So here we have it. Kind of. The main reason for this lovely new design is that I wanted to switch publishing systems from Movable Type, which had developed into a clunky, processor-intensive nightmare, to the much sleeker and sexier WordPress. This design was only meant to be a temporary measure while I played around with the templates (it’s not even my own work – we’ve got one Chris Vincent to thank for the lemony look), but now that it’s up I kinda like it, so I might stick with it for a while, tweaking as I go along.
Still, there’s plenty of work to do. None of the old site URLs are pointing to the new pages yet, so I need to play around with mod_rewrite and .htaccess, and all of the static pages still have the old look. Although the code used in the site’s contstruction validates as XHTML 1.0 transitional, much of my own post mark-up doesn’t, and I need to play around with the CSS to get some other features looking as they should. I also hope to figure out a way to display my audioscobbler rss feed online. Oooh, what fun.
So bear with me over the next few days/weeks/months as I sort all this out – blogjam may be up and down like a whore’s britches till I’m reasonably happy.
For those of you not in the slightest bit interested in any of the above, here’s a lovely picture of a baby elephant.
