What’s cooler, WordPress, or its users?
Brice has an interesting Video Blogging Script that enables him to post Videos from his Sony-Ericsson P900 over GPRS to his WordPress blog. How cool is that?
Good question, we don’t know the definitive answer to that!
A preliminary search of the premises did not reveal any downloadable scripts for the use of WordLog readers, and I hope Brice will oblige us all soon.
Root has come out with a couple of alternate template+stylesheet (index.php + wp-layout.css) packages for WordPress 1.2.
I like to think that it started with his comment/question, which goes :
How does someone convert their default layout to a two column, centred layout, with a footer, and using float from CSS 1?
At that time, I thought it was too detailed a question to be included in the FAQ, as I beleived the chances of someone actually voicing that question would be rather low. Kudos to Root for having gone ahead and answered that question now.
Two designs are available,
He has a detailed explanation of why he thinks the changes are neccesary at the pages I have linked to. Read them and use the templates if you like. I agree with him about that fact that for new users who require a template with a header, a footer and two or three columns, those templates are good to get started with. If you decide to use them, know that you also have to get the index.php provided , along with the stylesheets.
WordLog uses a modified version of Root’s creation. So if you need to create a two column design, with a header and a footer, and with an Image Banner, you could use the WordLog stylesheet. In addition to the header, or banner, image, a change I made was to increase the width of #rap, #content and #menu to about 800, 600 and 200 pixels respectively.
