I am going to go mad shortly.

I have spent much of today up to my elbows in messy code, trying to widgetize perfectly nice but perfectly useless blog templates. It just makes sense. All WordPress templates should at least have the option there to run with widgets, they make life a whole lot easier. They shouldn’t be put up for download unless this is the case.

Clearly I have not succeeded, the actual code you have to add isn’t all that much, but then it screws with your design and however much tweaking goes on in the CSS it wont budge.

As for what I’m having a stab at redesigning… well the Advco8 site needs something new and it’s current template is also unwidgetized.

Why not just go for a standard template? Well I do my best to find one that I like but there always issues with font size, random images, headers, colours, positioning… so however close you get there is more that must be changed.

I should just properly teach myself how to make them from scratch.

To further the word on the street, there is a new Australian Vineyard Worship Website.
There a few minor little technical issues, but design is nice and the idea and content looks great!

Di’s blog Shared Worship will be moving across there some time in the next little while.

Interesting how fast the world seems to go by. I found this through Say No to Crack this morning and thought I’d have a go at seeing if I could get YouTube to co-operate. It’s stunning stuff, just a pity it’s spoiled by the misspelt ‘piece’ at the end.

Listen, O heavens, and I will speak;
hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.

Let my teaching fall like rain
and my words descend like dew,
like showers on new grass,
like abundant rain on tender plants.

I will proclaim the name of the LORD.
Oh, praise the greatness of our God!

He is the Rock, his works are perfect,
and all his ways are just.
A faithful God who does no wrong,
upright and just is he.

-Deut 32:1-4
