I ran out of room for that last question--so I know it might be somewhat vague. Let me know if you need additional information. Thanks again!

Well, I can’t sleep. And this is a good challenge. The best method besides editing the theme would be to break the “infinite” scrolling functionality on index pages using JavaScript. However, the idea I had doesn’t work. Sometimes breaking things is hard.

So here is a CSS hack, which is actually much easier and may also provide a practical benefit. We are simply going to hide all posts from index pages and then manually add a photo to the main page. (It will affect all index pages, but the page navigation won’t be shown because the Infinite scrolling option is checked.) The benefit is that the image won’t change every time you add a photo to one of the (tagged) sections.

Copy and paste this into your custom CSS, under Advanced in the Customize area:

body.indexpage:not(.tagpage) #content,
body.indexpage.tagpage #footer #anylastwords {display: none;}
body.indexpage #footer #anylastwords img {
  -webkit-box-shadow: 1px 2px 5px 1px #333;
  box-shadow: 1px 2px 5px 1px #333;
  margin-top: 9px;
  width: 720px;

The photo is added via the Any last words option. Copy and paste this there:

<img src="photo.jpg" /><p>How Blank</p>

Naturally, replace photo.jpg with the one you want. Just secondary, or control, click on your photo and select Copy Image Address or the like. Again, the CSS hides all of the posts on index pages, hides the photo we are adding to the footer section on tag pages, and styles the photo we are adding to the footer section on index pages.

This should work well. I hope it helps.

Hi Derek-working on a new photo blog using the bs theme. I'm really digging bs & all the convenient options you have offered. Thanks so much! The blog is private while I sort out the kinks. Using the 'pages' feature, I've been able to create several tagged categories. It looks beautiful & simple & I love it. Here's my ?: Is there a way to have 1 image for the site home page, rather than the entire feed of images, yet still have infinite scrolling for the tagged pictures in the categories?

You’re welcome! I’m glad you like the theme. This is definitely possible but involves more than a quick CSS hack. I’ll explain how to do it when I have the time.

Hypertext Style: Cool URIs don't change.

When you change a URI on your server, you can never completely tell who will have links to the old URI. They might have made links from regular web pages. They might have bookmarked your page. They might have scrawled the URI in the margin of a letter to a friend.

When someone follows a link and it breaks, they generally lose confidence in the owner of the server. They also are frustrated - emotionally and practically from accomplishing their goal.

Enough people complain all the time about dangling links that I hope the damage is obvious. I hope it also obvious that the reputation damage is to the maintainer of the server whose document vanished.

That’s why you should care.

For a Glimpse Of The Future, Try To Read A 3.5-Inch Floppy Disk | Fast Company


“We could spend all of our time on digital stewardship and not have any time to do anything new,” says Cathy Marshall, a principal researcher in Microsoft’s Silicon Valley Lab who studies personal digital archiving. “People pick and choose what things they care about. Usually, they just kind of leave it to fate. I think people can care about things, but they just end up leaving it to fate, because it’s so hard to actually do anything about it.“

And this, folks, is why I believe in highly portable document formats that have stood the test of time — like plain text files or good old pen and paper. Often, it is the most simple of mediums that is the longest lasting.

Four principles for good design

  1. Good design justifies itself

    It is not able to be omitted without loss of meaning or function barring practical alternatives. It exudes dialectical ingenuity. But more importantly it embraces its own existence along a natural, evolutionary continuum. Extinction, or the displacement of an earlier technology, for example, does not negate good design.

  2. Good design is antithetical to capitalism

    Disregarding the obvious environmental and psychological impacts of the capitalist mode of production, planned obsolescence is a business strategy, among others. Stimulating consumption by intentionally designing products badly so as to have limited use is necessitated by competition within industries.

  3. Good design is serious

    The product may be flippant but it should be executed with conviction nevertheless.

  4. Good design is formulaic

    It is not accidental, spontaneous, or random. It is reproducible. It is effortlessly understandable because it knows what its purpose is. It is modular. With hindsight, its development will seem to have been inevitable.
