I’m still not happy with my photo gallery layout. To make matters worse, a recent update fubar’d the individual picture selection so I’ve reverted to the flash pop-out as a temporary fix. Works great unless you’re viewing a full size photo – then you get the scroll bars and too much detail. I love the …

Trying something new here with the layout. I spent some time yesterday browsing WordPress themes and stumbled on ‘elegant-grunge’ by Michael Tyson. I’ve still got a decent sized punch-list before the conversion is complete (mostly formatting consistency, etc.). I’ve also got some work yet to do under the hood with my custom page layouts (the …

Whoa. Total interface change. I’m keyed on horizontal menus in ver. 2.6 and now everything is vertical with drop-downs. I do like new dashboard but it’s going to take a few days to get used to the layout changes. Upgrade went smooth and it doesn’t look like any of my plugins choked so I guess …

Nothing kills your day (or night in some cases) quicker then spending a couple hours trying to track down solutions to coding problems. Especially when you’re not really an expert on the stuff you’re trying to cludge together. Since I learn most of my code-foo via reverse engineering, it takes me a bit longer to …

After 5 minutes of [WordPress template tag codex] searching on the properties of the $query_posts tag, you can fix an issue with the “Next & Previous” page links failing to advance the main page by replacing …
