    Hacking WP Biographia’s Appearance With CSS

    Posted on by

    The contents of the Biography Box that the WP Biographia WordPress plugin produces are easily customisable through the plugin’s settings and options. The upcoming new version of the plugin will add to this, allowing almost limitless options for adding to the Biography Box though cunning use of the WordPress filter mechanism. But what if you’re… Read more »

    Asking For WordPress Plugin Help And Support Without Tears

    Posted on by

    When you release some code you’ve written under one of the many open source licenses that exist today, if you’re lucky then you can expect to get asked for help using that code. Note that I say if you’re lucky. Some people I know view giving help and support as, frankly, a pain; it gets… Read more »

    WP Biographia Hits v2.1.1 In Time For Christmas

    Posted on by

    WP Biographia’s always had the ability to suppress the display of the plugin’s Biography Box for all users; unfortunately that’s been accomplished by simply not installing the plugin. But judging from requests on the WordPress forums as well as emails hitting my Inbox, suppressing the display of the Biography Box for some users ranks highest… Read more »

    Revisiting The Online Me (On A Plane)

    Posted on by

    Although I fly a lot these days, I don’t fly on internal routes in the US that much and so flying Virgin America, which has onboard wifi, is still something that brings out the childish geek in me. In homage to a certain Mr. Aaron Cope, once again I am in the sky as I… Read more »

    Beta No More; WP Biographia Hits Version 2.0

    Posted on by

    It’s taken a while but after 20 commits on GitHub, 1000 odd lines of PHP code, 40 odd WordPress forum posts and, what to me is a staggering, 1100 odd WordPress downloads, WP Biographia finally hits version 2.0. As I’ve written before, this is very much an ongoing learning process and putting version 2.0 out… Read more »

    Posted on by

    I continue to be genuinely gobsmacked at the reception that WP Biographia has received since I first released it in August of this year.

    WP Biographia In The Real World

    Posted on by

    It’s been almost a month since I released the first version of WP Biographia and in that time, according to the stats on the WordPress plugin page, it’s been downloaded 212 times. That’s rather gratifying. Several people have also emailed me to tell me that they’re using the plugin. That’s even more gratifying. But despite… Read more »

    WP Biographia Is But A Quarter Of The Way To WP Mappa

    Posted on by

    In a way, this was all Matt Whatsit‘s fault; he writes very profane and very funny blog posts and reading his recent The Five Stages Of P****d Wife (which you should read if you haven’t already, err, read it) made me laugh, hell, it made me ROFL and LMAO at the same time but it also… Read more »

    Regular visitors to the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Internet that is my blog may be aware that I use WordPress as a blogging platform.

    A Posterous Wish List

    Posted on by

    I’ve been using Posterous for a while now, a quick trawl back through the archives shows the first post I wrote via the service was in August 2009, and I’ve been using it ever since. It’s fiendishly simple and works like this :- I write a blog post in my email client and send it to post@posterous.com…. Read more »
