New Horizions

Today is my last day with First Scribe.  I have accepted a job with On Time Talent Solutions as a web developer.  I will greatly miss my co-workers and hope to continue the relationship that I have built over my years at First scribe.

Update Coming Soon

It has been a while since I posted in my blog, but that is about to change.  I will be redesigning this site to have a more simplistic design, faster loading times, and finally update my portfolio to show the Magento sites I have done recently.  I will also be adding blog post regularly with more tips that I have picked up from the time I started my career as a web developer.

Additions to Meyers on Moose

In preparation for the 15th year anniversary of Meyers on Moose the Meyers have decided to take pre-orders on T-shirts for this occasion.  I assisted them setting up an account on Stripe and integrating their service with Gravity Forms.  I am excited to see how easy it is for friends and family to order their t-shirts.

UPDATE:  Pre-orders page for Meyers on Moose are now live and every test went smooth with no errors.  That almost never happens!

Happy Easter

I want to wish everyone a happy Easter.  Enjoy time with your family and friends, or just play video games and watch Netflix.  Both are good options.

Two new projects on the horizon

With Meyers on Moose complete I feel compelled to work on more personal projects.  Luckily I have a very active mind and it has come up with two new Web projects.   More details to come soon.

New Features added to Meyers on Moose

I have just several new features to Meyers on Moose.   I wanted to add functionality to the user profiles since the users/contributors are the core of Meyers on Moose.  After testing out several user role plug-ins I started to get a better sense of what this site needed and what it didn’t need. Then I found the right User Profile plug-in Ultimate Members.

The last feature I added was custom login, registration, and password recovery pages using forms.   This was one part security and one part style.  The website to me need to not look like a WordPress site and more of a personalized php site. This addition was more for me than anything I think.
