I began with the work on a new WordPress theme for my homepage from scratch today. I use the bootstrap-mini styles as basis for my new theme and will add my own styles within a seperate styles.css file. The next steps are the creation of a header and footer template as well as a template for the sidebar. I’ll work on this during the next week in my spare time.
Worked Again On A WordPress Site
I worked on the further customization of a wordpress site that I created for an volunteer organisation some month ago. I got the request for an area for links to other websites. I found a plugin which in my opinion satisfy the needs of the organisation. It’s the WordPress plugin ‘Friends Link’. It had enough slots for websites to link to and made it easy to customize the links. The plugin is free software published under the GPL version 2.
Switched A New WordPress Site Live
I worked with a small team on a WordPress website project for some month. We finished the site during the last weeks and decided to replace the old website with this new WordPress site today. Because the new website lives in a subdirectory of the webspace I had to make some edits inside the WordPress admin backend (e.g. changing some general URLs) and fix some hard coded links. This took some effort but in the end I managed to get the site live.
This project is technically done yet. I’m looking forward to some further projects using FOSS software to support the work of this organization of volunteers.
Busy Days And Volunteer Work With WordPress
I’m currently busy with my payed day work and thus have only very small ressources for voluteer work. I met with some friends today to work on a new WordPress site. We finished some tasks and talked about the future steps and the lauch of the site. We also launched a NextCloud instance and I showed a bit of the features to my friends.
Because I’ll on another meeting they will show the site and the NextCloud instance to the whole group of local volunteers during the next weekend.
Some Fun With WordPress Today
Worked on a new WordPress site and bot some header errors. Tried to reset PW but it crashed. Seemed its difficult vor impossible to usw the database to set a new password with a md5-hash. Need more investigation ;-(
Installed WordPress On A Small PC
I worked further on the small pc with an wireless access point and added a wordpress instance. I exported the work, I already did on my notebook and imported it into the database on the small pc. I configured wordpress to point to the imported database. I copied also the wordpress theme over and installed a missing event calendar plugin. There is only one missing point. I had to copy the content from the uploads directory too. That’s on my todo.
Working With WordPress Theming
I currently looking into the theme development of WordPress. I already started with the work on a first version of a theme proposal for a local organisation in Duisburg. I’ll continue this work for the next weeks and it will consume a lot of my spare time.
Further Work With Theming
I worked a bit further on the WordPress theme for a local organisation and got some nice pictures for the header of the site. I cropped them a bit with Gimp and combined them together with the logo in a new banner. We have some great places in Duisburg, like the ‚Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord‘ (an former ironwork with a great light show) (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landschaftspark_Duisburg-Nord), Tiger and Turtle (a Magic Moutan / a walkable sculpture on top of a hill) (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiger_and_Turtle_%E2%80%93_Magic_Mountain) and the ‚Innenhafen‘ (a former part of the inner harbor) (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Innenhafen_Duisburg).
It’s always easy and fun to work with free software tools on nice pictures 😉
