Of Phones, Tablets, and other WordPress Woes

Code Code Code

My site currently sucks on anything that’s not a ‘traditional’ screen size as Screenfly has now made painfully clear.

As a quick fix I’m trying out WPTouch, which is a plugin for WordPress that seems to be working as a pretty decent band-aid. It’s not as pretty as I’d like, but it will do for now.

For later… well, it looks like I’m going to have to sit down and really learn how to code websites next year. I’ve already made it one of my New Year’s Resolutions, I’m just at a bit of a loss where to start, there’s a LOT that needs coding, even before I add in the mobile designs.

The Three To-Do’s

I need to design a gallery layout in which people can See Horses and filter for the horses they want to see. Filter by year, by scale, my mold, by color, etc.

I need to design a bookshelf/archive layout in which people can Read Stories… and filter for the stories they want to see. Genre, Length, Universe, Warnings, etc.

Then I need a layout for Learn Stuff, which will most likely be a combination of the other two. Lots of pictures (like the horses) and lots of reading (like the stories). *pokes rough sketches*

On a high note, I’ll be posting whatever I do design/code for free, so if there are other See Horses, Read Stories, Learn Stuff websites out there just trying to fit into a theme, they will finally find one! (On a down note, I have no idea how much maintenance work goes into themes beyond ‘here you go, try this!’ Hmmm…)

My name is Martha Bechtel and I write fantasy and science fiction stories, paint small model horses silly colors, cast resin and plaster magnets, code random code (and Wordpress plugins)... Come on in and join in the fun!
