Redacted Font

Tired of lorem ipsum dummy text? Too distracting for you or your clients? Try the new Redacted Font from christiannaths.

You can also try BLOKK which tries to solve the same problem for clients, not to learn latin.

Hook.js – Pull to refresh for the web sites

Nice little javascript that imitates pull to refresh feature from mobile phones.

If you are cleaning your .psd files, this can become very handy. Download the script.

WordPress Theme Development Checklist

As a WordPress theme developer, I always try to make the theme as much complete as it is possible before the final release. However, a lot of times, while I’m working on it, I miss to implement some of the functionalities or to style some of the elements.

Because I don’t want to make same mistakes in future, I decided to make printable version of the WordPress Theme Development Checklist from WordPress Codex. Although, the list is available at the WP Codex, it isn’t enough readable and it’s easier to have the cheat-sheet printed on paper.

If you have any requests or additions to the cheat-sheet, you can leave them in the comments. I will be glad to expand the list in the next release.

Feel free to share the checklist on Twitter, Facebook or any other social network that you prefer.

Top TextMate Themes for Web Developers

I recently tried to make some change in my working environment and the first thing to do was to find a new theme for TextMate.

It appears that it is harder to find new theme than you think. The excellent list at tm-themes.com is offline (don’t know why but it was a great TextMate themes site) or download links at official MacroMates theme gallery are unavailable. The pursuit for the new theme started from Twitter, Google and went all the way to official theme gallery.

Small Business WordPress v1.1

I’m very happy to announce update v1.1 for Small Business Theme. This update brings much needed features for further customization of the theme.

New features in v1.1

  • About, Services and Contact boxes are widgetized.
  • New widgetized footer area.
  • All widgets have options for changing title and number of displayed posts.
  • Now it is possible to add same widget multiple times.
  • Option for disabling default portfolio feature. This is useful if your portfolio doesn’t have categories.
  • Portfolio page template. This template is used when you disable default portfolio feature and it will display all your portfolio posts. Advantage of using this template is that you can set position of your portfolio link in top menu.
  • Option to change default “Portfolio” title in the top menu.
  • Various small css changes

If you already bought the theme, you just need to re-download it again to get the newest version.
