FlagTag WordPress Plugin

Seeing as how I’m big on getting behind your sports team, I saw an initiative by White Wall Web (Disclaimer: I used to work for them) to get the internet into the World Cup Feva by adding what they call a FlagTag to your site.  I think it’s fantastic, see my FlagTag on the right of the site.  But what most people (who cant code) don’t know how to do is add the code to their website.  So I thought, let’s use my WordPress experience and slap together a plugin.  No code editing, just a simple download and upload, activate the plugin, and choose your flag! It’s that easy.

Download it here or here.

Update: This product has been retired.

Code is Beautiful

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.

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”

WordPress JQuery Accordion

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. It is now retired.
