    My site is http://www.techigloo.com

    Some things I want to do....\

    1. I want to implement a calendar - where can I get one? I would rather have a calendar archive than listed months...

    2. I also want to implement a "currrenly reading" link with a small picture of the book in the sidebar....I've seen on other blogs....any idea of how to do this....

    3. Why are all my links in the sidebar (links, archive) at the bottom of the page instead of staying at the top...

    thanks.

    Adrian

    1) Look at another theme for an example or look at the codex
    2) I believe there is a current plugin or an amazon.com plugin that might do what you're thinking
    3) that's a CSS issue that can be dealt with

    Depending upon the Theme you have chosen, many of them come with the calendar in the Theme just commented out. Open the sidebar.php and look to see if the code for the calendar is there and then remove the comment codes and it should show up.

    If not, then copy the calendar code from the Default Theme and paste it where you want it in the sidebar.php template file and then copy the styles from the Default Theme style.css and paste them into your Theme's style.css. You can tweak it from there to match your theme.

    Currently reading information can be found at Using_Custom_Fields.

    If there is a positioning problem with your sidebar, it is because there is 1) something in your sidebar that is pushing the width of the sidebar out too far to fix in the space provided like a link or image, 2) there is something in the main content section that is pushing the sidebar down that is too wide like an image. Isolate what it doing the pushing and shoving and either make it smaller or resize one of the parts and pieces.

    Here are some links that will help you:

    1. get_calendar()

    2. Several options:

    Use this in conjunction with WordPress' custom fields:

    Older plugin:

    3. The graphic in this post:

    is creating an overflow problem in Internet Explorer, which is pushing anything in the sidebar below it.
