wordcamp-london

I’m delighted to announce that I’m speaking at WordCamp London, happening the weekend of 8th and 10th April, 2016. The talk I’m giving is my “Top Tools to Use for WordPress SEO (to use as well as Yoast’s Stuff)” talk, though this is a full session, rather than a lightning talk. In this talk I’ll…


How To: Save CMB2 Colour Picker fields as RGB Values

cmb2

Recently I have been working on a project where we needed to save CMB2 Colour Picker field as a RGB field. As great as CMB2 is, by default, the field is saved as hexadecimal field (like #FFFFFF).

Before I worked in WordPress development, I worked in SEO. One event that I owe a lot to is MancSAS (formally MancSEO), which was an monthly industry meetup back in the day that saw me network with the right people and ended up finding my first SEO job as well as my first job in…

Happy New Year Everybody! I hope you had a great break and are feeling refreshed for the new year! We took a nice break, we didn’t switch off totally but did end up having a fair few days just keeping an eye on things rather than doing much work. It is definitely needed though as projects…

Happy December! This is an interesting time of year as 2015 has seemingly flown by. Personally I’ve had better years, but 2016 could be a huge year for me. I’ve a lot that I want to focus on and improve on, and now that I’m fairly comfortable in myself, I’m beginning to look outward an…
