tl;dr — I made a plugin available here.
I saw a post on WP Tavern about a new plugin called Fast Page Switch that allowed you to quickly switch between page edit screens in the WordPress admin. It occurred to me that this concept could be easily taken further and allow for switching between posts, pages, and custom post types via a searchable dropdown. I turned the concept into a plugin called Edit Quick Switch and you can download it on WordPress.org now.
If you find it helpful, please share. Or, if you have ideas for improvement, it’s all on GitHub.
I’ve wanted to start my own WordPress theme shop for a long time… a really long time actually. On Monday I finally did it and launched ThemeBright, a theme shop that makes WordPress themes for churches. The first theme is called Restful and I’m giving away a free copy.
We’ll see how this goes, but I’m giving it my best shot.
Lately, I’ve been reading a lot of blog posts.
In fact, most of them are like this one.
One sentence per paragraph.
Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, maybe two. Like this paragraph.
As if every line was earth-shattering news that deserved a paragraph all to itself.
I understand what you guys are trying to do.
I get it.
You understand that short paragraphs are considered helpful.
You understand readers have short attention spans.
And you understand that writing long paragraphs is hard.
But I have a request.
And I’ll keep it brief.
It’s really annoying.
If you’re someone like me that spends a lot of time in the WordPress admin, you’ll realize that little details in the UI can make a big difference. Combine that with my already slightly OCD bent, and it probably won’t surprise anyone that I find the lack of a Dashicon for Gravity Forms extremely annoying… so much so that I decided to make a plugin to fix it.
You can download it on GitHub. Hopefully they’ll update the core plugin before too long and this can become unnecessary.
Back in March, I wrote a post about creating sticky footers with CSS using
display: table and
display: table-row. Since I wrote that post, it’s become by far the highest-traffic post on the site. Obviously it’s filling a need.
Since writing it though, I’ve discovered some issues with that approach. Sliders seem to be the biggest problem. For whatever reason, responsive sliders like bxSlider, RoyalSlider, and a few others break when they’re placed inside of a table or an element with
display: table applied. Since the sticky footer method I posted applies
display: table to the
<body>, that pretty much means that responsive sliders break everywhere for me.
