So I decided to write this simple manual. (Which doesn’t mean I’m unhappy with you folks contacting me 😉 )
1. Get MyCSS up and running
Download MyCSS and install (unpack) the plug-in as usual. To actually get MyCSS working, create an empty file named
my.css in the mycss plug-in directory. After that, you should be able to edit it on the wordpress dashboard (dashboard page Design->MyCSS).
2. Setup initial Sliding Notes CSS
Go to http://hackadelic.com/solutions/wordpress/sliding-notes#sample-css, and copy the CSS to your clipboard. Then switch back to your dashboard, go to Design->MyCSS, and paste the CSS code into the editor. Scroll down the page, and click on “Update CSS”.
3. Insert your first Sliding Note
Open the post editor, and enter the sample shortcode from the above homepage.
That should get you started.
4. Adjust the CSS to your site design
Open the MyCSS editor, and play around with the css, to adjust it to your site design. The CSS clauses are pretty self-explanatory, so it shouldn’t be too hard to grasp their meaning. For further information about CSS, check out w3schools.
