My WordCamp Vancouver Slides

This weeked at WordCamp Vancouver I gave a talk called “Customizer-ing Theme Options: A Visual Playground”. I covered the basics of the Customizer API and did a case study with Nubrick, a Twenty Twelve child theme I built last year to learn about leveraging the Customizer API. Here are my slides:

I got an awesome WordPress job at 10up!

10up-logo_darkToday is my first day as a Web Engineer at 10up!

I’ll be doing WordPress development full-time (eventually), and as if that wasn’t cool enough already, they’re generously going to donate the balance of my time (see: a lot) to contributing back to the WordPress project. So all that contributing I was doing on the support team, the docs team and in core I get to continue doing as part of my job. I’m totally pumped.

If you’re interested, I also wrote a blog post about it over on the 10up blog.

Download Shortcode v1.1: Now with subdirectory install support

Just released v1.1 of Download Shortcode, with added support for subdirectory WordPress installs.

Thanks to a report from Stuart Sequeira, I realized I’d forgotten to re-add subdirectory support when I rewrote it in v1.0. I also regenerated the pot file to make sure the strings are included.

In short: Download Shortcode provides a shortcode for wrapping media links that forces them to download. It’s great for providing easily-downloadable MP3, jpg, mp4 or other media file types.

Want to contribute?

Download Shortcode is in active development on GitHub too, so if you’d like to contribute, pull requests are welcome.
