My name is Kenneth John Odle. I make things on the web. On this website, I show you how to do what I do.
I work primarily with WordPress, which is not just a great blogging platform but also a fantastic content management system. I have created both plugins and themes for WordPress. A lot of what you’ll find here is about WordPress. If you are new to WordPress, the following posts are good places to start:
- “WordPress—Taking Your First Steps“
- “Criteria for Choosing WordPress Plugins“
- “WordPress Child Themes: The Whys and Hows“
- “Troubleshoot your WordPress Blog“
Here are my ten latest articles about WordPress:
- Make WordPress Post Formats All They Can Be
- WordPress Settings API Cheat Sheet
- DreamObjects Backups
- Useful WordPress Plugins
- Subversion on Windows: A TortoiseSVN Workflow
- “Message Blocks” WordPress Plugin
- New WordPress Plugin in the Works!
- How Many WordPress Plugin Combinations are Possible?
- Create WordPress Shortcodes
- Add Post Navigation Links in the Graphene Theme for WordPress
I also use GetSimple as a content management system. Although it is not as powerful as WordPress, it’s much simpler to set up and use. I am a GetSimple theme author.
I also enjoy using Moodle (a learning management system), MediaWiki, and DocuWiki. At some point, you’ll find something about all of those systems here.
Sometimes I use plain old HTML and CSS to create a website, along with a healthy dose of PHP, and I write about that here, as well.
If there are other tutorials you would like to see, just let me know using my contact form.
