Please bear with me, I’d hoped the transition between my old host and my new one would be smoother than this but due to unforeseen…
It’s not exactly new but I’ve finally got around to moving onto my new myfirehost.com servers and freshened it up with a new theme. I’m…
Because I love Wallace and Gromit too!
I’ve recently (just now in fact) been made aware of an adobe Photoshop plugin for wordpress theme creation straight from a psd design.
Looking through the Divine Project website and reading more about it seems to uncover a few pertinant points.
The site itself answers my initial question in its F.A.Q
What is Divine plug-in?
Divine is the program developed for those who know a bit about Photoshop and sites creation but donâ€™t want to waste their time making up a valid website on basis of popular CMS manually. Using this program you are able to easily make up a professional website and upload it promptly to the server through the embedded FTP-client.
Waste time making a valid website? Are they insinuating that valid code is unimportant? Can’t say I agree with that if that is what they mean. The plugin goes so far as to manage the entire themes’ upload and management as well.
While I’m putting together my final review of Moon OS I thought I’d talk a little about a plugin I use a lot these days. Xmarks started initially as foxmarks, a Firefox plugin for backing up your bookmarks and actually syncing them each time you add/remove links. Adding a plugin to firefox is such an easy and, importantly, quick procedure that it meant you could share your bookmarks between two places effortlessly.
That functionality continues today with Xmarks but has been improved and expanded to include other browsers.
Finally I’m nearly there with the basics of this theme. The look and feel is about right, and when I load the page I like…
So far it’s really just proof of concept, and its code is a little limited but could very easily and quickly be improved, depending on what information you actually wanted to share. The reason I’ve put the date in for now is because it’s the simplest way to show the principle involved here. The date comes from the php function of the same name in this case I used:
I’m tempted to talk a lot about this new developing application; it’s uses as well as how it could well revolutionise how the world communicates online. But I won’t the video below does that far better than I could.
Yet again I’m posting up another screenshot of my work in progress theme.
Basically, with this theme I wanted something really personal, the kind of theme you’re unlikely to find anywhere else. I also wanted to make its palette slightly ubuntuesque with oranges and browns. I think it’s coming along pretty well.
