Say you needed to add all the users in your multisite to a single site on that multisite. You can do that like this. With a bit of tweaking you could also copy all users from one site (or multiple sites) to another or multiple other sites.

Book Review: The Geek’s Guide to the Writing Life

I’m a sucker for books about writing. And add in an author who is part of the National Writing Project and you have my interest. So I grabbed a copy of The Geek’s Guide to the Writing Life by Stephanie Vanderslice, and dove in. I’m glad I did. With a folksy, honest, funny voice on […]

On a Reddit forum that it didn’t run but had been invited to serve as a moderator. That also did not go over well. In fact, it’s safe to say that people went into somewhat of a rage.

The Mess I’m Making (is the Poem I’m Writing)

I was writing and rewriting this poem during some quiet writing time in the classroom the other day. Not sure the framing of the poem works, but the mess of the page is how I often write (although when I write with keyboard and screen, all that notation and revision becomes rather invisible). Peace (poems), […]

Sorting and Filtering With Isotope
