Browser Rendering Issues

I had some feedback about one of my earlier posts [Sunrise at Bass Harbor] today. Apparently the theme [Oenology 0.9.1 by Chip Bennett] (or the NextGEN plugin) doesn’t work very well in the K-Meleon browser. As a newbie to WordPress blogging, I’m not really sure how best to address such feedback. For starters, I plan to view my blog with Internet Explorer [IE7] on my PC. I maintain the blog on a Mac (with Firefox) and look at it with Safari and Chrome occasionally, but I don’t often have the opportunity to review it on the Windows platform, so I’d like to thank Sichere Geldanlage 2010 for the feedback. I will pass along this feedback to Chip Bennett and the folks who do the NextGEN plugin (and probably to the K-Meleon folks as well).

As I mentioned in the original post, my choice for displaying the images is part of my learning curve. I have plans to investigate other plugins (and other approaches) to display the images. I’m looking for the optimum presentation tool for my pictures. In order to make it easier to evaluate, I will probably update the original post to point to subsequent experiments. Thanks for taking the time to give me feedback. Keep it flowing!

Puns

I have the good fortune to know several people who like to pun. After years of groaning at Jerry’s puns and being subjected to them by my own wife occasionally, I now have a new source (we’ll just call him Tom). He sent this one to me on Friday:

The fattest knight at King Arthur’s round table was Sir Cumference. He acquired his size from too much pi.

There are more and I will need to figure out how to eke them out sparingly, but this will be a good way for me to learn how to use tags in WordPress.

Hello world!

Welcome to WordPress. This is my first post. I decided to learn more about it; several folks I know are using it and I want to find out what it can do.

Note: I started copying [on 19 Oct 2010] my posts from Blogger (the automated solution was blocked for some reason), but I found that I could access the Blogger blog, copy the contents, then paste the copy into a new post here. I didn’t have very many viewers at my former blog, so we will be the only ones who know about this! I finished up on 24 Oct 2010. Left comments behind. Left the blog up in case I decide to use it (in addition to or as an alternative to this one).

I like the flexibility of going back to modify the original postings; it’s a little bit easier than maintaining my web site remarks. For calendar-sensitive items, this is a better way to go. I prefer the flexibility of being able to control the layout for some things, though; I will need to explore using CSS, PHP and HTML here (and JavaScript?) as time progresses.
