Welcome to my Wiki!

The purpose of this site is to document my design and development process. I’m a frontend developer and I use WordPress in many of my projects. I have a lot of experience using WordPress plugins, building custom functionality, and building custom WordPress themes.

WordPress Codex

WordPress Codex

These are the parts of the Codex I refer to most often.

WordPress Plugins

Plugin Repository

I have a trusted list of plugins I use in almost every project. Most are freely available on WordPress, but I've also purchased a handful of premium plugins that have more than paid for themselves.

Free

  • Ninja Forms
  • Yoast SEO
  • Disqus
  • WP Optimize
  • Disable Comments
  • WooCommerce
  • Really Simple SSL

  • Advanced Custom Fields Pro
  • BackupBuddy Pro
  • WP All Import
  • WP All Export
  • s2Member Pro

Cloud Server/VPS

I use a VPS on DigitalOcean to host my sites. No cPanel; just the terminal. After two years of learning to use the command line to manage a LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP), I have dozens of code snippets I refer to as I work.

Configure MySQL

mysql_secure_installation

Restore File Permissions

find yourwebsite.com/ -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
find yourwebsite.com/ -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

Add Sudo User

sudo adduser new_user_name
usermod -aG sudo new_user_name

Change User Password

sudo passwd new_user_name

Zip & Unzip a Directory

zip -r your_directory.zip /var/www/html/your_directory/
unzip your_directory.zip
