Upgraded to WordPress 2.0

Posted on December 30th, 2005 in PHP, Site Updates, WordPress by Greg

I just upgraded this site from WordPress 1.5.2 to WordPress 2.0 – it was a very simple process and it looks like they’ve done a great job in keeping backward compatibility.  All my plugins and my custom theme worked (seemingly) perfectly without any modifications.  The whole process took about 10 minutes (including uploading the new files).  The site shouldn’t look different at all, but the admin is a lot nicer – you can check out the new features if you’re interested…
Let me know if anything seems to not quite work.

New Site Design

Posted on April 12th, 2005 in Site Updates, WordPress by Greg

After a couple years with the same front page for my website I got a little bored with it…so I decided to switch it up a little bit and change around the format of my site. I thought it might be fun to do a bit of writing on the site, so I did some quick searching for a ‘blog’ or ‘content management’ solution and my final choice was WordPress.

I threw together a quick WordPress theme, augmented the “pages” feature with some missing functionality via a plugin, and ftp’d the thing up. Pretty easy. More details later on my thoughts about WordPress, it’s themes, and ease of use.

I’m hoping to put a wide variety of writing up here…as an outlet for my tech dorkiness, musical thoughts, ramblings, photography, and other things that no one will read. If a real person is actually reading this – add a comment and say hi.

Hope to write soon.
