Mason Law Homepage Updates

New updates on Mason Law homepage includes image slider, most-used links, tighter typography and full-width footer. On the front-end development, JavaScript is stripped down and CSS is completely rewritten using Sass for easy maintainability. Media queries were also reduced to fewer breakpoints to focus on mobile version.

Roll Your Own Social Media Buttons

I recently tested out several WordPress’s social media share plug-ins and disappointed with unnecessary injections of JavaScripts and CSS. Some services even use their own site as a gateway to server up the social media services. I was frustrated and ended up rolling my own, thanks to this blog post. Here’s my customized codes:

<a href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=<?php the_permalink();?>&t=<?php the_title(); ?>" target="_blank"><img src="facebook.png" alt="Share on Facebook"></a>

<a href=”https://plusone.google.com/_/+1/confirm?hl=en-US&url=<?php the_permalink() ?>” target=”_blank”><img src=”google-plus.png” alt=”Share on Google+”></a>

<a href=”http://twitter.com/share?text=<?php the_title(); ?> -&url=<?php the_permalink() ?>” target=”_blank”><img src=”twitter.png” alt=”Share on Twitter”></a>

<a href=”http://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&url=<?php the_permalink() ?>” target=”_blank”><img src=”linkedin.png” alt=”Share on LinkedIn”></a>
