photos, web stuff


Over two years ago I was exploring ways to integrate flickr into my website and came across a PHP script called flickrhelpr. I tried getting it to work but, in my even more limited knowledge of PHP at the time, came up empty.

As I was getting things ready to implement WordPress on my site, I started cleaning things up on the server and stumbled (back) upon the failed flickrhelpr page. Well, something changed at some point so that now the darned thing actually works (albeit with some need of cosmetic tweaking). Ironically, the script developer doesn’t seem to be supporting it now as there’s no longer any documentation on his website.

Anyways, if you’re interested in seeing what it can do

UPDATE: Well, apparently it’s not working now…but maybe it will later?

web stuff

Color me im(word)pressed!

I’ve started seeing more and more web designers using the WordPress publishing platform to create dynamic websites, to the point of calling themselves “WordPress Designers.” I can definitely see the attraction, especially for someone who is more a designer than a developer, as it provides a dynamic framework on which someone less technically inclined can build. Even with the most basic installation, WordPress offers quite a bit for the fledgling website, with plenty of room to expand if needed. For this site, I made some tweaks based on this guy’s advice, but many of his suggestions were already integrated into the theme I selected. I’m looking forward to seeing what else can be done!
