Stucker Video

Bringing Stucker’s website up to date was easy with TwentySeventeen. The built in video header is perfect for the job. We highlighted his extensive recording experience with a gallery of industry Playbills and a sortable (paritial!) list of plays he’s done through his career.

Sometimes you find a Child Theme that looks almost perfect, but you want to make changes. Asking the Google for “child of child theme” turns up futile until you turn to GitHub.

Behold, the cousin to the child of child theme, the theme customizations plugin.

Re-Installing WordPress

There are times when it’s appropriate to reinstall the latest version of wordpress. This is not nearly as scary as it sounds, especially if you use the one-click install for WordPress that mosts hosts provide.

  1. Via FTP,  rename the root folder of your website. I tend to append the folder name with .old.
  2. In your Control Panel, remove the now renamed installation from the installations list. Removing it from the list will not delete the files in the renamed folder from your site.
  3. Create a new WordPress install using the one click install system. The new directory should be the same as the .old one.
  4. Replace the contents of the wp-config.php file from the .old site in the new site’s wp-config file.
  5. Replace the wp-content folder from the .old site to the new. I usually rename the new wp-content by appending it with .fresh and then bring the old one in.

This was a very satisfying project to create with a talented artist over a long weekend. She needed a fast portfolio / resume site and had her content close to ready when she contacted me. It only took 24 emails over 5 days to go from project start to launch. A simple contact form and resume download makes this Twenty Seventeen one page site a smart placeholder for things to come.
