How to Enqueue Google Fonts in WordPress the Right Way

Google Fonts, since being released a few years ago, has been a web developer’s dream. Instead of relying on a small number of fonts or an expensive system to manage custom fonts, you can instead use Google Fonts to put some fonts on your site. With recent editions of a recognition of the font-display: swap;…


Three Thoughts on WordCamp Brighton

Recently I attended and spoke at WordCamp Brighton 2019. It was my first speaking gig of 2019 and I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to the south coast to spend time with the WordPress Community. Last year’s WordCamp Brighton I really enjoyed so it was a great to be able to speak at the event this…


Hello WordCamp Brighton, Dwi’n Rhys!

So, once again it’s time for me to say – hello WordCamp Brighton, Dwi’n Rhys! It was at last year’s Brighton that I made some amazing connections – I’d just recently gone freelance (though I was on a 3 week sabbatical) but the insight and connections were amazing, both from the attendees and speakers, it…


WP Taxi Me 2.6 Released! Price & Feature Changes

Today, with a slightly heavy heart, I announce the release of WP Taxi Me Free & Premium 2.6. The reason why I start with “with a slightly heavy heart” is because Uber recently shut down it’s API, and shut down a bunch of applications, basically anybody who is not a partner. As people who signed…


Three Things Learned at WordCamp Europe 2019

So a week or so ago I headed to WordCamp Europe in Berlin to find out what’s been going on in the community for the previous year. I’ll be honest – I’ve been a bit out of the community and events for the past 6 months as growing a business has been my main priority,…

Guten tag, Dwi’n Rhys! This is my third WordCamp Europe on the bounce (after attending Paris & Belgrade the past couple…


Three Things Learned at Freelance Heroes Day 2019

Recently I attended #FreelanceHeroesDay in Wolverhampton in Mid May in a gorgeous and acoustically wonderful Grand Central in Wolverhampton. This was my first Freelance Heroes Day, as the first one was even before I handed in my notice to go freelance. A year on I’m now fully functioning freelancer over at Dwi’n Rhys, and I…


Hello Freelance Heroes, Dwi’n Rhys!

So it’s been a while I’ve done one of these posts, so I’d just like to say to all those attending Freelance Heroes Day 2019 – Dwi’n Rhys! This is my first conference of 2019, which is strange going all the way to May without attending a conference, but I put it right tomorrow as…


eBay Feeds for WordPress (Free) 2.4 Released!

Today I’m delighted to announce the release of eBay Feeds for WordPress (Free) 2.4! This version (which is separate to the release of eBay Feeds for WordPress Premium 2.4) introduces a new feature, which had to be introduced after eBay changed the way they structured feeds – allowing users to specify the maximum size of…


How To Get a WordPress Page Permalink By ID

When building themes, you occasionally need to be in a situation where you link to something within your theme that is a page or a post within your site. Ideally you want to avoid it if you can, using WordPress’ ability to position things correctly using menus, or widgets, or something within the database. However…
