Ah the Query of it it all

Okay…..I have mostly remade my new web page as per my clients specifications.  I am totally not done with it.  It took forever to find teaching pictures of me and figure out how to load them up in an orderly fashion.  I really like the plug in:  PlugNEdit, but there are some downfalls.  I picked a whole new THEME for WordPress with Fluidity!  Yippee for me.  I really liked Zinnia too, but as soon as I started plugging stuff in the easy way, without going to find the code to put in percentages, etc.  It became fixed.  That made me so mad.  I tried and tried again and since Zinnia didn’t have a side bar, just a foot bar, I decided to go back to my Church Theme.  That was about 90 min. wasted.  Although what I’m learning is I really don’t want to do all this stuff, I just like it when it works the way I want it to.  I’m having an integration melt-down between WordPress and just getting a template and uploading stuff like I did yesterday for the Citizen’s Climate Lobby.  Oh what to do?  What to do?  I decided to keep plugging along with WordPress.

I finally (after a quazillion attempts) figured out how to copy and save the html script and paste it into WordPress myself, because I think I just had too many pictures or something for it to work.  So….before you press CONTINUE SAVING, copy the html and then create a new page and paste it into the HTML (text) tab of WordPress.  It’s a lot easier for the poor ol’ plug in to paste into nothing, than to figure out the changes that need to happen and just change those.  It could cause one to get bald spots from ripping out hair by the roots!

So I’m onto trying to upload JQuery.  I spent about 45 min. trying to figure out how to link to the library at WordPress since the new 4.0 wordpress touts that it has it.  I decided that was too much for me today as midnight is getting closer by the minute.  So now…..I found out (and this may be very important to note for the next time you give these directions), you have to rename jQuery.fdjaklfj.js (I forgot what all the letters were) to simply jQuery.js or your site can’t read it.  This news from :  http://learn.jquery.com/about-jquery/how-jquery-works/   I just noticed that you just used the whole jquery address.  So what does this guy know…

We keep our house at 60 degrees to be environmentally conscious, which is too cold to just sit, ie wool hat/scarf!

I’m swearing at the computer…seriously….so my “client” takes pitty on me (it’s 8pm) and brings me dinner.  What a great client!  For dinner I got the newly smoked salmon, creamed cheese, crackers and merlot!  My favorite!

I’ve uploaded the jquery stuff, but I can’t get it to find the library.  Trying AGAIN.

Notice I had the bright idea to upload my wordpress site.  BUT, there is so much HTML, I’m having trouble finding the right place to put the commands.

I may be discovering the downfall of SeaMonkey.  Here’s what itScreen Shot 2014-12-06 at 8.22.27 PM looks like on my WYSIWYG site: under the leaf header and above the picture.

 

When I upload it to canyonarts, it looks like this!  With nothing below the header!!!  Maddening.Screen Shot 2014-12-06 at 8.24.38 PM

I’m starting something new:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/CindeeKarns/styles.css">
<script src="/cindeekarns/jsquery.js"></script>
<script src="//cindeekarns/jsquery.js></script>
<script>
$(function() {
$( "input[type=submit], a, button" )
.button()
.click(function( event ) {
event.preventDefault();
});
});
</script>
</head>
<body>
<button>Workshops</button>
</body>
</html>
I’m adding that.  Now it could be that I’ve done something wrong, but my eyes are crosseyed.  I’m quitting.
Okay……maybe the wine was a secret ploy to get me off the computer and watching a movie with my “client”!  :0)
