I was more into debugging these days. Before this I never ever touched a css or a php file. May be I was not interested, but plans of changing my site look was in my mind for long. But , am not creative at all and playing with colors is something, which I can never even dream of. But i had to do it, and am happy that three things worked well for me :
firebug and developer tool bar are firefox extentions. They will make your work with css very easy if you know a little about it. It will be even helpful in stealing some css design from other websites .
You might have noticed the new link at the top right corner of the blog .
This is the forum i was working on , and am able to complete it nearly 70% . Forum is live now and user and register and log in. The forum is powered by bbpress. You can say it as the forum for bbpress. Considering the fact that most of the people using WordPress are not commercial, bbpress is the perfect option for having a forum.
I always wanted to have a forum which I can easily integrate in wordpress. And bbpress is the solution.
It has got most of the functionalities of the smiliar to wordpress. You have plugins , themes , open source , full customization etc etc.
