Doing Things the WordPress Way

This past Fri­day marked the sec­ond Win­nipeg Word­Press meetup, and it was fan­tas­tic. It also marked my first time pre­sent­ing on a tech topic, and I thank every­one for let­ting me ram­ble for a while! Len from WPCanada has a great writeup of the event and has high hopes for the future. My pre­sen­ta­tion was […]

High stan­dards are a great thing. Over­all I think that the theme […]

Smarter Custom Post Types 1.3

Firstly, you can now find every­thing at its own project page: Smarter Cus­tom Post Types. Updat­ing the orig­i­nal post every time I edited some­thing wasn’t awe­some. In 1.3 I tweaked the label UI han­dling to work prop­erly with recent updates to label han­dling for cus­tom post types, and cleaned up the code a bit. Go […]
