Hours of Clueless Toil by Me


I spent the entire day today tweaking the look and layout of this blog. After days of learning javascript, PHP, and mySQL, I decided I would rather swallow molten solder. I put down the books and hoped I was literate enough to dig deep into the bowels of WordPress code. I was wrong.

Luckily, I’ve made some progress:

  • custom fields such as “curr_reading” and “curr_watching” now show up
  • the home page shows excerpts of posts and includes a “read more” link
  • the footer now states “Built…hours of clueless toil by David Xia”
