I’ve been thinking quite a bit about it recently and the more I do, the more the thought becomes ingrained in my mind: Code is Beautiful.
I find myself sometimes marveling at the structures of well written code…neat indentation and clean and clear, self commenting markup, but more than that…a certain eloquence about how some functionality is written – that really gets me excited. I really enjoy looking deep into the heart of some code and seeing what it really is about….seeing a glimpse into the writers passion and emotions…. Continue reading Code is Beautiful
So recently I had to implement 2 sets of sites using WordPress Mu (multi-user) and one of the requirements (for both sites) was to be able to domain map the sub-sites, much like you can do on WordPress.com for a fee. So I went about prototyping this and managed to get it working!
So I thought I would share my joy with a quick guide, because it was great to see it actually work!
What do you need… Continue reading How to Domain Map with WordPress Mu

I was working on a project last week and needed to use the categories in WordPress to seperate content, but also needed to provide an RSS Feed of only one of the 2 categories. So I did a quick Google – because I figured someone else has probably done this before – and sure enough I found this :

So I’ve been tinkering with JQuery this weekend and have built a function for WordPress to display a JQuery accordion of a certain number of posts from a certain category – Title and Excerpt details.
It also can be used across both pages and posts using a shortcode.
Update – I have built a WordPress plugin to run this function and shortcode, and have created its own page here for download and instructions.
So I finally got my game of golf in! Went with a good friend of mine, Kevin Abbott, to the short course in Durbanville at Wagners. It was interesting to say the least…with both of us realizing we haven’t played for such a long time! Needless to say…a score of 40 on a par 3 course was the end result! 🙂 Continue reading Saturday Golfing

Wow..after a weekend and half a week of being off sick, I thought I’d post something random and cool that features a mate of mine – Hugh Lashbrooke follow him on twitter @hlashbrooke.
He built a site for a local South African band called the Brothers Streep and it got featured on a british talk show called the Graham Norton Show. Reason it got featured is that the band wrote a song about Anna Paquin and the show had her on and played the song to her!! Great stuff…also awesome for Hugh as the site was shown on live TV 🙂
Just thought I’d add a quick post just to keep the content rolling while try make my domain mapping with WordPress Mu article a little easier to read. So I thought I’d tell you about some of the stuff I’ve been working on…
