We're nearing the end of the Task Force and we're as enthusiastic as we were the first week.
Personally, this week has been especially challenging for me as my teammate and I had a wordpress task that tested and is still testing my skills.
Basically what we had to do was make it so that the client could be able to change logos on different pages specifically without affecting other pages. At first we used a plugin called
Logo or Image replace by mycore.global. What this plugin does is add a meta box on a page with two fields, one for the the
src for an image on the page, and another for the
Another problem is too much plugins are not a best practice in wordpress as they can cause maintenance, copyright and version compatibility issues. I have since used my own custom implementation which is an improvement to the plugin but there was still the issue of rendering.
The solution for this is, theoretically, to make it so that the replacement happens before the page is rendered. I have tried to achieve this by trying to add a filter after the user has entered the replacing logo image address which will replace the logo before the page loads but so far it's not working for some reason. If anyone has any ideas you can reach out in the comments and here is the link to my question on Stack Overflow..
So, this week was generally about that task and we are currently working to implement it better according to the client's feedback. Let's hope it works eventually.
