This week, Ray broadcasts from the SIGCSE conference and the team is joined by Scott Simpson…one of the producers at lynda.com as well as an author. We talk about some of the awesome research going on at this conference and break into a discussion about the right way to learn about the web.
In today’s episode, Ray talks about his favorite video capture tool and lo and behold James is thinking about Minecraft. Meanwhile special Guest Rob Garrot shows us some great video tools and his tips for getting the most out of a low budget situation. And Morten, our resident Nordish Canadian gives his 2 cents about the big game with the pigskin ball.
The gang decides to reduce the size of the show to 30 minutes with some mixed results. James Williamson talks about CSS regions and Ray does a demo showing Angular.js’ features. Meanwhile, special guest James Fritz designs an awesome logo with an online generator…and we hear a rant about Net Neutrality from Morten.
And we’re back on this, our first episode of the year. In this special WordPress episode, Morten and Ray talk about the new website, which was haphazardly put together by the least experienced WordPress user… Ray, so we talk about Plug-ins, content types, SEO, badly mangled CSS and the best way to do things.
Tools for changing permalink structures in existing WordPress sites:
- Advanced Permalinks plugin (preserves old permalink structures after update)
- Preserve old permalink structures through .htaccess (tool by Yoast)
- Permalinks Finder plugin (catches incorrect link requests and directs them to the most likely post/page)
- Quick Page/Post Redirects plugin (allows you to point any page or post to any URL temporarily or permanently)
- Google Analyticator plugin
- All In One SEO Pack plugin
- WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin
- Morten’s lynda.com course on WordPress SEO plugins
It’s the end of the year and we’ve got a special treat. Traversing thousands of miles, both Ray and Morten get to do an episode side by side and pulling all the stops, we invited two special guests: Justin Seeley and Aaron Quigley. Secretly shooting this at one our LIVE lynda.com studios, you’re in for a treat. We dedicate this show to Education, flipping the classroom and more.
