[resolved] Problems Adding Asides to Connections Theme (3 posts)

    I've been driving myself up the wall trying to add Asides to my blog, which uses the Connections theme.

    - I've tried the basic instructions here (http://codex.wordpress.org/Adding_Asides), but my index.php file doesn't have a date call line in it, so I don't think those'll work.

    - I've tried using the Simple Asides plugin (http://www.mikexstudios.com/simple-asides/), which works -- mostly. I can't seem to remove the date from the asides posts (which I would like to do), and in Firefox a "-->" is added to each entry that isn't part of the code -- my guess is the browser is catching an uncolsed HTML comment, and closing it unnecessarily. I don't understand the Simple Asides code well enough to fix it on my own.

    - I know of some other solutions for Asides, but none of them do exactly what I want -- which is a Matt-style aside, with its own permalink.

    I don't mind fiddling with code, but I've broken my blog so many times in the past couple of days that I'm starting to get frustrated. Any suggestions?

    Whoops! I forgot to return and mark this as resolved.

    Thanks for the suggestion of Rust Asides, podz -- I took a look at it, but it's not what I was after. I wound up going with Morgan Doocy's MiniPosts plugin (http://doocy.net/), which works flawlessly.
