So here we are, New Look for 2006! Happy New Year

New look, new WordPress 2.0, goodbye bBlog, you served me well..

Couldn’t handle the spam any more though sorry. It was progressing pretty well, and I loved the Smarty templates, but well it wasn’t going fast enough and as many hacks as I could put in, it was just too simplistic to get into shape.

Happy new year, let me know what you think of the new features/new banner/new layout.

I’m pretty proud of what I’ve done with it actually, took me about 48 hours solid, hardly slept..

Oh well, happy new year to me, it was starting to bug me. And people were complaining they were bored of the banner aswell, so two birds with one stone?

I’ve been experimenting with WordPress for a while, and well 2.0 just came out so it was ideal opportunity to get dug in at the deep end.

Will probably blog about my experiences, had plenty of headaches getting it all set-up. Quite a lot of plugins that didn’t work at all, a lot that just plain messed up, some I hacked to get to work.

The import from bBlog to WordPress itself was a bit of a nightmare and took 3-4 hours of hacking to get it back in shape.

To all the guessers, I think Lionel got it pretty much right.

  • I am NOT getting married.
  • I am NOT getting engaged.
  • I am NOT commiting to anything.

Nothing that serious really, just a shift to wordpress, few new features, new banner, less clutter, more blog!


Yes this is first proper post from wordpress, in the new, best BLOG EVAR!

    The only festivities I went to was at church so it wasn’t as if I was out partying tonight either. Somehow the traffic and eventual rowdy behaviour is just not worth it.

    Love your new template. You got to teach me how to do it if you ever have time.

    Err… feels odd, too used to seeing the links to the right I guess. I feel like I’m subconsciously being pulled to the left now… though that might be the alcohol working its magic, lol!

    Anyways, a happy new year to you and your readers!

    Very clear, totally legible. A model blog layout IMHO.
    Got to love WordPress 🙂

    ‘I am NOT commiting to anything.’

    Except a commitment not to commit to anything! 🙂

    And maybe a tacit commitment to continue quality blogging …

    Love the new look.

    Happy 2006!

  18. Kuzco January 2, 2006 at 12:21 am #

    ok mah…

  19. ShaolinTiger January 2, 2006 at 3:31 am #

    Haha thanks all, I dunno got a bit bored of the old one and 3-column layout is the new black!

    Given the new layouts have 2 columns on the right, pro-blogger style, but I don’t really like it.

    I kinda like what I did with this one!

    Hope you can all get used to it.

    Sorry if it was an anti-climax for some, nothing that exciting indeed hehe 🙂

    Yeah basically new look for a new year, hopefully no more headaches dealing with spam and a nicer cleaner look for everyone and the search engines of course 🙂

    Happy New Year!

    I win! Can’t believe it wasn’t a popular guess… it was hardly counterintuitive.
