About

A hand-coded ground-up theme for use with WordPress, cre­ated from de­signs pro­vided through Zeplin.

Highlights

This was a chal­leng­ing pro­ject in many ways.

  • Independently planned and ex­e­cuted sprints us­ing a kan­ban board (Trello) for full trans­parency.
  • Contributed to a pop­u­lar open-source plu­gin while serv­ing a client re­quest for han­dling logged-in browser redi­rects.
  • Ensured frame­work-com­pli­ance by opt­ing for WordPress’ in-built func­tions as much as pos­si­ble.
  • Evaluated op­tions and de­vel­oped sim­ple view pages lim­ited to ad­min­is­tra­tor and ed­i­tor roles for view­ing user sub­mis­sions.
  • Got up to speed with PHP and WordPress' in-built func­tions - rang­ing from
    • op­er­a­tions on ar­rays to work­ing on $_REQUEST su­per­glob­als, or,
    • rawurlencode/rawurldecode for a JavaScript com­pat­i­ble (decodeURI/encodeURI) URL han­dling, or,
    • handy WP func­tions such as trailingslashit/untrailingslashit, and de­bug­ging func­tions such as error_log, or,
    • how to cre­ate a cus­tom fil­ter in WordPress –- an in­cred­i­bly sim­ple task, sur­pris­ingly.
