On a roll.

The more I use Textpattern the more I like it. With the different types of content I want to manage, I needed a system that was worked as a content management system, as much as a publishing tool. I’m even warming up to Textile. I am most seriously thrilled that I’ve learned how to create a list of items that are not links (“Blooming” under “Links & Lists”).

I cleared up a few hiccups today related to the “sticky” articles. It helped if I made them custom articles instead of plain articles. Naturally I’m spending way too much time fine-tuning.

Next step is to get the archive/directory going. Who cares about “About”? Then it’s on to setting up additional sections and moving in legacy content.

In other news I have taken on the Herculean task of cleaning up my room. It’s in such a state that I can’t find anything and that’s pretty bad. The method is to completely clear a section at a time. Sort through everything and put it back where it belongs … or throw it out or give it to Goodwill.

Can someone explain to me why I have a 9mm bullet on my desk?

  1. I love the new look. It’s very clean and easy to read. Now I want to redo mine (again).
