Update: This was too hard to maintain, and things “got weird” sometimes. I’ve moved to Dropbox instead, very happy. I have my localhost server on iCloud. Cloud syncing, in my opinion, is the most reliable way to ensure what you’re working on is backedup to the second. However, 18,000+ file folders like /node_modules/ is just … continue reading »
Really enjoying using Atom now (instead of Panic Coda). The ability to customize and hack is just, mind blowing. Right out the gate this became useful. Not keeping tree view open, knowing if RemoteFTP was connected was slightly annoying – there is a setting within RemoteFTP to show icons in the status bar, but visually, … continue reading »
When switching localhost php versions for testing, nothing interrupts the workflow more than phpMyAdmin failing because you’re on php 5.4. The single line of code, to be your index.php in /phpmyadmin/ simply routes you to either the phpmyadmin/new/ (v4.7 – supports php 5.5-7.2) and phpmyadmin/old/ (4.0 – supporting php 5.2 – 5.4): Simple.
If you’re themes like most themes, and you have to fix your main elements CSS to accommodate Gutenbergs edge-to-edge capabilities on gutenberg-only pages, it’s good to know which pages are actually using Gutenberg.

While finally buying a Keurig today, I (oddly) decided to do my research on my phone instead of desktop, and also (oddly) decided to go to Keurig.ca instead of my normal stomping ground of Amazon.ca. While there, I was distracted in a nerdy daze by the animation they added to their hamburger navigation, immediatly stoped … continue reading »
I get the meaning of this app local.getflywheel.com – I just spent about 2 hours troubleshooting my local server setup after macOS 10.13 High Sierra update. Despite the annoyance, I do like having a local Apache to test, break, & fix – so I wont be replacing my local server with an app – but … continue reading »

This sweet tidbit helps so much during development.
This little function allows a form to have reCAPTCHA hidden until a user begins entering form values.

I thought it was pretty standard, but of course, Microsoft Edge has a problem with them. I get my icons from flaticon.com, which has a beautiful feature allowing to choose color+size then gives you … continue reading »
A very annoying function. …the_date() only displays the date for the first post (that is, the first instance of the_date()).. So

Adding an image would involve: save photo after editing, renaming it, uploading, creating new post, setting the title and date, assigning the featured image as the upload, then setting the category to Images so it’s added to the page. So, 8 steps, … continue reading »
