New challenges ahead!

Angry Creative

I’ve been working for almost six years at Knowit, it’s been a great time with many challenging projects and we’ve managed to build a successful WordPress delivery team. I’ve also been doing almost one of the years at Knowit as a consultant for Lantbrukarnas Riksförbund and their IT Department with focus on their newspaper section, LRF Media.

From now on I’ll be in charge of the WordPress maintenance at Angry Creative, one of Swedens largest and most knowledgable WordPress agencies. I’m looking forward to it and hope to be a part in creating the best WordPress agency in Sweden, we’ve already come a long way and we’ll step this up even more from now on.

With these words I’d like to thank my colleagues at Knowit for what’s been and also say hi to all the new people at Angry Creative. I think it’s going to be a great year coming up.

WordPress Continuous Maintenance

Today I’ve been presenting on Knowit Developer Summit, an internal conference, brought by developers to developers at Knowit. The talk gives you some tips on how to bring your WordPress development up a few steps when it comes to things like deployment, rollbacks, server parity etc. It also covers how we use Trellis and Bedrock at our Jönköping office to perform the tasks mentioned above.

If you’d like to know more, download the presentation or visit one of the links presented below.

WordPress admin menu problem

WordPress

Have you also experienced problems with the admin menu in WordPress 4.3? It’s a bug in chrome that you can fix by entering the following in your address field:

chrome://flags/#disable-slimming-paint

Also make sure that ”enable-slimming-paint” is not activated, as it will override the above setting.

More information about this bug can be found on WordPress trac ticket 33199. It seems the bug is also affecting older versions of WordPress, so it can be worth a try if you’re running on 4.2 for example.
