You Show Daily, The Grid View

Just noting some small details to add to the You Show Daily site, where we are trying a series of daily creative challenges related to the purposes of the open seminar.

Now a nice grid showing all of the responses together

daily responses

People respond to a challenge by sending a tweet to @youshow15 with a hash tag that corresponds to each challenge. The site harvests the tweets that are replies to this account; internally each is stored as a WordPress Custom Post type called a “response”. Therefore, I can (and did) develop custom template archive-response.php called when a request is made to show all responses.

This is a modification of the theme’s default archive.php, made to find the URL for the tweet (stored as post meta data) and the wordpress function to issue an embed of the tweet.

It’s the little things.
