What I learned about updating my own Genesis theme to use AMP. Using the AMP plugin for WordPress, tackling issues on my mobile menu and adapting for Gravity Forms.
Now if you are interested in creating an icon system to use SVG not only in your menu but throughout your theme for design elements, within content areas, and inline them programmatically — a custom solution is in order.
This is a very easy solution for a client to implement. All you need to do is create a menu, add your social media links with the menu text and voila – it magically displays the corresponding SVG icons instead.
When we design for the desktop and then try to make it work on mobile – we’re only getting half the project done right. Mobile devices and tablets have unique user experiences, that are different from the desktop.
I’m always looking for ways to improve my efficiency. It’s better for me and the clients I serve.
This week I launched my podcast series, Rethink.fm. I love asking questions and spend a lot of my time with fellow designers and developers discussing what the future holds for WordPress and how we use it.
