On New Website Changes

So, yeah, I’ve gone and redone the website. Again.

Call it boredom. I’m just never happy with how the website looks.

Why Stonehenge? I don’t know. And it’s based on the Kubrick WordPress theme, and I generally don’t like Kubrick. It doesn’t speak to me. Yet, for some reason, Stonehenge and the purple background worked.

I took the Stonehenge theme, and cross-bred it with a three column Kubrick (as Henge was a modified Kubrick), to produce something that worked out a little bit better for me.

The CSS code still needs some tweaking, but it’s not a priority. And I need to whip up a print stylesheet — I like print stylesheets.

I’ve also updated some various mobile plugins. Readers accessing the website on the Wii, the PSP, or the Nintendo DS were receiving a specially-formatted version of the website for their format, and I’ve added plugins for the iPhone in particular and other mobile devices in general.

  1. I’m thinking ahead to the inevitable upgrade to WP 2.3, and the template changes I know I’m going to need to make. That, more than anything, is what motivated the change.Using something that’s based pretty directly on the default theme — even if modified for extra columns — seemed a pretty good baseline for figuring out how to make the changes with 2.3 as the template code would be closer.

    The navigation bar at the top. I knew I wanted a navigation bar — a sidebar block isn’t really noticeable — so I hard-coded it into the header file in place of where the description text would go. Which, looking at it, I think worked out nicely.
