I build WordPress websites in a local development environment powered by Laravel Valet. I’ve been using this setup for a couple years now. It’s fast, light weight, and it’s been awesome – until it isn’t. 😉 This has happened to me twice in the last 6 months. I run an alias for a few homebrew […]
If you are a WordPress user that takes advantage of custom fields and WP-CLI… this may interest you. Let’s say you’re using ACF field groups on posts in a certain category. You have a new custom field with a default value you’ve added to that field group. You’ve already modified the template to conditionally show […]
You know those moments of realization where you discover something and feel like you’ve had your head in the sand for years? That’s been my morning. I just discovered Dash (or Zeal for Linux/Windows users) and I’m loving it! Dash is an API Documentation Browser and Code Snippet Manager. Dash stores snippets of code and instantly searches […]
TL;DR — I’m a web developer nerd that wanted to test my sites on multiple devices at once. So, I built a thing to do that.

It was a short intro to Jetpack Protect (formerly BruteProtect) and a small .htaccess mod to restrict access of wp-login.php to specific IP addresses. It went well. Hopefully, I got some folks to at least change their admin […]
See kids? Better keep studyin’.
WordCamp San Francisco 2013 was the first WordCamp I’d ever attended. I was lucky enough to go w/ my wife and we both had a great time. We were really disappointed when we realized we wouldn’t be able to make it back for WordCamp San Francisco 2014. (Fingers crossed for 2015!) Thankfully, they’re offering livestream […]
Like many WordPress developers lately my day starts and ends with Varying Vagrant Vagrants. VVV’s really worth a look if you’re still working with MAMP, WAMP, XXAMP, or something similar. Truth. Sidenote: vvv-site-wizard Alison Barrett‘s vvv-site-wizard tool is the hotness. And despite what was preached at our local WP meetup… It does work on Windows. Problem 1: guest additions […]
