It’s time to talk a bit about accessibility on the web. It’s been on my radar for a long time but it’s finally time to start understanding web accessibility and making it a part of our design and development workflow. I’ll write more about it in the coming months – what it is, why we need it. Why we haven’t paid enough attention to it yet and why we will be paying attention moving forward…

Spigot has been designing websites in Park City since 2007, and for most of that time we’d come up first or towards the very top when searching for ‘Park City Web Design‘. Well, we’re no longer at/near the top: After a couple of ads, we’re showing up in 7th position on Duck Duck Go. Second on Google isn’t too bad but I search on DDG pretty much exclusively. No offense to any of the sites above us...

Whether you run a small business, non-profit organization or e-commerce business, website content management can take up a lot of your time and effort – which is why most successful businesses leave it to the pros. Businesses are organic, living things that require mindful management to flourish and grow – and so do their websites. Outdated or incorrect information, long-past events...

No matter if you’re building your own website or you’ve hired a website design and development company to do the work for you, creating and sourcing content is an inescapable part of the process. Unfortunately, people tend to underestimate the importance of great website content and don’t recognize how difficult it can be to write website copy until their project comes to an absolute standstill.

Maintaining spigotdesign.com is a passion of mine. It’s my site after all. So when I realized that the database was massive, even after deleting all those sweet tweets, it was time to go extreme. I wrote about the tasks in detail over at our Cinch blog, but you can stay here and be amazed that fact that the database was reduced from nearly 3GB to just under 60MB. That’s a many thousands of...

I haven’t spent a ton of time thinking about dark mode updates to websites. I haven’t used it much on any of my devices, until recently. And now that I am starting to use it – I’ve chosen to let the OS automatically switch – I’m also thinking a little on how to implement it on a website. I’m sure there are more comprehensive tutorials out there, but here’s a simple quick way that uses Sass and...

I’ve been using Twitter since 2008, and for reasons I’ll explain, I’ve been pulling each and every one of those tweets into this site as an individual post (as a Custom Post Type of course). Over the years, I’ve tweeted less and less, and find the value of keeping all the tweets less important than the effort to maintain them. Nearly 6000 tweets clogging up the WordPress database. A few times a...

I recently published an article on our dev process, which relies heavily on standard WordPress templates, a bit on Beaver Builder, and a smattering of Gutenberg. Then of course the very next week WordPress announces that Gutenberg full-site editing will be coming later this year in WordPress 5.6. I don’t know how robust it will be, but it’s slated to include editing ability for headers and footers.

Having built WordPress powered websites for as long as I have, there’s one thing that I can bet on: WordPress will change. Most of the changes over the years have been incremental and additive. Adopting these changes has generally been smooth, seamless, and not disrupted our development workflow in a drastic way. And as a general rule, the WordPress Community as a whole has embraced most of the...
