After more editing and optimizing I’ve managed to combine the news, about and experience pages into one short (61 lines) PHP page, 3 sub templates (4 lines each) and one SQL table. At times, I do need to actually code things out before I can see patterns develop or see where I can tweak something to fall inline with something else I’ve already made. Fortunately that then made creating the contextual menus much less convoluted and a mere 30 lines of PHP at this point, it may be a little longer after I add the archival links for this news section though.

Next I’ll be putting some code up in the Code section which will also use the new general posting page.
