I busy working on redesigning some of Chris and I’s websites! The first one to get a major makeover is Odd Planet. It has a totally new look!
I’ve been busy trying to get that site organized. I added a new wordpress plugin called SimpleTag to all of our WordPress sites. I haven’t activated it on all the sites yet, but it’s working on Odd Planet. Check out the Tag and Category cloud that I added to that site. Now it’s easy to see what kind of topics are posted about most often or to bring up all the posts under a specific category or tag – like “Strange Happenings” or “Dumb Criminals” for example.
I was using Jeromes Keywords and Related posts on our sites, and still am on some, but it hasn’t been updated for use on WordPress 2.1 and the tags would disappear whenever anyone would leave a comment on one of the sites. Now we can have tags in posts and show related posts with this new simpletag plugin too.
It’s taking a bit of time since I have to convert the keywords that I was using with Jerome’s Keywords to SimpleTag format. It’s easy enough and doesn’t take much time but it’s an extra step that I’ll have to go through on each site as I activate the plugin.
Anyway, go check out Odd Planet and leave Chris a comment if you like the new look. It’s certainly easier to leave comments there now that the site isn’t using a mucked up theme!
Update: For some reason this post was marked private. I never mark posts private. I wonder if my messing around with things caused a little glitch? Weird thing is that I haven’t even begun to work on the mess that is this site! Oops!
