Headless(-ish) WordPress Example

This is a bit of an odd one but possibly odd enough to be interesting. The Scenario We can’t run WordPress on the University servers but we’ve got a bunch of people who have content on WordPress and like that editing experience. They also want VCU domains which are much harder to get for off-site […]

WP API Posts Plugin

This is a little plugin I wrote while working with Jon Becker to build out the Ed Leadership Hub site. Essentially, we wanted students to be able to fill out a quick form and build out a profile page. As is my my wont, I went the Gravity Forms route. They could give a short […]

WP JSON to Timeline JS

As part of some thoughts on building out a series of reflective views for student portfolio blogs, I thought seeing your WordPress posts in the TimelineJS view might be a useful way to look back over your progress. I intend to wrap this into a custom spreadsheet template and/or a plugin1 but figured I’d sketch […]

Vue and the WordPress REST API

I’ve continued to play around with using Vue and WordPress’s API. The Vue stuff is entirely new to me but it’s pushing my javascript knowledge. The main reason I’m excited about the WordPress/Vue (or whatever framework) combinations is simply speed. If you have any doubts give the pagination at the bottom of this demo site […]
