May 11th, 2008 · No Comments · Category: WordPress

So you want to create a an author page for your WordPress blog? Good, I don’t know why most blog themes don’t already come with one. Fortunately, it’s not too difficult. I won’t bother explaining the code to those of you who don’t know or care about programming ’cause frankly I couldn’t anyway. I’m a designer and front end developer and certainly not well versed in PHP language. But, fortunately for your I am excellent at problem solving, analyzing and just following bloody directions :0)

New WordPress Themes You’ll Love (3)

April 22nd, 2008 · No Comments · Category: Design · WordPress

Below are some especially beautifully designed and conceptualized WordPress themes I think you’ll love.

Under Water

Under Water: Just look at it. This is a well conceptualized, simple and fun WordPress theme. Great use of a background png and one of few times I see a static background with scrolling content not seem amateurish and visually distracting. I also love how the post meta is like a little sidebar for each post.

April 22nd, 2008 · 2 Comments · Category: Design and Development · Tools · WordPress

OPMLRecently I’ve had to manipulate my OPML files to get some feeds and a blogroll to work the way I want. I found that there are fortunately quite a few options to get links and rss feed URLs to read and link the way I need and thought I would share these options with y’all. What is an OPML file you ask? Well, let me show you rather than tell you. Add “wp-links-opml.php” to the end of your home page URL for your WordPress blog (example: See all that XML code gibberish, that’s your blogroll (list of links) as an outline.

I’ve been quite a busy bee these past few weeks and been so inconsistent with posting at The WordPress PAD. Other than learning how to use Drupal and Joomla content management systems, and the new WordPress 2.5, I’m also starting a blogging network for bloggers in the City of Oakland where I live, work and play…mostly. In doing the research for the design and development of the blog network, I’ve come a cross some great information, plugins and trends in blogging that all relate in a sense to a term I’ve just recently learned about yet apparently I have always been wanting to express in the perfect (in my mind) web presence. It’s called Lifestreaming. Lifestreaming is basically pulling all your web activities from multiple sources online on to one space, your web site.
