Kakapo Recovery

To show my support for the Kakapo Recovery team and their vital efforts, I have adopted a small, female kakapo named Marama (after the Maori word for “moon”).

Oops! Twitter Feeds Now Working

Posted within Announcements Development on by Cornflower Design

I missed the June announcement from Twitter informing everyone that their API v1 was about to be retired – meaning that feeds on my homepage had been failing to update.

Along with the introduction of rate limits and ditching support for RSS as a response format, API v1.1 has implemented OAuth 2.0 for its authentication. Its not the most straight-forward thing to get your head around, but I found a useful post on CodeForest that helped me to update my own WordPress widgets.

A New Look

Posted within Announcements on by Cornflower Design

Its taken far too long to get around to doing it, but I’ve finally developed a new WordPress theme for this website. Some aspects are still work-in-progress and I’m sure there will be a few tweaks to be made but I’m pleased with the outcome.

Research to Action

Posted within Announcements on by Cornflower Design

I’ve just uploaded a new website, Research to Action. Commissioned by CommsConsult and designed by Liminal Design, this is one of the more in-depth WordPress-based sites that I’ve developed – requiring the creation of a new theme and several new plugins and widgets. There’s still a little tweaking and user-testing to do, but I’m happy with the result so far.

A new domain name has just been snapped up for use on a future project. There are no firm plans for yet, but I’m thinking along the lines of an ecommerce web site.
