Another WordPress theme development project. This was a fun project which some unique challenges. The great layout was done by the very talented Luke Despatie
3 Jewels in my Crown was a very fun WordPress theme to work on. It features many different custom image sizes based on a Featured Image and does all of the resizing work for the user. One really great feature is the ability to select certain posts as “Featured’ by using a custom taxonomy I set up. I could have used a category for this but wanted to avoid any duplicate content issues with search engines.
Overall this was a great learning experience for me and I really dove into the lower level features that WordPress has to offer.
This was a very fun project to work on.
In response to many video parodies and tributes found online, Les Stroud tasked me with creating this portal for people to share either videos they created or found online.
I did all the artwork and programming on this project which included a custom built content management system for handling submissions, managing contests and many other features.
This is the official website for Les Stroud’s newest television series: Les Stroud Beyond Survival.
The artwork was created by Luke Despatie & The Design Firm and I provided all the development for the project which included the creation of a Flash-based custom video player.
As the resident “web guy” for Les Stroud Productions, I was tasked with maintaining and improving upon the flagship website for Les Stroud.
Built on WordPress this site has seen many changes since I started working on it and is a great example of a “working” site. Many website are built and then left alone but this site is constantly evolving.
Whether it be the addition of jquery scrollbars and lightboxes, HTML 5 video fallback for iOS or Flash video on the homepage (with graceful fallback of course) this site is always looking to provide it’s visitors with a great user experience.
The original artwork was done by Luke Despatie & The Design Firm.
I just competed work on a WordPress theme for Luke Despatie & The Design Firm based on the very clean and elegant artwork provided by Luke. The theme itself has all the regular functionality you would expect of a WordPress theme with the addition of being able to update the full screen home page image and caption message via the CMS.

I just committed a complete overhaul of my Easy Analytics plugin. It was in dire need of it and I am far happier with it. It is class based now with proper localization techniques, and a much better looking (albeit simple) interface. If you have it installed already, thanks and you should get the notification soon. If not, download it here.

I have just committed a slightly updated version of the plugin to the repository to allow for localization.
This is a very simple plug-in that allows any WordPress user to add the Google Analytics tracking code snippet to their site.
All you have to do is install the plugin, activate it and enter your UA-XXXXX number. It will output the snippet just before the </body> tag of your site.
For custom themes, be sure you call the wp_footer() function in your footer file as this plugin utilizes it to insert the code.
