Now

Available for Hire

I am looking for a position as a WordPress front-end or back-end developer role, part-time and remote. I am open to new projects and collaborations. I’d love to hear from you! Thank you.

This is a now page, inspired by Rich Tabor – a nearly-always updated page of what I’m up to these days.

What I’m doing right now

Right now I am working on two projects. Auto Load Next Post is the first, a WordPress plugin developed to increase your pageviews by engaging the site viewers to keep reading your content rather than increasing your bounce rate.

Currently, a free version is available which I am improving regularly. I’m close to finishing the Pro version which will provide more features and improved Javascript to support themes much better and the additional features.

Support is currently being added to the core of Auto Load Next Post for integrations and extensions. A new modern site design is also in the works. New and improved documentation is nearly complete.

The second project is CoCart, a REST API designed for WooCommerce. Accessing the cart via the REST API was highly requested by mobile and app developers and was missing from the core of WooCommerce. So I built it and so far has been well received. A Pro version is also in the works

What I plan on doing next

I plan to develop extensions for Auto Load Next Post as it progresses and get them released asap. I want to also produce videos relatively soon to help users on how to use and customize Auto Load Next Post. Finish the core of Auto Load Next Post Pro and release it.

I am hoping to build more Gutenberg blocks aswell. Currently writing down block ideas which you can view on my ideas board. You can submit a new block if not already listed.

Recent contributions

I wrote a simple plugin to show the locations of action hooks placed within the CoBlocks theme – called it CoBlocks Show Me.

I also wrote my first Gutenberg block. It took two weeks to develop. The first week was understanding the Gutenberg components, controls and learn the basics of the JavaScript language React. The second week was the development of the block.

It’s called Double Image – which allows you to add two images side by side with optional overlay text. Change the text overlay position, the text colour, the background opacity and colour, set the background image fixed for a paralex effect. You can also set the alignment to Wide Width, Full width or Center.

What I currently use

I currently use Visual Studio Code by Microsoft for my coding needs. Before that I used Atom but recently I found it to be heavy after long use so I haven’t used anything else since.
