Hi guys - I notice the new forums don't have a WordPress specific area, so I assume it's here.
I have been diving in and out of webdesign for sometime, coming here and getting amazing help. I am working on some pretty cool stuff at work, and getting thrown in the deep end a lot. I have a Wordpress site my my personal blog here:
It is going well and I am using the child theme well to adjust my own styles, however I want to learn more about WordPress, in particular themes. My little one is 10 months old now so I don't have as much time as i would like, and I was doing the thematic tutorials for building a theme but kind of lost inspiration. Is this the best way forward? One thing that bugs me is that I don;t really know how to modify the PHP generated HTMl in a site. I want to know that. I just want to get better at wordpress in general.
so can you point me in the right direction? Please take a look at my site and offer any suggestions. I just ran a HTML validation kit over my site and I have a number of errors in there.
I think on of the reasons I stopped working on themes is due to the the WordPress forums seemingly losing a lot of a support. I just found people were not responding to my posts despite going in and helping others myself, and proving background and content to my posts.
Another thing I want to learn about is driving traffic to my site. It's really just a space for me to muck around but I woudl love to get more hits. I get about 60 when I post now using facebook.
Finally, facebook, plugin will not allow me to see who recommends the page. it is called WP-Facebook Like This and I've checked the settings.
Cheers love Sitepoint.
