Not much has happened.
A kick up the bum
I got all excited, I made a design, and then I did about a day’s work on the CSS. And then nothing. In order to nag myself into getting more done, I have decided to launch the unfinished theme. This is it. As you can see, its a little rough round the edges.
Shamed into action
The hope is that I will actually want to have a working site, and will thus push on with, well, finishing it.

Multiple header sizes…
Are an important part of website design
Even though I never…
…use ones this small!
Things I could do
As you may realise, I’m also using this post to throw a variety of elements into the blog, so I can check I have styling for them all. I also need to display some numbered and bulleted lists, but I can’t think of a relevant list to write. So, instead…
My favourite colours:
- Golden Yellow
Least favourite books ever:

Thanks for reading! Keep nagging me to finish this!
All the WordPress haikus – moved!
I’ve been keeping track of the WordPress haikus for the last few years. So far I’ve got one for 15 releases!
Rather than updating this post every time I update them, I’ve moved it to the Projects section of this site, so you can check it there for infrequent updates.
Keep waiting for that haiku interview, but until then, keep reading All the WordPress Haikus…
New page: MarketPress Grid Plugin
I‘ve been hanging out over at the WPMU-DEV forums quite a lot over the last few months, and I decided to contribute to the community with an update of one of the plugins for MarketPress.
MarketPress is a pretty good, simple e-commerce plugin for WordPress, but it lacks a grid layout option. This plugin adds that feature.
Guest post: May Roundup at SYWP
As any of you who follow me on twitter will know, I have become a proud member of the South Yorkshire WordPress community.
One Tuesday night a month, my twitter feed becomes an irritating and alienating place for my followers, with endless repetitions of #sywp, alongside jabbering about SSL, Custom Post Types and the many amorous moods of @mkjones.
Since we are trying to publicise the community, we are hoping to make the official SYWP blog a little more lived in. As a result, I just wrote a roundup of this month’s meeting. There’s a snippet below:
This month was attended by the usual bunch of marauding geeks, with free coffee prepared and waitered by the servant hearted Kimb Jones. This nearly made up for the disappointment of Jag Gill failing to provide cake…
Anyway, there were three main talks this month (aside from the usual debates on the command line vs GUI, and on whether iPads are pointless). As ever, you can read back through the twitter stream for #sywp, and imagine you were there too.
First up was Paul Marshall, talking about his company’s experiences using Buddypress…
Join us at the next SYWP at the GIST Hub on the 2nd Tuesday of every month. More information on the community group site…
