At Sprout Apps we’re going to be using the awesome NinjaDemo plugin but we wanted to allow for a demo to be created without directing them to the bland demo site running Twenty Twelve :). Here’s the solution I came up with: Add some AJAX handlers on the WPMU demo site running NinjaDemo. I wish […]

Setting up a new server on MediaTemple (ve) tonight and I was getting some errors with webmin and Ubuntu 8. Apache2 was running fine but I couldn’t get webmin to start/stop the service. The error I was getting was: “Failed to start apache” “etc/lsb-base-logging.sh: line 22: /dev/console: Permission denied” … The solution was simple: When […]
SVN ( version control ) is one of the key ingredients in my development process, not because I work with other developers and version control is necessary but I need to keep things organized and in sync with other development environments ( e.g. my laptop ). In a future post I’ll explain the setup, since […]
Its pretty easy to add a loop to a page template but having pagination will provide some roadblocks if you’re trying to use the standard previous and next template tags. The solution I came up with this afternoon is pretty basic and if there’s a better alternative I’m open to hear them. Place this after […]
