Yeah, I know the last post on this blog was in August of 2008, which was nearly a year ago. I got bored today so decided to update this blog for all you loyal subscribers out there, all eight of you (you know who you are).
This wasn’t the only blog that I left dormant. My other (much more popular) blog, Theme Lab, was also void of any updates for several months. I recently revived it and picked up where I left off. I think I’m pretty lucky to have amassed such a loyal group of subscribers.
So anyway, here’s what I’ve done today to the blog here at Leland.info:
- Upgraded to WordPress 2.7.1
- Upgraded a number of plugins (pretty easy nowadays)
- Changed the theme from Monochromatic to this
- Added a nice widgetized footer
That’s about it. I may update this blog in the future, I may not. I don’t really know as I don’t keep track of it much.
I have a lot of experience in coding good old fashioned WordPress themes, but I’ve never really delved into the prospect of working with “child” themes.
After reading countless blog posts by Justin Tadlock and Ian Stewart about how great WordPress child themes are, I decided to give it a shot. Read More
It seems like just yesterday I upgraded to 2.5.1 (even though it was over a month ago). There’s not really much difference. A few things I noticed right after upgrading:
- Word count on the write menu
- “Bubble” for outdated plugins
It was a relatively painless upgrade for this blog, especially since I don’t have that many plugins that I’d have to keep up with too.
I know, it’s a little late – but I’ve just upgraded this blog to run the latest version of WordPress, 2.5.1. To the 2 or so people who actually read this blog, you probably won’t notice much of a difference.
I’ve recently launched a Premium WordPress Themes store at PowerTheme.com. I’m using e-Junkie to automatically process the payments. I’ll have an affiliate program soon through there as well. At the moment there’s only a couple paid themes, but they’re of high quality. There’s also one free theme there at the moment, called Elegance. Feel free to check it out!
