When Craig did the heavy lifting necessary to convert this site from Movable Type to WordPress with little or no notice (spammers and an overwhelmed host made the switch immediately necessary), some of the stuff that was on the sidebar of the Movable Type site did not get switched over.
I initially figured that I would simply, but ever so carefully, fool with Mr. Template to put the stuff back. I managed to add stuff — even a button — to the old site, so I thought I would be able to do it again.
So, I popped open the template and, “Holy Style Sheets, Batman!” The WordPress templates don’t look anything like those in Movable Type. I stared at the template (and the style sheet — style farookin’ sheet??? as if they were written in Sanskrit. Positively stupefying. No way I’m going anywhere near that.
Besides, it’s not a huge deal, as the site works fine. I can write stuff, and people can read it. The rest is gravy. Besides, I know that Craig, who has always graciously helped when asked, has many, many more important things to do these days to than to add non-necessary doodads to my site.
Well, another blogger has
made the reckless mistake of volunteering volunteered to fiddle with Mr. Template and put some old stuff back and maybe even add a few new bells and whistles.
As you can see, the picture of the headstock of my beloved Gibson has reappeared along with the “Mr. Blogroll” title.
More changes to Mr. Sidebar and site are in the offing. I’m positively happy-dance giddy.
The mondo-helpful blogger seeks no accolades and prefers not to be identified, but I would like to publicly express my sincere thanks for volunteering to help the Mr. Cyber-Challenged.
