CSS File Structure

This post is for those who dabble in a bit of CSS, so all those who don’t know or care for such things can move right along, I won’t take it personally, honest. For those that are interested in such things, I’m trying to change the CSS convention from what it is now to something a little bit more manageable.

An itch to scratch

I’m currently in Greece for a full 2 weeks. I’ve been looking forward to this break for well over a month now, hell I’ve been looking forward to this break for at least 3 months. I didn’t go anywhere during the summer period, which was probably the worst thing to do for my psyche to […]

CPU Minutes Problem

I’m having a little bit of a problem finding the sneaky php script that is making me clock some serious CPU minutes (yeah like I know what those are, or give two shits about them). Dreamhost have been pretty good not bugging me about this too often, so you might experience a bit of weirdness […]

Broken Kode Logo

When I’m not talking much on the Kode, it usually means I’m up to something. This has been a pretty long weekend for me. I didn’t go to work on Friday because I was pretty determind to finish off several of my projects. You’d be amazed at the amount of progress someone can get done […]

Why Adsense?

Well I can definitely tell you it’s not about the money. I don’t need it, my hosting is pretty cheapo-tastic provided by Dreamhost. I haven’t really been able to take advantage of their referral scheme to be honest, someone did use me as their referee and I thank that person greatly for that, but that’s […]

Google Adsense

Right I’ve Google Adsense on the site (only in one location and far away from the main page, it’s just below the posts in the individual posts pages), just as a test. The problem is the damn thing’s not showing up. Quick question to everyone that uses this service, does it take a while before […]

Formatting Comments

Finally got the information regarding how to format your comments sorted out. This has been on my to-do lists since I launched version 4, which is a sad state of affairs to be sure. Special thanks to Joen; well for actually giving me a way that doesn’t look crap, keeping everything nice and clean.

New Snippets Format

After hammering this a couple of times (and in the process getting an even better understanding of exactly what makes PHP tick), I’ve formatted the snippets to be part of the main posts. This is mainly to give these random ideas of mine a home, that don’t necessarily require a full post, but also shouldn’t […]

Gallery Section

I’ve finally sorted out the gallery section of Broken Kode. This has been on the backburner for nigh on 2 months now, with the only reason I can give for the delay being that I couldn’t decide on the final format for the gallery. Originally I was actually waiting for Zenphoto so that I could […]

Broken Kode 4.0: Saida Part 1

Version 4.0 has been a long time coming, as I’ve been sitting on the design for at least 3 month now. The idea popped into my head sometime in May, just something snapped and the idea began to grow. By the time I came back from holiday I knew exactly what I needed to […]

Upgrade NOW!!!

Ok to all you crazy lazy cats out there, thinking that it’ll be ok not to upgrade your wordpress install. You might be ok, but then again you might not be. A couple of hours ago something strange happened here at the Kode, and I effectively lost all my files that are loose in the […]

BKV4 - Promo 1


I’ve spent over 24hours straight on my computer in the last 2 days. Truthfully speaking this really was a long time coming. I didn’t go anywhere (except to the supermarket) and just spent all day ‘drawing’. Now I’m inverting it because I’m very traditional when it comes to my classification of artwork in general. My […]

Broken Kode Shop

So I went into central london (as I generally do on a Saturday) and grabbed some comics. While we’re on the train, Stathis tells me we should go via Old Street to grab my prints from Constandinos. I actually got a small tingle in the back of my neck when he said this. Words cannot […]

Broken Kode Version 3.0

I’ve decided to go for a more dynamic approach to v3 of this site. There are a number of reasons, but mainly it’s because I’ve been sitting on this design for a while now, and I really wanted to start using some of the features I’d set up for it, mainly my snippets column. I […]

BK 2.5, Manji Update & CSS culture.

This is going to be a pretty large one people as I’ve spent the past 4 days trying to get this to all work nicely together. As you’ll notice Broken Kode has now got a new front page, as I mentioned a little while back. This is about why, how and what I’ve learnt in […]

CoCo 2 1/2

I’ve literally wasted 2 evening on trying to sort out my bloody update to the site. I was only intending it to be a slight tweak. Spent yesterday trying to work out how to make navigation bars in CSS lists,…the way I wanted. See that’s the crux of it. I have a navigation list but […]

Once the dust has settled

Okay as far as I can tell the migration from Dreamhost is nearly over. It’s been one of those mornings. What I thought was a database error in actual fact a new crazy feature of the latest ‘unstable’ iteration of wordpress. Oh well, live and learn I guess. There’s a post missing, and a few […]

Static Pages Overload

Just thought I’d highlight a couple of new pages added to the site. I will say this, it takes a lot of time and effort to make a site whole. Makes me really appreciate other sites a lot more that I know the guys and gals have put soo much effort into them. I will […]

CoCo Musings

This is a long one (roughly 1600 words), so I guess grab a coffee and chill.

CoCo Flavoured Manji

I’ll be posting a much more indepth post about the thought processes and ideas and what was used to make Broken Kode Version 2.0 a reality and what still needs to be done. I guess this is like my ‘beta’ version. I’ve still got validation and clean-up code, but I really want to see it […]


BrokenKode version 2.0 - countdown.

Broken Kode Version 2.0 Preview

Manji Introduction. The first time I talked about Manji was in this post right here. That was on the 28th of September. The name of the theme changed to Chameleon, however I quickly realised that the name was common in it’s use on the internet for various programs, so I had to rethink my name, and […]

New Logo

Every once in a while I get a cool idea that I can’t help but get excited about. The current one is my logo. I’ve been inspired by google in how I’m going to approach this little thing. I’ll be playing around with the logo and keep adding and deleting bits and pieces to it […]

Site Tweaks list

Just so that I have post of things I need to sort out on this little site. I’m not dying to do them right now, but hey they’re things I have in my mind that need to be dealt with at some point.

1. Clean up CSS. This is pretty important. Make it clear, clean […]

mish mash heaven

I’ve had one hell of a week, it’s been ridiculous at work the last few days, mainly because I’ve been involved with an international architecture competition. This is for the British part of the Antarctic section. It’s basically a call to getting a better designed station for their scientific base in the South pole. So […]

Finally 98% finished

Hahahahahaha. I’m in love with my site at the moment. It’s been a complete labour of love but I’ve finally got it to the stage that I had in my mind at the very beginning when I began this crazy Wordpress adventure.

The icing on the cake is the ‘Broken Stats’ section which you can […]

Control Panel Version 0.1

Man the more you get into this wordpress stuff the more you find out just how much stuff people have done for you, and all you need to know is how to make things sing a bit, needless to say I’m enjoying these minor tweaks here and there.

The control panel hasn’t exactly been what […]

It’s always something…

Still playing around with the overall design of the site right now. It’s getting there, here’s a list of things I still need to try and sort out:

1. Fix up that control panel, with all the bells and whistles
Update: Sorted version 1.0 of the user control panel. It’s a start really although there are […]

Perfect space.

So after too long I’ve finally gotten a blog I’m relatively happy with. At this stage it’s like what 70% complete, which really isn’t bad going. I expect that the actual blog will keep adding features and bits and pieces in time, which is pretty nice to see it all coming together. It’s pretty slow […]
