Fixing the Sidebar

It turned out that I cared about look and feel more than I thought I would. Wrestling with css is not a whole lot of fun..

The big thing is I want a sidebar. Not just any sidebar, but one that uses javascript in order to pull in (dynamically) the stuff that changes a lot.

The other item is that perhaps I’m treating the page header stuff wrong, and can use some other set of templating mechanism to handle the static stuff along the time of the page.

Since I have a customized template already, I can just create that part as the template and call it a day.

I also want to rid myself of the tag cloud at least temporarily. OK, well more hacks into the template language.

So, ok, here we go again… testing the format plugin.

C format test:

{{ % highlight c %}} void main () { printf(“hello, world!”); } {{ % /highlight %}}

Find me elsewhere.
