New WP install: Now We're Cookin' (24 posts)

    I've converted another section of my main site (nitallica.org) to WordPress. This one gets its own install because it's a database of cooking recipes. :)

    http://www.nitallica.org/recipes/

    I'm interested in hearing what you guys think, particularly those of you on older PCs, MACs, and *nix. :D

    Thanks!

    Updated!

    Added a random image script from PhotoMatt to cycle through various header images.

    Whooo - nicki that is FLAT COOL! Wow.... love it....

    What program do you use for recipe storage? Or are you simply implementing them as "posts"? I use NYC (heh, yup, Now You're Cooking), and have been thinking over how to meld its db capabilities with wp but I'm not that far along in any sort of programming yet....

    Thanks, vkaryl. :) They're posts that I'm either typing by hand or scanning (OCR'ing) and copy/paste into a new post.

    The only snag is that the header images "skip" when viewing in IE, so I'm playing around with Random Header Image by Patrick David. :)

    Oh yeah, leave it to IE *sigh*. Looks great in FF though!

    Tell ya what, if I get the NYC to wp thing sorted, I'll pass it along, okay?

    Just activated RHI and it's flawless as far as I can tell. *g* Firefox likes it too, and my code validates. (yay :D)

    re: NYC, sounds awesome! :)

    I'm linking you.... I don't get lots of traffic, but that'll make it really easy for ME to get there for a "virtual chocoholicfest"....

    I must say, that's a nice looking theme, especially for the content you have chosen. =) Just was browsing for a recipe(s) for Baked Spaghetti, but apparently you don't have any yet. =) I just love Baked Spaghetti haha.. =)

    I'll keep checking in from time to time though..I might just be in need of something else sooner or later lol. =)

    I know I found some through a Google search..
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=baked+spaghetti&spell=1

    But I'd rather just have a "main source" for Recipes though. And what better then to just bookmark a Word Press driven blog, dedicated to Recipes. =)

    spencerp

    *Bookmarked It* Keep up the good work there. =) I'm also going to add your link to my blog.. =)

    Wow, nice! Would be great if the header picture would reflect the category. I have some recipies on my site too but not nearly as much as you do. It's been added to my food links.

    Thank you, spencerp. :D I saw LOTS of recipes, but those stuck out (esp. the one from the michigan.gov site!), and I'll be trying them soon! :9 yum!

    mstegink, thank you. :) I had thought about the custom header for each category, but I liked the idea of random images better ... plus I just got a new stock CD in with lots of food/dinner images so I'll be adding more! :)

    *taunts vkaryl* I have more chocolate images! ;)

    hehehe
