Embed a Google Folder in Populr.me
We’ve had a few people who became big fans of populr.me. They’re also using Google Docs/Drive and since I like things to blend . . . here’s how you embed a Google Drive folder into populr.me. The example is here if you want to check it out.
Getting That iFrame Stuff
I started to write directions on how to do this but just built a little tool instead.
It is always a wonderful feeling to figure something out, especially after having struggled with it. The following is a continued progression from one idea in 2011 to this idea in February of 2014 and then merged with this tangential idea from February 2014. The new child theme is here. So at this point, I have a workflow that starts with a bookmarklet that adds the page to Diigo (maintains my normal workflow) auto creates the WordPress Snap code then FeedWordPress takes the Diigo posts and adds it to a blog The blog now also generates a sortable visual interface of screenshots To business . . . Bookmarklet Modifications I made an addition here, wrapping the comment field in a div I named “show”. I did this because Diigo puts the tags in the body of what becomes the post. So it looks like below. It was irritating because the tags weren’t in any particular div and there was no other easy way to address the pieces I wanted to vanish. I didn’t like that and since this site was purely set for this workflow I went the other route (a fairly nuclear one). I set .entry-content p to display: none. That vanishes it. Since I’d added the additional div piece for the Diigo comments, that stuff was safe from […]
The easiest path for me to get Theta video on YouTube using a Mac ended up being . . . Change file from m4v to mov – just rename the file and confirm.

In WordPress it’s easy to delay publishing until a certain date or to show posts published on a certain date but I didn’t know of an easy way to show posts associated with a certain date. What I wanted to do was allow an instructor to write a bunch of posts about art related events in the local area. They’ll be browsable in a variety of ways but we wanted the ones that were relevant to today to show up on the home page automatically so they’d get attention etc. This was one of those scenarios where I say something like “I am confident it can be done but I’ve never done it or seen it done.” In my head it made sense. I tried a few different ways but I’ll start with the one that worked and was pretty easy. It does require that you make a child theme but I plan to make a plugin that’ll do it if you give me a few days. Anyway, here’s the chunk that does the work. It is, as usual, a result of looking through the WordPress Codex. This is the source for the current time and the light finally went on that I didn’t even need to search a particular custom field as I read this piece on wp_query for […]
