Just a quick one, because I fully intend to go to bed soon. Right.
Installed Expression Web (after getting it gratis, thanks, Microsoft) and had a go at editing the theme for my blog.
Basically, it looks like it barfs horribly at that stage, because it doesn’t support PHP. Which the entirety of WordPress is written in. Basically, it looks like I’m going to have to either:
- Give up entirely
- Write my own WordPress theme from scratch, implementing some clever hacks so that all along Expression Web doesn’t think it’s actually dealing with PHP at all, and nothing breaks.
I think I’m going to go for 2 because I’m me, and frankly I love the intellectual challenge of fun hacks.
I might have to do some experiments to see what’ll work best, see if I can figure out a way of going with the grain rather than against it. We’ll see.
