MRWweb News, In Brief

Mark Root-Wiley presents a slideshow on stage at the Hub coworking space in Seattle.

Thanks to my friend Mike Brogan for the picture of me presenting and the Seattle WordPress October 2013 Meetup.

It’s been a busy and exciting past few months and I wanted to share some quick updates with you all!

Site Launches

After almost 10 months of planning, building, and training, I helped Communities In Schools of Washington launch their new 13-site network. You can read full details of the project in my portfolio, but, in brief, this was a total overhaul of multiple sites, each for an affiliate organization serving a different community. It was incredibly challenging and incredibly rewarding.

I also helped launch the site for Kuaʻāina Ulu ʻAuamo, a site for which I did development but not design. I was lucky enough to meet some of their awesome staff when I was in Honolulu this summer, and they’re doing some really awesome work.

Presentations & Plugins

I presented about my thinking and work on “Inline Access” in WordPress at both the October 2013 Seattle WordPress Meetup and InfoCamp Seattle 2013. The latter presentation expanded on the first one, and I’ve embedded the presentation below. It should mostly make sense out of context, I hope.

WP Inline Access: The Plugin

Based on the positive reaction I received (Polish!) to that idea, I put together a real plugin for WordPress that implements inline access for sites that use any of the default WordPress themes. It’s still very much a work in progress, but it’s really cool to see the idea come to life.

More Plugins

At the end of last month, I had a fun time on Facebook totaling up the download for all my plugins.

Since then, the total downloads has increased to 24,266. The Feature a Page Widget should eclipse 20,000 downloads sometime next month!

Have a great weekend and come back Tuesday for a post on useful web tools that will save you time (at least when you need free pictures of cats).
