    Last Updated: April 19, 2017

    So the last month or so has been a down period for me and WordPress. After sending off the initial version of Giornalismo and the 2.0 release of Nuovo, I haven’t been doing much work in developing on WordPress.

  • Slow work on Fotographia

    Last Updated: April 19, 2017

    So it’s been a while since I posted an update on the work on Fotographia and there’s kind of a good reason for that. Not much has happened since the last update. Things have been really busy around here, particularly with Texas athletic director Steve Patterson resigning last week and a lot of schoolwork due this week.

  • Nearing the end for Fotographia and good news with Giornalismo

    Last Updated: April 19, 2017

    It’s been a busy and fun last couple of weeks of web development for me. Last week, Giornalismo was accepted into the WordPress Theme Directory and with it comes the end of just over a year’s worth of work on the theme. That has also led to really good development with Fotographia.

    Last Updated: April 19, 2017

    So it’s been a couple of weeks since I started the process of creating my new theme, Fotographia. Since the last update, I’ve finished the mockups and begun the process of creating and styling the templates themselves.

  • Speedy development on VideoPlace thanks to Foundation

    Last Updated: April 18, 2017

    Fotographia, my first WordPress theme to use the Foundation framework, took a couple of weeks of development, though outside factors ballooned that number. But VideoPlace, using Foundation 6, took just three days to finish up the bulk of development.

  • Shipping off VideoPlace for review

    Last Updated: April 18, 2017

    It’s done. Well, for the most part. I made the final fixes for VideoPlace and sent it off for review for the WordPress Theme Directory.

    Despite what I’ve done in the past four years in learning web development, I still felt unconfident in my web programming skills. But in creating a sports theme and plugin, I’ve started to feel a lot better and a lot more confident in what I’m doing.
