Adding new functionality and figuring out how to update my site.
See the page->To do:
It was a pain to get rid of some of the footer information but I figured it out using child themes and custom php code…. they definitely don’t advertise how to do it.
Page specific CSS
I figured out how to add custom css per page after running into problems with importing things from my old website. Some issues with some of the css sliders I had made used similar tags to some of the elements of the theme, so even if I were to add a custom css file across the whole site it would cause problems. There are several ways to code style sheets specific to each page or post but I found it to be a pain within wordpress without installing a plugin (wp-add-custom-css) while still maintaining the best things about wordpress.
I have installed several plugins for sliders:
HugeIT, Slider WD, MetaSlider, and Easy FullScreen Slider
I have made a horizontal timeline that has posts by date.
But I don’t like that it doesn’t show shortcode content just the short codes which looks horrible.
