I have a handful of Chrome extensions that I always keep handy for myself and people who ask for computer help (as people often do). The Better Popup Blocker extension adds on top of Chrome’s built-in popup blocking functionality. Better Popup Blocker seems to block popups more aggressively than Chrome does by default.
Whilst trying to install this extension on a computer recently, I found that it had been removed from the Chrome Webstore. I went ahead and checked out the code from the extension’s Google Code repo and packaged it up into a CRX so I could install it in the future. How-to Geek has a good article on installing Chrome extensions manually, so once you’ve downloaded the CRX from this post, follow the instructions there to install it.

Today I was muddling around with gallery images’ captions/alt text/descriptions. I came to realize that I had no clue in what order WordPress retrieved the alt text for attachments; I knew from experience that it checked several places. The order is:
- Use Alt field first
- If not, Use the Caption
- Finally, use the title
This comes straight from the comments of `wp_get_attachment_image` as of WP 3.7 RC2.
I make websites for a living. I do this usually for mom and pop shops or as a subcontractor, with the occasional large corp site thrown into the mix.
One standard I hold very highly in my job is taking full advantage of the power a content management system like WordPress provides for a business. A website with WordPress as its backbone gives a business the ability to manage what they know best – their message.
I feel that it is part of my job to empower a business with the ability to edit all parts of their site, especially the little details like phone numbers and social media links. To that end, I use a killer combination of plugins that makes a site stand on its own: Custom Field Suite (plugin page & author page) for post meta and OptionTree (plugin page & github page) for site options.
