WordPress has yet to cease to amaze me. I’ve just made a few changes to the layout of the blog in just a couple of minutes. Two new categories were added, ‘Entertainment’ and ‘Site related’, and the side bar has been reorganised.
I prefer the new side bar to the standard layout and it was incredibly easy to put together as all the xxx.php files are accessible and editable from the admin panel.
I will look at creating a new style soon enough as my skills in editing css and php improve. Right now, I’m a n00b when it comes to these things, but the ease of use of WordPress is encouraging to someone who is normally scared of fucking up anything coding related.
I have yet to decide whether to make this blog the main page of Devious Tyrant or to create a new homepage and link from there.
I’ve just realised that there is no way to get from there to here, so I’ll go about fixing that now.
There we go. Homepage now links direct to the blog rather then the forums. People can follow a link on the sidebar to reach the forums if they wish.
From this to what you see now in a few hours. I took the existing theme and completely revamped it. It took a lot of trial and error to get right and certain things stumped me for what seemed like days. This .php malarky is pretty easy if you’re prepared to roll up your sleeves and crack on with it.
I am very pleased with the results and I hope you are too!
