What do you want to learn about?

In the interest of trying to write good posts that the APEX community will find useful, I have added a new 'poll' feature to my blog. My first poll is entitled simply, 'What would you like to read more about on my blog?' and I have suggested a few titles to pick from. You can cast your vote by selecting from the check boxes on the right of the page, below 'About Me'.

If you have any other suggestions or areas you wish to learn about or understand better, then please add a comment to this post.

Look forward to hearing from you!
Anthony.

Anthony - I could use some guidance on APEX theme/template building.

The recommended approach is to work from a copy of an existing theme (usually Theme 4 is a good staring point), and amend the templates and css as desired.

For some great reference points for the process involved in doing this, see:

Also, if you are interested there is a site where you can purchase custom themes which look pretty good, here:

Hope this helps,
