I’ve finally soldiered through and put together this redesign of AlertMyBanjos, which means my business cards are finally accurate. My previous site, Big Big Technical (left over from an old company) will be repurposed as a development blog.
I had hoped to crank this thing out on Friday, but I’m a little to obsessive about my own code to turn something around that fast. It’s justified, since I’m using this site to develop WordPress plugins and techniques for use on other sites. Totally worth it, even though it means a few missed hours of sleep.
Anyway, here are some features of the new redesign. I’ll be posting more about these on Big Big Technical:
- Thumbnail Galleries and Post Images — I’m using my yet-unreleased Thumbail Gallery plugin to create the galleries on the Case Studies pages. For this redesign, I added a couple new features too, including support for images in multiple groups and a way to designate a “post image” that can be displayed with each posts’s excerpt on the front page and other archive pages.
- Categories as Pages — something I’ve been tossing around in my head for a while. I finally thought of a reasonably simple way to include categories in the default WordPress menu.
