Still a work in progress as I keep on striving to hack s9y without having the necessary skills to do so.
Anyway; I've been very happy with how customizable the software is, and how helpful people have been on these boards when I need help.
Here is what I've managed so far.
I'll keep hanging about and asking silly questions.
Wow, you blog really looks nifty and unique. I love the look of it, great!
WOW, Martin! your blog looks great! I was wondering if you made the image of the old man on top of your blog? It looks great! Also great use of colors. what version of serendipity are you using? Thanks,
Hey Thomas. The old guy was made first as a 3D-character sketch, because I can't draw perspective for shit. Later I added the rest of the image in illustrator and put on the gradients and cleaned it up in Photoshop.
I am using a slightly hacked version on the 0.8 snapshot.
Thanks for your comments. I feel a redesign is close by as I just discovered how badly IE on WIN will eat my poor design.
That's the same plugin, yeah. What I did to get it in english was to open the plugin.php file and switch the german phrase for an english one. I suppose I could have translated the whole thing, but my german is really only so-so.
In the same manner I also opened the english language file to get the "Get Fed" header over the RSS-feeds instead of whatever was the original header.
I'd love to see some sort of convention in writing plugins where certain items were always optional so I didn't have to dig around in the different files to find these things. On the other hand I get more familiar with PHP this way.
I think I'm going to give this a try. The worst thing I can do is trash this plugin, and if that happens I'll just delete it and get another.
Don't know a single thing about php though. Didn't really start to learn html until about eight months ago. I don't use any of this stuff for work; I've been teaching myself because I like to tinker around with it and see what I can do.
If I totally fail to get the plugin edited, I was wondering if you'd be willing to share your edit?
