Apprently there’s a lot of things WordPress don’t "like". Flash seems to be one of them since you need plugins to make it (possibly) work.

I’ve installed a plugin called pb-embedFlash and it actually works. It makes it very easy to add flash to your WordPress pages. Though there is a problem.

I made a small gallery, loading pictures through a XML-file, and the plugin won’t touch the XML. It pretends like it’s not there. (Stupid.) :P
But I think I’ve found a way to work around that which means I can finally upload some flash to my portfolio. That’ll be nice.

(Not really sure I’ll do it right now though.)

Oh, and by the way… Here’s a tip on how to write validated not-messed-up code in WordPress!

First of all you turn of the visual code mode. It’s just good at spoiling your code and making it impossible to validate once you’ve edited it once or twice. Instead you use the code mode and write your code "raw".

Now, I don’t like that small little box that WordPress have for you to write in. I lose track of what I’m writing really fast.
Instead I write all my text in DreamWeaver and paste the code into WordPress. Easy. And really fast. (Go DreamWeaver!) ;)

(Hehe, talk about blunder… I was going to validate my code again just to check and found that the favicon tag wasn’t closed. Duh!) XD

Green light!

Finally! Everything works! The page is validated and green. I have a static front page and the flash banner works. Yay! :D

And now I have a favicon… ;)

It works! It looks the same in all four browsers – without a single hack! Ha! :D
Here’s what’s left to do:

  • Flash up the title banner
  • Make customized avatars
  • Upload stuff to the gallery and organize stuff
  • Oh, yes… Write the report. Mustn’t forget.

Small progress, but that’s always something. Choosing a theme has caused much thinking the last couples of day. You might have thought that should be the easy part, but oh no… Choosing a theme has been my number one problem since this project started months ago. I really had no idea what kind of portfolio to make.

So now I’m making this thing… It’ll be pretty good. Not really what I was looking for, but… It’ll do. For now.

Oh, right… I’ve installed Safari. So now I have IE, FF, Opera and Safari. That will have to do. :P

Alright, WordPress is up and running! It didn’t take the promised 5 minutes but that was mainly my own fault. Turned out I had forgotten the “new” password to the database. Ehem. The same password I changed two years ago when I set up the AA forum.

But as you can see I found it again. :P

I’ve added Lightbox and avatars. Next thing to do: Everything else. XD
