Well I couldn’t resist, so I went ahead and linked to my portal site. It makes it easier for me to get here too. I also found a how-to on the Nucleus site for creating new skins. I should look at some skins that others have created too. Always steal from the best! 😉
Ooh I feel like a kid with a new toy!
It looks like the first posting went okay, so the next thing on my list is skin. I’ll need to learn how to change the look of this thing. This is gonna be fun! Later, I’ll link back into my portal which is also undergoing a serious makeover.
After looking at a bunch of options, I’ve decided to give nucleus a try as my blogger of choice on this Yahoo! Webhosting server.
The real challenge here is that PHP is limited in various ways so the only way to really know if something works is to install and test it out. Yeah, they have a list of functions that are enabled, but there are some subtle gotchas. For example, they don’t say that when using the mail functions, the from address must be from an account on your domain. Because of this I’ve had to hack my portal a bit to allow users to email articles. No big deal, but it isn’t documented anywhere that I know of.
Despite this, Yahoo! Webhosting has been a pretty good platform for me.
