So it’s the end of 2007. Huzzah! The Seahawks are in the playoffs again. I’m working, if only temporarily, at the Seattle Times, and things are looking good.
My friend Jonathan sat down with me to work on a new budget to help me reach my financial goals, so starting Jan 1 I’ll have to start being more fiscally responsible. Eh.
In any case, it’s time to roll out a new design for the ol’ webpage. Looks like I spoke too soon. Serious CSS errors have been found! I was looking over at wpdesigner’s website (I actually wrote a few articles for him a few months back) and I came across a nice new tutorial that he had put together. It’s called How to Code a WordPress Theme, and it is much better than his former tutorials.
I followed it all the way through during a sleepless night,
and what you behold now is the results. Pretty snazzy, eh? I customized it quite a bit, although you can still see the remnants of his Wrath wordpress theme that he used in his tutorial.
As you can see from the screenshot, it actually started as a theme I wanted to design for our website Geek-vs-Life.com, but I ran into some difficulties along the way.
It works great for my needs though. I’ll be continually tweaking it as I go along, (It’s busted!) and eventually I guess I should release it, if Small Potato is cool with it. We’ll see.
Serious stinking css errors have delayed the emergence of my new theme. Drats!
