Who would have though tat creating a blog page for a custom wordpress site would take me longer than the actual site.
I have been looking , googling (it will be in the dictionary soon) everywhere to find out why my calendar links where using the index.php as a template.
And guess what !??? Always go back to the basics when you get stuck… So i did and opened the WP Hierarchy Map and realised that I didn’t have
I have been very quite lately but it’s because there isn’t enough hours during the day to do it all…
Today was pretty interesting ! Although it started badly with 2 hours wasted in class trying to fight my worst enemy “WEB MARSHALL”.
But I did a lot and learn a lot too.. And i have made my first widget … Out of a pod !!!
I have been back to the designing bunch for a week now and I am loving it. It’s been a while ( or at least it feels like it) since I designed a website. It is always good to look at whats out there and I found some amazing site this week which really inspired me.
I was faster this time around in the design stage as I had a very clear idea of what this site needed. And all mockups have been approved yesterday. The home page is nearly done (HTML/CSS is done), and I am attacking the good stuff now… jQuery (my best friend).
I have found some nice plugin for slide shows like Nivo Slider. Very easy to use.
Kelly Dean shared some useful CSS properties today for creating a box shadow that should work on most browsers ( Firefox, webkits, and IE7/8).
I haven’t actually tested it yet but I will soon.
-moz-box-shadow: 0px 0px 40px #000;
-webkit-box-shadow: 0px 0px 40px #000;
box-shadow: 0px 0px 40px #000;
/* For IE 8 */
-ms-filter: “progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(Strength=1, Direction=180, Color=’#000000′)”;
/* For IE 5.5 – 7 */
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(Strength=1, Direction=180, Color=’#000000′);
Actually today I have 2 new plugins:
Tinymce lets you manage and add more formatting option into your “Upload/insert” area and has a fix for some html tags.
Pods CMS allows to create new dashboard pods so your not restricted to only “Pages and Posts”. Useful to create a product list for example.
