This post is one of a few to come: My thoughts on this year’s GeeUp conference.
ExpressionEngine’s Simple vs. Complex Conditionals is mostly all about a) the variables the conditional is evaluating, and b) the complexity of the conditional statement. But there’s more to it than that - syntax matters.
Once again I’m shaking my fists at the impossible hoop-jumping gauntlet that is the ExpressionEngine Parse Order. This time I want to pass the result of an Advanced Conditional as a value to a module tag parameter. It’s been long said it can’t be done. It’s time to change that.
Thanks to the devot:ee Store, it has never been easier to turn a little pet add-on into a commercial profit-maker. And no doubt the prospect of earning dosh for brilliance has attracted strong talent to the EE community. But amidst this fevered gold rush, are we customers getting our money’s worth?
Known simply as ‘Flickr’, this modest yet powerful EE2 add-on fully integrates Flickr into your website. And it’s awesome.
Flickr is now Matrix2 compatible, and even more awesomeness is on the way - like integration with Wygwam.
More often than not, EE add-ons assume that you are only interested in the current site being loaded. But, well, you know what they say about ass-u-mptions. Read on to learn how you can switch MSM sites while mid-rendering of a template.
ExpressionEngine’s hard-coded, 1 hour time limit for CP sessions has always been a real nuisance - frustrated clients have asked repeatedly for it to be extended. I’m cautiously releasing an add-on that finally grants control of this limit, but I’d appreciate some help to determine its usefulness & effectiveness.
Template “partials” functionality for ExpressionEngine: Embrace the DRY principle, reduce embed parsing and simplify your template ecosystem with this roll-your-own plugin.
Minimee, the ExpressionEngine 2.x plugin that minifies and combines your CSS and JS files, just got better. cURL support, PHP5 cleverness and other goodies await you.
No Hacking Required ™: The ExpressionEngine community proudly touts this as one of EE’s great strengths over competing CMS platforms. But if you miss hacking, if you’d like to capture the satisfaction and thrill of raw, unadulterated PHP code, you should build yourself a plugin.
