RSS Feeds & Sidepanel Customization

Posted on January 30, 2010

I'm tellin ya this wordpress stuff is more impressive everyday i look at it. not bad for not looking at any documentation, just trial and error stuff so its pretty intuitive to figure things out.   today i customized the sidebar and added one of the rss feeds from,  you can scroll down to the bottom of the sidebar.  I can't believe how simple it was, and can't believe I waited this long to take wordpress out for a drive.

I want to continue playing just a bit more, then I figure I can start posting some other stuff.   Ooops, thats probably the kiss o death, I'll probably never post again now.     Hope not.

Sometimes Things Aren’t Really That Complicated

Posted on January 29, 2010

I tend to assume things are more complicated than they are sometimes...technically speaking that is... 

I'm back in here playing around with wordpress to customize the theme a bit.  I've created a custom header graphic I want to display instead of  just having the defaul text with my name there <boring>.  When rendering the site after uploading the graphic there was some overlapping going on, so I figured I needed to update the header height.  So I go mulling through the page and css files trying to figure out where the height setting was set <buried>. 

Lo and behold its just another setting on the theme appearance page, uh, right under the place where I checked the box to use a graphic instead of text,  doh!  I plugged in the new height setting, saved it, and shazam!
