Deeper Nested Menus
Like Bootstrap, BootScore only knows menus with a depth of 2. Bootstrap because it wants to in principle. BootScore because it follows its base as strictly as possible. Level 0 entries are listed horizontally in the header, and the corresponding level 1 entries are listed vertically below. Thus, the top-level entries group the entries below […]
From dev to prod: Shortcodes in Menus and elsewhere
Maintaining a WordPress-based site often means working with two instances — one for development and one for production. Both have their own domain, a specific URL, used to link one site element to another. Manually or automatically. This implies that a woman has to replace this URL prefix with the other one in all places […]
Feeding the Footer III: Your Copyright Line
In the European legal area, exploitation rights inherently belong to the author of a work. She does not have to do anything else. In the American legal area, things are different. There, every work falls into the ‘public domain’ by default. Only when the author actively claims her ‘copyright’, the work belongs to her.
From plain to fancy: Capturing the Change
Yesterday I was asked to document the transition from the pure, simple bootScore site to a fancy one. The latest version alone would not visualize its predecessors. True! To solve that issue, I should integrate a slider showing them as a series of images. And indeed, doing so would also be an opportunity to evaluate […]
Divide and Conquer: Separated Bilingualism
I had set up my old site, fodina.de bilingual. With the help of WP-Globus. As nice as this worked for years, at last WP-Globus got lost. Thoroughly! When I edited the German text, it made the English disappear. And vice versa. Something like that shall not happen to me again. The restoration was complex and […]
Feeding the Footer II: The ‘Subordinated’ Menu
A footer is an area for more off-beat references. They are more offside insofar as our readers expect to get access to what they came for — directly after a page is loaded, directly on top of it. At the bottom — where they first have to scroll — they are looking for minor aspects. […]
Compliance Programming Tooling
Feeding the Footer I: The ‘minor’ stuff
What is important is in the eye of the beholder. A lawyer would perhaps include the imprint, the image credits, or the data protection concept. And not to forget: the open source compliance artifacts. The reader, on the other hand, would see it differently! She wants content. Entertainment. Real ‘content’. Not this legal gobbledygook.
Shortcode for Font Awesome Icons
Somewhat frustrated , I have to add that embedding ‘own’ HTML code into a WordPress/Gutenberg block via ‘Edit as HTML’ occasionally destroys the type and content of the block : If the code is suspect to the Gutenberg editor, it replaces the work already done with an empty HTML block . Annoying if you just […]
Font Awesome & self-made css-Classes
The form of my scope list convinced me to talk about Font Awesome Icons and custom CSS classes in bootScore, first. A pure HTML list is ugly, in my case: downright unreadable. No amount of rewording or restructuring helped. Shortening it was not an option either. It should continue to function as a complete scope […]
From ‘Ugly’ To ‘Nice’: Migrating to bootScore
That I would have to give up YAML-CSS had quickly become clear to me at the beginning of the year. What I should replace it with, not. I wanted to stay with WordPress. And to recycle my old content. So, all I had to do was to replace the theme. Theoretically!
Again About a Dead Horse: YAML-CSS
Recently I wrote about the ‘expiring’ editor Atom. Now I’ve stumbled upon another dead horse in my stable: YAML CSS. That has nothing to do with YAML ain’t Markup Language. It’s a modular CSS framework for truly responsive websites. For years, it served me faithfully, first in Typo3, then on WordPress. And now?
