WordCamp Minneapolis

I know that it’s been a while since I’ve written anything, and I really don’t have a good excuse, but I promise that I’ll have some good content coming soon because tomorrow, I’ll be attending WordCamp Minneapolis. WordCamp is a great place to meet other WordPress developers, and learn about a ton of different WordPress […]

Obscure PHP code in WordPress files

I received word recently, that a site I have previously done work on, was getting some syntax errors. After checking those errors out, and seeing that certain files were giving the error Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (/path/somefile.php) in /path/anotherfile.php, I determined the issue to be malicious PHP code that was […]

Checking WordPress with WPScan

If you use WordPress regularly, you know that it is often the target of hacking attempts, and rightfully so. It accounts for nearly a quarter of all websites! Why wouldn’t a hacker want to target WordPress? That, plus the plethora of amateur developers releasing plug-ins and themes with gaping security flaws, makes WordPress an easy […]

A long, long time ago, I worked on a website that utilized an almost insane amount of pages and child pages in WordPress. While I was adding content to those pages, I realized that I hated having to click the Pages link in the sidebar of the WordPress admin to go back, and then dig through […]

I’m trying to be a better developer. And somewhere in the vastness of the internet, someone told me I should be using Vagrant. So I did. It was cool and I liked it, but then I found out about VagrantPress and it got even easier. You just clone that repo, and start working. Pretty simple really. […]

CSS Hamburger Menu

I like the hamburger menu. It makes sense. So this is the one that I use when building a menu for mobile devices. Here’s the HTML: <nav id=”mobile-navigation” class=”site-navigation mobile-navigation” role=”navigation”> <a href=”#” class=”mobile-menu-link”>MENU<span></span></a> </nav> And the SCSS: .mobile-navigation { display: none; .mobile-menu-link { display: block; position: relative; width: 90px; height: 30px; left: 0; color: […]

Developing with Vagrant

Recently, I’ve been trying to find ways to speed up my development time, and I came across a great video showcasing Vagrant. I could spend a lot of time writing a bunch of mumbo jumbo here for you to read, or you could just watch the video that explains it a thousand times better than […]

It’s been pretty slow on the web development front for me lately, but I have discovered something new and interesting. It’s called DemocracyOS. What is DemocracyOS? Oh, I’m so glad you asked. Well it’s an open-sourced platform that aims to bring democracy back into the hands of the people in a way that makes voting […]

Custom WordPress Admin Login Logo

If you want to replace the WordPress logo on your admin login page with your own custom image, you can do it with just a couple simple lines in your functions.php file. add_action(“login_head”, “my_login_head”); function my_login_head() { echo “<style> body.login #login h1 a { background: url(‘”.get_bloginfo(‘template_url’).”/images/logo_login.png’) no-repeat scroll center top transparent; height: 181px; width: 269px; padding:0 […]
