Renovations are Done

Things have been a little bit in flux the past few weeks here as I completed the move between WordPress themes. It’s pretty much all hammered out, now, and I hope you like the new look of the site.

What has changed? Mostly superficial stuff, but here’s the list:

  • Switched to Mantra theme.
  • Changed to two-column layout.
  • Tweaked colours ((Well, tweaked greys, anyway.)).
  • Wrote a new About… page, including review policy.
  • Played with sidebar widgets.
  • Added new Twitter feed widget.
  • Cleaned out the link list, and added some new ones.
  • Doubled the number of quotes in the quote database.
  • Ditched the old tagline and replaced it with a new one.
  • Added a custom banner created by my friend, Sandy. Thanks, Sandy!

That’s about it. I’m gonna stop poking at it for a while, now. If you’ve got any comments or feedback about the new look, feel free to post them below.

    It looks very nice! I love the top image, and the new tag line is much less awkwardly self-deprecating than the old one. That’s a definite improvement. 🙂

    When I first saw the renovations, I was a little annoyed at the necessity of clicking through to read a given post, but two minutes later, as I was looking for the spot I’d last left you, I realized that it makes navigation much easier. So I’m cool with it. (Not that you need the approval of a lurker, but you have it anyway.)

    Well, I’m glad you like it. And it’s always nice to have people say good things about stuff my friends make, like that banner. So, thanks for the comment!
