CSS and php

I was so proud of my new blog. It is a WordPress.org site. It was gorgeous. At least it was gorgeous until I needed to do something with the header.php file. That evidently overrode much of what I’d done in CSS. Now it looks sort of like alphabet soup – and yes, I’m being generous.

At least I know where I went wrong. I also know how to fix it. And I now know how to generate a screen that tells people I’m working on my site and gives them a link to click to get to the old site. All in all, I’d say I’m doing very well.

I’m certain that any of this I can do, anyone else can do. I encourage you to give it a try if you’re just not happy with the way your blog looks or you want a widget that contains script. That was the motivator for me. I wanted to help the kids at One Simple Wish badly enough to go through this rigamarole at this precise moment. These foster kids are well worth the time invested in the switch.

So what is your reason for wanting more control over your blog or Web site? We want to know.
