Do you see the way that today’s date is rendered below the title to this post?
I had some help to get it done. (pull)I could have got this achieved eventually, I am sure, if I had sat down(/pull) with the BlueQ theme from tquizzle and Abe Olandres WP Date Image Hack. But, I didn’t. Somebody that I know was eager to help and spread the great thing that he had figured out. Not only was he willing to share, he snagged that old icon and used the colors to make the images required to do the fancy image date hack. We used the same approach with the exception that my images were to be lined up side by side, rather than stacked.
The images are as follows: These are examples. The things is that the images must cover the dates that are covered by the blog. So, since John made images to 2010, I’ll have to come up with more, if this theme, or date hack lasts beyond that.
So, the whole idea is to slice up an image (or repeat it with different front material) and stick it in place of the text. Some CSS is required. Here is mine:
padding: 0px 0px;
margin: 0px 0px 0 0;
font-size: 0.5em; /* IE FIX*/
text-align: center; /* IE FIX*/
The rest is from Macbros instructions. I got it now. If you have any questions, drop him an email.
