I had originally intended on just getting a coffee mug for myself but then I discovered this whole world of merchandising where you can stick whatever image you want on just about anything with absolutely zero out of pocket costs. It all just kind of snow-balled from there. I wanted to put his face on everything and before I knew it, The Buddie had his own webstore. It’s all a bit creepy to be honest, especially The Buddie Snuggie and women’s underwear. I don’t know why anybody would want to buy anything on there other than myself and that’s ok. Sales isn’t the point. Just seeing his face on all that crap makes me laugh.
I bought the domain name for five years to keep me company and started up a Facebook page for him. If you want updates on The Buddie’s evolution, make sure to give that like button a quick click.
Depending on motivation, these “how-to’s” may or may not become a regular occurrence. I get asked web questions all the time and instead of having to explain the same thing over and over again, I’d like to just start cataloging my solutions.
I’ll kick things off with a quickie:
You’re trying to use jQuery in your WordPress theme, widget or plugin but you keep getting an error that’s something along the lines of “Result of expression ‘$’ [undefined].”
Use “.noConflict()” to get your party started.
// Code that uses jQuery's regular "$" can hang out in here.
