Last night in the Beaver Builders Slack channel (if you’re into BB and Slack, go check it out, great place to hang around), @danfrybort asked me how I built the semitransparent intro area on this page, which is, by the way, a work in progress, so things may change after I publish this…

Beaver Builder and Simple Image Sizes don’t like each other

By Dave Kuhar | August 24, 2014
Posted in

I had a variety of custom image sizes that I defined by using the plugin Simple Image Sizes (which, by the way, is really easy to use and a time-saver if you don’t want to muck with code). When I used Beaver Builder to rebuild the site I’m currently working on,…

By Dave Kuhar | July 17, 2014
Posted in , ,

It’s kind of painful to look at that title. But today, a new client of ours forwarded a comment made by his current web developer: [your site is] manually coded using HTML, CSS, Javascript, and JQuery in order to provide the greatest possible visibility to search engines over time. This…

By Dave Kuhar | May 27, 2014
Posted in , ,

You wouldn’t think this would be so hard to find, but it seems nobody has written how to put the site description above the site title in Genesis. Or my google-fu is exceptionally weak today. In any case, it’s actually quite easy, and this is a whole lot safer than mucking…

So today I needed to send users on mobile devices to an external URL. That’s easy enough, but the client needed users headed to a different external URL if they were headed to one particular section of the site. In the code below, I use wp_is_mobile to test the browser;…

I hate it when websites pop up ads – or worse, those survey things – over the top of the content I’m trying to read. Seems like this guy feels the same way. The worst case I’ve seen was with a local funeral home. I was sitting in a meeting…

Center menus in Genesis

By Dave Kuhar | November 6, 2012
Posted in , ,

It drives me nuts that there’s no obvious, easy way to center the nav bar in Genesis (or, to be fair, in most WordPress themes/frameworks). Stumbled across this the other day and found it works really well. If you are using a subnav, change #nav to #subnav in the above…
