About me

My name is Martin Lormes and I am an IT geek.

I live near Hamburg, Germany. I work full-time as a Systems Engineer. Next to that day job I make a few extra Euros as an independent consultant, developer, and author. (My bosses know about that night job.)

Here’s a brief overview over things I have done:

I have been a speaker at FileMaker Developer Conferences in Phoenix 2003, 2004, and 2005.

I have contributed over 50 articles to the German print publication “FileMaker Magazin”. The web application I wrote and maintained for them ran from 1998 until March of 2010.

I have written a ton of code in Microsoft ASP, PHP, XML/XSLT, using FileMaker and MySQL databases. I have trained Software Developers in using FileMaker, MySQL, PHP, XML/XSLT , and Microsoft ASP.

I have been (and I still am) in charge of Windows and Linux servers, running (among other things) FileMaker and MySQL databases, IIS and Apache webservers, Postfix and Exchange mail servers, etc. I have trained Systems Administrators and Systems Engineers in using Microsoft Windows and Exchange, and trained Windows Administrators and Developers in using Linux.

If any of the things I write about on my blog are of interest to you and you would like to hire me: you can contact me via E-mail to martinhh at gmail.com

  1. Hi,

    I saw your alert plugin for wordpress would like to ask you something.

    I have one blog(ClickTheTrailer.com) which is movie trailers blog. Users can visit and watch movie trailers.

    1. What i want to do is put “Notify Me” button on every post page(not widget) so users can click and submit their email address or phone number in that box. User will choose which way to get notify.

    2. I have movie release date as a custom field for every post(movie). So what i want basically after user submit his/her email or phone number, this plugin checks release date data everyday once and if movie is released send notification to that users.

    btw: SMS details will be provided

    Please i would like to know how long it will take you to write this plugin for me and how much it will cost me?

    Thank you for replying,

    please reply to my email

  3. Hi,

    I couldn’t send a message on the support forum, or even send a message, so I decided to ask for your help with Meta Tag Manager.
    I have it instaled in two of my websites. By mistake I saved a meta tag to apear on all posts. I removed it latter but it still apears as html text at the end of all my posts. What can I do to fix it?
    Thanks a lot. Regards.

  4. Hi Cláudia, Can you send me a link to your blog so I can have a look at the HTML? What you are describing could be caused by a caching plugin like Super Cache.

  5. Do you have any plans to add the ability for blog visitors to use the open graph while they are leaving a comment on the blog? For example, a user posts a link to a cool website and wants to showcase a thumbnail and blurb in the comment. This feature would be just like Facebook, but would not interact with Facebook at all.

  6. Dear Martin,

    I tried to install your comment e-mail verification plugin on http://www.democratieubb.ro – a website dealing with the democratisation of the Babes-Bolyai University of Cluj, Romania. I could not make the plugin work. Could you please tell me if you tried the plugin with WordPress 3.3.1 (and if it worked for you) or if you are planning to release a new version?

    Thanks a lot.

  7. Dear Martin.
    I read your solution to my problem on the wordpress.org website. (http://wordpress.org/extend/ideas/topic/let-comments-on-photos-attachments-appear-in-the-rss-feed-for-comments).
    I find it very frustrating that comments on my pictures doesn’t appear on the homepage as recent comment. If I put a comment on the homepage, blog or whole gallery it does work. I contacted the f8 lite support and they say it is impossible for the theme??!
    I am not really a php genie, so I tried to implement your lines in my template, but the writing of the theme f8 lite is so different than than your example. do you have any tips. Thank you!

  8. Dear Martin!
