I was asked to come into a project very late in the game. We had 4 1/2 hours until we were to show off a prototype of the company’s new “portfolio” site. We were five days behind with minimal functionality accomplished. I was asked to save the day.
A little nervous, and completely in the dark still about what this WordPress theme we’d bought was all about, I agreed to give it my best shot. I’ve worked with WordPress plenty of times, I had a decent understanding of how the API sorta worked, and I know PHP like the back of my hand. Still, tearing into someone’s code often times translates into hours of just figuring out their style and where everything is laid out.
