• Horizontally scrolling tables on narrow devices

    I’ve been looking at how to enable horizontal scrolling on tables created by the [bw_table] shortcode, when the device width is narrow. I want to be able to do it using CSS, without JavaScript. I also want to be able to style the table in the native Gutenberg blocks.

    Having looked at a couple of solutions, I believe I’ll be able to achieve it having the table nested in a Group block, and providing the CSS styling using my CSS block.

  • oik-clone v2.0.0-beta-20200616 – cloning new content made easier

    Today, after many months of procrastination, I’ve implemented a small change to my oik-clone plugin that should significantly improve my publishing process. oik-clone now has the ability to automatically re-clone content with newly added (uncloned) featured images.

    The primary purpose is to ensure that the target system has the correct ID for the featured image.

    Original processNew process
    Create the content.Same
    Upload and attach the featured image.Same
    View the content.Same
    In the output of the [clone] shortcode select the post and the child attachment to clone. Click on cloneSame.
    Edit the content – check the SEO meta description, correct a typo or something, update the taxonomies then update.No need to edit. You’re done.
    View the content again.
    Clone the content again.
    Original process vs New process for cloning new content

    See bobbingwide/oik-clone#50.

    Post without a featured image. Note: post ID 50 was extracted from the github shortcode. It’s a red herring I’ve learnt to live with.

  • Testing shortcode expansion in embedded excerpts

    Tools like Slack, Facebook, Twitter and WordPress itself are capable of embedding content from another site just by being given a link. I’ve just updated oik so that it will expand shortcodes during ‘the_excerpt_embed’ filtering. Which means you shoudn’t see a load of strange

    tags.

  • H2GD Part 41: How to create a simple contact form

    With the right plugin, creating a simple contact form should be almost as easy as typing

    display contact form here
    . Over on bobbingwidewebdesign.com I reviewed 6 Contact Form plugins. Today, since my Gravity Forms Licence had expired again, I tried Ninja Forms as well. It took me a while to get a working version. I eventually succeeded when I lowered my sights. In the end the results weren’t much better than the simple contact form that comes as standard with my oik plugin.

    How to create a simple contact form using oik

    1. Install and activate the oik base plugin
    2. Visit oik options > options and set a value for your email address: Email /..
    3. Create some content e.g. a new post or a page
    4. Somewhere within the content type
      [bw_contact_form]
    5. Save
There, that wasn’t hard now was it?

Example

Features

  • Enough fields to gather information from your site visitor.
  • Name and Email are required fields.
  • HTML5 validation.
  • Spam checking using Akismet.
  • Email sent to the content author.
  • It’s also copied to the email given on the contact form.
  • The email indicates the URL on which the form was completed.
  • Default text for Submit button is “Contact me” if the Contact mick field is not completed.
