From html to WordPress
# April 17, 2009 at 10:18 am
After years of trying to teach myself html and xhtml (very poorly) I finally decided to try to move everything to wordpress to give myself an easier life and allow me to get on with the design side of things (what I like doing the best).
For a complete non blogger like me WordPress looked a little daunting but after finding out a mate does all his websites in wordpress I finally plucked up the courage to do something about it.
I intend to take my little sites over to wordpress.
Hopefully what I learn in one will be very transferable to all the others in the future.
It looks like a huge mountain to climb at the moment but thanks to the video posts by Chris I have finally plucked up the courage to do it (wish me luck).
Please excuse any stupid sounding questions I may ask on here. I am a WordPress virgin at the moment.
To start with can anyone tell me what are the best, most popular and easiest to understand galleries viewers on the market at the moment.
I use thickbox at the moment on my design site. Are there better ones out there for image viewing?
All the best

Hi All, Back aagain with another ‘stupid’ question.
I have been reading through ‘Complete wordpress’ Which has a chapter on RSS feeds and some associated code to make ‘readers’ etc.
I am sure this is very easy to understand once you get the knack but I am confusing the heck out of myself.
Does anyone have an easy tutorial or explanation to break down the requirements to make an RSS feed and reader.
A sot of a ‘you need this in here’ and @this in here’ sort of guide. Sorry for the stupid sounding question but I am just trying to get my head round it all.

Not really sure what you mean :?
If you are using WordPress then you already have an RSS feed, just get a feedburner account at Google to maximise its potential.
Why would you want to make a feed reader? There are literally hundreds of free ones for all platforms readily available.# May 8, 2009 at 3:10 am
Cheers for the info.
Right another quick one for everyone:
Well I am having fun with galleries. Tried to download 3 good looking ones but it seems you need a degree in Astro Physics to get images to display like on the individual demo sites pages.
Going to try and find some more if I can.
Have you found any good (easy to use)ones.
Have looked at:
Featured content gallery
Would like a simple click to view image and info. (either on page or via a thickbox style thing).
All the best
