Features Learned Today – Tweaks to Thesis Theme Installation

It was an intense day in my WordPressed brain today. Hard at work migrating Songwriting Scene to it’s new home on a SiteGround server, using the Thesis theme.

Learned today how to:

  • Turn the text banner into an image banner. Big kudos goto Chris Pearson, for designing the Thesis framework so that this change is easy, and to DoubleMule for explaining how to customize the banner using easy CSS.
  • Adsense – Found an “Advertising Manager” plugin, but not quite getting ads to appear yet.
  • Google Analytics – Easy(!) to add into the script footer in the Thesis theme.
  • Make effective use of the Thesis theme’s “teaser” feature

Still to do:

  • Add our Twitter widget to the sidebar.
  • Start working on some CSS styling to give the blog a unique look.
  • Add our newsletter and post subscription sign-up form (an Aweber form).
