Theme Updates

The WordPress community gives much of itself to users who don’t always give back. I created Effercio Blue and Nanideska last year, but as of today both they are being released under GPL.

In order to get tags to display on individual posts, we’ll use the_tags. <?php the_tags(‘before’,… Continue reading Tags in WordPress 2.3

Nanideska

This coming weekend I’ll be releasing my second WordPress theme: Nanideska. Nanideska is a two-column theme based on the design I previously had here at cdharrison.com. I was thinking I had a screen capture of it somewhere, but searches through my archives on flickr didn’t yield any results.
