I wanted to extend thanks to a few groups of people:
- To those who responded to my request for a favour. I really enjoyes reading the posts. I’ve been in a bit of a comment slump lately (partially because I spend some weeks playing catch up). The carnival is going to be this week, so there is still a few days left to write a post 🙂
- To those who have posted announcements of homeschool journal in their own blogs. I’ve seen several of those. We also appreciate the compliments that many of you have paid us.
- To those who have left comments on the discussion I’ve been holding regarding Christian child rearing. For a number of reasons, it is a difficult subject for me to address. Thanks for the encouragement 🙂 I have another installment coming this week. Tonight I decided to catch up on my reading, so that tomorrow night I could put an hour or so into that post.
- To all of the bloggers who worked with us through a number of issues. They have been very patient with the site and there are a few things that we are still working on (which I’m going to talk about below).
This weekend, I spent a few hours working on some minor issues at homeschool journal. Specifically, I wrote a recent posts plugin for WordPress MU, got a funky sidebar editor working (details), and wrote a routine which will tell Andrea which themes are in use on the site. Eventually, I’ll write a page for the admin panel for it. It’s our plan to switch all themes to incorporate the sidebar editor/theme options panel into all the themes on homeschool journal. Once we are through that, the site should be stabilized. Before any new themes/features are added they be compatible with those features or will have that functionality added.
