Aquila WordPress Framework Progress (Week 2)

Development went on hold for a week while I took off a week to enjoy with the family at our summer vacation spot.  Had great weather, good times, lots of laughs, but by the end I was itching to get back to work on the Aquila framework.

And unbelievably, I actually made progress this week.

Admittedly, looking back at the progress on the checklist, it doesn’t look like much.  But the “Multi-Column Widget Regions” was a big one.  That took me three days alone to complete.

Next week I’ll be focusing on completing the “Standard Page” template, a much more definable and customizable (than WordPress provides) “Customized Menu” widget, a content region widget, and a couple more display widgets. I’m hoping to tackle the FAQs and Testimonials custom post types as well. Hopefully by week’s end (it’s a short week, as Monday is a holiday here), I’ll have the Business Page and FAQs templates complete as well. A bit ambitious!
