Behind the screens I have been cleaning up Happy Hotelier….Well a bit: There remain more things to do.
CSS is great.
It took some time, but I found out where in the CSS Stylesheet I could change a bit ot two so that I don’t have to add manually “[strong] [/strong]” anymore when I simply want a link shown Bold. The consequence is that now I have to delete a lot of those….So be it. Why I bother? Well, when you have to use bifocals for reading like I do, you will be glad to find this to be a Blog in a font and a font size that is easily readable. I hate many of those “Stylish” Blogs that simply do not read. Take those horrible dark backgrounds….
The WP plug in that I use is great. It makes it possible that search engines also capture keywords in foreign languages. However, in a strange way the links to the Google translation service work, but those that point to Alta Vista don’t work. So I have , temporarily, disabled the widget until I have figured it out. Also because the translate widget is in the way of XHMTL validation (not that there are not more errors left).
Big Google Brother is watching you.
Despite the fears I have here – recently there is a lot of commotion in Europe over the CIA having full insight in all bank transactions carried out by Swift…Americans are not aware what occupation by a foreign country means… so they dictate the law after 9/11 – I have, for the moment, uploaded my feeds to my Google reader and show some of the interesting posts in a widget (apart little screen or frame) in my side bar. I am definitely interested in another possibility.
My first English interview.
March 1, 2007 Paul Johnson published an interview with me on his A Luxury Travel Blog.
On my wish list:
- Solve the translation issues
- Repair the validation errors
- Find a better solution for the “Happy Hotelier’s RSS Picks” widget
- Last comments widget
- Add a couple of Digg and Del.Icio.us alike buttons
- Related posts widget
- Style switcher so that readers can choose how to read what I write
- Most visited posts widget
