An Approach To Microblogging

Posted on January 2011 at about 5:44 AM by hwa

As you can see we have new theme here, a very narrow single column with the sidebar moved to the bottom.

With this new theme, it’s actually an effort of moving towards Microblogging, as you all know I’m not very active in updating my blog, might as well just do it through microblog, where everything is simple and hopefully, only one line.

There are still a few things that need to be tweaked, one for example is that blogs generated by tweets, the title should be removed, as there are no point for a title if the post is from a tweet.

Regardless, we’ll see if this will encourage me to update blog more frequent or not, hopefully yes. :)

New Theme, New Beginning!

Posted on October 2010 at about 4:56 AM by hwa

It’s been quite some time since the last time I updated my blog, sorry about that. Anyway, as you can see today we have a brand new theme up and running! :)

The theme was inspired from My Envision 1.2 by Tatoon, but was heavily modified and CSS was rebuild from scratch.

I’m still testing out the theme though, so if you found any bugs or malfunctioning of the theme, please do contact me.

I hope you guys like the theme, feel free to voice out what you think about the theme.

hwa2u.com Is Now XHTML 1.0 Strict!!

Posted on November 2006 at about 2:52 AM by hwa

While developing my new theme, one of my target is to achieve XHTML 1.0 Strict validation, at first i thought it won’t be that easy because it’s not only the templates i need to validate, but the plugins as well, so i guess it won’t be an easy job.

However i still manage to fix everything then pass the XHTML 1.0 validation, and now i’m happy with it. :) but on second thought it’s not that hard to reach XHTML 1.0 Strict validation, all you have to do is just follow the rules right and you won’t go wrong.

There are a few thing that i learned while developing this theme, some WordPress tricks and valid XHTML stuff, will share them out within this few days, but for now, please let me take a break first. :)

hwa2u.com New Theme: Roses Are Red

Posted on November 2006 at about 12:58 AM by hwa

Introducing the latest theme for hwa2u.com, “Roses Are Red”, released on 11th November 2006, a very good figure of date and also to remember a very unhappy incident happened exactly a month ago, which is also the reason why i choose this theme colour mostly black and white.

I name this theme as “Roses Are Red” is because during the design stage of the layout, the only color that other than black and white is red, which is the rose, and i was going to put a few more roses, but the plan changed half way because i couldn’t find other better place to put the rose, and now there is only one rose in this theme, lame huh? :lol:

This is actually the first WordPress theme i created so i hope you will like it, and i really hope that you will tell me what you think of this theme, and if you found any bugs or strange behavior of this theme, such as misalignment or anything, either by send me an email or post a comment here, thanks you very much. :)

PS: The rose is for her, hope she likes it.

New Theme Coming Soon!!

Posted on November 2006 at about 3:16 PM by hwa

This few days i had been busy designing my new WordPress theme, and no time for blogging, sorry about that, for now the theme should finish by nearly 80%, only left a few minor templates and some tweaks.

Actually i started to design the new theme since end of last October, but i’m not very good in designing so it took times, and i’m learning the WordPress theme system as well, however i’m very happy in doing this. :)

This is my first attempt in creating WordPress theme so please don’t expect too much from it, hopefully by this few days the theme will be finish. :)

AdSense Between WordPress Post

Posted on October 2006 at about 10:50 PM by hwa

Few days ago a friend of mine asked me how to insert Google AdSense in between posts in the main page, too bad that she is using Blogger and i’m not familiar with it.

Anyway this is how i do it in WordPress, it’s very easy actually, all you have to do is to insert the following code into The Loop:

  1. < ?php
  2. $gcount++; // google post counter
  3.                
  4. if ($gadv < 3) { // how many ads to display?
  5.   if ($gcount%2 == 0) { // display ad after how many post?
  6.     $gadv++; // count number of adv
  7.     print 'Your Google AdSense Code Here';
  8.   }
  9. }
  10. ?>

Don’t forget to insert your own Google AdSense code, and you can put the above code anywhere in your “single.php” as long as it’s in between the line:

  1. < ?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

and

  1. < ?php endwhile; ?>

Which is The Loop that i mentioned earlier.

You may want to change the parameter to suit your need, there are only two parameters you can set, first one is:

For the total number of AdSense display in your home page, remember that Google only allow a maximum number of three AdSense displayed in the same page.

The second parameter would be:

  1. $gcount

This one is to set your AdSense to display after the specific amount of post, the default setting is to display AdSense every two post.

WordPress Merdeka Theme

Posted on October 2006 at about 7:56 PM by hwa

A WordPress theme by ikram_zidane, the “Merdeka” theme, a one panel white colored theme, very clean design, the navigation is hidden on top and will show up when you click the “Navigation” button, brilliant idea!

Merdeka in Bahasa Malaysia is mean freedom, ikram_zidane didn’t mention what’s the reason he name this theme but most probably is to celebrate Malaysia’s independent day, which is on 31th August. :)

It’s a very impressive work done by a boy just 16 years old (2006), added that he is from Malaysia (go go Malaysia boleh!! :P), you can have a look at the demo at here.

Congratulation i would say to ikram_zidane, keep up the good work!! ;)
