  • Unveiling the World of Workshops at WordCamp Europe 2023

    Over the years, I have attended numerous WordCamps, including a few workshops. However, at this year’s WordCamp Europe 2023, I had the opportunity to participate in several workshops and I would like to share my experiences. First and foremost, I want to clarify that the purpose of this post is not to criticise in any…

  • WordPress fullsite editing using blocktheme for developers

    WordPress fullsite editing, or “Site Editing” as it’s now referred to, has been met with lots of resistance from developers, myself included. However, since revisiting it after avoiding it for months, I’ve really warmed up to it as a developer. Especially as more of a backend developer, the thought of not having to write much…

  • Blocktheme; a simple vanilla block theme starter kit for developers

    Blocktheme may not be a revolutionary tool for WordPress theme developers, but it serves as a valuable resource for my own purposes. However, if it proves useful to other developers, I encourage you to dive right in by accessing it from my GitHub repository: [https://github.com/eirichmond/blocktheme]. This resource provides a streamlined workflow that includes only the…

  • WordPress full site editing is pretty cool!

    Yeah, it’s official: this site is now a WordPress Block Theme. Not only is WordPress full site editing pretty cool, but it was also fun to rebuild! Yes, it’s pretty basic—it’s a blog, what can I say! However, the concept of full site editing in WordPress is proven, and the speed at which it was…

  • Democracy

    I get democracy, I like democracy… I just don’t think our (inc. current UK) leaders get it! You can thank your Greek ancesters for democracy… without their movement the common man would likely still be a slave to some kind of insatiable debourched leadership who’s intensions only intend to serve themselves! …oh wait… hmmm! ‘demos’…

  • Passing WordPress configuration settings to your Javascript files

    I always pass data to Javascript from PHP but I’ve never thought about passing local wp-config defines but there is no reason why you can’t! May come back to this to add more information but for now its a quick n dirty documentation of what I’ve just setup in a local environment. In my wp-config.php…

  • Script removal or deleted HTML in WordPress Multisite post content

    The title is a little misleading but my guess is this is what WordPress developers will be searching for so, to help other developers who stumble across this bug, by the way, it is not a bug it’s about permissions, here goes! There is a function called map_meta_cap in /wp-includes/capabilities.php – this takes 3 parameters…

  • How we live streamed the WPChelt meetup with StreamYard to keep the community connected

    Last week, late on Friday afternoon, we decided to cancel our meetup. Given the meetup was on the following Wednesday it was a big ask to figure out how we would deliver something under the current circumstances. The current landscape is changing rapidly and with a growing number of people now working remotely it only…

  • COVID-19 Conceptal Community Support Website using WordPress

    Given the Covid-19 outbreak, I wanted to do something for the community using WordPress. With the concept of isolation upon us, I wondered if I could build something that might help those going into isolation and those who can help others in isolation in their local area. The idea is that anyone in the UK…

    WooCommerce how to make a user exempt from tax charges

    I’ve been working on a WooCommerce project recently, the client asked if I could isolate certain users who would need to be exempt from being charged any tax or VAT on products sold through their WooCommerce shop. This particular shop was behind the standard WordPress login so it was simply a case of: adding a…
