My Teaching E-Portfolio

I decided the other day to set up an e-portfolio for myself. I am not exactly sure why, but it seemed like a good idea. What I have so far can be seen here. I am not totally happy with it, but I was surprised by how easy it was to make the changes that I wanted to the template - no comments, no dates, no "posted by", etc. There are still some things I would like to change, though, and I am not sure how to do them.

First of all, the way it is set up now, when you click on Professional Writing, for instance, the sidebar only shows the previous posts, not the whole list. Can someone tell me if there is a way around that? I would like for all the entries to always be there.

Second, the nice little "home" link at the bottom of the posts. Can I put it at the top as well? I didn't see the code, but maybe I gave up to easily.

So if anyone could help me out with these things or if you have any suggestions for the blog/portfolio itself, please let me know. I need all the help I can get!

Hi Nancy...I see the problem you are having and am not really sure what to do about it. If I were making such a portfolio, I would only have the main page be a blog, and would use static pages for the rest. Actually, since you disabled comments, what you have is really no longer a blog. Another option might be just to create a new Blogger blog for each page. That way you could keep the template style and color consistent and maintain the same permalinks on the side. Then you could turn on comments and have every page interactive. Hmm...I wonder....

You can "brute force" the links to the pages by taking out the list of "recent posts" (look in your template) and adding in a list of links .. each of which points to a different posting.

Lemme know if you need more help than this. :D
