Doodlecat's Homepage

Picture of Doodle - a 
black cat

Welcome to Doodlecat, where we enjoy the pleasures of life (with a slight bias towards the outdoors). This page is regularly updated with news and views plus information about any additions or changes to the various parts of the site. It acts as Doodlecat’s Blog too, so the odd rant considered opinion may pop up from time to time.

I would love to be able to say that Doodlecat is all my own work, but it isn’t. Much of the outdoors content is courtesy of the splendid people who participate in the annual TGO Challenge (there is a section entirely devoted to this unique event) and many others.

To help in tracking down that elusive morsel on Doodlecat, the search facility under the title bar above is tailored to help you find it, either on this home page (Doodlecat's Blog) all the rest of the site (Main Site) or – if all else fails - the internet!

So have a rummage around the old cat basket and enjoy your time with us!

Woo Hoo!

Does this mean that the blog is in fact, staying? Is the blog refusing to die?

Hope so...

'Ere - how did you find this, then?

It's on life support, but responding to treatment. Old comments seem to have been amputated and I'm trying to stitch them back on ... sigh ...

I see progress is being made porting this all across in some way then! I don't envy your position actually... if you need any advice, even just a quick question to save googling it for 20 minutes, just gimme a ring!!

My RSS reader (Google Reader) has been updated accordingly.

Almost done, Mr Fishsponge!

Thanks for all your help with the Wordpress experiment, but in the end I couldn't make all the Doodlecat pages work in an existing theme, and modifying or writing a custom theme made my head ache.

So it's back to Blogger - it seems to work and certainly publishing is much simpler now :-)

Betterer and betterer - the comments are now safely re-attached to the posts!

Worserer and worserer - I have got rid of that annoying Navbar at the top of the page with a bit of CSS, but I can't figure out how to get rid of the space in which it used to reside. For now I've simply loaded a new stylesheet for the page which repositions the elements to allow for the navbar space, but if anyone has any ideas on how to eliminate it, I'll be glad to hear them!

A bit more tinkering to do, but now it's time for a nice cup of tea!

Ha ha!!!

A bit more tweaking of the style sheet and, despite Google's best efforts with unwanted and unsolicited code, the pesky Blogger Navbar and its space is gone for good. So we now have a totally 'Doodlecat' styled page, and, amazingly, everything works.
