A New Daily Dose Look

Earlier today I was setting up a new WordPress installation. I didn’t realize it at the time that I upgraded, but version 1.5 is quite a bit different than the old version. I don’t know if it’s better or worse, but it seemed a lot easier to control, primarily because there are so many different php files in the theme folder. My current theme only has three php files. I assume that’s because it’s a legacy from the old way of doing things.

It’s time, I’ve determined, to start over from scratch and actually learn some CSS. That means you may see some strange happenings in the way of formatting over the next week. If you see something you like or don’t like, you can comment here or drop me an email.

  1. Been there, done that. Just last week, in fact. Creating a new CSS from scratch is a fun experience. My advice, though, is to do it off-line if possible. I used FrontPage to work on my new style sheet. It saves lots of embarrassment.

  2. Fun, huh? I’m looking at these style sheets that ship with WP and I can’t make heads or tails of them. I change something, nothing changes. I change something else, three things change. I’ve got a lot to learn, I fear.

    How about emailing your CSS to me so I have a benchmark?

  3. One thing I’m noticing in the current setup is Bullet points change the font style after it ends.
    The Formula Formatter post I just made is an example.

Posting code? Use <pre> tags for VBA and <code> tags for inline.
