Visual Composer for WordPress provides many ways to extend its functionality. There are already many add-ons available for this dynamic page builder, but its easy to do the extending yourself,  by following the hints in the documentation ;)

In this small tutorial we are adding a „type“ field to allow a special css class to be added to each of our row containers.

New Visual Composer element properties can be easily added by using the vc_add_param function. See documentation for more information. In our case we are adding a property to the vc_row element.

IN A PERFECT WORLD

In a perfect world all current browsers would allow the usage of WebRTC natively, but that is as always not the case ;)

Git Auto Deployment with PHP

Doing Git / Bitbucket Deployment for most of my project these days. This is another compact solution, that should allow almost anyone to start using Git to distribute updates automatically.

Always nice to be able to go a step back fast ;)

BroadwayAPI is a PHP class to extract / export channel playlists and EPG from the PCTV Broadway. These can be reused with OpenELEC, XBMC, Kodi  and the IPTV Simple PVR Client Addon.

I am using the setup on a local server to handle playlists and epg updates for multiple XBMC setups.

wpml-ready
WPML for WordPress is a powerful plugin to build a multi-language setup. But it still comes short in some areas, especially when it comes to a custom integration into plugins or when using custom post-types.

A simple SELECT helps to get that id yourself :)
