“Snazzy” Archives at thinkimagine.com

I use “Snazzy” Archives (wp.org page) and you can view mine but it is more interesting when you go back in time to view months where I have more posts. It has not been updated in a while but it still works great.

Another great option is the JetPack Infinite Scroll + Masonry and some detailed notes on making a responsive Pinterest-like Grid of posts.

Review of WordPress Face Detection Cropping Plugin: My Eyes Are Up Here

Review of WordPress Face Detection Cropping Plugin: My Eyes Are Up Here

What a great name for a plugin: “My Eyes Are Up Here

It helps get around the problem of WordPress cropped thumbnails that always take the center of an image – but sometimes you have a a face or other point of interest that is not in the center.  From an aesthetic point of view, if you’re using the rule-of-thirds when you frame your shot, the subject is always off-center — but ultimately  depends…

Notes on WordPress 4.0 - “evolutionary”

Notes on WordPress 4.0 – “evolutionary”

Evolutionary but not revolutionary. It’s a big new number but a “regular” number of new features—some really useful, however. The other good news is that fewer big changes means fewer chances of breakage while updating.

new media library uses space more effectively: “grid view” added to the “list view”

Foobar ($14)

Foobar is my favorite alternative to Hello Bar. $14  is a one time payment at CodeCanyon and it features a powerful customization panel. Customizing colors, font size, shadows as well as social icons and much more. You can save multiple Foobars and assign to to specific pages. It’s great also for occasional ‘emergency’ notices also.

attentionGrabber (free)

Foobar was my favorite, but attentionGrabber is nicely designed visually. The transition effect is smooth. Like Foobar, you add official Twitter and Facebook button next to the post link. So with regards to the backend and in terms of design attentionGrabber is the best.

Google “local” “places” and “+”

Google “local” “places” and “+”

It’s another Google riddle: What’s local yet keeps moving?

I had a listing on Google “local” and then that became a Google “places” page and now it’s a “Google+” page. I’m sure they’ll change it again soon enough but for now it’s nice to have more integration with reviewers identities. BTW if you are a client that I have worked with in the past… please consider writing a review for me on my…

Akismet Error Code #10003

Akismet Error Code #10003

Akismet Error Code 10003  Screen Shot 2014-04-23 at 3.05.58 PM

This is a pretty new development. Akismet is not free anymore – but they do have a free version for “personal” use (well, it’s listed as “pay what you want”).

If you see this error then don’t panic. For that matter, in general, don’t panic. I think for now you can leave things as-is and my guess is that it will just keep working for a good long while. Till they decide to get more strict.

How to remove a Google account from “Choose an account” page list

google-sign-in-remove-button-missing

Here’s a quick tip on something very simple that I could not figure out for the longest time. One of those bugs that was somehow thought to be a feature at some point in the development process over at Google. Too busy not doing evil, I guess…

The graphic above is very straightforward and familiar to anyone who uses more than one Google account.  Easy to add or remove accounts, right? The tricky…
