I have been continuing work on the blog’s structure.
At this point I am content with the idea that, as I add previously written material (articles) to pages on the blog, I will also create a post that links to that newly added article. In that way future visitors will be able to search the blog posts and be directed to page articles.
I have also continued work on the blog’s appearance; color, font, various widgets – such as the newly added picture widget. This work has even led me to edit the style-sheet that controls the overall layout – adding things like the divider lines between posts, changing fonts, and the like. I also added an Avatar Plug-In today, Simple-Local Avatar. Users can now upload their own avatar image in their profile settings. The system will generally handle sizing and cropping, though users should try to upload smaller images in roughly square formats.
So far, so good.
