YouTube Embed Test

Changing YouTube Channel Display Name

There’s a roundabout route to the Channel Display Name setting on YouTube. I’ve had occasion to need to change it for a couple of clients lately, so this post is by way of a reminder for myself, next time I need to.

N.B. This is currently how it works if you’re already opted in the YouTube One Channel format.

  1. Log in to YouTube and go to your Channel.
  2. Hover over the display name under the Channel Art. Click the pencil icon that appears at the right.
  3. Choose “Channel Settings”
  4. Choose “Advanced” under Channel Settings in the left hand menu


First time out testing Codekit on a new project today. What an awesome app! Nice to get a start on some CSS preprocessing, and generally streamline my workflow.

Rare Family Photo-op

The Davis’ – June 9th, 2012

These photo opportunities don’t come around too often, now I live on a different continent!

New coming soon…

You may have noticed that we were offline for a day or two while hosts were being changed. Back now and expecting a design other than the WP default to go live shortly…

Starting to tire of this head cold now…

Happy New Year! (2012 Edition)

Not much to report, other than to wish anybody who may be looking in a very Happy New Year!

Back to radio silence… redesign.

Launched my latest client project over the weekend: a redesign of trombonist Chris Washburne‘s site. In common with other recent projects, a couple of which should be launched in the next day or two as well, my role was to theme the graphic design in WordPress. Pretty pleased with how this one came out!

Full Refresh – A How To

In my daily work updating client sites for, one of the most common responses I receive from clients is that they don’t see the updates when they view their website on their computer. There are one of two things I have them do, depending on the site, which is to do a ‘Full Refresh’ of the page or ‘Clear The Browser Cache’. This post is a ‘How To’ for the former.

There are two ways to fully refresh the page. One works on all systems and the other has variations depending on whether you’re on a Windows PC or a Mac. If any Linux users read this, please comment and let me know whether either or both work for you – I don’t have a Linux install running to test on.

1. Hold the Shift key and click the Refresh button in your browser.

Sometimes people aren’t familiar with the ‘Refresh button’ in the browser. It’s also known as ‘Reload’.

In Internet Explorer it is a pair of curved arrows which look like:

IE6 Refresh or IE7+ refresh.

In other browsers (Firefox, Safari, Chrome etc) it is a circular arrow which looks like:
Firefox refresh or Safari refresh

2. Keyboard Shortcuts

My preferred way to fully refresh the page is to use the following Keyboard shortcut.

On Windows PC: Ctrl+R
On Mac: Command/Cmd/Apple+R

Quick click on the keyboard and you’re done!
