So, after a weekend of fiddling about with CSS and PHP and learning at least the basic inâ€™s and outâ€™s of WordPress I think Iâ€™ve got the site up and running. Iâ€™m sure that in the up coming days and weeks Iâ€™ll be making a lot more changes as I flesh things out and I find the various gremlins that have hidden themselves in the deeper pages. I also want to get a search tool set up in the sidebar, but that wonâ€™t be really important for a while since at the moment there is one entire post to be searched. Of course a simple search form isnâ€™t all that hard and I set up one earlier. The only difficulty was in trying to make it disappear at certain times, but Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™ll twig it out.
Iâ€™m also sure that Iâ€™ll be fiddling about a bit with the layout, trying to tweak it here and there. I donâ€™t really like how Iâ€™ve put my email link all the way at the bottom of the sidebar but then I also didnâ€™t like it at the top, under â€˜Aboutâ€™. Iâ€™m also not wildly enthusiastic over the title of â€˜Metaâ€™ in the sidebar, either, but I havenâ€™t been able to come up with something else short and pithy that seems appropriate.
