Hooky Woo WooCommerce Hooks Customizer

By Jason Robie

Well, I finally did it. 🙂 I released my first plugin on the WordPress repo (or is it called the “directory” now?). Lots of folks don’t really encourage this type of behavior. There are plenty who believe the hassle of the support requests outweighs the joy of sharing something cool with the world. For me, … Continue reading “Hooky Woo WooCommerce Hooks Customizer”

I ain't scared…. much….

By Jason Robie

Alright. I had to make a video embed shortcode for a client and figured some folks may want to peek at it and maybe use it. Basically, this allows your clients to add videos into their pages, include some padding and float, yet maintain the beauty of responsive design.

Check Yo Self!

By Jason Robie

All the SEO efforts in the world will do you no good if you fail to evaluate your results. Much like anything you strive for, losing weight, gaining muscle, learning a new skill, etc., you won’t really know if you are improving if you don’t measure it somehow. I’m not going to get into S.M.A.R.T. … Continue reading “Check Yo Self!”

Learn the code, you will

By Jason Robie

Another one of the sage lessons Sean taught me was once you start digging into the code, specifically he was talking about HTML, you will start to see patterns.  It doesn’t take an HTML expert to recognize these patterns and be able to start to make some edits.  Before we go any further, a disclaimer: … Continue reading “Learn the code, you will”

We Aim to Try

By Jason Robie

Franzy!  One of the more mellow WARPs on the Loon Mountain Ski Patrol and a good friend.  That was one of his sayings and it sort of stuck.  There’s a handful of amusing stories floating around the patrol alum.  Stories of heroism, tom-foolery, bravery, stupidity and yes, drunken exploits typically involving a hot tub, a … Continue reading “We Aim to Try”

Mulligan?

By Jason Robie

No, but really… It has truly been a bit of a whirlwind for the last few weeks.  We migrated south to Boulder from Fort Collins.  That alone is a bit of a time-suck.  And my work with Codegeek has really picked up lately.  I currently have a site “fix” at the top of my list, … Continue reading “Mulligan?”

Picking the Perfect Phrases (for SEO)

By Jason Robie

Here’s hoping your 4th of July was explosive!  I read, this morning, that the Fort Collins police received 200 complaints about fireworks over the weekend.  This tells me 2 things.  First, I still don’t understand why fireworks are illegal.  Yes, they can be dangerous but so is a car, motorcycle, bicycle, big wheel and slip … Continue reading “Picking the Perfect Phrases (for SEO)”

It is no secret there is no shortage of people out there willing to take your money in exchange for “improving your presence on search engines” or “improving your exposure on “businessListings.com”. They will claim to “update your web presence, add videos, improve your listing on Google, etc. While this all sounds intriguing at the … Continue reading “Expose Yourself, Yourself!”
