WordCamp Boston 2011

I’ll be there bright and early with bells on. Well probably not, but at least I’ll be there. I will be blogging from WordCamp all day, so stay tuned!

New Theme, New Blog Post

Being on vacation has many bonuses. Rest, relaxation, and I finished a theme I’d been working on for a while. I hope this means I will start posting more, but as history has shown that’s not always certain.

Style My Tweets

This is a plugin that uses the Themekit for WordPress to add a style options page to style the Twitter widget that comes with Jetpack by WordPress.com.

That sounds like a mouthful, but it’s really quite easy to implement. For more information check out the following links:

jQuery Flickr Plugin

There isn’t a lot to this code, but it’s easy to use. You can also nest the calls, which can come in handy when pulling public photos.

Here’s an example of the code in use.


$.flickr.api({
    apikey:"",
    apiObject:{
    	method:"flickr.nameofmethod.here",
        num_of_photos:"5"
    },
    callback:function(data){
    	//this is where you work with the data you get back

    }
});
