If you've ever need to re-use content blocks in X Theme and Cornerstone, I came up with an easy way to do it!

It's fairly easy to add a basic shortcode that will allow us to reuse a content block throughout our website! It's light-weight and effective.

We recently released a new website that we are very happy about!
We are happy to report that we recently completed a brand new website for the Minneapolis-based business coaching organization Affiance Coaching.

Getting data for a specific page, including how people arrived there is not actually that difficult with Google Analytics. Figured this out for a client today!

Opinion time! I think selling plugins without perpetual update licenses is ruining WordPress. 
If you’re a WordPress developer like me, you’ve probably seen it countless times: your client never renewed their Gravity Forms or Revolution Slider licenses, and now they’ve been hacked because those plugins are three years out-of-date. Unfortunately, this is far from uncommon. There are reasons those two plugins specifically are the cause of, in my opinion, the majority of all hacked websites: ... Read More

Figured out a nifty little trick that has saved me hours of frustration. If you've ever attempted to "pause" an image slider to troubleshoot some development, I'm sure you've run into the need for this.

There's hope for those of you whose websites feature garbage content.

Search for file names containing a string, using FTP

Okay, this time I reviewed the Jurassic World Website for real!
http://blog.brianjohnsondesign.com/jurassic-world-website-review/
The Jurassic World website is awesome. It's responsive, it's modern, and it has more than enough features and hidden extras to keep you interested.
