Omeka REST API Experiment

In the Domain of One’s Own workshop yesterday, Ed Beck‘s work around integrating Omeka and WordPress came up. It led me to check out the Omeka S API. I made a functional example in CodePen and a couple of things came up that might be of interest. First, why do something like this? You have […]

I wanted to do a little example for a Gravity Forms workshop series I’m doing with Reclaim Hosting. The goal was to play off the Wonder Twins and their ability to change into various shapes.

Panopto API meets WordPress

Imagine you have some longer training videos but it’d be useful to provide discrete chunks. You might also want to provide some additional contextual information for particular video portions. Well, we wanted to be able to do that.1 This example uses the Panopto embed API and the Advanced Custom Fields repeater field to make this […]

Fancy Gravity Forms Site Creation with Teams

This is an odd one but I think worth writing down so I don’t forget and because it walks me through some patterns that are useful in both Gravity Forms and WordPress Multisite. You can see the whole thing here. The goal was to allow students to sign up and create profile posts on a […]
