After updating my Sandbox-SwimTeam theme, I turned to my Sandbox-LEGO theme. Like Sandbox-SwimTeam, Sandbox-LEGO is built on top of Sandbox and shares quite a bit of the same feature set and code. Once I updated Sandbox-SwimTeam, migrating the same changes over to Sandbox-LEGO was pretty straightforward.
If you have a LEGO web site, this a great theme for you! You can see this theme in action on my CarolinaTrainBuilders.com web site (although I don’t do much with LEGO any more). You can download the theme from the Sandbox-LEGO theme page.
Unlike the update to Sandbox-SwimTeam, this theme update will retain your settings even so you don’t have to re-enter them. I need to migrate this same logic back to Sandbox-SwimTeam too now that I’ve figured out a solution I am happy with.
I’ve got stuff spread all over the place and don’t have any one single location where I have everything collected in one spot. Pictures on Flickr, nonsense on Facebook, posts on NCLTC or NCLUG, my Swim Team Plugin project … lots of stuff.
Recently I was listening to a WordPress podcast and heard a mention of a WordPress LifeStream plugin which sounded interesting. Today I downloaded it and checked it out. If does seem to allow setting up a whole slew of feeds into WordPress which is pretty much what I was looking for. We’ll see how it goes.
Right now I have sticky post pinned to the top of this site – I suspect anything below it will be overshadowed although I don’t expect to post a lot to this site directly. It is more of an attempt to aggregate all of the other stuff I do in one place.
