This latest CommentLuv Birthday Bash marks a celebratory event as well as the end of life for lifetime updates. So sad, but you don’t have to be sad. Ever hear of “grandfathering”? You’ve only got a limited time to get it on this license before it goes to recurring payments.
Who knew installing the CommentLuv plugin would allow you to over-deliver? Hands-down, the CommentLuv plugin for WordPress has definitely made it to my list of “good, smart technology.” But sad to say, if you are not a member of the free ComLuv community, you are only half-ready to receive what you expect CommentLuv to bring to your blog’s doorstep.
The very first time I saw beautiful colored textboxes created with just CSS was while I perusing a Joomla! site. Wanting to replicate this in my own Joomla-based site, I was directed to the xTypo extension. Later, as I developed articles for a WordPress-based site, I hoped to find a plugin that would provide the same easy way to integrate textboxes. After much searching, manual code insertion, I finally found the Special Text Boxes WordPress Plugin, which was ported directly from the xTypo extension.
Want to make your articles, reports, blog postings more visually appealing? Assembled here are my all-time favorite textboxes, callouts, sidebars, and formatted quotations easily created using simple CSS. Included are the little code snipplets you’ll need to duplicate these on your own blog (whether using WordPress, Blogger or another CMS).
When presenting information online, you often want to do more with it than just italicize some text, or make a headline big and red. You probably want the means to create callout boxes and sidebars, with different colors, different borders, in differing sizes — just like you would find in offline documents created with OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or your favorite Desktop Publisher. Often, the code to create such boxes is not usually included in the stylesheet that comes with your theme or template. This series remedies that!
