When posting in Status format, you may only post in the content area and leave the title blank.
In case you do not want the WordPress generated ID of the post, you may choose to have a ISO 8601 Timestamp.
Edit the slug of your post and paste the timestamp.
As an exercise on Front-End Development, The UI Team took a screenshot from instagram.com and treated it as if it were a design mockup.
We then proceed to deconstruct its Structure and Skeleton (Elements of UX) thru Information Architecture, Interaction Design, Information Design. The knowledge that arose in this deconstruction was used in building the HTML and CSS.
We, as Visual Designers, have experienced how time-consuming it was to build the Front-End of a design mockup basing only on a simple image.
The Design Handoff warrants to have more than the Brand Guidelines, Style Guide. It must also have some form of Information Architecture and Interaction Diagram that could greatly make Front-End Development faster.
HTML could accommodate Intentions Oriented Programming (IOP).
IOP is based on intentions rather than constructs.
Code could be validated but a deeper level and meaning depends on the intentions of the programmer.
After creating your first site under a Main Site, preview it and you will see icky defaults.
Here’s a list of what to setup so you would be on your way blogging:
- Week Starts On
- Permalink (Post Name)
- Appearance > Customize
- Header Image (hide)
- Posts > Categories
- Change “Uncategorized” to “Updates”
- Also update the slug
- Pages > All Pages
- Change “Sample Page” to “About”
- Also update the slug
- Posts > All Posts
- You could either change the Hello World post into your own welcome message or completely delete it.
Check your site again to see if everything’s looking good.
Bet you also hated this:
That looks redundant. No need to put up with it.
Here’s how to remove the “blog” slug from the permalink of your main site in a WordPress Multisite sub-directory installation:
First, Edit Permalink
- Go to Network Admin > Sites
- Click “Edit” on the Main Site (don’t click the actual name of the Main Site)
- On the Edit Site page, go to the Settings tab
- Look for the section of Permalink Structure
- Remove “/blog”
- Save Changes, of course
Last, Refresh Permalink
- Now go to the Dashboard of your Main Site
- Go to Settings > Permalink (this section is different from the first step)
- Choose Custom Structure and in the field, enter “/%postname%/”
- Again, Save Changes
That will refresh your permalink structure and in the last step, the permalink will probably revert back to Post Name instead of Custom Structure (although they are the same using”/%postname%/”).
Go to your site and check if the index and post pages are working properly.
