2014 has been an incredible year! I want to pause to rejoice, reflect upon and remember all that has happened this past year.
Brian Lowe, the lead pastor at Exodus Church where I attend, preached an excellent sermon on Psalm 48 about the Israelites rejoicing, reflecting upon and remembering all that God had done for them. As I look back at 2014, I want to do the same.
It’s so very easy to look at the year to come and dream about all the exciting things that will happen and forget about the exciting things happened in the year before. … [continue reading]
I embarked on moving my site completely to SSL, and part of that process was using the HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) header on the site.
With all of the security breaches that we have seen just this past year, it makes total sense to want to move everything over to SSL. Google is already starting to favor SSL sites in search results, and it provides more confidence for your visitors when they see that your site is secured via SSL.

In this short tutorial, we will learn how to hide the WordPress meta generator tag.

Let’s dig into how to hide the admin bar in WordPress.
When the admin bar was first introduced, I didn’t particularly care for it. Over time, I have gotten used to it being there and actually enjoy using it, but there are certain situations where hiding the admin bar just makes sense. For example, if you have a membership site that is run on WordPress, your users will likely never need to use the admin bar. In this case (and many others), you will want to hide the admin bar to prevent confusion. There are two ways to do this, … [continue reading]
Today I’m going to show you how to load TypeKit in the TinyMCE Visual Editor in WordPress. That was a mouthful.
I’ve just recently implemented the editor style feature in my own custom theme for this site, but during the implementation, I quickly realized that I had a problem. I use the Proxima Nova font from TypeKit, and I was having a heck of a hard time trying to figure out how to load TypeKit inside of the TinyMCE Visual Editor.
TinyMCE works by loading the editor area inside of an iframe, which means that the contents inside can’t be … [continue reading]
