Just in case you’re wondering, this new design isn’t a homebrew. Moving content and other stuff from the old (movable type powered) site to this new platform was hard enough without me having to challenge myself to come up with a design and learn how to create a wordpress theme from scratch.
The core of the design is from gluedideas’ subtle theme. I’ve made it 200 pixels wider than the orgininal, but that’s about it on the theme side of this. I will probably switch the default header image (and colours) with images of my own at some point.
I’ve also hacked a pit in the plug-ins I’m using, to make sure the site (probably) validates (as XHTML 1.0), but I’ll get back to the plug-ins I’m using at a later post.
