Inspiration: WordPress Tweaking

I’m still working on the new theme for the blog (though Thursday’s story is finished, and next week’s is slowly peeking out of the closet I keep all my new ideas in). So, most of my inspiration today will be related to HTML, CSS, PHP, and WordPress hacking. Those of you with a blog might like these articles. Those of you who’ve tweaked your WordPress might want to offer me suggestions. And those of you who just read can either apply some of this stuff to writing bitchin’ comments in full HTML, or read something.

From WordPress:  Five Elements For Your Front Page

Also from WordPress:  Site Design and Layout

And here’s the CSS tutorial from W3Schools… there might be flashier ones, but this tutorial is short and blunt and to the point.

Digging into PHP and MySQL and such can get a little trying, but HTML and CSS are pretty powerful on their own, and really aren’t hard to learn. (Especially if you’re like me and grew up with a word processor or typewriter that had control codes.)

I’ll be back a little later with more inspiration.

  1. My fingers are still crossed for that mobile version of the site that I asked for. 🙂 If you’re still using Jetpack, there’s an option there, so it doesn’t have to be harder. There are also plugins.

    I’ll shut up now, I know you’re hard at work. 🙂

  2. Still need to add my author photo and the Goodreads widget. I’m playing with an RSS feed of some other blogs I like. And I need to mirror the whole thing on WordPress.Com
