Well my domain has finally been transferred and now I have to start rebuilding my site from scratch. I’ve worked out how to skin it noooo problem, but do you think I can work out how to make a page!?!
Does anyone know how to make a page using Joomla? I’ve gone thru all the tutorials step by step complete with screen shots and videos and the page gets made but when you hit on the menu item, it goes to “page under construction”. It’s hurting my head 😦
The templates are all gross and I don’t know enough about CSS to take out the bits I don’t like and replace it with the bits I do like. I can find the offending bits in the CSS I want to change, but I can’t work out what to stick in it’s place. Like I want to take a picture out of a header and insert my own, but the CSS has a link to a picture file and I don’t know how to make my own link to a picture file because it’s not written as a normal picture link like http://www.blahblahah.png like you’d have for an image or a banner on a website.
I want to use one of these skins but I don’t think I can market Intergalactical Princess because I’m not sure if people have the ridiculous sense of humour like I do to get it:
or I could be a superhero!
I went and met a bunch of ladies on Friday from Queensland (10+) and they are all STUNNING! Not only are they physically gorgeous with not a hair out of place, but they are smart and funny and warm people. I feel more like an out of place alien than before. I have never had and will never have their charm or grace or be the fun in life. I’m definately not of this planet. I wish I could be them because dead set they are just the bees knees. If i ever read a bad review of a QLD girl, I’m going to go pffft. LIES ALL LIES because I simply can’t see how they are anything but amazing people – no cynicism or all that weird stuff I feed off and being serious all the time. They are AMAZING and I felt like such a fraud being in their precense. Like I’m less than them in the most important living life ways. They all kissed and hugged me hello and made me feel so welcome – I’ve NEVER seen anything like it before. Just really nice, wonderful people.
I also don’t know how to insert the module boxes in particular places on the site – eeew confusing.
In other news, my wiki has bugged out BIG TIME and is now demanding people log in before they can access the site 😦 So after I build the website, I have to migrate the wiki, re-write it and pay for an upgrade.
In good news… my email is now working again! YEAAAAy so you can once again get me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Took me forever to work out what went wrong with that when I ported it!
Sooo anyhooooo, please bare with me. I think in another 24 hours I should have worked it all out (my website anyway). Either that or I’ll dump Joomla and go with Droople (Is that how you spell it?). Miss Nikki tells me Droople is way better and easier and prettier than Joomla and I trust her like no-one else on the planet (besides my mum of course because she’s lovely 🙂 )
Anyhooo back to breaking stuff!
ps. I just wanted to say a HUGE thankyou to the lovely people who leave comments on my blog. I read them all and I always like to reply when I’m in a lovely headspace which can mean I leave it, the next drama happens or thing breaks so it gets hard to come back to it. I do read every single one though and when it pops up in my email box, I LOVE going and reading it and having a smiley break in my day. Comments are like being on a forum but not gross! Like a forum of 5 years ago when people were smart and witty and put thought into what they were saying. Your comments mean the world to me and really do make a difference to my day 🙂
