Site appearance

April 10, 2008

Yikes, what has Word Press done to the dashboard? I’m missing about half the options I had before. Now I may have to relearn everything I had started learning! I wonder if Edublogs has done the same thing… which would result in rewriting an entire section of my book. At first glance I’m not convinced this new look will be better… What have you discovered about the new design of Word Press? Any tips or wonderful discoveries?

RSS feeds (again)

April 2, 2008

I’m not convinced RSS stands for “really simple syndication,” except that some sites like Blogger have it built in and all I had to do was go to Google Reader and subscribe to a few blogs. I’m not sure how to research the other, imbedding RSS feeds within a blog, but with comment moderation I may not need it. I’ve also given up on trying to figure out how to use templates other than those offered by the hosting blog platform. I can find more than one template I like, so I don’t want to take the time to go out to the Internet to search for others. It wouldn’t hurt to put some links in the book for those who do want something else, though. The people who might take the time to research and use other templates might be the same people who already know more than I do, and might not be reading the book anyway.
