As a freelance WordPress developer/consultant I rarely work in a team environment. So my usage of Git is mostly for my own purposes of being able to have my code backed up somewhere and the ability to create branches to try out new pieces of functionality without affecting the ‘master’ code base. Recently I was… Continue reading What’s your Git Strategy?
In the Divi Theme Users & Elegant Marketplace group, Brett Bumeter asked, “anyone ever find a quick way to add an onclick event to a Divi Button?” More specifically, Brett needs to replicate the onclick event on a regular html button, but using a Divi button. First thing we need to do is look at… Continue reading Hooking into the onclick event of buttons in Divi
The most popular article on my blog so far (by way of comments on it) is the one on Using anchor links to open accordions and tabs in Divi. It’s so popular that when the demo page broke recently I even had a few people comment to ask if the process still worked with newer versions… Continue reading Using anchor links to open accordions and tabs in Divi – from another page!
So last year I blogged about my list of resolutions for the new year. As with most resolutions it was a long list of the things I want to do differently in the new year, with very little grounding in reality.

I’m happy to report that since then I have (more or less) figured that out. I’ve since realised that one of… Continue reading Remembering Why – Part 2

Now Divi… Continue reading Turn any button into an Add to Cart button
This morning I gave a talk on the relationship between WordPress, the GPL and how if affects your business if you build products for WordPress. I’m looking forward to seeing the video when it gets uploaded to WordPress.tv
October marks my second month at Codeable. My first month was very quiet, mostly because I was still busy with other things in September, including WordCamp. I also took my time getting into the Codeable process, commenting on only a few smaller tasks. I closed my first small task mid October, so I’m considering October… Continue reading Codeable Review – October 2016
Last year at WordCamp I decided I would speak at the next one, this year I did just that. So when I heard that there would be 3 new WordCamps happening in Africa this year (one in Johannesburg, one in Nairobi and one in Harare) I decided on the spot I want to attend all… Continue reading 4 WordCamps in 4 Months
