I downloaded Monkey a few months ago but since then I didn’t have much time to get into it. Now though I’m going to start and restart some projects using both Monkey and BlitzMax. First up, is combining my bmax libraries into a nice framework for monkey and updating Texpac for it.
Ok, I’ve started back on the site a little and finished the few things that kept me from pushing out the wordpress version. What do you think? The new WordPress pages are clearly not as fast as the old Rocks pages and the old Texpac pages built with just basic html, but I like the options it provides.
I was having the worst time trying to get 2 columns to work right. Then I ran it through a validator and found a h2 tag close with an h3 tag and a div not closed. I’m feeling much better now!
I was finding it difficult to find the right css elements when modifying the twenty ten theme… I got a little frustrated and decide just to build the theme from the ground up. I’m starting with just the required php from twenty ten and a completely blank css file. I have a good idea what I want it to look like so hopefully this won’t be too difficult for someone new to WordPress.
While my playing around with WordPress has been a lot fun, I’ve not been able to find a theme that I really like for the site. I was thinking about creating my own from using the Rocks as inspiration especially since it already looks like a WP theme… and it just looks pretty great IMO. Thinking about it though, I’ve want something a little more generic and also the orange banner, which I love, can’t stay because it clashes with the ooeyug logo which I want on the banner.
