Site update and move to WordPress


By murray - Posted on 30 May 2009

I have finally bitten the bullet and have moved away from the predominantly static site which I have been maintaining since 2000. I decided to use WordPress as a platform due to the vast number of themes and plugins available to it as well as the ease of maintenance and hosting. I have also moved the Blogger blog into WordPress as well. Now, that didn't take long did it?

During the process I have added a whole bunch of news items from the last year or so! I am also in the process of slicing up a lot of the monolithic pages (books, resources, tools, vendors) into single posts with the appropriate category. Categories can then be used as the predominant organising principle. Tags will be applied to all posts too. So, it's not a TM system by any means but certainly a lot better than what I had.

Hopefully you will find the site more functional and a little easier to navigate.

Update: The grass is always greener on the other side and it has been moved to Drupal. The site has now been served from static HTML, Blogger, WordPress and Drupal. MW 20090728
