Update (August 8, 2013): This does work with both Genesis 1.9 and 2.0, the pre-HTML5 themes, and the new HTML5 themes. I think I need to start by saying that this post is in no way a complaint about StudioPress themes or the Genesis framework. I switched to Genesis and StudioPress late in 2012 and […]

FooBox is a relatively new lightbox plugin for WordPress sites that is responsive and, in my experience so far, works very well across multiple devices. I currently have it installed on a number of websites including this one, and you can see it in action on the single portfolio pages and on a blog post […]
Update: One year after writing this post I deactivated Widgetkit on this website because this was the only post/page where it was needed, and it had thwarted my efforts at only loading its scripts and styles on just this post. This tutorial is still valid, and the code still applies…Widgetkit just doesn’t work on this […]

I recently noticed that sometimes the Joomla core contact form will give an “Invalid Token” error page when a website visitor uses the contact form to send a message to the owner of the website.

If you’re using a self-hosted version of WordPress you may have noticed that WordPress is keeping copies of every post revision you make. While this can be helpful in rolling a post back to an earlier version, the number of revisions can quickly get out of hand. These revisions are stored in your database, and once a post is published you probably don’t need them anymore. There are a few plugins that can help you manage these revisions, but in my opinion, if you can do this without adding another plugin, so much the better.
Let’s face it: the default Joomla 404 error page, while useful and perhaps necessary, is one of the uglier web pages in existence. The shock value of seeing one of these pages for the first time is memorable, and diminishes only slowly over time.
2010 is now one week old. Have you updated the copyright date in your website(s) yet?
