Dave Rupert’s WP Dribbble Plugin

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

Trent Walton seeded the idea and asked me to make a Dribbble plugin, so I created a plugin that by default mimic’d the wonderful UI created by Dan Cederholm and Rich Thornett. After a couple emails with those gentlemen for their permission to use some assets and a day of coding, we got something we were proud of.

I can’t wait to try that out!

From PSD to WP series – Part II

Monday, October 19th, 2009

It’s finally published.

From Photoshop to WordPress – Part II – Coding

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… lesson learned. I never thought it would have taken me so long to write it but life comes at you with unexpected road bumps and you just have to deal with it. From now on tho, if I ever do another series, I’ll make sure all the parts are written before publishing the first one.

I’m just so happy that it’s out there and I hope it will help some of you learn how to slice a Photoshop mockup.

Like anything else in Web Design, understand that this is merely one way of doing it. It’s how I’ve done it for the past 10 years and it’s worked great for me.

As for Part III, I’m starting it this week and I hope to publish it in the coming weeks.

Thank you for you patience!

From PSD to WordPress – A tutorial series

Monday, December 8th, 2008

Last Friday, we finally got Part I of our “From PSD to WordPress” series out. From Photoshop to WordPress – Part I – Design took quite a long time in coming and I was very happy to see it finally go live. I actually started writing this Part I back in August!

So what took me so long? I would reply the usual “lack of time” but a lot of it was mostly “lack of interest”. Just a few weeks after I started writing this tutorial, there came an influx of similar articles and tutorials so it really bummed me out (for a lack of a better word). I was wondering if I was doing the right thing. Then, I came to the realization that we needed this article on The Web Squeeze. We didn’t have one and that meant our public had to go elsewhere for the help.

We have quite a few knowledgeable members in the TWS forum for WP help so this article could hopefully bring a few of the WP beginners to the forum. WordPress is by far the most popular blogging CMS. There is so many things/plugins/etc… that you can do/add that these types of tutorials, no matter how many there are, are all helpful in my opinion.

Even tho they all have a common goal, these tutorials are all done by different writers, therefore are all different. Techniques used, designs, ways to achieve the same results. The more techniques you know, the better you can create something more useful for your client.

So stay tuned for Part II – HTML/CSS coding to come sometime in the next month.
