CMS Tree Page View has been adopted — by me!

I’ve been a part of the WordPress ecosystem for a long time now. Such a long time in fact, it’s been the platform upon which I’ve built my livelihood.

It’s no secret that I strongly believe in a powerful on-site search. I was thrilled to see this article outline some really great implementations of on-site search, but one specific bit stuck out to me: A couple weeks ago, we dug into internal site search & found that in some cases, searches performed by only […]

Restricting access within the WordPress admin can quickly become an intimidating place to work.
