Cleaned it up

Monday, May 17th, 2004

I cleaned up my stylesheets and index file a little bit. To make things look like the old movabletype site I hadn’t really followed the WordPress CSS sheet and I had screwed around with the index.php quite a bit. Following some examples I was able to modify a WordPress CSS sheet to make things look the way I want (I actually started with this theme and did a fair amount of changing). Only slight modifications to the index.php file were necessary. Also managed to validate as XHTML 1.0, and the CSS validates with the exception of the elements that make the curved borders. Yay.

Previously, the site was on a couple of MovableType-specific webrings.. since I don’t run MT anymore I can’t be on them, but I can’t figure out how to get off of them. Hopefully their little robots will scan the site. If not, oh well. Sorry.

Of course, just like any other website, it’s a work in progress 🙂

No more MovableType

Monday, May 17th, 2004

Due to recent changes in MovableType’s licensing, I’ve switched software to WordPress. Moving was pretty easy, I just followed along with these instructions and did a little of digging around on the WordPress forums. I even got most of the “look” from the MovableType site transitioned over. Still a little tweaking to do, but for the most part, I’m happy.

SixApart can do all the explaining they want, but the simple matter is that the software is no longer free. I’ll use GPL’d software so that I know what I’m using is free.

Just for old time’s sake, here is what the site looked like under MT.
