This site is maintained in WordPress, using the Twenty twelve theme, background from Eos Development. Icons for services – Twitter, Flickr, etc, are from the set of 65 social icons by StudioM6. The Zotero icon is modified from one of Zotero’s own.
The WordPress Codex contains instructions for creating a site with a static front page and separate blog page.
Widgets and plugins:
- Colourful Tag Cloud widget
- Default Pages widget, with sub-pages excluded from the list by ID (on the dashboard, hover the cursor over the hyperlink for a page, post or category to see the ID in the status bar; several functions rely upon identification by ID)
- Default Categories widget, with the drop down setting enabled, and the menu styled with CSS
- Lifestream was constructed using the Lifestream plugin
- Embedded blog posts on the first page and elsewhere on the site were added using the Recent Embed Posts plugin
- Cross references within the site are wrangled using the Cross-References plugin.
- In later posts, book details are added using the OpenBook plugin.
- And bibliographies are pulled in from my Zotero account via the Zotpress plugin
