comment Switching themes without losing widgets?
@Svish - well, if I spend time creating text or menus on the right side of my blog, I consider that a type of content. The posts and pages of course were not effected by change of theme. But if I lose 30 minutes and all my links, I consider that a loss of content.

comment Switching themes without losing widgets?
Well, I have my website more or less working, but I don't want to be stuck with the 2010 theme forever. I want to branch out and try some others at some point. I focus on content first, then the theme and GUI stuff second, which to me seems more logical. But if the sidebars are totally dependent on the theme, then I guess the theme has to come before all non-post non-blog content, correct?

comment Proper implementation/use of code/syntax highlighting
Thanks, finally got it to sort of work. It looks really ugly though - like the styles are not being picked up correctly. cmstrainingvideos.com/?p=53 Any suggestions now? Before, I was actually losing code when I put it in the HTML editor, but maybe when it is in the <pre> tag, it preserves it.

comment Why is WordPress WYSIWYMG and how do I make it WYSIWYG?
Actually, better to turn off smilies from Dashboard - Settings / Writing as the link you provided suggests.

I see it now - right under "Posts"... I was guessing it would have been in settings or somewhere else.

comment Different banner on home page
Can we expand the sample above using the 3.0.x version of the default twentyten theme - i.e. public_html/wp-content/themes/twentyten/header.php. I'm guessing the changes will go somewhere in lines 60-66.

This is the first time I've been able to try this - but I'm still too confused. I found this directory: public_html/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins and created file wpse07785.js there. But I'm not sure what file to mod for the second code block above (the TinyMCE settings file?). I'm on 3.0.4 by the way.

comment Organizing by super-categories (or nested categories)?
I'm starting to see more-and-more your point. I was debating about creating a category called "Book Reviews", but then realized that maybe the book reviews should fall under the subject category instead. I'm thinking ahead of the menu bar I want to display under the banner.
