Museum Core 2.1 is now available from Download now


music, WordPress, and other assorted geekery

I wrote a plugin, inspired by my wife, which is designed to give you dirty looks for pages you haven’t updated recently. It’s actually functional, because it gives you a rundown of your oldest content by last modified date. And it does stuff like this:

Twenty Fourteen


This year, I’ve made it a goal to get more involved in WordPress. Not just peripheral, documentation projects, not just committing plugins and themes to the repository, but also contributing (in whatever form it takes) to core.

Here’s something I learned the hard way today.

If you are using Genericons in your WordPress theme, and you’re enqueueing it like this:

wp_enqueue_style( 'genericons' );

…you’re going to run into problems if Jetpack is enabled, because Jetpack uses the same method. Normally this wouldn’t be that much of an issue, but their version of the Genericons font is older and doesn’t include some of the newer icons — which will just be missing if you’re using the Jetpack version. So, to resolve this, you’ll need to make your Genericons handle more unique, e.g.

wp_enqueue_style( 'mytheme-genericons' );


This has officially been fixed and will be resolved in the next Jetpack release. There’s also a discussion over here about possibly including Genericons in core, which I wholeheartedly support. Thanks George and Jeremy for being so on top of things that they happened to notice my little blog post out in the middle of Nowhere, Blogosphere USA.

New game show idea:

Cooking/dance competition

Contestants must cook a meal (think Iron Chef) while their favorite music is playing. Music must be danceable, and contestants are expected to dance while cooking. A panel of judges scores the contestants based on their dancing as well as the quality of the food. Contestants lose points if they spill, burn themselves or their food.
