In this tutorial I want to write about handling special cases and change requests by clients gracefully without introducing code bloat or degrading code quality and maintainability. I'll use a site's navigation menu as an example, as it's relatable and pretty much every site has one. I'll give some examples of real situations and change requests I encountered during projects, and describe multiple approaches to handling them. However, this post is also about the general mindset I find useful for ProcessWire development, which is more about how to handle special cases and still keep your code c
Hey guys, I was wondering if you could answer a few questions of mine... - Does ProcessWire handle high traffic and large content sites? - Is PW a suitable choice for building an image-based site? Something like those inspirational Tumblogs we often see, for example: twotimeselliott.tumblr.com and bybuildshop.tumblr.com.

Although I'm not too artistic, the flexibility of PW allows me to accomodate the design of any artist I am working with and the API gives me to power to do the fun backend stuff. Anyways, before I deploy some sites for production, I wanted to ask the more experienced developers out there what kind of steps they take at the end of a project to make their sites 'production ready'. For example, do you guys combine all your js and css files? do you chan
