Heya, I've been playing around with wordpress, and I've taken a liking to it and I might try to make something a little bit more, to keep an archive of my programming/game making/whatever-current-project-I-am-working-on progress. I think I've settled on a base theme, but I have modified it a bit already, and am looking for more help in the future.

The current website is http://www.grogrog.net.

Help I'm looking for:

I like the style of the blog, but here are the main things I want to have added or modified:

- More readability in the article area. A static background behind the article area, or maybe a semi transparent image behind it, just so the diagonal lines aren't distracting from the article itself.

- Where it says on the article "Filed under: category", I would like to remove that, and have it placed at the end of the article.

- A friend is working on a character sketch for me to put at the top right above the header, and I need a way of putting the image there. Think basically an image above the search bar.

- I also want to have a poll to the right of the article, with possibly a google ad below it in the future. I already have google ads enabled, but obviously I won't need to use them for a while. But just to get everything cohesively put together. :)

Compensation:
I assume most of this is quite easy to do, but I'm also looking for somebody who'd be willing to work with me now and then if they'd be willing to give suggestions or fix things up. So at this point I'm thinking of offering a premium membership to you, or somebody of your choice. If that's not your cup of tea then maybe I could papal the equivalent or something like that. But I'd rather help support GW as well. :)

---

Any general advice or suggestions would be good as well. If you are interested in giving me a hand, post here or PM me. If you want to talk a bit more on MSN just send me a PM. Hope I didn't miss anything.

Add "background-color: #ffffff;" to class "boxpost". Then change the padding a little.

- Where it says on the article "Filed under: category", I would like to remove that, and have it placed at the end of the article.
Find the PHP that generates this list in the appropriate file ("index.php" contains the code for the index, "single.php" for a single post, etc.; you need to change it in a few places) and simply dump it somewhere else. It should look kind of like this: <?php the_category(', ') ?>

- A friend is working on a character sketch for me to put at the top right above the header, and I need a way of putting the image there. Think basically an image above the search bar.
Change the size and padding of the div with ID "header" and stick it in there as background image in the CSS.

- I also want to have a poll to the right of the article, with possibly a google ad below it in the future. I already have google ads enabled, but obviously I won't need to use them for a while. But just to get everything cohesively put together. :)
I bet there's a plugin that does this.
