Hey!! Upgrade to Wordpress!

Of Mountains & Printing Presses

Very cool!

You see, the whole idea of “blocks” (“divs” in coder speak) is that they “degrade gracefully” in older or smaller browsers (such as, your mobile phone).  Ingenious!   Why didn’t I think of this?

  Here I was, breaking my head over how to make P’kaboo, a neat website on a wide screen, nicer for mini screens such as mobiles.  I’ve already made it “squishable” – so you see a teeensy weensy little drop-down menu if you (with pixie fingertips) click on the microscopic little button saying “Submit manuscript” (if you could find the button in the first place, and read it).  But that was exactly the problem.  I didn’t really want the words to shrink to point-size 0.1.  I wanted them to stay legible and clickable (with a clumsy index finger on mobile phones, think Shrek), retain their functionality without the site losing its beauty.  (It has been complimented on its beauty, quite a bit.)

This sorts it!  How amazingly convenient!

Haha – and the feature is still in beta. Found the glitch.

Once you press “publish”, the wordpress text paragraphs stick seamlessly onto each other. I had to go into the html and manually insert line breaks. Okay, peeps, it’s a really nice idea but not yet fully matured. I’m sure they’ll fix this little glitch the second they see the first beta-tests. (That’s us, trying out the new editor.)

    Eh? I’ve NEVER had to do this, and I have launched half-a-dozen WordPress sites.
