getting there slowly...

After another evening's bashing away at various bits of the configuration, I think I've just about managed to get this version of the blog to look like the old one. [Note: only one carriage return after this paragraph.]
(Although I do wonder whether I should have broken new grounds with a new design, I've concluded that 'one step at a time' is probably the best way of getting this done). [Note: two carriage return after this one and subsequent paragraphs.]

So, what's still bothering me, and will therefore need to be sorted on my next evening of tapping at the keyboard?

  • I don't seem to have managed to get comments to work. I'll try it one more time on this entry

  • There seems to be loads of whitespace above and beneath each line - I haven't been able to find the bit of the cascading style sheet that deals with this, yet.

  • The archived entry seems to have the old template attached to it - I would have thought the 'rebuild site' would have sorted this, but it doesn't seem to be the case.

  • The last stage is to import the contents of the bblog database into this one. And make the system re-render all the pages. Last, but definitely not the most trivial of bits to do.

At least the page loads that much more quickly, though - most impressive. I think I'll shop here again (in spite of the difficulties!).
