Preferably pop art subjects like old school video game characters These are my creations so far. Maximum effect for minimal work! You can usually find lots of […]

Removing Parentheses from Subtitles

I often watch English movies and TV series, but not being a native English speaker I like to also have English subtitles. Usually, the downloadable English subtitles for English content is made for hearing impared, and it can get quite annoying watching lines like this: or: So what I do is this: Open the subtitle […]

List Event Post Type – WordPress Widget Plugin

This is a widget that lists posts in the custom post type “events” and sorts them by custom meta field “event_date”. Use your custom HTML markup to display the list.

Language specific menus in WordPress without coding

A common problem for me, and the customers I make web for, is making multilingual websites in WordPress without re-coding the theme or using paid plugins.
