More Trouble

Hellboy ActionWhile I get excited when I figure out how to do something new on the computer, that excitement is usually overridden by all the problems created by that same new development.

Here is what I got right.

  1. Updated version of Wordpress (from 2.0.1 to 2.5.1).

  2. New theme with widgets.

  3. Changed header image and colors (not finished yet).

  4. Added the most recent comments section to the sidebar.

Here's what isn't working.

  1. When I get a new commenter, I have no way to approve them...error of some kind. (I think I found a temporary fix: I think I can approve comments remotely through email.)

  2. My sidebar links/pages are in the wrong order and don't seem to have the flexibility I thought they would, of course it is better than what I was doing before which was...experimentally cutting and pasting php code. (I put "A1" in front "Classes & Videos" so that it would come before "Blogroll" in alphabetical order...silly, I know.)

  3. I pretty sure I messed up the wp-config.php file but most stuff seems to be working.

  4. My sidebar issues may be caused by my failure to delete certain files. I only found out about this through troubleshooting, so now I'm wondering if I should start over.

These errors and imperfections are probably things I can live with until I can find someone to help me. Hellboy Love Wordpress Camp in San Francisco Aug 16th?

All this took way more time than it should have, but at least I got to see Hellboy 1 and 2 this weekend. Fun stuff. Mix Martial Arts watchers will notice the choreography style and moves used in the Hellboy 2 Troll Market Scene are all taken from inside the MMA Cage. That scene ends with a "ground and pound." La-la-la.
