I now have some images and have set categories up too. Once I have my tags/archive pages done, I will be adding a tag cloud onto the sidebar. The amount of things to do within code is mounting up, so my next job will be to fix these of course.
I’m not happy with the hr CSS look at the moment (that’s the little bar above and below the images. As well as the placement of the title, OR the information regarding data/time/author, so these will be fixed too.
Most of the effects on this site will be done via functions.php rather than plugins – as this is a bespoke site that is simply using WordPress as the Content Management, but if there is a widget that does the job better, then I will be using those.
For those that are seeing this in the future: here is the image, of course, photoshopped.
