WPsuck

WordPress is dead (and doesn’t know it yet). Gutenberg is… wrong on so many levels. But, I can’t develop an alternative for this devlog, yet. So, for now, hacking to the rescue! For a specific usecase (slideshow) where I need(?) … Continued

Drupal to WordPress: Migrating Database, URLs, Generating Posts…

The long and winding road of (low-level) migrating content from a Drupal website to WP. Workplan: MySQL and SFTP → SQL → CSV → scripting → import plugin → theme hacking…

Twenty Twelve Landing Page

Isn’t WordPress overkill for a startup’s “coming soon” page? Yeah but: would need a brochureware site soon enough, and subscribing for notifications? So, no, WP it must be. (The core web app would obviously run on a “real” back-end — Node, … Continued

Code Versus Data in Customized WordPress Models

Surprised, at first, that Codex says to (re)register custom post types (CPT) at “init” — an event (WP calls them “hooks”) triggered early in the processing of every request. Custom taxonomies, too. Why repeat this messy setup (WP even registers its … Continued

Lightview WordPress Integration

Was trying to integrate Lightview into a WordPress page. It isn’t open source, and code’s obfuscated (WTF?), so I’d never use it myself — but a friend needed help… ;o) Anyway, the grouping feature seems broken, and I can’t “use the source”… … Continued

Publishing My Bookmarks

I want to publish bookmarks. Not so much individually, but more in collections, and tagged, to accompany blog posts, eg as bibliography.

Disabling Pagination in Arras Archives

Removing the pagination links (next/prev) from archive.php:27 was trivial: <div id=”archive-posts”>     <?php arras_render_posts( null, arras_get_option(‘archive_display’) ) ?>          <?php if(function_exists(‘wp_pagenavi’)) wp_pagenavi(); else { ?>         <div>             <div><?php next_posts_link( __(‘Older Entries’, ‘arras’) ) ?></div>    … Continued
