Features of Our WordPress Hosting+Maintenance Service

As WordPress has become more and more popular (currently powering around 75 million websites), it has also become a high-profile target for hackers. As a WordPress-only hosting company WP Engine is very proactive and aggressive in response to new attac…

Replace WordPress default favicon – and add a full package of icons for mobile and desktop

There’s a really great favicon generator out there that will take your icon and turn it into every file size and type you need for a full range of  icons for mobile devices, desktops, and even a Windows tile. Prepare your artwork at least 260px square…

Blowing Smoke: Are HTML sites a better bet than WordPress?

It’s kind of painful to look at that title. But today, a new client of ours forwarded a comment made by his current web developer: [your site is] manually coded using HTML, CSS, Javascript, and JQuery in order to provide the greatest possible visibilit…

Flip position of site title and description in Genesis

You wouldn’t think this would be so hard to find, but it seems nobody has written how to put the site description above the site title in Genesis. Or my google-fu is exceptionally weak today. In any case, it’s actually quite easy, and this is a whole l…

Rapid WordPress site setup via Terminal

Setting up a new WP site is pretty quick, but it’s still tedious after you’ve done it dozens of times. We’ve been combing the net, looking for ways to make it happen really quickly. Here’s what we have so far:

Center menus in Genesis

It drives me nuts that there’s no obvious, easy way to center the nav bar in Genesis (or, to be fair, in most WordPress themes/frameworks). Stumbled across this the other day and found it works really well. If you are using a subnav, change #nav to #su…

Detect Mobile Browser and Serve Up Alternate Content (or nothing)

The site we just built for faithandform.com has a pretty cool slideshow feature on the home page, serving up a portion of the four most recent issues’ cover images and tables of content. But it doesn’t work well at all on small mobile devices, so Joe a…
