Well, since last writing, I’ve dug more deeply into the WordPress code and the documentation and I’ve learned a few things…..
- I’m using WordPress version 2.1
- the Theme which first took my fancy, and which I’ve been learning with, uses the functions available in WordPress 1.2
- most of the documentation applies to version 1.5 and later
That combination has cost me a few hours, to say the least. I’ve been trying adapt my theme using guidelines described for v1.5 and above and they’ve not worked with my v1.2 theme!
When, in frustration, I changed back to the theme which comes as Default with WordPress 2.1 (also known as the Kubrick theme), I found that my adaptations worked well…. but then I could not change the header!
My next question is which theme to use to move forward
- with my own site, and
- as a template I am comfortable with for future development work
A pleasant concern to have :)
