I had wanted to do the Subliminal Projects website ever since I started working here. It was using a custom built backend and front end that was really hard to work with. And after everyone’s experience here with WordPress they had asked that it be built on WordPress. I wanted to make it easy and expand on itself. I had always want to do a gallery website since there is so many possibilities to do with it. As you will see in my explanation of how it is built, how it is run, and etc.
Its no secret that Matt Mullenweg wants to do. Well it sort of is, if you have never watched him explain WordPress or how he became who he is today. As he describes in many interviews his goal growing up was to be the top result for “Matt” in google. He accomplished this and held the high ranks for a couple of years, he doesn’t hold the high rank anymore. But he did it.
Why does Movable Type, Drupal, any blogging software out there need to be running scared? Well he is trying to do this with WordPress. WordPress is obviously rising in the ranks, but there are two versions of WordPress out there. WordPress.com and WordPress.org, so when they rank the blogging software out there, it just shows up as WordPress.
He simply wants the majority of websites to run open source software (WordPress).
As he describes in the video below:
All videos with matt are good listens, he is a good talker and I don’t know why he hasn’t been scouped up by some other company to do there bidding.
I recently got the pleasure of working on the Subliminal Projects website. I was able to finish my tri-fecta of websites under the “Studio Number One” umbrella (Studio Number One, OBEY GIANT, Subliminal Projects). I had wanted to work on the gallery page since I started working on the OBEY GIANT website. There is so much data and possibilities and it excited me.
My first public plugin for wordpress that shows your websites google pagerank in the dashboard. Can be disabled in the screen options menu and moved around at will.
Works 2.7+, I don’t know if it works on anything below that.
Just really an example of how to put something into the dashboard.
