Made by Me

So I was actually able to code my own WP layout. It didn’t even take long – maybe a full day’s work. The hardest part was graphics!!

I have no idea how to use PSP anymore – and I’m still using PSP7. When I looked at newer versions, I noticed that Corel bought out Jasc, and I never liked Corel Draw in the first place, so my other option was to look at new Adobe products. I never actually got the hang of Adobe PS, but I’d much rather learn how to use it than Corel Draw. The sad thing is the fact that the new Adobe CS4 or CS5 or whatever costs an arm and a leg! So I think I’ll just stick with PSP7 for now.

Above is a screenshot of my crappy new layout. Maybe I’ll put it up in the next day or two.

Curious…

Out of curiosity (and because I wanna do it too), does anyone out there reading this know how to make blog titles in WP come out as images (so you can use font that not all visitors may have)? Does that make sense? In other words, is it possible to code a WP theme such that I can make my titles come out like the following (as an image):

I’ve seen it done… And I’m just not sure if: a) it’s codeable; b) it requires some kind of plugin; or c) the author just creates a new title image for each blog entry. Maybe the next time I stumble onto such a site I should just email the WM.

Mobile friendly?

Ok, I messed up. I’ve activated a mobile app on WordPress that’s meant for viewing the site with mobile devices. However, when I was looking at my site, there are a few glitches. I don’t know if anyone else is having the same problems and seeing the same thing I’m seeing. Email me and let me know.

Asides from that, I’m looking into creating my own WordPress layout. I’ve got the idea in my head, and I just basically need the image and the ability to code a layout. Don’t know how long that’s gonna take because I’m barely on my laptop. I go on randomly, and it’s usually only to watch True Blood and Weeds.

I’ve also come to realize that August is only a week away… *gulp*

Welcome!

Hey.. welcome to the new designerskin.net! I can’t wait to blog again! Most of the site is done. There may be a few things to fix here and there. But this is pretty much it!
