Gutenberg Testing – Legacy content works well in classic blocks.

I’ve been testing out Gutenberg on a test site and have been very impressed. Sure, it’s not perfect yet, but it’s getting better. One of the tests I completed was seeing what an old post would do when edited in Gutenberg. I picked a post from 2006, clicked Edit, and it worked great. Gutenberg put […]

It’s time to get ready for Gutenberg.

Gutenberg is coming to a WordPress site near you soon. How soon? The goal is to ship in April 2018! That means you need to start getting ready now. Guten-What?

Currently, the Slick module is in the very early stages. I really need a project where I can use it and really dedicate time to developing it. Until then, […]

Beaver Builder – Add search to mobile.

I’m a fan of Beaver Builder, but no search on mobile? What’s up with that?! We can easily add it back, though. You just have to add a function to your functions.php file and you’ll get a search box under the header. This file contains bidirectional Unicode text that may be interpreted or compiled differently […]
