Okay, it’s been a while since I shared a WordPress tutorial, and today’s your lucky day.
Of all the many questions posed on a weekly basis from various prospects and customers with WordPress websites, the question of how difficult it is to create a popup, modal, or content overlay is quite frequent.
Many are focused on their line of business and not so much the technical experts of the ins and outs of their website. That said, the creation of popups, modals and content overlays in WordPress might as well be rocket science.
And although it’s not my first time around the block providing this type of WordPress solution for those that desire functionality for their website, I’ll share with you two WordPress plugins I’ve started using on more and more projects. Continue reading

It’s hard to believe a few years has passed since I wrote the tutorial about how to use Facebook’s Graph API 2.X to retrieve the count for a given URL’s likes, shares, and comments.

Well, I guess this means we’re all in the dark now since Facebook’s most recent API upgrade doesn’t allow for such desired functionality, right? Continue reading
Technology to build and develop websites has journeyed quite a ways in the last 30 or more years, yet still has a way to go. Where will websites venture next? No one knows.
