Site Improvements

Spent a bit of time on improving my blog. Here is a list of changes:

  • New theme. Very similar to old one, but uses double sidebar and have few things better than old one
  • Added contact page
  • Moved archives from drop-down menu to separate page (also using enhanced archive view)
  • Added/Edited few links
  • Added twitter widget
  • Added link to my photos in main navigation
  • Changed a number of posts displayed on homepage from 10 to 5, making the site even more compact

New theme is based on AdSimple, but I did few modifications to it. Two major reasons to use it instead of old one are:

  • Better view of threaded comments. Old one had a mess when thread is pretty deep
  • Double sidebar. It can contain more information closer to the top of the page

Moved to new hosting

Finally I moved by blog to a new hosting (being more precise – to my brother’s hosting). The idea of moving here was with me for a while, but only now came to life.

Response time of the blog is much better. Thank Leo :)

Blog cleanup

Spent a bit of a time to clean up my wordpress installation:

  • Change theme to Clean Small White
  • Removed old/unused plugins
  • Removed obsolete links, added few new ones

Things look fine, but as always – feel free to let me know if something is going wrong.

WordPress 3

Upgraded to WP3! The upgrade process went with no problems at all. All plugins, theme and whatever else I had looks like working, but if you find something going wrong – let me know. And now is the proper time to look for new theme :)
