Today I needed to loop through the output of a command on the WP CLI. The most simple way I could think to do that was to save the output of the command into an array and loop through it. What I did was use wp site list to get the subsites on a WordPress […]
I had a great time with my wife and my team (Tatooine) in Hawaii. We were there 12 days total. The only thing I would change is the location in Hawaii. Honolulu is very crowded. It’s a big city that felt like Los Angeles, only the driving was 100 times worse. It was hot and […]
My team is having a MeetUp in Hawaii and it should be a lot of fun. I am looking forward to spending some time with my team, Tatooine in WooCommerce, as well as a team from .com that is having their MeetUp in the same location. We have some cross team stuff planned that should […]
Today is the day! I am so excited about the release of WordPress 5.0 and Blocks (Gutenberg). We will see a lot of new things over the next few weeks in my department, challenges and fun things to troubleshoot and fix. I am not being sarcastic at all either, I love it.
This week during the Grand Meetup I was in a class called “Contributing to Core”. It was such a great class in that I got an inside view to all things WordPress Core. By the end of class I had my very first commit to WordPress Core. The commit was a fix for #45028 that my co-worker filed during the class.
Tonight we took over Universal Studios and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Just us! The entire park to ourselves. No lines for rides, unlimited food and drinks, including my favorite beer and Butter Beer! I had 4 cups of the frozen Butter Beer! I can’t even begin to describe how amazing the experience was. My team, my co-workers, we are like a huge family and we got have a blast hanging out in Diagon Alley
During the GM I’ll being taking a class on Contributing to WordPress Core. I am really excited about it! This is something I do indirectly with docs and forums but I am hoping to either file a bug and patch it or find an existing bug and create a patch. I’ll post when I have […]

Every day that I get a CrossFit workout in, I like to record that on my site, Level Up CrossFit. But that is a time consuming task that I have less and less time for. I don’t want to stop doing that, so I decided to add some custom fields so that entry is easier […]
In WooCommerce you can use WooCommerce Services to make tax calculations easier. This uses the TaxJar API to do that for you. Sometimes though, you will have everything configured correctly, but taxes still show as $0 or not at all on the front end of your site. This is often because there is no Nexus […]

WooCommerce 3.3 Image Size Changes WooCommerce 3.3 got some Image Size Improvements. You can read all about that here.

Day 5 was all work no play … well until the end. 🙂 We attended Celtic Nights Traditional Irish Dance Show and it was a lot of fun.
Day 4 was mostly spent seeing Ireland! We all piled into a tour bus and traveled all over. We saw two different counties and even passed through the town where “P.S. I love You” was filmed, which is our favorite movie! We went to Kilkenny and Glendalough. Glendalough Monastic City was pretty amazing and we hiked a […]
Day 3 started at 4:00 AM. I know, right? I could not sleep much at all. Being 8 hours ahead is just not fun. Knowing I had to be up at 5:00 and navigate my way to CrossFit Navitas by 5:30 made me a little anxious, but it was easy. Sunrise is 6:53 AM, and so […]
If I remove a product or a product variation from my store, will that effect past Subscriptions based on the product I removed? I get this question a lot, and it makes sense. If you run out of stock, you don’t want to sell it anymore. Or what if you just want to discontinue a […]
