Okay, now the Blogroll should work. Apparently the problem was, WordPress doesn’t like people using HTML, or doesn’t trust people to use HTML, and it kept adding extraneous code every time I saved it.
Regarding the fonts: apparently there’s nothing to be done about the grey default text; but I was able to replace the annoying-to-read Grasshopper Green text with red, which shows up nice and sharp and easy on the eyes.
They allow over a hundred different font types, most of them with a dozen size options and many style options (regular, bold, italic), but very few color options unless you want to create your own palette.
I should add that a lot of people are contacting me offering help and advice, and it’s all appreciated; but I can’t get back to everybody on a timely basis, and for that I apologize.
Still on the to-do list:
Switch to “newest comments appear first”? Apparently not a popular notion
Restore the comicsidontunderstand.com address
Find a better template Maybe I have; thoughts, anybody?
Set up an RSS feed
Set up blogroll Figure out why WordPress isn’t letting me set up a blogroll Okay, so the blogroll template is refusing to take input; but they will allow me to work old-school using HTML links. Which is fine, since HTML is where my understanding of web design peaked anyway. Not quite as “done” as I’d thought — but I know how to get it working now.
Bring the “expanded comments” widget home
Make the address box show the comicsidontunderstand.com address
Get a consensus on the “like” buttonsLook into acquiring cidu.us
Find out whether anybody hates the Grasshopper Green text as much as I do
Anything I’m forgetting?
