Fang Talks

Touch the untouchable, break the unbreakable

Again, no Wrong World Wednesday. What’s happening?
I’ve got lots of things to rant about, but they aren’t really a world-wide problem, so yeah. I promise I’ll write one next week!

I’ve been doing little tad-bits of work on the new design whilst being constantly busy with school, important emails with important people, and just bumming around. It’s doing fine, sure, but there’s one thing that kind of annoys me.

Your blog’s template is in XML.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I know this is pretty much necessary to make the template work, but boy oh boy can XML be a pain in the arse. I want to link to my external stylesheet: NOPE. I want to throw in a JavaScript from external source: NOPE. I want to be able to switch styles: NOPE, not really.

I’m not all that familiar with XML yet, so that’s probably where things go wrong, but still, it’s not going easy on me.
Guess I should really focus on finishing the good and proper design before moving onto backstage stuff, though.

That’s all I really have to say on the matter. If any of you are real good with XML, and have some tips to share, post them in the comments and I’ll love you for ever and ever and ever!

    I’ve had some trouble with XML too, I had other people help me fix them, but I’m not sure if I learned anything you wouldn’t know from it already (saying that because I was completely green).

    Ugh I’ve had so many XML nightmares before.

    I have no tips to share but if you get any make sure you share them with us!

    its over my head, but I’m sure it will turn out nice when you get the kinks worked out.

    Sorry I ain’t so good with XML. Looking forward to an actual W3 though lol.

    And that is why I don’t make a blogger theme from scratch, because it’s a pain in the ass to do.
