Fauna theme at WP.com

January 3, 2006

Been scouting this theme for a few weeks, just noticed it was added to wordpress.com. Nice opportunity to try it out.


may be behind the curve here at wp.com, but just noticed the theme options for the Regulus theme. Very Nice! Not the complete control of look that some want, but gives a very nice array of options. If all themes that are added offer this kind of flexibility, then things are definitely going in the right direction.

WP.com feature request

November 28, 2005

I’m sure this could go in the feedback in the ol’ dashboard, but hey, then what would I have to blog about at wp.com? I’d really like to be able to replace the feeds on the dashboard, with other wp.com blogs of my choosing. With the growth of WP, the recent posts is all but moot to me, as I don’t speak the myriad of foreign languages that the posts come up in. Maybe, just maybe, one will be in English when I pop over, and generally it’s a “my first post”, post. Whee! Heck, the most popular posts seem to be a space waster most of the time, especially now that the roving reports from New Orleans are gone, that is, unless the flock sucks guys are dropping jokes, er, commentary on all that is web 2.0.

I was poking around my wp.com site, and clicked on the contact page, but no contact form was there. I coulda swore that when I first created it, there was one. Anyone else remember that?

I’ve deleted the page, since there was nothing showing up.

***EDIT*** I just went to the write page, and noticed that there isn’t even an option to choose a different template. Wonder why that is. So no links pages if a theme has a links template, etc. Hmm….

New Themes

November 25, 2005

Looks like enough bugs have been worked out, and Matt’s gotten enough free time, that he’s adding new themes (finally) to wordpress.com Presentation. He’s soliciting suggestions and links for more themes (though his blog is coming up as private right now, gotta love RSS), now the wonder when will some customization be available? At least a custom .css file…
Nice choice in additions, some new blood, so to speak. Maybe I’ll get my winter theme done this weekend and offer it up.

Add to Blogroll Feature

November 9, 2005

Ok, so when I attempt to edit a post, the WYSIWYG editor wants to erase what I had previously written. So my original post has been dropped, and my subsequent post was about to as well. The orginal post had to to with a suggestion I had on Matt’s wp.com blog when he announced the admin bar, that it would be nice to incorporate the “link this” bookmarklet into the admin bar. Lo and behold, we now have “Add to Blogroll”, albeit, it’s automatic, so there’s not an option to choose a category. Haven’t played around with it much, but it works.

Been busy with life, but checking in at WP.com, I see one can now import from their blogger.com blog.  Now to add the abilitity to import a wordpress blog to wp.com…
