You don’t have favorites among your children, but you do have allies.
You’re a designer so ultimately, you’re something of a performer wont to wow observers with impressive feats of legerdemain; you always have a card up your sleeve.
Note: this is a bit of a rambling intro. You can safely skip down to the “Defining the function” section.
That card up your sleeve, though, is just a party trick. Your loyal Dribbble gawkers (and your mom) think its cool but otherwise only your super local clients think it solves their problem. Long story short: your card is a bit parochial, sorry to say. It doesn’t keep you Ron Burgundy “San Diego” classy.
Luckily, WordPress does. Even before your clients know what they want, you already know theres a WordPress function for that! Of all your bratty and entitled design kids, WP is the least entitled. You can mostly tell it what to do and it will (for the most part) do just that.
