Meditations on a Crimson Shadow

More fun from the deep end of web development… Trust me, revisiting your PHP templates every few months is potentially quite confusing. What always gets me, is that WordPress is so inconsequently structured. It’s really like they couldn’t make up their minds about clean external configurability and are imposing pre-formatted HTML constructs and CSS element names where you really want things to look differently and use your own stuff. You know, what does "pp" in your style sheet really mean and these sorts of things. Ultimately you still end up digging into their default includes instead of just working with your theme files, and that can be quite dangerous and you really spend some time just searching for those tiny two line global function calls to polish them up. *argh* Even with your own comments, you then spend another good load of time to figure out how it all goes together. No fun at all!
