UPDATE 7:42 p.m. 6.21.09: Thanks to Leland over at ThemeLab, I figured out my problem and there are now fully-functional widgets at the bottom of the site. Many thanks!
I’m pretty proud of this little space I carved into the World Wide Web just about a month ago. Considering I had little knowledge about HTML and even less about CSS, it’s come a long way.
A post from Emily Ingram about purchasing a domain and installing WordPress on it helped me out, and my experience working with Blogger, WordPress, College Publisher and Moveable Type made the rest of the experience a breeze. I even got my hands dirty in the site’s CSS, starting with a “minimalism” theme and building this site you see here. Some tutorials at w3schools and some frustrated Google searching helped me along the way.
But I still code at about a third grade level.
So when is started out early this afternoon to get a three-column, widgetized footer on this here Web site, I thought I’d be able to do it no problem. I was wrong. Here’s what I did:
Hey e’rybuddy! Like my 1990′s-inspired site? I built it by fucking up the style.css – hope you like it!
In my defense, technically, it worked. If you look for the widgets, hey presto, they’re at the bottom. But it wasn’t exactly what I was gunnin’ for.
So I have a favor to ask:
Does anybody have something really, really heavy they could drop on my head?
