WordPress Pagination: How to Make it Work

Posted: May 6th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Development, Tips and Tricks | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

Function next_posts_link/ previous_posts_link prints a link to the next/ previous set of posts within the current query. It default usage is

  1. < ?php next_posts_link(); ?>
  2. < ?php previous_posts_link(); ?>

And usually you work with the pagination such way:

  1. < ?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
  2. < ?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
  3. < ?php the_content(); ?>
  4. < ?php endwhile; ?>
  5. < ?php next_posts_link('&laquo; Older Entries') ?>
  6. < ?php previous_posts_link('Newer Entries &raquo;') ?>
  7. < ?php else : ?>
  8. <p>Page 404</p>
  9. < ?php endif; ?>

Once working on the implementation of Calendar app design for Android I got a problem: I need to put 3 elements (right button, month title, left button) in an android layout.

The requirements were:

1. They should all be in one row.
2. The central part (month) should fill all space of the display width (except part where buttons are located).

It seems to be easy at the very first sight.. in fact all my elements were stuck to the left or buttons wouldn’t move to the right and left side..

Effective Time Management: Meetings

Posted: April 24th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Effective Management | Tags: , , | No Comments »

There is an important shift for the right time management in focus from activities to results: being busy is not the same as being effective.

Everybody knows this stressful feeling when a day completely filled with meetings and you ask yourself: ‘When do I get to do my real job?’. The only correct question here is ‘Was that worth the time I just spent?’. If you left meetings saying ‘That was good conversation, but what do they expect me to do? Does this make me more effective?’, then it is not worth your time.

Meetings can help facilitate communication. Disappointment is derived from unmet expectations. Communicating ever changing status helps set or reset expectations and dispel disappointment.
