For those of you who read my blog and don’t have it read to you through an RSS feed + text speech reader (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE YOU LAZY BUM), you may have noticed that I have changed the template for my site. It’s definitely a work in progress as my css skills squeak and I am still debating upgrading to WP 2.7. It’s very different from 2.6 and I had hoped to work out any incompatibility bugs with my favourite plugins before beginning to code something for work…but I’m scared.
Stay tuned. The following changes are coming soon:
1. Potential switch to WP 2.7. This could mean … avatars. http://wordpress.org/development/2008/12/coltrane/
2. Search bar is broken. Not really sure if it came broken or if I broke it switching from the ugly “go” image that came with the template. Lightning is far cooler, and yet, not as cool as working lighting. TBFixed.
3. Twitter background. In my last template, I had coded the sidebar as I used a very old and very simple template that didn’t allow widgets. I liked the template as I wanted to force myself to get familiar with the WordPress components, but now I find that the simple widget component is (AWESOME WORD ALERT) thwarting my ability to add backgrounds to the sidebar. I hope I can figure this out as I liked the bg I had up before.
Following my site fixes and redesign, I’ll publish my “year in pictures” slideshow that I am simultaneously working on. See k-dot loose 20 pounds, move to Vancouver, take in a party or two and craft her pants off. It’s not to be missed (especially the minus pants part).
