Cape Town event tip: one of my favorite places in Cape Town: the City Bowl Market on Hope.

Every Thursday evening there's wine tasting for R50 (7 wine estates this time), and a gazillion options of international food. It's just awesome. :)

The event info for this week:

Couldn't have said it better myself: <- if you're living abroad, or planning to move to another country, read every sentence in this blog post!

"So you look at your life, and the two countries that hold it, and realize that you are now two distinct people."

"...having to start from zero and rebuild everything, having to re-learn how to live and carry out every day activities like a child, fundamentally alters you."

"’s often part of the reason you left in the first place. You wanted to evolve, to change something, to put yourself in an uncomfortable new situation that would force you to into a new phase of your life."

"There is a palpable fear to living in a new country, and though it is more acute in the first months, even year, of your stay, it never completely evaporates as time goes on. It simply changes."

"...few things are more profound than just starting over with the basics and relying on yourself to build a life again."

Do you know any truly #seo  friendly  #Wordpress  themes?

I'm looking for fast-loading, clean code, no framework, yet with good design/typography/features.

At this point, I'm surprised about how sloppy the code is even in premium themes, but hoping to find a hidden gem thanks to you guys... ;)

WordPress friends: I have an odd problem and would LOVE some help: 

When uploading images in .gif format, they don't resize to thumbnails. When uploading in .jpg and .png formats, they resize fine. 

Any ideas why gif format doesn't work anymore? Tips for solutions?

Better description by someone else with the same issue:
Hi,. Ever since upgrading to WP 3.5, .gifs are no longer being re-sized correctly to thumbnails on the homepage, categories pages, and archive pages of my site (everything worked before upgrading). .J...

All my #wordpress  friends - I need your help:

I'm looking for a slideshow like this: but for just regular Wordpress (not Genesis theme).

I'm pulling my hair out, please let me know if you have any suggestions...anything that would allow me to show selected pages' featured image in a slideshow (widget), with the intro/excerpt, and a link to the page.

It sounds so easy (in my head), but sooooo hard to find it. Am I missing something...?
This plugin allows you to create a simple responsive slider that displays the featured image, along with the title and excerpt from each post.

Hey +Tess Neale 

How could I miss this post? Anyways, glad you sorted it out.

I would suggest WooSlider from WooCommerce. I used them on couple of clients sites but right now I tend to do it from scratch. 

Let me know if you need any help. I also compiled a list of useful responsive slider approach here:

It's time for the LAST Fashion Market for the year!

If you love fashion, vintage, accessories, jewelry, woodwork and decor - don't miss this event on the 8th of December!

As always, there is also delicious food from around the world - so bring your fashion friends around for breakfast or lunch. ♥

+Rafiq Phillips That's awesome. :) I top up twice a week with veggies from there - Thursday evening market, and the Saturday morning market. So amazing to be able to always eat fresh, locally produced stuff...and get different things depending on season.

Looking forward to the #ToyRun on Sunday:

If anybody in #CapeTown would like to donate toys (or anything else) please let me know and I'll make sure it gets there:

"As the teddy bear insignia is so closely identified with the Toy Run® , every year we receive a vast majority of soft toys suitable for very young children, but there is a desperate need for older children (teenage girls and boys) toys:

- Any sports equipment: cricket sets, basketball hoops, balls of any type (soccer, tennis, rugby, etc)

- Costume jewellery & craft kits, toiletries & make-up for older girls

- Puzzles & board games

- Fun stationery, drawing & art equipment

(Please no toy guns of any sort – these will not be distributed)"
