I can create basic child themes. I can make some low level plugins. I can take themes and plugins as they’re given and live with the shortfalls. Lately I’ve become (more?) interested with the space between those two options. Can I use one or two plugins to create the equivalent of on-the-fly-child-themes? Can I teach other people who aren’t interested in making child themes how to do it? How replicable are the design/building patterns? To parallel that line walking, I’ve repeatedly tried to deal with the example/tool/tutorial structure in a way that might get people curious. Building lists of tools doesn’t appear to have advantages long term. I’ve done that too many times. Plus it puts the focus on the wrong element from the start. At the same time people need to see the association between tool and possibility. You can’t walk into these things saying “The tool/technology doesn’t matter.” The technology only becomes like air once it’s already shifted how you think- and probably in a permanent way. We no longer really think about how writing may have done things to us. Things far beyond the idea that we don’t remember things as well. Even different forms of writing may alter how we think/behave. To really think about this stuff requires a bigger picture view than most people are […]
This happened with one of our individual installs and it’s happened before (but I forgot the solution) so I’m writing it down. After the upgrade to 4.7.1, the front of the sight still worked but attempts to get to wp-admin failed with a 500 error and the URL was redirecting to something with upgrade.php? in the URL. Solution Change the name of the plugin folder (I just prepend an underscore). Revisit your login URL. Run the database upgrade as prompted. You should now be in the admin zone. Fix your plugin folder name. Easy but also easy to forget.
Having just finished presentingOr at least talking in a room with humans in it. It was not of enough quality to justify the term presentation. I need to figure out why that felt so bad. at NMC. I said we all need to document more, to show examples and explain what we did. Making the notes for the presentation last night and being able to use the blog posts I’d already written really showed me the value of reflecting on little things in an ongoing way. It’s amazing how much stuff I do that I completely forget even happened. So this is how you’d make a gravatar people browser based on information submitted via a Gravity Form.Could also do some stuff via the author information but that’s for another day. This image above shows the basic setup for the Gravity Form. Form fields essentially get combined with some HTML in the post body field. It’s pretty simple but it might help someone. This is the basic setup in FacetWP that generates the query and the display code. There are two elements. Element one is the query which tells which pieces of content you want. The second part is the display which shows the content that you’ve retrieved in whatever way you define. The text version for the FacetWP template is […]
