Well I finished adding in the sidebar I wanted. I am happy that I completed what I wanted, but I still want more I guess.
What I’m doing now is making my own theme from scratch. I have a design in my head (actually I drew it on paper) and I’m pretty excited about it. Whether to keep it for my own, or leave it open for the public, that I’m not quite sure of.
We’ll see what happens… stay tuned.
I really like this theme, I just need another sidebar. I have no choice but to add one to the theme I’ve come to like.
Please excuse the mess while my site is under construction.
I recently installed a plugin called WP Wall (you should now notice it in the sidebar.) I’m pretty happy with how it worked out, but I noticed there was a problem validating my markup after installing this plugin.
The problem was simple, an input tag had and ID and name of “page”. This ID was already in use by my WordPress theme (Elegant Grunge), and as we all know no two tags can have the same ID. Generally speaking, page is a pretty common identifier and I’m not surprised that it was already in use.
Open wp-wall.php, and go to line 243
$result.='<input type="hidden" name="page" id="page"value="'.$page.'" />';
$result.='<input type="hidden" name="wallpage" id="wallpage" value="'.$page.'" />';
Open wp-wall.js.php, and go to line 117
var page= $('#wallcomments #page');
var page= $('#wallcomments #wallpage');
I changed the identifier from page to wallpage, but you can use anything you like as long as something else isn’t already using that specific identifier. Hopefully this won’t cause any conflicts within the WP Wall plugin, only time will tell.
Evidentially, the mySQL db for sibble.com was not being properly backed up. And, of course, last weekend I lost the db. I don’t really blame anyone but myself, things like this happen and it’s my responsibility to make sure my data is properly backed up. Luckily, searching Google for sibble.com while using the ‘daterange’ attribute, gave me a cached index of my site. I was able to restore my posts. I will be doing more work to the website, as well as keeping up with fresh content.
Thank you Google!
Haven’t been on here in a while, but I’ll be posting again as well as updating the site. I’ll also be posting updates on the Z.
I’ve done some changes to the website. I also looked into implementing a photo gallery but I wanted to use an opensource prebuilt one. The only one I liked is Gallery2. For this to work safe_mode must be disabled on the server box this site resides on. Unfortunatly, it’s enabled. I just bought a Flickr Pro account instead. To be honest, I like Flickr so much I’d probably just rather use this instead of having my own. Last, but not least, I’ve enabled user registration. Feel free to signup.
