Tonight, despite the lingering dizziness from Saturday’s pain medication…
… through the woods …
CSS? Div this? ID that? sweep it all aside, I go back and wrestle with html.
… face to the sun …
I worked out how to line up the social media icons in the text widget in my sidebar, without messing (yet) with Child Themes.
(Social media icons are courtesy of the Responsive Theme where they normally, and still do, appear in the footer)
At least, I thought it was an achievement (turning a vertical ul into a horizontal one); but maybe I could simply have placed them there side by side, considering I was handcoding anyway? And yes that means that if/when I add others as they become available I will need to hand-alter the widget 🙂
In any case, I achieved what I wanted 🙂
Not only that, but I’ve (hopefully, all going well,) puzzled my way through the details of the WP to Twitter plugin so that I can autopost this blog to my secondary Twitter account. This involved setting up a Twitter developer account and finding my bit.ly API. I’d have gone for su.pr because it has one less character but already had a bit.ly account of which I had not yet made full use.
I could tie this in to the whole INF2506 learning thing, by associating it with the discussions hither and yon about tying social media accounts together or the value of coding skills … but honestly, I learned that before this subject too. And right now feels too glorious to go chasing up references.
