Since my Drupal installation issues on Yahoo SBWH are still unresolved, I decided to install Drupal on my Windows-XP laptop so that I can explore some potential uses in the meantime. I had to install Apache, PHP and MySql and test them out first. That was fairly straightforward. Then I installed Drupal-6.2. The installation itself went . . . → Read More: Running Drupal On Windows-XP

There has been a lot of recent discussion on how the PHP directive register_globals can cause security issues if enabled, and how this is causing Drupal installation issues for Yahoo! SB Web Hosting users. Browsing through the Yahoo! SBWH’s PHP documentation, I came across this Q&A:

Q: Does Yahoo! support the register_globals directive?

WordPress Themes – The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

There are thousands of WordPress themes that you can download and use. Most of them are really very cool. There is a wide range of choices based on number of columns, colors, fixed or fluid width, with or without images, widget ready or not, and so on.

After trying more than a dozen over the last couple . . . → Read More: WordPress Themes – The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

Setting Up WordPress Talian 1.0 Theme

Now that I had my blog pretty much functional, I wanted to explore some of the available themes. I was looking for something with a predominantly white background, three columns and widget ready so that I could customize it quickly and add features later on as needed.

Large selection of themes

I spent a couple of hours looking at the large collection at the WordPress ThemeViewer. It has a really nice sorting feature that lets you search based on number of columns, color, widget-readiness, and other attributes. Most of the themes are quite artistically designed, and targeted at different kinds of blogging needs — personal blogs, professional websites, newsletters, and so on. I have been using xmark-101 for about a week, and liked its very practical design. But since I wanted to try and place some AdSense blocks, I figured a theme with 3 columns would give me more flexibility.

Most liked

The ones that I liked the most were blue-zinfandel-10, intensive-01, oldschool-10, tiga-06 and talian-10. I tried all these, and found that oldschool-10 and talian-10 were the ones that really suited my needs, and between these two, I liked the softer color theme of the latter. So I decided to use talian-10, and went about customizing it.
