Another thing I would really like to learn is how to start building my own wordpress themes. As we all kow this can get rather expensive at times. Since I do have some knowledge of photoshop and slicing the images. Any thoughts on where a good place would be to start learning more about these two things.
Plus I am tired of getting these hacked up coded wordpress sites built for me that takes me hours to fix the code. Much like the other day when none of my meta information was showing up because the coder left out the <head> tag at the very beginning. They had some alternative head style tag that was not working and it took me several hours to figure out that was the exact problem since I did see some kind of head then /head tag but to my surprise I added the <head> and everything worked like a charm.
So I really want to learn more about building my own wordpress themes and graphics. Plus if I can find a way to lock out others from say the footer section I could use this to build large amounts of links to my site/s.
