keep in mind that it is very important that I am familiar with Wordpress. My partner is also familiar with it, and he knows even less about computers and programming than I do.-superboyac (September 20, 2011, 05:17 PM)
And, really, I don't understand why you say wordpress can't do this.-superboyac (September 20, 2011, 05:17 PM)
- Looking at your spec you're more inline with a custom Theme then you are with a Plugin. Plugin is to modify existing functionality that works into a theme, a custom theme is what changes the look and feel of the website.I would prefer a plugin because then I can convert any page, no matter what theme I'm using, to do the thing I described. Wouldn't that be a desirable thing? It's something I would really put to use on multiple websites and pages. Please let me know if I'm overlooking something.-superboyac (September 13, 2011, 03:43 PM)
- File Upload: You should use the Media Manager that comes with Wordpress. I wouldn't recommending disconnecting any part from Wordpress as it would make interacting, from a code standpoint, more difficultThis is something I do intentionally. I upload all my files into a simple folder. It's very easy for me. I can use an ftp server and just drop files in. I strongly prefer it this way. I don't really want to upload through the browser, and click around whatever internal galleries wordpress does in the admin section. This is one area where I am really old school: I like having direct access to my files and folders...it means I have ultimate control. I don't feel this should make coding any more difficult because all the plugins and stuff I've done so far work very easily with the folder addresses that I use to link to whatever I need. When it comes to the posts and pages, I don't like the gui. I prefer to do everything and see all the codes and shortcodes. The most I would ask for is a button where some parameters are entered, and it spits out the shortcode onto the post. But again, if I'm overlooking something please let me know. I struggle sometimes with understanding the usage of page templates vs. plugins vs widgets.-superboyac (September 13, 2011, 03:43 PM)
