Custom Category Icons

I mentioned in my new template post that I might add back the Category images to the posts. Well, I thought I would give it a try, but the first step was to see if something existed in the WordPress Plugin world.  There were a few options, but they either only posted the images on the Category template page or only did one image per post.  And all methods required modifying the template files. So, no go on that, time to re-add my original hack. I had previously created a way to pull up the Category description and image in Continue reading Custom Category Icons

Author Box Adding Additional Contacts Hack

After posting about another app created by a developer in the Baby Steps: BB Dev BBM Group, I asked the group if anyone wanted to post an article on my blog about what is like to work with the BBM Group. Since the developers in the group are always thanking each other for help, I figured it would be good for developers outside of our group to know that there are groups who like to be helpful to each other when developing apps. And, since it is always good to get multiple opinions, I figured it would be good for Continue reading Author Box Adding Additional Contacts Hack

A message from PlayBook

Last night I received my free BlackBerry PlayBook.  I immediately downloaded the updates and began to familiarize myself with it.  The first thing I need to get used to is using my finger pad instead of my nails. Touch response is different than with my phone.  But, I am getting used to it.  After a little trail and error, I have figured out how to load music, photos and files from my desktop.  I have loaded a few free apps to help with the flight layovers I’ll have this weekend.  Later, I think I will give more of a review.

Updates to the site

Well, it has been some time since I’ve made any updates to the site.  I initially used a theme that gave a portfolio look to the site.  Unfortunately it was a little hokey, so I wanted to update it.  In the last year I also picked up a new hobby and a wife, in that order.  The wife-to-be had an interest in screen writing, so I decided that I would take over a Meetup group that would help me help her get a screen play published.  Since I took over The RTP “Let’s Make a Movie” Meetup Group, I have Continue reading Updates to the site

WP People

This plug-in will search a post and find names that match database records of people maked with the WP Category in the XFN Links. When it finds a match, it will replace the name with a link to the person. There is a administration screen for adding people and their bios to the database and viewing the current people marked for the filter. More than one person can be linked on a post. A individual name will only be linked once per post. Continue reading WP People

WP Mixed Tape

This a plugin that will take shortcode for track listings and make a “Mixed Tape” by turning the mp3 file links into music players and creating a play list of the tracks. The play list is a second shortcode that can be placed anywhere in the post. The play list can also show the tracks as a single album by changing the type. This will only show one link to the artist name added to the play list. The play list icon can be changed to show the mixed tape, cd, cd box, head phones or any image. The image should be small enough to fit inside the play list. Continue reading WP Mixed Tape
