I have to admit I’m scratching my head over the forgotten (by me) lexicon of putting together a new layout. What’s a widget again? These are the kind of things that are slowing me down. If you’re wondering why that little sidebar widget (box, if you ask me) called Inspirations doesn’t have anything in it, it’s because I haven’t been able to figure out how to put an image in it. Why does the image have to have an url?? Why can’t it just be an image from my files? And aren’t Home and Front Page the same thing? …
