Custom WordPress theme tutorial

Custom WordPress theme tutorial

I was looking into custom WordPress theme tutorials when a friend of mine pointed out this tutorial. It is very well written and covers the following topics:

  • Creating a Theme HTML Structure
  • Template and Directory Structure
  • The Header Template
  • The Index Template
  • The Single Post, Post Attachment, & 404 Templates
  • The Comments Template
  • The Search Template & The Page Template
  • The Archive, Author, Category & Tags Template
  • The Sidebar Template
  • Reset-Rebuild Theme CSS & Define Your Layouts

Quite complete, and definitely enough to get started in developing your own WordPress themes.

How to create a font from your own handwriting

Fontcapture is an awesome webtool. What it does? It does create your own handwriting font in some very simple steps. First you download a template. You print this template and write all the characters specified on it. Then you scan your template and upload it to Fontcapture. Fontcapture processes your handwriting and offers you a ttf file for download. See the image below for my very own OsiWrite font.

Howto install OpenVPN on Ubuntu server tutorial (and connect from OSX clients)

Howto install OpenVPN on Ubuntu server tutorial (and connect from OSX clients)

I have three computers: MacBook Pro, Netbook and a PC. They all have their own data. It would be very nice if I had all my files on just one location (e.g. my server). The only problem is: how do I access these files in a secure way. SSH is an option, but does not quite fit my needs. The solution: NFS over a VPN. NFS fulfilled all my needs, but I do not want to open NFS to whole world through my router.

A VPN, gives me access to my home network and makes it possible for me to access all my files in a secure way. My server (an Asus EEE Box) runs Ubuntu Server, and there is a Linux version of OpenVPN! I thought installing OpenVPN should not be that hard; I just need to find the right tutorial.

Vista’s successor: Windows 7

Vista’s successor: Windows 7

Today I downloaded the first beta of Windows 7. I was wondering how this new Windows version performed when running under VMWare (Using 1 GB of ram and 20GB HDD). The first problem started when I wanted to download the ISO image of the beta. I am using Firefox for OSX and the according to the Microsoft site I needed to install Silverlight (I guess this is the way they want to push Silverlight into the market). I downloaded Silverlight and installed it on my Mac, restarted the browser and still no Silverlight detected…
