23 November 2007 — Tinkering

I’ve got an itch that needs scratching, and a little time to scratch it.

I’m going to make an attempt to move the traditional foldedspace theme for Movable Type over to WordPress. This could be a pain-filled process. And things around here may look broken for a while.

Update: Not bad! Not bad! Yes, I know that many things are broken. But that’s okay. This is a tremendous first attempt, don’t you think? And it only took an hour. Now let’s see if I can perform the necessary repairs in less than three hours…

Update #2: Okay, folks. Everything seems to be working, and in only three hours total! If you notice anything that doesn’t work, please let me know. I know that the flotch is gone, as is the calendar. I’ll try to bring those back. I also know that there’s no good way to access the archives. John Bodoni has graciously offered to help me recover the old foldedspace archives, all the way back to 2001. When we’ve accomplished that, I’ll bring the entire archive system back online. But for now, you may rejoice:

The old foldedspace Movable Type template has made a smooth transition to WordPress!

Congratulations!

I am starting to be convinced that WordPress can do anything. In a ‘clean my house, organize my messy desk area, and bring peace and stability to my life’ kind of anything, in fact.

Adding the calendar back is as simple as php get_calendar() added to the sidebar.
You can then style it to match, as you see fit.

Awesome. Thanks, Will. Just that simple call is almost perfect. I want the dates with entries to be bolded, but I’ll bet a single line of CSS can take care of that…

Good stuff!
Maybe not a single line, but certainly a few. Just stick the calendar into its own div and then style the links bold. At least, I would guess that would handle it. There may even be a built in calendar class.
