Cleaner Theme

Changed to a nice clean WordPress theme that uses Tailwind CSS. Based on the wp-tailwind starter theme by freeshifter. (Thank you!)

Will share my changes on Github shortly.

Pretty Code

Tried a number of WordPress plugins while looking for a syntax highlighter that supports the regular Gutenberg code block and does not come with a ton of unnecessary bloat.

I think I found it. You’re looking at Code Syntax Block by¬†Marcus Kazmierczak. What do you think?

 * Retrieves the cron lock.
 * Returns the uncached `doing_cron` transient.
 * @ignore
 * @since 3.3.0
 * @global wpdb $wpdb WordPress database abstraction object.
 * @return string|false Value of the `doing_cron` transient, 0|false otherwise.
function _get_cron_lock() {
        global $wpdb;

        $value = 0;
        if ( wp_using_ext_object_cache() ) {
                 * Skip local cache and force re-fetch of doing_cron transient
                 * in case another process updated the cache.
                $value = wp_cache_get( 'doing_cron', 'transient', true );
        } else {
                $row = $wpdb->get_row( $wpdb->prepare( "SELECT option_value FROM $wpdb->options WHERE option_name = %s LIMIT 1", '_transient_doing_cron' ) );
                if ( is_object( $row ) ) {
                        $value = $row->option_value;

        return $value;
