Gotta catch ’em all! If you’re like everybody else managing a website online, you’ve dealt with the annoyance of getting into your site analytics to check out your traffic only to find that it’s filled with a bunch of spammy, junk websites as your top referrers.

Get rid of those nasty edges! While resources like the CSS Triangle Generator are particularly useful in getting what you want without having to give much thought to the matter, what comes out in production doesn’t necessarily always go as planned.

“There’s more than one way to skin a cat” as the old idiom says, but this one has nothing to do with the internet’s favorite furry friends. I’m talking about properly enqueueing your Wordpress scripts and favorite web fonts by utilizing the ever helpful wp_enqueue_scripts instead of becoming the barbarian who loads everything inline.

Pretty much anytime Apple releases a new flagship operating system, there are a small, but dedicated number of users who get the urge to update, but somehow forego it. Who are these people? Hackers, tinkerers, and even some average users who want just a bit more freedom over their user experience. I’m talking, of course, about jailbreaking the iPhone and that “give me the new version” feeling they’re bound to experience.

I recall being completely blown away by the first Mass Effect back in 2007, a rare occurrence for me. I didn’t normally buy games new, but given Bioware’s impressive take on the Knights of the Old Republic series, I was willing to make an exception—this one felt special. At the time, Mass Effect was quite intriguing but had not yet gained a foothold as a solid piece of science fiction lore. That however changed very quickly.

Antihero. Oftentimes synonymous with the term “badass”, the legendary archetype once known for being the polar opposite of the hero, has successfully adapted to the mainstream spotlight. If there’s a character you’re meant to feel guilty about loving, it’s them—and they’re exceedingly good at getting under our skin… and into our hearts. Making us all wonder: what exactly makes a hero these days?

The web is a medium (finally) built upon great visuals, firmly integrating information and design in a way that is vastly superior to anything before it. Content and presentation is as intertwined as possible, to give great form to function. But the web is a whole different world for many with disabilities, who require special devices to aid in parsing content and doing the everyday tasks the average person takes for granted.

The Ultimate High Ground It’s easy, while going about our daily lives and routines to forget to look upwards at what actually surrounds us—we are all on a giant rock floating through space, surrounded by other celestial bodies that are and have been within our reach, to research, examine, and one day—travel to.

With the ease that blogging provides for opening up discussion, it is easy to forget that quality content still exists in other forms. Podcasts can be a fantastic resource for fledging designers seeking guidance, and sometimes someone to listen to is all you need to gain the confidence to make the jump into design as a business.

In Wordpress, featured images or “post thumbnails” are one of the most easily utilized and well appreciated ways of engaging users in your articles. That said, Wordpress–as it has transitioned more and more towards becoming a fully featured CMS—still defaults to post thumbnails being turned off.
