feeds

Thursday, June 28th, 2007

Somehow WPMU messes up the RSS 2.0-Feeds. Since they are the standard feeds for the site, the result is quite messy. I didn’t find out where the error stems from, but I have a remedy.

  1. Got to feedburner and get an account.
  2. Insert the URL of your blog (“http://nureinhobby.org/username”) .
  3. When you’re asked which feed to use choose “RSS 2.0″.
  4. Finish the process, remember the location of your feedburner feed and come back to your dashboard here.
  5. Activate the Plugin “Feed Locations”.
  6. Go to Manage >> Feed Locations.
  7. At RSS 2.0 insert the URL of your new feedburner feed.
  8. Save. Tell everybody the new of your feed. Done.
  9. Optional: Do the same for RSS .92, ATOM 0.3 and the comments feed.

And of course there is a new RSS 2.0 feed for this blog too.

alternating background colors

Saturday, June 23rd, 2007

What I always liked about my breakfast blog where the alternating colors of the posts on the main site. So this morning I set out to do the same for the K2-theme. I tinkered with the theme and now you too can have alternating colors.

All you have to do, is a little change in the css of the style you’re using. Simply add:

.altback1 {
padding-left: 20px !important;
padding-right: 20px !important;
background-color: #EFEFEF !important;
}

.altback-1 {
padding-left: 20px !important;
padding-right: 20px !important;
}

.altback1 blockquote {
background-color: #EFEFEF !important;
}

Then your blog will look like this. If you want something else just change the color (#EFEFEF). If you want I style all for yourself gimme a shout, I’ll upload it for you or if you’re especially trustworthyI’ll give you ftp-access to your style-directory.
