Responsive Wordpress Themes that are comfortable to customize

Responsive to various devices

Most wordpress themes are now 'responsive'. They have to. But most site owners don't have a clue. They now know & generally agree that there should be a 'mobile' version for their website. And with 'responsive' being the new catch phrase, if a theme is said to be 'responsive' they accept it.

Deciding on layout style for your Drupal based website

drupal theme wireframe

Often people ask me about sample layouts for their Drupal based website. Given the needs & features, the layouts can be anything from standard 3 col. layout to magazine style or business style with slideshows, snippets at many places etc.

One thing that stumbles many are, drupal theme screenshots usually don't look that way. Choosing a Drupal theme is different from say, choosing a Wordpress theme. We cannot easily decide by the looks of a screenshot or a demo site.

Viggie.com site re-structure & re-launch

Viggie site re-launch

Viggie.com is now re-built from ground up, revamped & re-structured to work effectively. The site still runs in latest version of Drupal 6 (ver.6.22 at the time of this writing). It was actually planned with Drupal7 and made everything in working order in my local server.

However, found only when I update it to site that this web server will not support Drupal7. Drupal7 needs an extension "PHP Data Objects" enabled. (Will write a separate post on this.) As it is hosted in a friend's server who is not ready to upgrade now, I went back to Drupal6 for the time being.

Steps to use Featured Image in Wordpress

featured image usage

It's a given today, each blog post should have at least an image. Wordpress is more aware of this and have options to easily add images/videos to posts. But we often need a specific image for a post that can used by wp themes in separate locations from text content. Something like slideshows on home page or stylish display of posts in home page (as in screenshot above) needs this.

Wordpress added an option called 'Featured Image' as early as it's version 2.9. But it's not intuitive & not all themes avail this either.
