Style tweaks

First, I want to overlay the title over top of the header image.

Next, I’d like to add a third widget column.  Why are there so few 3-column themes?

WordPress configuration

I need to figure out the following:

Is there a way to blend pages and posts together nicely on the site, so that I don’t have to configure only posts to see them on the main page?  I would like to make a menu that will show me maybe the latest five or so, but allow me to dig down further.

I know I can do it with PHP, but I want to know if there’s a configuration way to do it.

I found something.  Create a blank page and in the “Static page” section of Settings – Reading, choose the blank posts page to view the posts.

jQuery book finished

I finished my jQuery book (at right)

jQuery Pocket Reference

What a great book!  It was much more than a simple functional reference for jQuery, but actually walked through practical implementations of each category of functions.  I learned a lot more from this than I did by reading through Rebecca Murphey’s jQuery book.  (Though to be fair, that is also a very good book, I just found its scheme of some exercise solutions that needed information not taught in the material quite frustrating).

I have already modified some code in a WordPress plugin using the knowledge I’ve gained so far, and I intend to put some of this to use in a mobile web app as well.

Snack: Dogfood

Well hello.

I am finally setting up this blog, not because I really need to share my thoughts with anyone, but because I need more practical WordPress experience.  Unfortunately that means I will have to include content as well as code.  Hope it is a) entertaining b) informative or c) nutritional for all of you.
