This does assume you have the Contact Form 7 and Dynamic Text Extension plugins installed. If you don’t, this article will mean bugger all. On our works web site, we use Contact Form 7, about 30 in all, and after being asked to change the ‘to:’ address once too often, I thought ‘fuck this’ and came […]
Edited: 18/3/2018 with screenshots and to recognise an update. Edited: 4/1/2019 with an update to fix filter. Some genius at work pointed out that the contact forms on the works web site weren’t validating properly. Whoops, my bad. So I changed the email and telephone inputs to their proper HTML5 types, but there was the […]
The development team are being reskilled (NOT retrained) to use technologies for mobile apps like AngularJS and MVC5 and as we’re MSDN members, we get Pluralsight free 🙂 So we all get our subscriptions through and the first thing I notice is the search. That’s nice, so my mind is already writing the code in my head, but I’m a lazy […]
I don’t get many emails a day, but I like to keep on top of it so my phone usually has maybe 1 or 2 unread emails most of the time.
I wake up Saturday… or was it Sunday… anyway, and I look at my phone and… what the fuck, just let me rub my eyes to make sure the 90 unread emails is right. Nope, I did read it right.
For some reason, for a 10 minute period at 5:40am, there was 90 failed admin login attempts from different IP addresses.
Someone has too much time on their hands to hack this piece of shite.
Since moving over to a new theme on the works web site, it’s been my mission to change the INPUT and BUTTON tags to match, and sometimes it’s just not possible without massive duplication of CSS. In this morning’s example, I wanted to get rid of the styling imposed by Yop Poll and put Twitter […]
Just logged on to my dashboard to see what the hell is going on with this blog and erm… yeah ok. Really? Why are you wasting your time 😉
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 […]
