WPCoffeeTalk Podcast Episode – That’s Me!

WPCoffeeTalk episode with Maryann Reissig

A few months ago, I was a guest on my friend, Michelle’s, podcast. We talked about our experiences in the WordPress Community here in Rochester, as well as my experience with WPCampus, a community for and by folks who work with WordPress in Higher Ed. I’m so honored that Michelle asked me to on her show, I’ve been a little scared to put this out there because, well, it’s scary! But here it is, and I’m so happy to be part of these communities, where I’ve learned more than I ever though I would and has put me on a path to make the world a more accessible place! (#a11y).

Check out the podcast, send some love to Michelle, too! Tip your barista, why don’t ya??

Web Development Resource List

Over the years, I have found great online resources to help me with my coding work. Many have shared their insight and expertise with me through various resources. Below is a list I’m compiling for my own reference, and I hope you find some help in these resources as well! If you have any questions about building your website, leave me a comment or contact me.

Accessibility

Accessibility is not only important for your website to create a space where everyone can access your products and services, it’s also a legal issue. It can be an overwhelming undertaking to understand how to make your website accessible to all, but there are many resources to help you on your way!

An Interesting Problem with WordPress Integration

I have an interesting issue, and I’m wondering if anyone out there might have some ideas for me.

I’ve got a wordpress site setup (I’m building an Intranet with). I’ve got HESK integrated as well as http commander for a built-in helpdesk/kb and AD file share viewing capabilities. I’m using an active directory login pluggin to hook the site to AD authentication.

What I’d like to do is figure out how to make it a single sign-on. If a user is authenticated on the site with their AD creds, shouldn’t it be somewhat easy to pass that info to iframe for http commander so that they can view their file shares without having to login twice? and the HESK thing – that is a whole other user table in the database, so I have a bit of research to do on that. ┬áMy ultimate goal is to have one sign on for wordpress, and be done.

Any brilliant ideas?
