WooCommerce SKU Search Direct Link to Product Variation

I was recently working with someone who made extensive use of SKU searches on their website. The issue they were running into when using SearchWP was that while the WooCommerce Product Variations were being found when searching for the variation SKU, the resulting permalink pointed to the parent product. Wouldn’t it be nice if the site […]

Pricing Service-based Projects: Part 2 – Hourly Pricing AKA the Unsung Hero

This is the second part in the Pricing Service-based Project series. Check out Pricing Service-based Projects: Part 1 – My Way or the Highway.

Embedded Gists in a Flexbox Layout: Too Soon?

I’ve been tidying up a bit around here and (for the most part) restructured the entire style layer of Monday By Noon to be both mobile-first and Flexbox based. I’m officially smitten with Flexbox and use it quite a bit now. I got caught up on an issue as I was updating existing content, specifically the code […]

Improving Your Process: Vetting Clients from the Start

I listen to podcasts every day. Many of them focus on business in a number of capacities, many of them don’t. I found it interesting that two podcasts I listened to nearly back-to-back discussed client onboarding. It wasn’t the focal point of either episode, they each touched on the topic for just a few minutes, […]

Taking Value-based Pricing Too Far

Value-based pricing has been a hot topic for the past couple of years. As is often the case with newer concepts, many people have varying definitions of what ‘value-based pricing’ really is. For some it’s simply a flat rate for a project. For others it’s an in-depth analysis of project scope to determine a market […]

Add Pinterest Rich Pin OpenGraph Data for WooCommerce Products

Update: this has been generalized into a WordPress plugin I recently built a WooCommerce project for a client through Iron to Iron and the client requested integration of Pinterest Rich Pin snippets.

Hierarchy is now at version 1.0! Check it out and find out more about the changes that went into it. A long time ago I wrote about a plugin I built that I’ve used on every client site since doing so. It solved a problem that exists only if you use WordPress in a certain […]

Generate Breadcrumbs from your WordPress Menu

I have what some may consider a unique approach to WordPress Menus. Without going into extreme detail (but if you want extreme detail be sure to sign up to get notified when @clientwp Second Edition arrives!) I rarely use Menus for client projects. From time to time however, they’re the perfect fit. I found myself […]

My Move from MAMP Pro to Vagrant for WordPress Development

I recently upgraded to a new computer and in doing so shook up my entire development environment. My last was based on MAMP Pro for a number of reasons. Primarily: it just worked. I rarely had to bring up the GUI, everything was just ‘native’ and I went about my business building stuff for the […]

Forcing a Single Term in a WordPress Taxonomy

Taxonomies in WordPress are a wonderful thing. Their purpose is to facilitate relationships among posts (not just Posts) and they do a great job with it. In my client work there have been many times where a taxonomy was appropriate but I only wanted to allow a single term to be associated to each post. […]
