Hacking the Arras Theme

First off, I have to say that I love the Arras Theme and think it’s the coolest one out there. The other day I was adding some content to my site and I hadn’t upgraded to WordPress 3.0 yet so I decided to do the upgrade.

What a week!

This week started out with the entire family getting the flu but ended up with beautiful weather and other good things.

At home it’s getting closer to closing on the house we’re buying and we’re enjoying the great weather. I’m having some fun playing with WordPress and some new themes so hopefully you like the new look.… Read more...
