wordpress localhost subpages not working

I’ve been banging my head against the wall because a local install of a wordpress I’m developing would for some reason not let me go to any wordpress subpages. I kept looking at my permalink settings, they looked fine, tried adding mod_rewrite to my htaccess file. It didn’t make sense because the admin pages were […]

Forever Stubborn

I was reading a Twitter conversation between two programmers a couple months ago. One of them said “I’m not a good programmer, I’m just stubborn.” I completely related and I’ve had that statement on my mind ever since. Despite the dozens and dozens of tutorials over the last few months, despite building my own projects, […]

Jolene Kelley website is live

Jolene Kelley is a Craniosacral Therapist in Portland, OR. She hadn’t updated her site in several years. Her previous site was not responsive and while it did a good job of delivering information, it needed a refresh. Jolene was also frustrated that she was unable to update the site other than adding and editing posts […]

Termina plug-ins for sublime

  I’m using Sublime and iTerm. I like iTerm a bunch, I like Sublime a bunch, but I’m thinking about keystroke conservation… For now I’m going to install the Terminal package in Sublime so I can launch iTerm from a keystroke instead of command tabbing all the time. I may consider looking into Sublime libraries that […]

Quick Start Guide for WordPress development on OSX

I found this great WordPress guide on installing a local development environment using brew and npm for wordpress, php and mysql. With the db running through brew services. Loving it. Install was fairly easy, with a little bit of troubleshooting (why oh why did I not document the troubleshooting part!). Here’s the site: http://www.brodybits.com/wordpress/osx/homebrew/2016/03/09/quickstart-wordpress-testing-with-osx-homebrew.html I cannot for the life of […]

Gendered Dummy Data in Online Programming Courses

The test data/subject matter of all these programming courses I’ve been taking is always either dungeons and dragons or games or robots, seriously. Where are the programming classes that use glitter or barbie as test data/subjects. What about cleaning products, vacuum cleaners, diaper brands, laundry detergents.  No wonder men are so reluctant to share home […]

Signing Your Emails

In my job search I’ve been emailing many relative strangers lately. I’ve always just used “Thank you” but I’m getting tired of it. I found this helpful article. I’m probably just going to mix in “best, warm regards, and many thanks.” https://www.forbes.com/sites/susanadams/2013/09/27/57-ways-to-sign-off-on-an-email/#4061f6cf25d0    

A great in-depth article about custom fonts in wordpress

I’m impressed with this very in-depth article about ading custom fonts. If you are looking for a specific answer, it’s easy enough to scroll down and find what you are looking for, but if you want a full primer, this has lots of great info. Adding Custom Fonts to WordPress with @Font-Face and CSS3

Don’t Panic

So… a few thoughts. The moral of this story is: I am relearning old (to me) stuff (JavaScript, CSS3, HTML5, bootstrap, mysql, WordPress) and learning new (to me) technologies (React.js, Angular.js, Ember.js, Node.js, git) at home, alone, utterly alone. So very utterly alone with my screen full of letters and number and brackets. Developing alone, learning […]

ReactJS For Stupid People

This person is hilarious. It’s also a great perspective on what React is and isn’t. http://blog.andrewray.me/reactjs-for-stupid-people/ Laughing outloud to this little tidbit: There are three separate, competing quickstart guides. I’m overwhelmed and I’m not even drunk. The sidebar below that is straight out of my nightmares, with sections that obviously shouldn’t be there, like “More […]
