Click on the calendar to select a new entry date.
The “Daily Journal” category is a calendar (or daily entry) category.  Calendar categories automatically create a new entry each day. Plus you can easily add past or future entries simply by clicking on the calendar to the left.
When you click on the calendar, a new, empty entry is created for you. Type anything you want, format it with bold, italic, underline, change the color, add highlighting, insert pictures, and more!
The entry tree shows your entries by year, month and day.As you create new entries, you will see them listed in the “entry tree”, just below the calendar. When you first bring up a new entry date, it won’t be listed in the tree. Once you start typing, though, the entry will show up.
And don’t worry about empty entries. If you don’t actually type in an entry, nothing is saved.
If you want to change the font or background color of this category, or if you want to create additional entry categories, right-click on the entry and select “Category Properties…”

Right-click on the category tab and choose Category Properties...
You can give this entry a Calendar Charm by pressing Ctrl+F2. The small graphical icon you select will be displayed on the calendar for this entry. Use Calendar Charms to mark important entries and add a personal touch to The Journal! You can also insert Calendar Charms in your entries, by pressing Shift+F2:
Don’t forget to check out the “Notebook” category (click on the “Notebook” tab on the right, or press Ctrl+Tab)!

Testing The Journal on updated alsplace.info

I’ve just upgraded this WordPress blog from version 2.1.3 to the current 3.3.1.  I hope to add the logon to my “The Journal” software so that I am able to do posts on the fly.

It was amazing that the same theme works in this latest release as did it in v2.1.3.  I should mention that I need to check the configuration as there is a column of widgets missing– although the column is still available.

There is much to review and configure in this upgrade and I’ll get to it as soon as possible.  The reason that I bothered researching doing such an upgrade and implementing it is that I shall be reinstalling my main computer shortly and there is much newly discovered software that I have just installed on my recently purchased laptop.  I hope to do posts of the more interesting software as I do the install.

Now to clean up my notes and post them to my database and then to do a backup of the site after this upgrade.

See ya soon!
