All About The Content

Well, I’ve been poking at it more, moving some static pages over, and building a navigation bar across the top.  I think I have the navigation structure worked out, so really it’s just a question of how much content I want to copy and what gets left behind…

I won’t delete anything of course, just some things might get left in the old format, if I get lazy or if I stop being excited before I finish.

Mmmm… CMS…

Maybe it’s just that I’m all excited to be learning something new, but I’m starting to really dig this WordPress CMS (Content Management System) thing.

Coding by hand has its advantages of course, like ultimate control and precision.  But there are times when that’s a pain in the rear.

So now I’m starting to feel tempted to gradually migrate the rest of my site — or at least, the relavent chunks of it — over to being powered by WordPress.  After all, it’s been pretty much the same for a few years, it could use a facelift.

On the other hand, I have a lot of open projects and it’d probably be a lot of work… so I’m bouncing it around in my head for now.  Still, knowing me, it’s the sort of thing that I might compulsively end up doing one night in lieu of sleeping.

Cheers!

Full Steam Ahead

Well I’ve decided to go full steam ahead and dive right in to WordPress. I’ve moved all the posts over, so we should be all contented up.
The theme / style / look / feel though is still up in the air. So it may change over the next few days or week or so.
And the old blog software will be shut down once I’ve poked the server a bit to redirect stuff to here.
