How many of you are sad about the demise of Google Reader, and how many even more afraid of losing something that is more important to your daily feeds, your subscribers. Even before the close of Reader, we’ve heard that Google is also dropping Feedburner, like the rest of the services that they acquired, poor Sparrow. Alternative way is to revert back to your WordPress default feed which somehow losing the ability to track stats. Today I’d like to talk a bit about a new feed service URI.LV, which may be considered as an alternative to Feedburner.
The best thing of the week is that I received my second Mac, the Macbook Air 13 (2012) after using a Macbook Pro 13 since around three and a half years ago. While the bad thing, which is really bad, is the Google is shutting down Google Reader, the best service that Google has ever created, at least to me. This is really bad. It basically kills my daily reading in a single strike, leaving me to search for an alternative which literally doesn’t exist.
The latest update of Reverie brings several new features and hope you like it. So far in previous versions of Reverie, I basically ignored child theme support since I personally prefer doing all the work by editing the original files. So in this post, I will go through some necessary steps to enable the child theme support for Reverie.
Foundation 4 goes mobile first, which means we need to reverse the way and process we construct a design, by starting from a small screen and then adding parts for the large screen. Work for two days and now I would like to announce the release of the new version of Reverie Framework, which also has the same version number 4. Before jump right to the download section or the Github page, you will, or most likely, are required take a look at the below changes otherwise you may end up a terrible weekend. So, let do it now, backup your theme.
Not a big fan of Box.com and you might read my complaint for not having a sync tool on Mac. While indeed there is one that is made for enterprise users but Box.com kindly made it available to individual users for free a white ago. If you haven’t got it, you can download it on the official website. The tool works well and sitting on your Mac’s Preference Panel. However, one thing left to complaint is the menu bar icon being a bit not well designed. The color icon looks like a resize of the big icon while the black one not being polished.
The blog was lack of update and I was busy messing things up on other projects. I am back now and hope to keep up the schedule of at least one or two posts every week. Reverie Framework was created over a year and during the period, Foundation has reached the 3.2 milestone. Meanwhile there are also other WordPress frameworks featuring ZURB’s Foundation and one of them is required+.
ZURB’s Foundation provides us an elegant and simple way to display image gallery and content as slides and we call it Orbit. Like the rest of Foundation, it’s a responsive one and you only need to create your orbit and the rest is well taken care of. If you are using Reverie Framework 3.0, all you need to do is to follow the steps offered by the official documentation of Foundation. However, there are some problems preventing users from creating an Orbit properly. Thus we will start from sketch.
The third version of Foundation was released last Friday, and I have already fell in love with this latest release. According to ZURB, this is a brand new version which the code was written from ground up. After taking a look inside what the new version offers, guess it’s time for me to bring up an update on Reverie Framework too.
Nowadays every website whether big or small has a newsletter tailored to fulfill its goal or either converting subscribers to customers or kindly reminds fans of what’s going on across their beloved sites. We have seen tons of newsletters flood into our mailbox but yet few of them really attract our attentions. Either because they are awful looking or they are simply spamming. In order to build a great template for your great content, you need to spend a lot of time digging around here and there.
Have some spare time so just made a simple revamp of the blog but you might notice that the new design is not that simple though. The new theme you are looking at is one of the themes that I designed for another blog I run. With a little tweaks here and there, a new theme for ThemeFortress was made.
