    Here is how I am adding custom jquery to a wordpress theme I am currently developing.. in other words how I am making an inbox in the header show on click and then disappear when you click on something else.

    First I had to call the jquery script in the foot.php of my wordpress theme (you want it being the last thing loaded)

    Who the hell does president Obama think he is coming all the way from America just to tell us.. no wait threaten us not to leave the EU! I think that it is a bit rich for someone from the so called “democrat” party to come here and tell us what to do when we go out and vote not only that it is extremely hypercritical of Obama to say that we should…[Read more]

    Here is a good if statement for echoing out the number of notifications a user has in buddypress and IF the count is 0 then nothing is displayed.

    • Another useful piece of buddypress code would be

      <?php echo bp_core_get_userlink( bp_loggedin_user_id() ); ?>

      which will display not only the currently logged in users name but also will make it a link to the users profile page.

    Stackoverflow/stack exchange is absolutely appalling! If you have a complex and difficult programming question don’t bother going to that site.. because if it your question isn’t something like “How do you echo out hello world?” then you aren’t going to get any answers! Although to be fair I don’t really understand peoples motivation to give…[Read more]

    Here is a quick trick for menus I have just found out (trust me to be doing it the super hard way for all this time). Basically you don’t need top and bottom padding when aligning text all you need to do is set the line height. For example If you are struggling to get your links in your menu centered vertically because you cannot calculate the…[Read more]

    I have came across something really weird in wordpress and I don’t know what is causing it!

    I started developing a theme in wordpress using the twenty thirteen theme however when trying to create a post grid layout for the home page a weird space appears at the end of the row of posts (see attached image) this is making aligning my posts in the…

      body.blog article, body.archive article {
      width: 12.5%;
      text-align: left;
      margin-bottom: 10px;
      position: relative;
      float: left;

    • Basically this problem is not caused by wordpress at all instead it is because the container div that my posts are in is a set width that will not change and because I was setting the widths of my posts too large (padding also makes the width larger) this meant that the posts on my first row did not all fit into the total width of the container…[Read more]

    Here is my quick review on Ampps a virtual server that lets you develop sites locally on your computer!

    Something that people rave about with ampps is the fact that you are able to start devloping your wordpress site within just a couple mintues of downloading the thing! This is because ammps comes with softaculous which allows you to quickly…[Read more]

    • okay here is a quick update, the ammps lag was actually due to my internet messing up and disconnecting.. now that this has been fixed I no longer get any lag however I still get the problem where if I just turn my computer off without disconnecting ammps it messes it all up.
