WordPress, CSS and Cross Browser Display

March 6th, 2009

Well yesterday I finally was satisfied enough with the updated version of my site to upload.  Of course, the result was not the nice and easy transfer that I was expecting since I decided to transfer my site to using WordPress as a CMS. All archived blog images broke, none of my links transferred, permalinks weren’t working; it was just an irritating time sink.

Obviously there is still work to do, such as adding my portfolio pieces, but what became most irritating was the fact that Safari was ignoring font-family, background, well generally everything on the body styling, when it appeared quite fine in Firefox, and Opera.

Site Update

February 28th, 2009

I created this site over two years ago when I graduated from Marietta College as an undergrad with passable web knowledge.  Due to my personal explorations regarding HTML, CSS and PHP, I have come to discover that my knowledge far outstrips what my site demonstrates. So in the next few weeks I will be redesigning and restructuring my site.

Don’t be alarmed if the next time you come here things look a bit different.
