My blog turned 18 last week. It’s now old enough to vote. I marked the occasion by moving it from eightface.com to davekellam.com 🎂🎈🎉
Sorted out how to generate a post title and slug from the body content when you save a post. Useful for micro blogs that don’t really need the title field.
So it seems underscores currently has a platform agnostic solution for sass. Will need to sort out something to generate the css, one of my gulp or grunt scripts, or maybe just CodeKit for now.
Added a colophon to the site
I am remembering the use of animated gifs to indicate that your site was under construction. Is that still a thing?
Posted to Twitter for the first time in a long time tonight. Part of starting to post here. Will sort out how to crosspost at some point.
A rough guide for setting up WordPress as a microblog. It’s definitely possible to do with default themes and off-the-shelf components. I’m going to dork out and customize it. The source will be available.
Starting to customize the theme to work as a micro blog. It always seems to start with my local development environment no longer working. Live cowboy coding used to be so easy, but copy-paste or multi-undo version control sort of sucks.
Wow, it’s been awhile. I didn’t really intend to stop posting for two years, but that’s always how it goes. Between posting “content” elsewhere and working regularly on other WordPress sites, this place sort of became neglected. So, I’m getting this initial post out of the way (I’ve been avoiding it for awhile) and can return to posting quasi-random crap I find on the internet. There’s also a bunch of tinkering to do with the theme, but I can’t really let that be an excuse not to post.
