    Most of my riding is done early in the morning in the dark which means I can’t read my watch or see my cycling computer so watching my intervals is a bit of a challenge. I do also listen to music (yeah I know some people hate it) while riding though so my iPod is…

    WordPress Multisite Domain Mapping with Media Temple

    by

    While there are lots of tutorials out there that teach you how to setup domain mapping on your WordPress Multisite install there really aren’t any that deal with a particular issue (let’s call it ‘feature’) on Media Temples servers. It’s not really a bug and I’m sure some Unix guy out there can tell my…

    Again today on my ride I ended up with a broken spoke. This is the 4th one in 2 months. All have been on the non-drive side of the rear wheel and all have broken at the nipple. Yeah you’re right that’s totally an odd spot for it to continually happen, but that’s where they…

    Mailto: links are terrible. You know the ones that open your desktop email client and fill in the email for you so you can ‘contact’ whatever site has this terrible usability. Let me back track a bit, some mailto: links are terrible. The ones that really get my hate on are not the ones that…

    While converting a heavily customized premium theme into a proper WordPress child theme I came across a gotcha in WordPress. If you look at the WordPress Codex information on adding scripts to your theme all of the code samples tell you to find the script by using get_bloginfo(‘template_directory’); Unfortunately if you’re dealing with a child…

    Having Fun with the WordPress post_class()

    by

    While I know that the WordPress post_class(); has been around since WordPress 2.7 I recently just stumbled upon it for some recent projects. Unfortunately, while post_class(); gave me a ton of function that I needed, I still needed to extend it just a bit to suit the project specific needs. What is post_class(); Stealing directly…
