It’s no secret that WordPress is my go-to for content management system driven web sites. It’s free. It’s mature and it’s got a huge community both in terms of support and in its plugins library. There’s no need to re-invent the wheel most of the time.
I’m always looking for more snippets of code, markup, etc. to add to my always growing TextExpander list of bits I’ll reuse. This is a definite one I immediately added.
Working for an agency with a traditional print background, our designers are often hung up on widows and orphans. With most designs these days having some form of responsive and/or fluid component, it’s hard not to have the occasional widow or orphans. While I’ve admittedly never spent much time trying to come up with a solution, a quick Google search tonight found this post from a few years back that uses a few lines of jQuery to basically insert a non-breaking space to prevent single words from dropping to their own line all by themselves.
It’s a great start, and the couple lines of jQuery have been added to my large, but still ever-growing list of text snippets in TextExpander.

I’ve had the tab open since late March about Apple making nightly builds of Safari. I downloaded it soon after, but have yet to explore, nor find a reason to use Apple’s Safari Technology Preview.
