On my client’s website’s WordPress admin page, there was a nice and well-intentioned message to add a “Spread the message. Stop the virus.” bar to the website. I was curious so instead of just clicking no, I clicked yes. I figured that I would get an instruction or how-to page. But no. After I clicked […]
Custom Fields – missing?
The Advanced Custom Fields plugin is a very useful plugin for creating a layout for clients to enter formatted content in the WordPress admin. The client or user will be given an interface that has rows and entry fields for the content that is required or even multiple instances of that content, like a listing […]
Genesis – Modifying the Archives Title
When showing a category of posts or an archive page while displaying a breadcrumb, the breadcrumb will generally show something like “Home | Archives for Blog”. It’s perhaps not desired or necessary to show that it’s an archive page. So we can edit the breadcrumb text in Genesis by adding this code to the functions.php. […]
WordPress – add versioning to CSS stylesheet to force reloading
Browsers cache stylesheets, which is good. It keeps sites running faster. This is bad though if we make stylistic changes to the stylesheet when WordPress’s version isn’t upgraded (WordPress adds a version number to the stylesheet which coincides with the WordPress version number).

PNG Images Getting Blurred when Scaling in CSS
Images always get blurred or pixelated when they are scaled up. But when getting scaled down they generally only blur slightly because the computer is trying to interpolate more pixels into less pixel information. But they generally, PNG images still look acceptable when scaling down. I completed a landing page design that showed a PNG […]
Add a “Read more” to blog post excerpts
WordPress will display an ellipses after an excerpt by default. I feel it’s more user-friendly to show a “read more” link or something to let visitors know that they can click to read more even if they can click on the post’s title to view it.
Breadcrumbs – fix html tags
I’ve been working on a site where they have registered marks (®) for their product names, which are also used as page titles and are therefore shown in the menus and breadcrumbs.
Genesis Navigation Menus – Styling Parents with Child Rollover
