How to Change Beaver Builder Social Icon Style

Beaver Builder has been a great tool that most of my clients are really enjoying using. It makes their experience with their website much less dreadful. There’s so much flexibility for the developer and also for the designer.   I wrote only a couple lines because I didn’t want my social icons to have a background, I felt like the weight of the icons were too heavy and distracting for the area. View the code on Gist. The result is […]

How To Create Rounded Table Rows Using Pseudo CSS

border-radius applies to all elements; but User Agents are not required to apply to table and inline-table elements when border-collapse is collapse. The behavior on internal table elements is undefined. We can, however, create a pseudo block element on table and td (but not tr, because it just doesn’t work) and use that to assign a border-radius. My end goal was to have what appeared to be “rows” of grouped information to make the data easier and quicker to digest. […]

How To Do Modular Custom Page Titles In Beaver Builder

I’m an advocate of modular code and not having to do things twice (or a dozen times). I also actively think about future general changes to a site and a way to do those in as few steps as possible. Beaver Builder is fantastic for speeding up the productivity of site builds and it’s incredibly user friendly compared to other page builders. It’s also developer friendly too! Meaning you can easily create custom modules of your own. You could of course use the […]

WordPress: How to Filter Tag Cloud

Additionally, you can change the tag cloud limit to a number less than 45 too. $args[number] = 10; // New limit for number of tags The tag cloud widget isn’t used much now as it was about 5 years ago. There are warnings that it could cause a negative impact on SEO due to “keyword” stuffing.   Display Unlimited Tags Why would […]

Mac Desktop Items Disappeared

In the midst of the kids changing computers, and changing users because they still want to be who they were originally playing, they get a little impatient. During the last switch, I had the trackpad and one of the kids had the mouse, while I was navigating and clicking so was he. Then, suddenly, the Desktop was nice a clean and ALL the files and folders were gone. I was suddenly worried, especially because my computer is my work place. […]

Free A/B Testing for WordPress

  Making changes and improving an existing site or page is always fun. But, are you really making “improvements”? How do you track this? One must-have if you have a website is Google Analytics. Must, must, must. It takes just a few minutes and I ALWAYS include setting this up with any website I build for my clients. It’s important for you or anyone who manages your website to know the basics of Analytics and just be aware of the […]

Adding Apple Touch Icons to Genesis

For the basic favicon.ico, you can simply add this file to the /images directory in your child theme. But, it’s 2015 and there’s a ton of devices using different sizes for their icons it’s probably best to take advantage of those in the case someone saves the website to their home screen on their device. I thought I’d take some time to research and create a new workflow to solve the problem of my lack of icon usage. Lately, I’ve been using Favic-o-matic to […]
