I was working on a project of mine, a WordPress theme. I was working with a loop to display most viewed post of the site. Well, the loop was working. Thumbnail, not so much. It kept repeating the thumbnail from the first post of the loop, through all the post. It’s not only frustrating, annoying too. I spend about 2 days fixing it, nothing. All WP functions related to thumbnail , tried and failed. So when I was about to give up and put a plugin to solve this shit, I suddenly realise, the thumbnail has no reason to work. I have to call the post before I can fetch its thumbnail. I was so busy fetching everything else, I forgot about the_post(); function. Shame on me!

A different approach to Bootstrap Alert

A Different approach to Bootstrap Notificaion

I was working on a project, where I had to design a login panel. It had two columns, one for Login and one for registration. Now the problem was, when I made the initial commit to git, I forgot to insert an alert notification. I have to show some error when someone use wrong username password or missed a field in the registration form, or the username he is trying to get is already registered. That sort of stuff.

Now as I was using bootstrap, I can simply use the bootstrap alert. All I needed to do is insert the HTML code. But that I thought, why not a different approach? Especially I loved the alert UI of WordPress admin panel. So I figured, let’s shake some code ( not booty ).

I was about to write the whole thing here, but a friend suggested that I should circulate it to a broad network. And my first choice was Bootsnip. Probably the largest collection of bootstrap snippets. Helping me in my work for more than a year. So i put it there.
