WordPress, the BEHEMOTH

WordPress has taken over practically every thought process.

Gravatars (puts a lil icon next to yr comment if ya have one)? CHECK
Embedded Gallery2 w/ all my photos from Gallery1? CHECK
Imported blogger.com entries? CHECK (except for the lack of titles :/ )
AJAX RULING IT? CHECK

I am simply amazed at the extensibility of wordpress and the creations of it’s developers. For instance:

  • I am able to place in a live search toolbar (at the top of the page) that actvely searches my archives. Woah.
  • Then I’m able to put a “live archives” into my archives (link on the top nav bar,) which makes it easy to see what and how much was posted when.
  • I’m also posting the archives in a “live format” in the grey area below.
  • Also in the grey area below, I have some images from my gallery. (random, recent, most viewed)
  • I can also post images inline from my gallery. It’s a cool feature so an author doesn’t have to remember or copy the image location. Check it out:
    IMG_0468.jpg
    …see, an image of ZoĂ« and I that links to it’s original image in the gallery.

There’s plenty more I’m working with and tweaking for the main robothouse.org site. What IS going on with that site, might you ask? Well, aside from studying the intricacies of wordpress, I’m planning with Bobby on how to deploy the site. Looks like it’ll be geared more towards fun articles and posting info about upcoming events. Less gossip, more rock. Or it might be the other way around. We’re gonna have features by various writers and artists, and also host tons of multimedia content. Everything from streaming audio and video to podcasting. I also have a 300 level group of design students from the university that are using the site as a stomping grounds for development. This should be incredibly fun.

This also means I’m going to be updating the site alot more now. Enjoy.
