About Wayne

I would like to have everything about my life in one place, but it seems people are interested in different bits. So I’ve ended up with all sorts of sites everywhere!

I’ve run a blog about macintosh stuff at macintoshhowto.com

Anything about our family is at 7.barracks.cl

I have a blog and discussions about life as a pastor at pastor2pastor.org.au

Then there’s dubbo.org which is a tourist site about Dubbo.

I designed our church website using joomla and shared the template for it, which eventually ended up in the german edition of Joomla for Dummies!

I have written some wordpress themes called slidingdoor and picture perfect and they have a support site here. There’s two nice reviews of it here and here.

This site is for everything else, stuff I want to remember and perhaps come back to later, stuff I want to share, websites I like, ideas and so on.

Enjoy!

  1. Hello,

    Fist of all let me tell you how much we appreciate and respect what you do on WordPress.org. Great job, keep it up.
    I am the co-founder of a new wp theme shop called ThemeFuse.

    The reason I’m writing is to ask you if you would be interested in joining our cool affiliate program where
    you will earn 30% of every theme sold if you spread the word about our wp themes. We already have a couple of
    partnerships going with plugin developers from WP.org and things are going great for them. We thought to contact
    some of the top theme designers and try the same with them. Here’s one example from one of the plugins promotions: http://themefuse.com/images/plugin_page_example.jpg

    Check out our website and themes, let us know if this partnership is something that you might be interested in and we’ll
    pick it up from there with the rest of details.

    You can read more about the affiliate program here http://themefuse.com/wp-themes-affiliate-program/

    Thanks a lot for taking the time to read our email.

    All the best,
    Dimitrie Baitanciuc
    ThemeFuse Co-Founder.

  2. Wayne –

    First, I love the Sliding Door theme. I’m working with it right now for a little project I’m doing and absolutely love the look. Great job!

    Second, if you happen to run across my little sis (Colleen) or her husband (Jonathan) tell them I said hi if you would, please. 🙂 I just pinged Colleen asking if she knew you since she lives in Dubbo and goes to a Presbyterian church there and she said she might know you. 🙂

  3. My it is a small works! Said hi to Colleen – and met your folks at Christmas to boot! Glad the theme was useful and thanks for the note. Wayne

  4. Hi Wayne,
    I used and slightly modified your Sliding Door theme for my personnal.
    It’s not very “clean” (used position: fixed for sidebar, etc…) but it’s, by the way, a modification of your theme.
    Do you want the source ?

    Regards,
    Gérald

  5. Hi Wayne
    We’re new to WordPress, we love your theme. We have start working on our site but realised we can’t remove the comments and some sidebar stuff. Are we able to get the code for just the sliding door menu from you directly?

    thanks Mike

  6. Hi,
    Thanks you for share your wordpress theme…
    I have a question for sliding door… Is it possible to place picture in header ? I would like replace title by my logo (PNG).
    I don’t found how make this…
    Thank you very much and sorry for my poor English (i’m French)

  7. hi wayne! i’ve *loved* your “sliding doors” theme for years and have used in on my website.

    recently when the “is your website mobile friendly?” google thing came out of nowhere, i scrambled to get the website responsive. i actually found WP “Twenty Fifteen” theme quite good (and saved me from hand-crafting bootstrap or otherwise frameworks, phew!)

    however that knocked out *your* theme — which of course I really really wanted.

    So! check this out — it’s a simple plugin instead of theme idea (which I’m using on my site). I took your setup and switched it from mootools to the more std jQuery, minimized the JS needs, and moved the rest to responsive CSS. Whatcha think? feel free to poach/incorporate to anything you’re up to next.

    And thanks for all these years for the free theme that I literally have called “home”. 😎
    warmly,
    -Tracey
