web developer plugin: display ruler.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

When I recently updated my browser, Firefox, to the latest release and noticed that some of my extensions also needed to be updated. I do not use many extensions, but I absolutely love and rely on the Web Developer Extension. I had not gone through all the drop down menus in awhile within the Web Developer Toolbar, so today I thought I would just look around a bit more…and I am glad I did because I found another awesome tool for web development: the ruler. (This feature was added in a previous version, it is just new to me.) If… Read More »

I Am Back

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

After a few days of not posting here, I am back. Every time the new year approaches, I begin to re-assess what I want to do for the year like most people. Last year I wanted to establish myself and my consulting business, get involved in some big projects, and learn more about WordPress. Looking back now, I ended up working on a few big projects, the most visible (as soon as it launches) is Ookles. I had the opportunity to work with some outstanding talent and I learned quite a bit about CSS, Google Maps, project management, contracts, and… Read More »

ultimate tag warrior wordpress plugin.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I am always looking for new ways to optimize and improve jappler.com and this past weekend I installed and configured a new wordpress plugin: ultimate tag warrior. Not only does it take care of my tagging needs with each post, but it also allows me to create a tag cloud (see the home page), and it automatically adds keywords within my meta tags. If you are new to WordPress or need any of the functionality listed, check it out!

wordpress permalinks fix.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 1 Comment

I had been struggling with the the next/previous links on my WordPress blog now for several months. Nothing excites me about mod_rewrite and permalinks in general. I know both are very powerful, but with power comes frustration. My problem: All my permalinks were working correctly except for the next page/previous page links. WordPress was trying to use the URL: https://www.jappler.com/blog/page/1/ which was not working. My setup: I am using WordPress as a CMS so my site is all in WordPress. My WordPress and blog address are the same: https://www.jappler.com (anything else produced an internal server error). I am using a… Read More »

feedburner (email posts) error.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Thanks for everyone that signed up to read the Evan news via email. I am sorry to say though that what you signed up for was to have these (jappler) posts emailed to you and that is my fault…I forgot to change one piece of code. Please unsubscribe from this by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email you get with this post in it, and then go back out to evan.jappler.com to sign up for what you wanted to actually read (the correct code is up there and tested).

it's a boy!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 2 Comments

I have decided to finally share some awesome news…my partner and I are expecting a baby and being who I am and doing what I do, I have decided to create a web site for my soon to be child so that I can share all the information with my family and friends since many of you/them live so far away. I did not want to be “that parent” who sent billboard sized pictures, or who made you sign up for some photo sharing web site in which you never remembered your user name and password. I am still finalizing… Read More »

It is usually pretty accurate to say/think that when I do not post for multiple days in row, I must be up to something. I have been working on a special project for a few weeks that I will reveal either tomorrow or Saturday. Stay tuned for some big news/announcments in the next two days! [tags]jappler.com[/tags]

jappler.com for at least two more years.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

When I first chose jappler.com as my domain name I was not sure if I would stick with it…but now two years later it is really starting to stick and I just renewed my domain name for two more years. Heck, one of these days I might actually start using a jappler.com email address. For now, I still stick with the Mac tax email address. [tags]jappler.com[/tags]

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Last night I was working with my good friend Ken and he asked me about possibly being a guest writer on my blog for an occasional Ken post. I thought it over and decided to give him an account. Stay tuned for a Ken post in the near future and it will be written by “kenp”. Welcome Ken! [tags]Ken Pesanka, jappler.com[/tags]
