Yah so I finally got around to revamping this site, I’ve been meaning to do it for ages, I was still using WordPress 2.0.10 and hadn’t even moved up to 2.2 branch yet.
Plus I was getting really bored of the old Chinese takeaway font header and the whole thing was too cluttered, it was giving me a headache.
This theme has been up since January 1st 2006 when I switched over to WordPress from bBlog. This was v2.0 of shaolintiger.com.
I did like it when I first did it, but moving to WordPress I think I went a bit overboard with things, especially the 10-mile long sidebars.
The loading time was a bit of a pig, it’s much faster now..I feel anyway 🙂
Previous to that I was using bBlog since October 2004 when I launched this blog, that was v1.0 of shaolintiger.com.
I still really like the simplicity of bBlog and the template I was using.
bBlog was just getting bogged down with spam and lack of updates…that’s why I jumped camp to WordPress, I can’t say I’ve regretted it at all. I feel totally comfortable with WP now and power all of my sites with it.
I’ve updated all the plugins to the latest versions too, included proper tagging and a tag page.
Most of the clutter is gone including the long ass sidebars with all the useless junk. I’ve just kept a few things I like and find useful.
I’ve added a few more web2.0 widgets so you can stalk me easier and of course got a new header image.
It’s about time I updated the About Me page aswell I think.
If you notice anything wrong or something out of place, or anything missing from v2.0 let me know in a comment or via the contact form.
