I’ve already explained how to create a theme options page quickly and easily. Creating a custom page for theme options is optimal if you want to offer your users many features. But there’s another way of realizing a page for theme options. For a while now, WordPress has been offering the theme customizer. This is perfect if your theme doesn’t offer too many options. The customizer’s big advantage is its live preview. Every change made to the theme can be checked out before you transfer it to the website. This article shows you how to “feed” the Customizer with your features. Creating theme options with the Theme Customizer is relatively easy and offers its users the big advantage of a live preview before saving the changes.

I've been lucky to work with many well-known businesses and charities, but looking back, my smaller projects were the most satisfying creatively. Often, big brands have already established guidelines which mean there's less room for me to experiment and exercise my creative muscles. I'm not saying brand guidelines are unimportant, but I prefer to work on projects where I feel I add the most value and a little of myself.

Any platform that allows for collaborative play between people will be required to have one very particular characteristic: the ability for players to (somehow) talk to each other. That is exactly why our text-adventure engine built in Node.js would not be complete without a way for the party members to be able to communicate with each other.

There can be many reasons for changing your website’s permalink structure. Maybe you made the wrong choice while setting up your blog, or you want to change it for performance reasons. You didn’t dare to do it yet because you feared ranking losses? Today, we’ll show you how to change your permalink structure without having to be afraid of any losses in the visibility of the Google ranking. The set up of permalinks is one of the first tasks that you need to approach when it comes to a new installation of WordPress and other content management systems. Many website owners put a lot of thought into this process; others might not have thought about an optimal structure enough. Switching to a New Permalink Structure A lot has changed lately. Google values very short URLs much more than speaking URLs, which are being valued less and less. The reason might be that Google is switching to short IDs itself, instead of using the long, speaking URLs. However, changing the structure without a plan can also come with very real problems.
