    Walentine O'Toole is an Omaha law firm who were looking for an updated, modern, and mobile ready website. This site is fully mobile responsive, and sparked the idea for my WordPress plugin AW Simple Sorter. I created the sorting mechanism used to sort attorneys by practice areas, once I completed the site I took that mechanism and converted it into a WordPress plugin for others to use.

  • WordPress Yearly Category Archives

    AW Yearly Category Archives

    The plugin's purpose is to allow WordPress users to display archived posts by year from specific categories. WordPress has a core function called wp_get_archives() which will display yearly archived posts, however you cannot narrow it down to specific blog categories. The idea came from the need to do this for a client website. After a great deal of searching I found that there really wasn't a great way to do this. So after spending many hours coming up with a solution to the need on the client website, I decided to then convert it to a plugin so that others could use it. I found many forum threads with people looking to do what I also needed to do, so I knew it was my chance to contribute back to the WordPress community. The plugin can be found here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/aw-yearly-category-archives/.

  • Weeping Water & Nehawka United Methodist Church

    Weeping Water & Nehawka United Methodist Church

    The Weeping Water & Nehawka United Methodist Church site started as a purchased WordPress theme from Themeforest.  After some custom theme code changes to modify the behavior of some of the functionality the theme offered it became a great little site for a wonderful couple of churches.  The theme mods included changing the code so that every single thing that is editable by the church happens in the WordPress "pages" rather than the "theme options" area.  This made it that much easier for Pastor Sandy and her husband to keep the site content up to date and fresh.  Fancybox functionality was also added to the site to give it some additional fanciness!

  • Memories for Kids

    The Memories for Kids site was a full custom WordPress build for a non-profit organization in Omaha which grants wishes/memories for kids who have a terminally ill parent.

    Anything WordPress

    WordPress started as just a blogging system in 2003, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more. WordPress is limited only by your imagination. WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architectured personal publishing system built on PHP and MySQL and licensed under the GPLv2 (or later).

    Just kidding. That would require me to actually move away from my iMac, which I’m not terribly fond of doing…unless of course it’s deer season. I’d gladly have a beer with you though!
