WordPress modifications

Okey, so for documentational purposes, to be able to reconstruct this wordpress setup:

  1. download and unpack wordpress-3.3.2.zip
  2. browse to it and complete the setup, entering the mysql details
  3. remove the wordpress link from wp-includes/default-widgets.php line 299 (this is the last entry from meta widget, one could of course rebuild the linklist another way, but I wanted it just like that only without the link to wordpress.org. easier in my eyes)
  4. remove the “powered by” div from wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/footer.php lines 25-28
  5. there’s a little bug in the twentyeleven design: for normal desktop-sized browsers this wordpress theme shows the search-box besides the menu, for which the menue must be told to end where the search-box starts. But for smaller browser-widths it moves the search bar into the logo, therefore the menu could take all the space. However only the search-box “top” rule is conditional and the padding of the menu is non-conditional, this looks stupid on small browser-windows. therefore search this rule and make it conditional as shown:
    @media (min-width: 650px) {
     #branding .only-search + #access div {
      padding-right: 205px;
     }
    }
  6. Write this stuff up 😉 and adept the settings in the wp-admin interface to your likings
