For the first time since the launch in February, I’ve redesigned the Destroyer blog. (The above picture is what it looked like before.) I started developing an old theme at 14:23 yesterday, and well, now I’m done – with a freshly updated WordPress 2.6.2 as well. 🙂
A few things that I wanted to change:
- Since I’m so proud of my magazines, I wanted them to be visible already in the header. I think they look so good together.
- I wanted 2 sidebars.
- I wanted the texts about me and about ordering Destroyer to be more serious and more personal at the same time.
- I didn’t want the blog to look like WordPress’ default theme. 😉
There’s still much to do and some pages to write, but this will do for the time being. I mean, I did have a lot to do today, other stuff I mean, and then I just got stuck infront of the screen…
A note about images
The new theme didn’t resize images automatically, and I didn’t find any way through that. Previously, images have been bigger than they appear. WordPress has automatically downsized their display to 450 pixels, but when you click on them, they are often 800 or 1200 pixels wide. Now I’ve had to resize all those big images, meaning you can’t view them bigger anymore even if you click on them. I would have to have done this sooner or later anyway since I keep exceeding my traffic limit after I wrote about Imgsrc.ru… There are plenty of homeless netizens out there as a result of the shutdown.
Anyway, this is it. Tell me what you think about the new design by voting or commenting. If you care at all, that is. 😀
