A Random Pattern

Rubric Theme – changes and more changes

List of what’s fixed, what needs to be fixed, and other changes to my blog:


  • Sidebar now displays (mostly) as intended, with each section / widget displaying in it’s own floating white box.
  • Sidebar shows up on single (post) pages.
  • Unfortunately, I think that’s it. :( But I *felt* productive!

Need to be fixed or added (please add to this list in the comments!):

  • Make sure Sidebar doesn’t extend past/over footer.
  • Next / previous hyperlinks on individual pages too close to header title.
  • Better integrated “pages” functionality (in header?).
  • rotating header capability.
  • more code cleanup, such as pulling out the sidenote javascript and extra images from the package.
  • Figure out how/if to have a different Sidebar (shorter, simpler?) for single post pages.

Other changes:

  • I created a cool widget, see it at the bottom of my sidebar. It has links to subscribe to my blog, and to explain what “subscribe to my blog” even means. :) It’s also got a way to get my new posts in your email, automagically! Yay for magic internet stuff!  (This was partially motivated by a reminder of a post from Robert Scoble, whose posts I keep running into lately.)
  • In order to make the cool stuff above happen, I cleaned up my feeds and autodirecting for my feeds. If you subscribed to this blog before tonight – No Worries! It will automagically forward you to the feed I want you to use (grin) so I can count how many people are (not) reading my blog. This means you don’t have to do anything! But I’m still excited about it…

I think that’s it, at least that’s all I can remember.  If the blog doesn’t look or work much differently as far as you notice, that should mean I’m doing a good job.  And if something’s broken, please tell me.  I’ll fix it if I can.
