Themed Login

Here’s a useful idea: get your blog login page to look like it’s part of your blog. It does work well on my hillwalking blog but you do have to watch how it behaves with whatever theme you are using. Strangely, I couldn’t get it to work on my offline blog, the development mirror of what you see online. The ability to set what page is displayed after logging in or logging out is an especially useful inclusion.

My Link Order

My Page Order

These sound like really good ideas: being able to control the running order of things on your blog sidebar is a good thing. What scuppered my using them is that you need widgets turned on for the effect to work and i have seen issues with how ID’s have been set when things are widgetised.
