I’m sorry but I feel like it’s counter productive to spend time hacking something to try to make it accommodate features I can easily find in another CMS. Wordpress is overwhelmingly designed in favor of blogging.
My clients wanted to stick to wordpress since that’s what their used to, but I guess my skills in PHP manipulation and hacking can’t quite accommodate the requirements of the layout. So after spending 10 hours reading the documentation, and obviously implementing the required hacks I’ve decided to abandon it all. I should use my meager skills with coding and PHP to manipulate a CMS that’s actually designed to produce the desired functions.
I guess I’m kind of frustrated from spending the last 15 hours building within the confines of the wrong CMS. Experimenting is important, so it was’t a waste at all. I suppose I will return to my natural choice Modx.
