Before launch, a site needs to be approved by the client. This snippet is an convenient improvement on my previous method of whitelisting IP client addresses to permit them to bypass my maintenance page.
These are slides I prepared for a spontaneous WordCamp Melbourne 2013 lightning talk.
The gists are available here:
Here are slides from my demo of using SourceTree at last night’s WordPress Meetup at Inspire9. I think it went over the heads of quite a few, and was old hat to a few more, but I hope it was useful to some of the other devs in the room!

Pingdom just published findings that WordPress is in use by 48% of the worlds top blogs in 2012.
I’m pretty happy with that finding, because I only do WordPress – it’s really not sustainable for a freelancer like myself to maintain skills in multiple platforms. I’m not often comfortable with the notion of putting all my eggs in one basket, but in this case it’s satisfying to feel that I made a good choice back when I started investing my time in WordPress!

It came to light recently that a vulnerability exists in a script used widely by WordPress Theme authors, including those by Elegant Themes, which I highly recommend.
This is an easy bug to fix, but that requires users to update their WordPress themes (not just the core installation), and we know that site maintenance is an easy thing to postpone in a busy world.
In a previous tip I mentioned using the Finder Sidebar for speeding up your workflow, but since the 10.6.7 update, the behaviour of the Finder Sidebar has changed.
Where we used to be able to simply drag an item out, in 10.6.7 the item simply snaps back to the sidebar (or ‘shelf’, as some call it).
- Hold Command whilst dragging items out of the Finder Sidebar
- Right Click the item you want to remove, and select ‘Remove from Sidebar’
Unfortunately, there’s no mention of this in the OSX 10.6.7 changelog.
Bonus tip: You might like to seperate items in the list – there’s a handy method documented at Finder Sidebar Separators.
