Jeng: Why do designers get to pick themes? They should produce a design for a developer to develop!
Monsen: My understanding is they restructure the entire theme every update.
Swickheimer: I’m not the developer for the site. This isn’t a PSD-WP project or anything. This was a “why won’t my VC tabs work?” project.
Gonzalos: I’ve identified the why, but I’m looking for the best “how” on a fix that will survive the horrors of this theme she chose.
Goeken: Evidently Divi already has a drag-n-drop builder, but she wants this additional drag-n-drop builder to play nice on top of it. Complete designer mentality.
Vogeler: Im going the other way this time, i usally convert the css/html static into theme code, and do the core functionality of the theme last, im doing the core functionality first then implementing the theme from static css/html
Vogeler: Jeng http://i.imgur.com/vQPbRlF.jpg got windows 10 installed
Jeng: Fris: did you use one of the free VMs?
Vogeler: No i installed from iso
Jeng: Back in a while; have to help a friend out of a misconfigured DNS mess.
Lokan: If someone had a sense of ethics, they wouldn’t work on things like that ;
Wiechman: You cant do quotes within quotes like that opsec :p
Lokan: I had a similar job situation once where the client had some lady who worked for her out looking for themes and bought some garabge theme
Lokan: She tells me “here’s what we’re using and this is the design i want implemented”
Lokan: I said “no, you work on the design, i’ll use a starter theme to implement it”
Lokan: She insisted we use it because they paid $47 for it and the boss will want to know why we’re not using it
Lokan: So i said she could tell the boss “the guy left because we’re using something inappropriate and refuse to listen to sound advice”
Jeng: I once had to explain to a boss why I refused to use $25K of code that a board member insisted we outsource to an Indian dev firm. That was fun.
Jeng: Bosses have a hard time understanding “In my considered and well-educated opinion, it’s a piece of crap.”
Lokan: Well, there’s crappy devs everywhere.
Lokan: A lot of people think you can just buy an old car and a *****driver and suddenly you’re a “mechanic”
Igus: Hi, how to remove home from slug on child slugs on multisite setup?
Lokan: Defoe: we’re not buying it here.
Lokan: Go back to httpd and listen to what thumbs has been telling you.
Verna: Opsec, I got no idea what he is talking about and how to do it what he is talking about.
Lokan: You have to actually *read* what he’s saying and follow the links.
Boon: Very relevant its the same if he would speak chinese and I hawaian
Lokan: You don’t want to learn. that’s been clear watching you the last hour
Cata: Opsec, okay I want, I know how to make urls on local it works
Barera: On target it doesn’t somehow
Lengle: Its clearly wordpress overwrites
Lokan: That website you posted in #httpd is horrible by the way. do yourself a favor and close that tab.
Brostrom: It seems that wordpress adds that home after the httpd rewrite is done.
Lokan: It’s got lots of incorrect “info” on it
Jeng: Is opsec revealing his bdsm knowledge?
Noice: Jeng, seems like so. 😀
Ziad: I used custom-permalinks
Hacking: But it caused 404 not to appear
Blaize: So I need custom solution.
Dunnaway: Jeng, “extensive” doesn’t come close
Mcmarlin: Hey, guys, I have a weird fatal error showing up in the dashboard. It says unidentified function wp_widget_rss_output in the dashboard.php file. I checked wp-includes and found that the function exists in widgets.php
Guilbeault: Any idea what can cause the problem? I’m having some strange issues lately regarding the widgets.
