I’m so incredibly thrilled and humbled by this opportunity.Continue reading “I’m Joining The VIP Team at Automattic”
If you don’t want to (or can’t) add your single Staff Member template overrides to your theme, you can do so by writing a simple WordPress plugin. This tutorial will walk you through the steps to customize the single Staff Member template files using your own custom plugin.Continue reading “How To Override Simple Staff List Template Files With A Plugin”
Now that Simple Staff List has support for single Staff Member pages – you’ll need to make them fit in with your theme. This is really much easier than it sounds – I’ll walk you through it.
Now, as I said in my introductory post about single Staff Member pages, you don’t need to do anything for the default WordPress themes (Twenty Seventeen, Twenty Sixteen, etc.). But that doesn’t help if you’re not using one of those themes does it? Here’s how to add support for whichever theme your website is using.Continue reading “How To Make Simple Staff List Single Staff Member Templates Work With Your Theme”
So this has probably been the most requested feature since I released Simple Staff List several years ago – single Staff Member templates. With Simple Staff List 2.1.0 you’ll be able to customize what’s shown on a single Staff Member page.
All of the default template files are located in
simple-staff-list/public/templates. To override a file, copy the template file you want to change into a directory within your theme or child theme named
sslp-templates keeping the same file structure.
If this style of templating sounds familiar to you, it should. I’ve taken the same approach that WooCommerce does to templating.
For example: If you want to override the staff bio section, copy
wp-content/themes/yourtheme/sslp-templates/single-staff-member/staff-bio.php. The file in your theme will now override the default Simple Staff List file.
There’s also built-in support for the TwentySeventeen and TwentySixteen default WordPress themes. So if you’re using one of those themes, you’ll only have to override the templates if you want to change the layout.
I hope this gives you a quick overview of the new templating features in the latest version of Simple Staff List. Please don’t hesitate to open a support ticket if you have questions or run into any issues. For a more in-depth look at how this feature works, keep reading below.Continue reading “Getting Started with Simple Staff List Single Staff Member Templates”
Time of death – 8:43pm Friday, March 10th. Well, it was at least a decent attempt at another round of Whole30. But Friday night, hunger, sleep deprivation (due to a 7 month old) got the better of us and we fell off the wagon. I won’t go into all the delicious details for those of you that might still be attempting a Whole30, but let’s just say it involved taco shells made of Doritos.
Oof. Ok, so last week was kind of a mess with the meal planning. I ended up giving myself way too much to do – trying to cook at least one (and sometimes two) new recipes in one evening after 7pm. Tried something different this week and kept everything really loose.
Alright, so cooking all of the things, taking care of a 7 month old during the evenings, working, and writing a daily blog surprisingly didn’t pan out all that well. Let’s just do weekly recaps, shall we? (you can catch up on my day 1 and day 2 in my previous posts)
Day 1 was a success – I didn’t eat any peanut butter. Today was also a win.
Had the same breakfast as yesterday – Brussels Sprouts Sweet Potato Sausage Hash. Still pretty tasty. This recipe will definitely stay in the rotation for the month, but we’ll be switching it up tomorrow.
My wife and I started our 2nd (not consecutive) round of Whole30 today, and I’m hungry. She’s hungry. I spent the weekend meal planning, shopping, and cooking our first few meals for the week, but I had forgotten how much food you need to eat on this diet (lifestyle change?) to stay full. Continue reading “(Another) Day 1 of Whole30”
So I’ve got another plugin in the WordPress plugin repository called “Admin Bar Edit Content Links.” Yeah, I know it’s a really long name.It adds a menu to the admin bar with links to edit pages, posts, or any other custom post type used on your site. There’s an options page so you can choose which post types you want in and which ones you want out. All personal bias aside, this is one of my absolute favorite time-saving WordPress plugins. I install it on every website I touch and once my clients use it, they can’t get by without it. Continue reading “Admin Bar Edit Content Links WordPress Plugin”
