started in January to promote my book, Responsive Design with WordPress. While I took a much needed break (and started a new job thanks in part to that trip), I’m really excited to announce that I’ll be speaking on the topic at WordCamp Baltimore.
Last week I talked about the tail end of my speaking tour (thanks to everyone who came out to @WordCampPhilly). Up next is @WordCampChicago, but I’ll also be speaking at the WP Summit 2014, an online conference, on Wednesday, June 18th and I want to give away a free ticket!
In the upcoming weeks, I’ll be wrapping up what has turned into a little speaking tour. This year I’ve already gone to Austin, Lancaster, did @shoptalkshow and held some events locally in Scranton/NEPA. Through June, I’ll be finishing strong, hitting several more WordCamps and I will have my book on sale and signing it!
With the weather getting nicer here in the Northeast (finally), me moving to @wpengine (finally), and some extra codes sitting around for electronic copies of my books, I decided I it would be nice to ring in Spring with a give away! Read on to see how you can win a eBook version of all three of my books: Building WordPress Themes from Scratch, Responsive Design with WordPress, and The Web Designer’s Guide to Google Glass.
As you’ve probably read, my book, Responsive Design with WordPress, came out last month and is now available to purchase online and in stores. My publisher has also sent me a few copies to give to family, friends, important people, etc. I’ve decided that I’m going to give a few of those copies away through a couple of contests.
They are both pretty basic and outlined here. The first one is through the website GoodReads. I’m giving away 3 copies and the contest runs until the 31st. All you have to do is enter here, assuming you have a GoodReads account.
The other is your pretty standard social media content. There are 2 copies up for grabs and the contest runs until January 13th. You can enter on Facebook, Twitter, or by signing up for this contest only newsletter. Details for both Facebook and Twitter are on the contest page.
So hurry up! You have 1 week. You can enter all 4 ways to increase your chances, but you can only win one copy of the book. They are print versions and if you win I’ll be in touch to get your mailing address. Shipping in the USA and Canada is on me, but depending on the shipping cost elsewhere, I might ask for some help. If you have any questions, leave a comment here.
I’m happy to announce that my second book, Responsive Design with WordPress is out today online and in bookstores. It’s published through Peachpit/New Riders and I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out.
