Website Updates: WordPress 3.0, New Theme

  • Posted June 8, 2010. Last modified August 18, 2010 by

Just some quick news about the site, I have upgraded to the release candidate of wordpress 3.0. I chose to do this because some of the features in the new version are exactly what I’ve needed for some of my new plugin and template ideas. My favourite is the ability to create custom post types. Eventually I will use this to support a project section of my site, which will be easily be administered within the wordpress admin interface. I have also created a plugin which can grab my status off of social networking sites such as facebook and twitter. These also use the custom post types. The new template I am working on is available to view, but it may not be entirely working at this point. You can see it by clicking the white box near the search. To switch back, there is a similar button in the new template. I am planning on cleaning up the code and releases both the old and new templates to the general public. It will take some work however since the old template was quick hacked together. The new template was designed carefully, but is not complete quite yet.

    😛 I just updated a few days ago. I’m probably the opposite of you when it comes to WordPress use– i.e., I use it, someone else themes it and some other people make plug-ins for it. Eventually, there will be a time when nothing on the internet will satisfy my WordPress needs anymore, but that will likely be a long time from now– possibly when the internet ends.

      I have to admit, your way is probably much better than mine. It seems there is never enough time to see anything I envision fully realized, which is why portions are broken at times, but maybe one day I’ll finish some of it to my satisfaction.

    Hey! I just realized something — the link in your blog roll for my blog still has my old address 😛

    Anyway — Yes, you’ve developed that syndrome that computer scientists have. Now that I think about it — the only time I’ve ever cracked open a file in WordPress was to customize a theme slightly. I’ll bet however your approach is far more satisfying 😀
