WordPress Development

As I build WordPress websites for my clients, I share what I learn here as tutorials.

Core Functionality Plugin

A WordPress theme should only contain that which relates to the look and feel of the site. Any core functionality belongs in a plugin.

Adding fields to the Media Gallery

Here’s two ways to customize the media uploader: adding a “Photo credit” section, and adding an “Include in Rotator” selection.

Building a Genesis Child Theme

A question I hear all the time is “how do I build a child theme?” This is a tutorial that walks through my process, using an actual client site as an example.

Driskill Theme

I’m excited to release my first publicly sold theme, the Driskill. It is a responsive, mobile-friendly child theme of Genesis, and is available from the StudioPress marketplace.

Image Override Plugin

When you upload an image, WordPress will automatically scale and crop it to many different sizes. If you’re not happy with the auto-crops, use this plugin to upload an alternative image.
