Here is a fun problem I came a cross today.
The client wanted to password protect one category in their Genesis WordPress site.
I looked for a plugin but they where all too complex for what I needed.
So I wrote this little function and placed it in the theme’s function file:
Remember that this function is written to work with a
Genesis WordPress website.
Floopi beta signup sprites
Floopi Network Beta homepage
Sprites are not created to optimize the size of the graphics used on a site.
They are created to minimize the number of http requests made from the browser to the server.
The idea is that the fewer http requests the browser makes the faster the page loads.
So what can you do to speed up your site?
Decrease the number of components on your page to reduces the number of HTTP requests required for the page to load.

This is going to be awesome to code for! I spent as much time as I could in the beta release so I can’t wait to create a theme that takes advantage of all the great new features.
Email address collection
Easy Sign Up is a WordPress Plug-in that collects e-mail addresses and then redirects the visitor to a url.
The plug-in generates a customizable thank you email that’s sent to the visitor and the visitor’s email and name are sent to an email address of your choosing.
Possible use is collecting email address for a newsletter, or leads for your sales force before redirecting to a brochure.

I just published up the new
Greenville Web Design Site, and I am totally stoked by the new look!
There is a hidden “Easter Egg” in the design doesn’t do much but it’s just for fun.
I don’t consider the site “done” as I am still going to add a few more elements for usability and my portfolio page is still a work in progress.
Please let me know if you find any bugs.
Yes I know some of the
older posts don’t validate.
I have made the choice to stop supporting IE6, it’s
freaking old people! Final thought: jQuery rocks!
