RSS Feeds & Sidepanel Customization

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. Oops, thats probably the kiss o death, I’ll probably never post again now. Hope not.

Sometimes Things Aren’t Really That Complicated

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 default 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!

Hello world!

Wow this wordpress stuff is pretty neat! nice quick install and the interface to install plug-ins and themes is great!
