Just changed over to using all php files with an “included” header and footer. Aside from making site-wide updates much faster, I like the fact that it makes the normal parts of the site work even more like the WordPress areas.
Should have gone this way from the start, but I have a somewhat superstitious fear of certain kinds of php code because I think they’ll be harder to deal with since I can’t test them offline. Nonsense, of course; just have to be clever about it, but it makes me want to finish setting up my Linux box so I can set up an Apache web server and test things offline. Something to think about.
If you’re reading this, changing all them file names might’ve left some broken links. If you run across any, please do let me know.
