I have been working for awhile now on a redesign and I am happy to say it is now live. It is a complete redesign from the ground up and based upon the Twenty Ten WordPress theme.Continue reading
WordPress 2.3 has been released and brings quite a few changes. Of course since I just added the Ultimate Tag Warrior plugin, tags are now a built in feature and break the UTW plugin. One very nice addition is Update Notifications, which will check for updates to WordPress itself or plugins.
Welcome to Version 9.0 of artimeg.com, of which only some have actually gone live. I have been working on this redesign for a month or 2 now. There are quite a few new features. As you can see the top of the homepage now displays some of my work and will be updated when I can. At the bottom is a section of recent photos, which are randomly pulled from the gallery. Under that I am displaying my most recent tweets from twitter. (
Currently not working for some reason. Seems to be working now, must have been a twitter issue.)
I am now using tags on my posts, although I need to go back through all of my old posts and reorganize the categories and tags.
Also, on the to-do list is clean up the css a bit. I need to do some organization and find any unnecessary code, but that will have to come later.
- askimet – Comment Spam Protection
- Customizable Post Listings – Displays the recent posts on the home page.
- Google Sitemaps – Creates a Google sitemap of my site and updates it and google when I create new posts.
- SRG Clean Archives – Displays a nice clean archive page.
- Tiger Style Administration – This one’s just for me.
- Twitter Tools – Displays tweets on home page.
- Ultimate Tag Warrior – Handles the tags.
- WordPress Database Backup – Easy database backups from WordPressadmin area.
- WP-ContactForm: Akismet Edition – Contact form script that uses askimet to handle spam.
- WP Audioscrobbler – Displays my most recent last.fm songs on the home page.
- WPG2 – Integrates WordPress and Gallery.
I promise this weekend I will finally get pictures up from the Breaking Benjamin’s St. Louis, MO show from June 15th. OK, so I got busy this weekend and did not have time to edit the images, but I have started the process and will get them up ASAP. The images are finally up.
I have the day off from work because of snow, so I decided to get some work done on this site. I have been too busy to update the work section of the site, so I am using my day off to finally get something done. I suppose it is a good thing when you are too busy for your own site. I will update this post when things are complete. Update: Site has been updated with some of my latest work.
I have been using last.fm since last December and so far I have been loving it. (You may remember it as audioscrobbler.) Over 4000 songs later and I have finally decided to put what I am listening to on my site. I found a plugin for wordpress from sevennine.net installed it and everything is up and running. I still need to do a little work to the way the tracks are displayed, for instance I think I will add a nice little icon or something beside each track, but it is way too late to do anything about it tonight. It is currently set to update from last.fm every 10 minutes.
