Typing vs pasting

Never force your users to type out a password (or any long string of characters) by blocking the paste function. Typing long strings leads to MORE errors than simple copy/paste.

Checking In

Checking in to anyone listening. Stay safe. Pay attention. Don’t get lazy.

Plesk looking whipped

What’s up with Plesk UI lately? Especially on Chrome it looks just awful, all kinds of broken. Come on Plesk devs get it together.

Power of prayer

Things get stressful, I try to pray. Not always easy, but always helps to relax and regain focus.

Global performance profiler

Nice new speed checker at fastorslow.com.

Site Health manager

Easy way to exclude certain tests from WP Site Health: Site Health Tool Manager

SSL checker

Excellent (and free) tool for getting tons of site SSL infos: whynopadlock.com

Stay home

Everyone just stay home and hide forever. Brilliant idea.

Edge on macOS

Playing with Microsoft Edge browser on macOS. It’s like 1998 all over again.

Colors and fonts

Nice site for browsing colors and fonts.

WordPress Admin framework

This new Admin Page Framework looks very good. Bookmarked for future use.

Two great places to find awesome plugins: pluginsearch.com and WP’s browse new.

2 things I hate to see in stylesheets: _ and #

VLC media player

Love VLC media player but it fails miserably when it comes to randomizing large collections of mp3 and other files.

Should have kept the filigree

Dashlane redesigned, stating proudly they “removed all filigree”. Should have kept it; the app now looks generic and boring. Killed your identity.

PDF stamping

Working on integration for setaPDF + EDD on the new books subdomain. Good times.
