So I was given the brief “design and build a really cool website with the wow factor”. This was a tough brief, not only because I knew expectation was high, but because the client was a family friend and I was doing the site as a favour. Find out about the new WordPress website I built them.
Ste Wright the Web Developer
I’ve been running LAMP setups on Raspberry Pi’s for years, so am excited to use the little pocket-sized powerhouse that is the Raspberry Pi 2 as a web server. This is the first in a series that will see a quad core Raspberry Pi 2 run this WordPress site.
Hi all! It’s been a while, way over a year since my last post. I’ve certainly been busy, but new plugins are on the horizon. I’m moving the site to a new Raspberry Pi 2, and will be writing new LAMP tutorials as part of this. Sorry it’s been so long!
I run another site with a good friend, Sam Evans (hook up with him on Twitter) called LiveReview. I’m looking into the feasibility of moving Raspbian into the tech section of our rebuilt site that’s coming soon. This part of the site will be of course, hosted from a Raspberry Pi. It will be the ultimate test for the trusty Raspberry Pi because the traffic will be huge!
More to come soon!
I’ve been playing with OSX El Capitan Developer Preview for the past few days, and aside from a few little problems, it’s been great so far. The sticking point was homebrew and installing new packages.
The only issue I find is that Yoast SEO doesn’t take content in ACF fields into account when it comes to checking a post for its SEO quality. It’s very easy to get Yoast SEO to check ACF fields though.
Not too long ago, I decided to change the name of the site as the name ‘Dingleberry Pi’ was a little tongue in cheek, and I never anticipated the growth of users following my tutorial. I asked you, the community to come up with some names, and I’ve been really pleased and extremely grateful for the response.
If like me, you are a web developer who relies on a stable internet connection for working from home or for your own Raspberry Pi project, I strongly urge you not to choose Plus.net as your ISP. This the story of my experience, and why I will never spend a penny with Plus.net again.
