You may not have heard of them, but there’s these new things called Content Management Systems (CMS for short) and they’re really taking off.
But seriously, after putting up with my old-school, manually-managed site (designed back in 2003) for far too long, I’ve finally moved the bulk of my site to WordPress. I’m hoping it’ll make it easier to update this site more often, as well as letting people leave comments on my project and portfolio pages – something that wasn’t possible before. I can’t say it’s been a painless transition – relinking the images was a real pain, but now most of it’s done I’m relieved.
I’ve kept a few pages outside of the CMS just because I’m doing ‘special’ PHP tracking stuff on them, and Google AdSense is doing a fairly good job on them at the mo so I don’t want to fix what ain’t broke.
Since my last post I’ve changed jobs and had a baby, so should have some new stuff to post about. Expect more here soon!
