  • After the content solid

    Sure, content is king but if you don't provide useful parts with the content, you can say that the emperor is naked.

    Seriously, wouldn't you find it odd to see nothing else than the title and the content on a page? Unless you're promoting minimalism on websites (like :mnmlist), you should be focusing on interactivity, monetization or enriching / extending the content in some way. In this series, we're going to go through how to achieve it.

  • Diy wordpress framework

    One of the best things about my education at the University of Scranton was the recurring lesson we learned about reuse. Reuse is incredibly important in programming for many reasons: easier testing, saving time, the ability to focus on more advanced things, etc. Once I graduated and entered the wonderful world of full-time freelancing, I decided if I was going to keep doing WordPress work, I would need to apply those reuse lessons to my everyday life.

  • Ticketsite1

    In part one, we'll talk about the planning stages of the project and consider what is really necessary for a ticketing system, take a look at how to use WordPress to build a pleasant environment for your users/customers, and we'll take a look at building a skeleton ready for part two.

    In part two we'll build on the decisions we made in the first part of the series, and take a look at custom fields and how we can automate 'Buy Tickets' buttons to be generated on each concert. We'll also use the custom field idea to look at how we can sell merchandise for the concert (specifically, the poster art that we've commissioned for advertising) and how we can eliminate the need to use categories to differentiate between future and past events.
