I’m glad to announce that since most of the bugs in BakersCalc have been addressed I’m finally working on adding some useful features. Today’s update brings drag n drop sorting for all devices, in hindsight this should have been implemented from the beginning. There will be a small design update to make it obvious, but to sort you simply click/touch on the item’s weight and drag it to it’s new position.

I recently came across this neat way to present footers while browsing around and decided to try and replicate it. It works by setting position: fixed; and z-index: -1; on our <footer> tag, and on our last article we add a large margin-bottom to reveal the content beneath. It’s very easy to implement if your footer has a static height, and of course works for multiple breakpoints via @media queries.

After a few days of coding and editing I’m proud to announce an updated version of the BHM theme. This time around I’ve focused on creating a theme that is very flexible and familiar, since this is supposed to be a blog after all. There are new navigation and sidebar regions defined which enable users (aka me) to take advantage of WordPress’ editing capabilities. Most of the JS/CSS files have been dusted off as well, and the code calling them has been revised so that the entire site should operate quicker.[continue reading]
