When used properly, sliders can be helpful. I’m hard pressed to find a site these days that doesn’t have one. But coding up a slider module can be very difficult. And now that responsive design is all but mandatory, it’s even more so. That’s why Thomas Griffin built Soliloquy. Responsive and Easy What really jump out for me are the layers the plugin is built on. On the surface, it’s really easy to get started with your first slider. Thomas even brags that it can be done in 60 seconds. (In my experience, it’s more like a minute and a half…) […]
By trade, training, and education, I am a learning and development professional, which most people have no idea what that means, so instead I say this: I am a WordPress enthusiast. That is truly how I see myself. I’m super familiar with what not to do with WordPress, and feel lucky that I’ve converted a hobby into a full time venture! Meet Travis Smith, a WordPress developer who made his way over to WordPress from Blogger long, long ago. Doesn’t it seem like there are so many people who started out on other CMSs, had talent, and once they discovered […]
It’s a big week for Soliloquy as they have launched a brand new version of their plugin, 1.5.0. It’s chalk full of new updates and improved UI, and as an added bonus, Thomas the creator of Soliloquy, has decided to have a 20% off sale that ends today! Don’t miss out on the savings if you’ve been thinking about giving Soliloquy a shot.
Crazy week, right? It’s been one for the record books for me personally as I’ve been attempting to finalize a Kickstarter campaign and project that has pretty much hijacked my entire life. At some point I’ll have a massive retrospective, but I’m exhausted with only a day or so to go. But naturally there’s been more news than just Kickstarter project – here are some of the things that happened this previous week that you may not have gotten to see. Oh, and by the way, make sure you’re aware of the big super bot that’s attempting to access your […]
It’s been an insane week – and it’s been nothing short of a miracle. Finishing our Epic Gaming Mural, Holding our Jelly Event, organizing and finishing out WordCamp Atlanta (and the VIP after party), launching a Kickstarter Campaign, and managing all the other “normal” things in life – yikes, it’s just been insanity! We’ve been getting a few hours of sleep each night, if we’re lucky. As you can see, Chris is trying to recover… at 8:00am in the morning. But without further ado, here you go:
Thomas Griffin is all over the place. And I mean that in the best way possible. He’s an expert WordPress developer of both themes and plugins. He’s a talented golfer. He’s a WordCamp speaker. Oh yeah, did we mention he’s the guy behind Soliloquy? Check out the interview below to catch a glimpse into his skill and personality as today’s WPOI (Word Person of Interest):
Sliders, whether you love them or hate them are a part of our web economy and the way we deliver valuable information to readers. Personally I’m not sure they are done incredibly well but they do serve a purpose and there are enough positive examples to at least not abandon them wholesale. But one of the neat things that Soliloquy brings to the table is a responsive slider system that actually works very well – and it keeps getting better. Take for instance the recent update where Thomas Griffin, the founder and creator of Soliloquy, added a neat crop feature for the […]
