This updates Drafts Dropdown’s styling to better match the styling in MP6. This post is part of the project: Drafts Dropdown. View the project timeline for more context on this post.

  2. GameTonight? 2.0

    GameTonight?

    Spurred on by the discovery that all of the data sources I’d been using had disappeared, I spent yesterday frantically getting GameTonight? working again; and did so by finishing the 2.0 re-design. If there is a game tonight, then the background changes to an interior shot of the appropriate stadium/arena. When there isn’t a game,…

  3. GameTonight Non-Functional

    It looks like Yahoo! killed their pro sports team iCalendar feeds, which GameTonight relied on for its data. I’ve found alternative data sources, but it will take a little time to get them all converted and the times aren’t getting parsed right from all of them (game times are off by a few hours in…

  4. RAMP 1.2 and a RAMP Post ID Meta Conversion Plugin

    We released an update to RAMP yesterday to address a compatibility issue introduced in WordPress 3.5.2 as well as adding support for the post locking feature that will be arriving in WordPress 3.6 and addressing a few other issues. This is a recommended upgrade for all customers. We also released the RAMP Post ID Meta…

  5. GitHub Activity WordPress Plugin

    I wanted to better expose stuff I’m doing on GitHub that I may not be actvely blogging about1, so I decided to pull in my GitHub activity feed and show it in the Projects page sidebar. I created a WordPress plugin for this that includes a shortcode and sidebar widget. I’ve submitted it to WordPress.org,…

In this release we’ve: implemented new archive views for image and video post formats updated Facebook posting so that images and videos are sent in a more “native” format to Facebook cleaned up spacing between posts on mobile devices changed our color set provider to ColourLovers fixed a number…

  8. Capsule 1.1

    capsule-512

    I’m very pleased to announce the release of Capsule v1.1 (and Capsule Server v1.1). In this release we added some pretty handy features along with addressing the usual array of 1.0-related issues. The download and an online demo are available on the Crowd Favorite website. Some of the highlights in the new version include: A…

  9. Customer vs. Product Support

    How to best provide support for the software you create is an interesting point of deliberation. I’ve gone through various stages and iterations, all different as circumstances have evolved, but all driven by the same question: How can I create the best experience for the user in a way that is sustainable? On a podcast…

  10. Twitter Tools 3.0.4: Twitter v1.1 API Compatibility

    I’ve released Twitter Tools version 3.0.4 which now uses the Twitter v1.1 API. Since Twitter has turned off the 1.0 API, this is pretty much a “must upgrade” situation. If Twitter Tools has been active for you over the last few days, you’ll need to do a little cleanup: enable the Tweet admin screens delete…

  11. Social 2.9.1

    We’ve released version 2.9.1 of Social; a WordPress plugin from MailChimp that gives you these great features: broadcasting your posts to Facebook and Twitter allows commenters on your site to log in with Facebook or Twitter allows comments on your site to be broadcast to Facebook or Twitter pulls in reactions from Facebook and Twitter…

  12. I *think* I’ve worked out the necessary changes for WP 3.6 post formats compatibility in FavePersonal (the theme used on alexking.org).

    This post is part of the project: Post Formats Admin UI. View the project timeline for more context on this post.

  13. GistBox – Organize Code Snippets →

    When people talk about using Capsule for code snippets I think that’s fine, but that’s not what it’s designed for. GistBox is beautiful (appears to be free – no idea how they plan to support it) and finally provides the ability to tag Gists. This is great for code snippets, lousy as a developer journal. That’s the difference between Capsule and Gistbox – both look to be great tools for different jobs (though you certainly can put code snippets in Capsule if you’re also using it as a journal).

  14. GameTonight, now with Event Times

    I’ve updated GameTonight to show the time of the event. This is also included in the JSON API and Status Board output. No guarantees that the event times are correct, but they are faithfully represented from the data feed. This is something that I put off for three years because I was having all sorts…
