I spent the past 30 days and nights in Minnesota working on my internship with Best Buy Corporate. Wow. I can tell you I had a great time over the past 30 days doing programing full time and hanging out with other programers who are as savy as myself. It’s not over yet! I am slated to be back in Minnesota after brief break from being away from NY for such a long time. I am going to be home for the next week catching up of being with people, celerbrating my birthday, and also heading to a wedding in Boston. read more ‘30 Days and Nights, Sounds Like A Movie, but Life

When you are writing a plugin that uses Ajax in the front end, you must use:

add_action( 'wp_ajax_nopriv_<ACTION NAME>', <YOUR FUNCTION> );

…as doing…

add_action( 'wp_ajax_<ACTION NAME>', <YOUR FUNCTION> );

… is only for logged in users. So if you have a plugin that operates no matter which way users interface with the plugin, you must provide both action calls to make sure it all gets processed. Helpful tip. :)

Will be back shortly…

So you all that read this blog have at least some use of WordPress right? Good. That’s a start. 😉 So I knew this book was coming out and I have met two of the three people behind it: Hal Stern, David Damstra (Have not met.. I do not think) and Brad Williams.

I have note gotten it yet, but going through the pages that you can read via it’s Amazon page, I am mentioned in the acknowledgment page in Brad’s Paragraph. I feel really honored to be mentioned.

This book goes through everything you need to know to use, setup, and customize WordPress to it’s full advantage. It does not mention WordPress 3.0 and it does differentiate WordPress and WordPress MU where it is now one fork.

For those trying to make a better WordPress site this book might be for you! It’s one of many out there, but this one from the quick read that I have gotten does a pretty good job of being very through. So new… old… need a reference? Go get it or the E-Book version on Wrox (Good for those people with the iPad).

So I thought I give you all an update. I am still traveling back and forth between NY to MN for work, working on web design and other related Best Buy/Geek Squad issues. It has been frustrating to say the least to fly back every two weeks. I am meeting tons of new people while in Minnesota. Starting tomorrow I will be staying for an entire month, but I was allowed to have the entire week off from April 30 through May 10th. It just so happens that it falls during my birthday. I also have a wedding to attend to in Boston that week, so it works out perfectly.
