First thing this morning, I edited a bunch of contributor posts in WordPress. Being an Editor is a role I seem to have picked up. TBH, I enjoy doing it — it’s good to not be coding all the time. Also, I know the WordPress editor pretty well and I know what to look for when editing posts, e.g. posts have been correctly categorised and tagged, featured images have been uploaded etc. Does being an Editor fit under the role of a full stack developer? Most definitely not, but I suspect it does for many, especially those working in small teams.
For the remainder of the day, I mostly worked on a WordPress theme that I have been developing to replace an ageing website. The deadline for the launch of the new website is the end of this month. I have 5 working days to complete the project. Today’s work involved creating some template files to show content for a custom post type. The post type is for case studies and it features a lot of custom fields and multiple featured images. Nothing ground breaking, but the template turned out well and the case studies look good.
