A little friendly competition in the office to see who has the most followers requires some tracking, and what better than to use the Auditor. So I started work on using the helper functions, and some code I had to grab from the twitter APIs. To follow this you’ll need the Auditor at v1.6.2 and the logger plugin activated.

If you’ve been using our weather widget plugin you will have noticed by now it no longer works. The reason is Google quietly retired their weather API that we were relying on for the data.

Our Spots for WordPress plugin is designed to make your content management life with WP even easier.

Template tags Spots provides 2 template tags… continue reading ⇢
Imagine that you’re building a theme, and in various places in that theme you have small elements that you’d just love to content manage. It could be items in a footer, in the header, or for use as widgets. Things like a copyright notice, a credit line, some free form spaces and so on. In the past, coding for this… continue reading ⇢
