Slight Improvements to the Site

So, php is tough. Tougher than I thought. There are so many more things I would like to do but can’t because I don’t have a single clue how to even start it! I would love to change the color scheme of all the pages, but I don’t know where the code is in the CSS’s. I would also like to put a picture behind the Page Titles, but I don’t where that code is either… WHEW!

But what have I learned? Well, I learned that you can download icon png’s from anywhere. And that’s a good thing, too, because I was really hating all my badges being different sizes and whatnot. So I figured that out (Thanks Robert) and cleaned it up. Looks WAY better now. Scroll down to the bottom…. see the three pretty Social Networking badges? Believe it or not, it took over an hour to get those right once I actually worked on them.

What else? Oh, I’m loving the Fancy Image Gallery plug-in and figured out how to use that code over in my Blog section. So I made a great change to the last blog post that I made earlier this week.

All I have to say is that it’s really hard to try and learn how to webmaster while co-raising a child these days. Really hard. But you do what you can when you can with what you got, I guess.

So what else do I want to with the site? I think I should put that here so that I can refer back:
– Put all of the galleries and blogs about Meadow into a Meadow Menu with all submenus
– Then I could up more stuff about shooting and golf
– Learn how the hell to use RSS Feeds to create an interesting news site
– Figure out how I can stylishly integrate my Tweets and Facebook stata on to the site. The colors have to match
– Come up with a more seamless way to write blog posts. I would like to be able to write and email them in and have the pages auto-create
– I would also like to find out how to put pics in the blog posts without doing alot of manual work
– Learn how to code a real YouTube frame player so that you can choose any video and watch it instead of having to go YouTube and surf around.

I think that’s it for now. At this rate, it’s going to take me 10 years to accomplish these 7 bullet points. Aish!

  1. Site’s looking good, Hoss. I don’t have a ton of experience with WP, but I took a look at your code b/c you were looking for where the background color is declared in the CSS. Looks like there is in an inline style declared in the HTML itself. Look for “body.custom-background { background-color: #526150; }” in the code. Hope this helps.

    • Thanks dude. This post was actually from back when I was still on WolfCMS (HA!) and wanting to really trick it out. But that was built to be lightweight and was really hard to customize.

      WordPress is so much easier. It does almost all of the background work when creating content while Wolf required me to do all that work. This site is going to be very easy to keep up now.

      • My bad. You’d think I’d look at the date/time stamp of the post. Sleep – I need it. Glad to hear WP is easier than Wolf…I think :)
