Fortunately at my primary job I was able to get buy-in on my proposal to finally move off of the our current horrific CMS (here is my full write-up on all of my complaints about Hannon Hill’s Cascade Server) and move everything to WordPress. It’s going to be an amazing example of the power of WordPress and how it can really makes things a lot simpler for everyone involved with the backend all the way to the end users. I’ll definitely put up a post about the benefits and everything involved with out transition once that project is farther along.
Unfortunately, this also bit me in the ass as one department here had already signed a contract to have a marketing firm redesign their website and that firm was one of the most incompetent web firms I have ever seen. They hardcoded things into the theme by page name where it wasn’t needed making it impossible to add sections without modifying the theme directly as well as even hardcoded things into plugins making them un-upgradable. I have a giant list of the completely idiotic things this firm did that proved they had no clue how to work with WordPress but I’ll just let that go.
So go over to the VU Systems Team’s new blog and read my new post on creating a simple jQuery accordian menu for WordPressComments: 0 Tags:
