All WordPress, All the Time

Whew! The site is now fully over on to WordPress and all of the old content has been migrated to posts. The home page for the site now redirects right here, so if things look new (that is to say, if you haven’t been reading the blog previous… tsk-tsk!) please have a look around. The RocketMath strategy content has been reworked slightly, and maybe this will generate some interest in those check-off pages I put together a while back.

The worksheet accordion navigation below uses MooTools… This came out quite nicely and should be a little easier to negotiate especially as more worksheet categories come online. Eventually I’d like to get this into the worksheet sub-pages as well, but for now those pages still use the older CSS pop-up navigation.

There is some fancy cross-linking between the actual math worksheet pages and all of the landing pages have been redirected to appropriate posts. If anything winds up broken, please post a comment here. Otherwise I hope you enjoy the new look… Back to some actual content for me!

  1. Can’t find a specific place to comment on Rocket Math, so I’ll comment here. Check your level J worksheets. I don’t think they include the right “new facts’ which should include 5+2 and 2+5. Great site !!

  2. Many thanks KO… RocketMath Addition J was still using 5+1 and 1+5 instead of the 5+2 and 1+5… This is fixed up now!

  3. I love the look. Was this a wordpress template or did you create the layout in Dreamweaver? Plus I must find out about these wonderful new Mootools!! Are they easier to develop than CSS or do they just show better (more consistently) across browsers? Also, you should know that dadsworksheets.com is strictly first page on a “Rocket Math” google. Congratulations. Well done.

  4. Thanks Carol… I started with a basic WordPress template and modified it. I use Visual SlickEdit for all the development (maybe a little old school there.)

    MooTools is a cross-browser JavaScript framework. In many respects it works atop CSS and the DOM to do some cool things, so I wouldn’t characterize it as “easier” than CSS since you pretty much need to have that technical area (along with a bit of JavaScript) down to make use of it.

    DadsWorksheets.com is definitely Rocket Math central… Many thanks to everyone who has linked to the Rocket Math resources here. That’s really kicked the site’s Google results up… We’ve got a PageRank of 4 right now, which is fantastic given how new the site still is.

    Thanks for your feedback, Carol!

  5. Hi Dad,

    Ditto on the visual look and design kudoos. Thanks also letting us know what you use to edit the site. I hadn’t heard of SlickEdit before. I’ll try it out.
