By December, I thought I could wrap it […]

If you have been crawled under someone else’s blog, this is something I have been working on forever to generate a site like the ds106 Assignment Bank. In a […]
It’s almost ready to share. I’ve been working on and off since August (a project I thought I could do in a month) on turning the ds106 Assignment Bank into a customizable WordPress theme that could be used for any kind of collection of “Things to Do”.
But I’ve done all I can, and just squashed a few nagging details and formatting. A big one over the last 2 days was updating from using as a parent theme the previous WP-Bootstrap theme (based on Bootstrap 2) to the most current one based on Boostrap 3. If that sounds like gobbledy goop, do not worry.
The parent theme provides the base functionality of the site, and I am using one based on Twitter Bootstrap “the most popular front-end framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web.” The previous WP-Bootstrap had all kinds of crazy option panels, and the new version is much leaner, makes better use of LESS. The downside was having to do a lot of manual changes to my templates, because the many of the spans, divs, etc have changed.
Enough blah, let’s first look at the exterior and interior, the former you can see as well at http://bank.ds106.us (the content is of course silly filler).

cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo shared by epSos .de I’ve been sleeping on my development work to finish out a WordPress theme that gives someone the functionality of the ds106 Assignment Bank but for any kind of content. But I’m back in the game (track the prototype at http://bank.ds106.us/ the content is meaningless). […]
I grossly, grandly, and greatly underestimated the development of a WordPress theme for a customizable version of the ds106 assignment bank — I want it to be very flexible, and am finding the creation of the admin screens for configuring it to be more complex than I expected. Jim and I had planned a session […]
Some updates on the construction of a WordPress theme that will give you the features of the ds106 assignment bank. Bottom line- there’s a lot to account for to make something flexible. With a few more pieces to add, I hope I can make an alpha version available next week. And yes, the look is […]
Here is a summary of tweaking made for the prototype of the theme to make a ds106 assignment bank for your own uses. I managed to do this Friday afternoon while waiting for my truck to be serviced; I have to return tomorrow, so maybe the Ford dealership in Star Valley, Arizona is good for […]
Here is what an assignment looks like (today) on the development version for a theme that will ultimately give other people a way to build something like the ds106 Assignment Bank This nonsensical example may or may not be here tomorrow, click at your own peril. A screenshot does not give an indication about what […]
It could be I am just out of coding shape or there is more to this reshaping of the ds106 Assignment Bank than it seems. I’d hedge money on the former, but not for ling. This afternoon was spent doing more inside shuffling and some important theme adjustments. But now at least we have a […]
