Dave Winer has come up with yet another amazing innovation — codecasting. A codecast is an RSS feed with enclosures, like a podcasting feed, but instead of linking to MP3 files, it links to bits of code.

Bad Blogging

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom’s press secretary, Peter Ragone, has admitted that he posted comments on several blogs using someone else’s name. That’s no crime, but it doesn’t help his credibility.

Custom Theme

Well, I finally got around to creating my first truly custom WordPress Theme, based on my Golden Gate Bridge design. I’m still tweaking it, but I’m pretty happy. I’ve learned a lot about WordPress in the process.

Theme Customization

I customized the Style Sheet for the “Current” Theme with one of my own pictures (Can anyone identify the location?) and a few touches to the Title and Description colors.


I’m trying on the “Current” Theme today. I like it!

First Impressions

OK, so the first thing I did was to copy the Default Theme. Second, edit the first few lines of “style.css” so WordPress will properly recognize this as a unique Theme. Now I’ve got a sandbox in which to experiment with my own WordPress Theme. If it ever gets out of control and I can’t fix it, or get tired of trying, then I can always revert to the Default Theme.

Some things are a matter of preference. I like to see the entire HTML framework, i.e. html, header and body tags, all in the same template. It appears that this means extra code for a bunch of templates. Maybe there’s another way around…

Hello World!

I’m trying out WordPress. So far it seems pretty cool. I like the tinyMCE editor!

OK. It didn’t take long to break my templates… I’ve already fixed one problem… More changes coming… I’m playing with this thing.
