Updated: An earlier draft of the post was for v4.0.0-alpha.4. A reader pointed out that the demo no longer worked with the latest update. The following example uses the current alpha release and is actually simpler and uses more native Bootstrap components. I know that Bootstrap 4.0 is only an alpha release, but as the […]
Recently I learned that the plugin Instapress is not PHP version >5.4.0 compatible. The consistent error received seems to come from the removal of ‘call-time pass-by-reference.’ The error probably looks something like this: Fatal error: Call-time pass-by-reference has been removed in /site/wp-content/plugins/instapress/instagram.php on line 306 While it’s annoying, it’s a relatively easy fix.

My current projects have kept me in Laravel quite a bit lately. One of my favorite parts of Laravel is migrations. I’m also a big fan of comments in my database tables because inevitably when I go back to work on the project in six months, I won’t remember what a column was used for. […]

Update – ThemeFit has since closed up shop. If you can still find a copy floating around some where, I’d give it a try. Long before “responsive” was the norm, ThemeFit was pushing the edge of mobile web development. It was relatively unheard of to have one layout for a site that would function well on […]
To fuel my Disney World obsession when I can’t be in Florida, I started developing what would become Mouse and Memos.com in early 2011. After many late nights and sharing my idea for a personal site with a few friends, I was convinced to turn it into a “public” site that anyone could use. One of my […]
I can’t claim full credit for this one. My brother-in-law Brett used a killer group from Miami called Groundwave to design a newsletter from him. The concept turned out so good that he asked me to build a new website based on the newsletter layout. It wasn’t simply a “copy and paste” but it always […]
