Well, Hello There!


Welcome! You've reached Portland web designer and graphic designer Adam Wood's shanty on the web. You my friend have found a great web site. Here you get to find out information about my web design, graphic desgin, my hobbies, and my interests while I'm living in Portland, OR. I'm currently a Portland web designer that works with all size business's from around the world. Check out my company Portland Web Design and Development to see all the services that I offer and more information.

My main focus is developing and designing web sites as well as graphic design. When I'm not geeking out on web design and graphics, I enjoy other passed times and hobbies. One of my other creative outlets is glass blowing. As a hobby for years I've created many unique, colorful pieces of art. You might also run into me at a show (music, theater, etc), dining out on some amazing Portland food, hiking up the trails around Portland, Oregon, or just out and about. Stick around and check out the site. I promise you'll find out a lot about Adam Wood.

Embed Objects Directly in WordPress

August 28th, 2012

I just saw this feature on the newest version of WordPress so I thought I would share in case anyone missed it.  It’s a great new feature that works with many urls and sources around the web.  Check out the official WordPress page about embeds.

On this old, old blog the content area’s width is very narrow so when I initially put in the link to the twitter post I got a larger then expected response that overflowed to the right sidebar.  It wasn’t what I wanted but no problem as there’s a shortcode to fix this.  Try out [embed width=”100″ height=”100″] … &#91/embed;] when you need to change up the snippet.

Google Drive and My Files

Google Drive Terms of Service Screen Shot

Google just launched their new service called Drive.  There’s a million articles around the web about it so if you want to find out the details search it up.  I was thinking of giving it a go with my files, as you all know I currently use Dropbox, but I started to hear and read about the terms of service.  “Worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create, … such content”.  Ouch!  And if I quit using the service? Ouch again!

I think I’ll be keeping Dropbox but it’ll be fun to try out Google Drive.  If you decide to sign up with Dropbox then get some free extra space (for you and me) with my link.
