I’ve been working on an internal IT support board and after moving it from the local test server to a remote live server sending the URL out for test, we noticed how damn slow it was, for example, it was taking 10 seconds on every page to connect to a clicked link. As it was […]
“Howdy, Mark Hall!” Oh please WordPress. I changed it to ‘Hi, Mark Hall’ on the corporate web site, while looking through the functions.php for the IT Support Board, I decided to enhance it a little. What about a random selection? [code] /** * Replace ‘Howdy’ with a random welcome message… because I can 😉 */ […]
Our website uses the WP Job Manager plugin to manage the recruitment side of the web site, and after much hacking of the template, we’ve got it nailed now for the different job types in different job categories. When asked to submit an RSS feed to AllTheTopBananas.com it came back as a fail as they […]
When we released version one of the WordPress of works web site, we were using the7 theme from Dream Forest, not my first choice but just because it’s what they thought looked fantastic at the time. On the plus side, anything was better than the god awful CakePHP version, which looked like Moses brought down […]
I’m writing a custom filter in WordPress today for an internal support board powered by AD and WordPress user roles/capabilities. The logic in the spec (such as it is) is along the lines of Is user posting isn’t an admin, find the admin of the user group (business support, technical support or integration) and send them an […]

WordPress built in widgets don’t let you choose custom created taxonomies so the hunt was on for a way to do this. Instead […]
On my daily check list, I go to the work’s web site, log in to the Wordpress admin and… WOAH! What the f… no mustn’t swear in the office. Really WordPress?
For doing something great some people would get a bonus, or doughnuts but as a simple humble (yeah right!) developer and a geek, I prefer something better. Yes, I was given a yellow circle sticker for being kick ass, yes, go me! <span style=”color: #ff0; font-weight: bold; font-size: 3em;”>·</span> I’ll be sure to show it […]
It’s tragically geeky, but just received notification from GitHub that the code I sent to the WordPress plugin DW Questions and Answers has been merged into the master branch. I can now change my CV to say “WordPress Developer” 🙂 Every little helps.
Thought you could beat me you bastard eh 🙂 Though it would have helped if the previous developer of the site didn’t completely fuck up the directory structure, therefore rendering any documentation completely useless. Oh, and thanks for leaving out those all so tricky administration back-end forms that you patently couldn’t be arsed to do. […]
