Backlight site Live

I took the leap of faith and with Ben's help this is working albeit not 100% as yet as there are a few irregular 404 errors but paging back and forth on the menu seems to clear them.

There is no going back now and I am so grateful for the relative ease with which Backlight allows me to create/update/review and rework than ever before in CEn.

There is nothing fancy in what I have done and I suppose that is a tad boring really  but by recreating what I had before, it gave me a benchmark to test against. As more features get added I'll experiment but I do prefer simple and clean looking pages and Backlight delivers this easily and the speed with which I can experiment is light years ahead of clunking around in LR. LR is the workhorse of  my processing so just having to use the Publisher has enabled me to think about being able to make hassle free  changes going forward.

Thanks for all the extra support so far.
Regards,
TomO

Re: Backlight site Live

Looks good, TomO. Be sure to let us know how the blogging goes, and let us know if there's anything specific you'd like to have supported in the theme. We've done testing and such, but the best way to improve a blog theme is to have people blogging on it outside of testing.

Re: Backlight site Live

Thanks Matt. I really appreciate the seamless look and feel of having WP pick up the site styling. I'll experiment a bit more. One thing I was wondering about was whether the widgets could have some selective formatting such as making the recent posts appear in a larger font for example.  I realise that the text widget with e Kodak logo needs some work by me for wrapping. Away at present but plenty of time for such thoughts.
Big , big thanks to you and Ben for pulling all this stuff together.

Re: Backlight site Live

You can target things like this with custom css. For example, the selector for a recent posts widget looks to be
.widget.widget_recent_entries.
So if you wanted to target the widget's heading:

.widget.widget_recent_entries h2 {
   color: blue;
   }

Re: Backlight site Live

Thanks Rod I'll try that out. I had a feeling Custom CSS might be an answer.
