Good web design begins by asking the questions, “Who is it we want this website to serve?” and “How can we do that?” After studying the Conservancy for a bit, learning about its mandates, what it’s been doing and what it wants to do, I came to realize that there are about five major groups who would benefit from this website.
I’ve finally done something I’ve been meaning to do since I started coding 10 years ago. I listened to my website with a screen reader. Besides compassion, there are lots reasons to up one’s game in this aspect of frontend development.
While working recently with a Client who was new to WordPress, I realized the words ‘widget’ and ‘plugin’ have different meanings inside and outside of WordPress. Outside of WP, developers use the word ‘widget’ to mean any ready-made code that you can add to your website. ‘Widgets’ in WordPress have a special meaning.
