Well, I’ve switched the site to WordPress

by on Jul.29, 2004, under General

Poetshome.com seems to be running ok on wordpress. I had some quirks initially with getting my default style to load – you can actually load other styles if you’d prefer. On the bottom right is a link to the other “styles” that are available. I’ve got more work to do on things like coding some changes for the categories, as well as other layout and interface design changes to get it closer to what I’d like. But, it seems to be pretty well all online.

By the way, if you’d like to look at the old site, it’s still online. There’s of course going to be no updates to it at this point, as I’ve got wordpress and other stuff in use. Although, there is a part of me that’s tempted to play with it and get it to work with WordPress database tables. Hmmm…. smile Maybe later if I’m bored (NOT likely right now).

Anyways, a few quick notes – go through, see if you can find any errors. I think I’ve got it mostly taken care of, but if you can find something, let me know. I’m also open to any suggestions or comments – please post below. There’s one I’d like to implement, but it requires modifying wordpress, and I haven’t had the time to figure out what I’ll need to do. That change is to get the categories links up to the top. WordPress does some things really nicely, but it also obfuscates some things very poorly. I’ll write more on that later with regards to how I’d like some things to work. But, enough of that – test the site, see and say what you think, and we’ll see how things go smile Thanks all!

UPDATE: Ok, quick note – I’m also open to any plugin suggestions people have. i.e. is there any interface requests that you’d like? I’ve already got a subscribe-to-comments option enabled which emails you on a new comment, but if anyone has other requests, let me know.
