While this website is pretty much functional, you’ll notice it’s also pretty bare. As I write this, I haven’t funded my Flattr account, the widgets on the side there look out of place and I’ve torn out what I didn’t like from the default TwentyTen theme without putting anything back.
This past weekend, I implemented the Unallocated Space webpage design favored by (those that cared in) the group, so I figured it was just time to get cracking on my own domain. I’m just waiting for some design inspiration to hit me before I venture further. Of course, any feedback is welcome, and your patience while I try to clean things up around here.
At the risk of tipping you off to my Catholicism, I strongly believe in Guardian Angels. Especially ones that reach out in odd ways. Recent case in point: I pulled up my Last.fm recommended channel to drown out a fellow BoltBus passenger on a never ending cell phone conversation, After some Washed Out and a few other pleasantly unremarkable tracks…there it was. Like an ex you barely recognize but would never forget, wondering whether or not you’re hallucinating. 4-5 bars in I knew it was a Katie the Pest track I hadn’t heard. And I was thrilled.
See that Flattr button on the right hand side? As of this writing, there wasn’t a float:right option in the Flattr WordPress Plugin settings. However, the authors of the plugin were nice enough to wrap the button in its own CSS class.
/* Flattr Button */
width: 55px; //110 for compact, 55px for normal (big) version
margin-right: 20px; //change according to needs
I recommend putting it in the “Global Elements” section, or right around line 330 in the TwentyTen style.css. The proper way to do this is probably using a child theme, something I may explore after I finish customizing this theme to suit my purposes completely.
