If you are a returning visitor, you may have noticed that the site looks a little different. This is NOT the new design for one digital life. It’s the default ‘theme’ for wordpress, my blogging system. Well, almost… I had to make a couple of really minor tweaks to accommodate my image size.
My webhost sent me an email yesterday that said wordpress 1.2, the version I was using, has some big security holes. They are requiring everyone to upgrade to wordpress 1.5. The upgrade was fairly painless, but it meant reverting back to the default theme.
I was actually wanting to find the time to redesign the site anyway, and I was going to upgrade wordpress at that time. I wasn’t quite ready yet though, so I’ll have to use the default theme for now. Implementing the old design is more trouble than it’s worth because it was kind of a hodge-podge of web languages. Maybe this will inspire me to find the time to re-design.
UPDATE (a few hours later): OK, I just couldn’t stay with the default theme. Nothing against the default theme. It’s actually a really nice design based on Michael Heilemann’s, original Kubrick wordpress template. But I’m just not a default kind of guy. Even though this is only temporary (until I have time to re-design), I had to customize it at least a little.
