Things do Go Better with Coke, er… Wordpress
Just a quick note on how things are progressing with my new Wordpress theme.
I don’t know if it’s just me but I’m finding this easier than when I was switching over to the New Blogger. Blogger uses some unconventional coding, whereas Wordpress seems more straightforward to me. I also thought I was going to have become a PHP guru to accomplish this but so far it hasn’t been necessary.
For example, I just implemented my logo into my header. There is a plethora of support out there and it was easy to find the section of code in the header file that I needed. Then it was just a matter of copying and pasting my existing Blogger code, and with a bit of fiddling … ouila — there it is!
The same goes for my favicon. Not only was it easier to implement BUT it works even better than it did with Blogger, AND the page also loads so much faster now. Bonus!
AND did I mention that things like making the post page permalinks smarter is also much easier with Wordpress? In Blogger you had to write lines and lines of code, but in Wordpress it’s almost automatic. Sweet!
Funny, but I thought this Wordpress thing was going to be hard! Of course, it wouldn’t hurt to learn PHP because it truly lends some magic to Wordpress, and with a little elbow grease and know-how it can turn your blog into a Content Management System.
COOL! It seems that things really do go better with Wordpress.
