Welcome to my new layout!

The Thinkulum version 1.2 is up! And it’s only two-and-a-half weeks late, hehe. Hopefully most of you forgot I had a deadline.

The major changes I made were that I (1) moved the navigation from the bottom of the page (terrible) to a new left column, (2) moved my links to del.icio.us, and (3) moved the whole site into WordPress. I also added some new graphics for the section headings and a little favicon in the form of my handwriting. 🙂

Having the site in WordPress will hopefully make it much easier to add new pages. Maybe I’ll even update it more often! I’ll probably add links more often, since it’s such a snap with del.icio.us. I won’t post a blog update every time I do that, but the new links will appear in the “Latest links” list on the blog page. See over there? *points to the right* Moving my links off the site to del.icio.us has made this place look bare, so that will be another motivator. I have plenty of ideas; I’m just very slow and distractible.

Putting the site in WordPress was a lot of work! That’s because I had fairly specific ideas about how I wanted my site to work, and I had to mess around with my template files a lot and look for plugins, which didn’t always behave or cooperate with each other. But now it’s mostly the way I want it. There are still a few things I’d like to change, but those will require poking around in the WordPress source code a bit, and this update is late enough! Let me know if anything seems broken or ways you think the site’s design could be better.

Since my pages are in WordPress, you can now comment on some of them as if they were blog entries. So far I’ve only turned on comments for the main OBAC essay. Being in WordPress has also changed the URL structure, so if you have links or bookmarks to anything here, you’ll need to update them.

I’m sure I’ll continue to tweak things here and there, but for now, I’m Thinkulummed out!
