I wasn’t very happy with the last site re-design so I decided to take retrace my steps and start over from scratch. While I can’t say that I’m 100% satisfied with things now, I can, at the very least, say that I am happier than before.
As you can see, I am no longer using TextPattern anymore. I personally found the template editor somewhat clunky and difficult to use. The WordPress templates just seem a little more familiar for me and I thought it would take less time to go from conception to reality using WordPress than TextPattern. Other than that, TextPattern was an interesting option. I may go back to it again at some point, but for now, WordPress it is.
I have implemented a number of styles that you can choose from. If you look at the upper right-hand corner of the screen, you’ll see three circles of different colors. Clicking on these will swap out the color schemes on the fly and will also change the main image. I don’t have an image for the Red theme yet, but once I do, I’ll add it in.
Not much else to really add at the moment. I would, however, like to say that my intentions are to update this blog a little more frequently. Sometimes I find it difficult to find topics to write about since I tend to (read: try to) do all my blogging at SimCentral.NET, but I’ll see what I can do.
