Getting help from Ken
First, let me say that I love WordPress and I love Graphene. I use it on four different blogs and am going to create a child theme to fit the fifth one in the next few months. (It’s been a long time since I created a child theme and am looking forward to the PHP coding challenge.)
Second, I love the community that Syahir has created here on this forum. The support that’s available for this theme is one of the reasons that I chose it. I relish my role as moderator, and although I haven’t had time to say so in the past, I would like to now publicly thank Syahir for giving me this opportunity. It’s been fantastic.
That said, I must say that I am working mad hours right now–about 80 to 85 hours per week. This will go on at least until the end of September. I am dedicated to helping as many people as I can here (when I get home from work, my priorities are: email, Graphene forum, Facebook, shower, eat, work on podcasts, sleep, go back to work) and will continue to do so. However, my answers are less researched than in the past: I am giving you more of a suggestion than something I have tested out and proven on my own blog. I generally prefer to give you a definitive solution, but hey, you just may learn more this way.
Also, my tone may be a little, well, snippy. It’s not that I’m upset with you; it’s just that I’m tired and in a bit of a hurry. But I still enjoy helping you. If you’re offended, I apologize, but please read the forum rules and include that URL!
I think I can speak for allot of people when I say: ‘Thank you’. I look at the forum almost every day to see if I can help, and you, Syahir and Kim (who has helped me many times, when I just started) are always on top with reply’s to problems. Some people forget that ‘you’ (everybody who helps here) do it all for free, next to your jobs and personal lives.
Now lets get that Documentation Wiki started! That should help people quicker, and we can refer to it for the more ‘easy’ questions.
The wiki will be coming up soon! I was bombarded with work and studies since I last posted about the wiki, and juggling between the two isn’t always easy. There’s also some major feature implementations by the other developer for the theme (Jeffrey Tummers) which I haven’t had the chance to go through yet.
So here’s my priority list:
1. Reduce the backlog of support requests on the forum to a more manageable number. At the start of today, I have like 130 notification emails in my inbox for new posts in this forum.
2. Install and configure and set up that Documentation Wiki.
3. Go through the major new features implemented by Jeffrey.
P/S: I know you guys haven’t heard of Jeffrey much, he’s seldom here in the forum, if at all! But he’s been a major contributor in implementing new features in the theme, and because of his help I’m able to implement and push out major updates quite fast. If you see the list of latest enhancements at the theme’s Google Code project page, all those have been implemented by Jeffrey.Admin
Heads up! I’ve installed the wiki here: http://wiki.khairul-syahir.com/graphene-theme/wiki/Main_Page
You can start creating/editing the pages I’ve linked to from the main page. You don’t need to be registered to create/edit the pages, but a reCaptcha will be displayed everytime before you save the page. To get rid of the reCaptcha, just register an account in the wiki.
