Anything but to do homework

New website! This time I’ll go with WordPress instead of Joomla!. It was much easier to set up, and perhaps more appropriate considering that I didn’t need most of the features that Joomla! was providing. Hopefully it will also prove to be more secure, or I will prove to be more vigilant at backing my data up.

    You continue to be my hero of web site design. Even if you don’t write the code completely on your own. Question: how do you make your personal blog echo on livejournal? Is that a packaged feature or did you code it yourself?

    I aspire to write my own code for everything, but I think that might be my downfall. Reinventing the wheel, just so I can be sure it looks just the way I want it to.

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for the complement. All I really have here though is a vanilla install of WordPress ( I found a little plugin that automatically cross-posts anything I post here on LiveJournal to achieve that other magic ( I didn’t find anything to handle comment cross-posting, but conceptually it doesn’t seem that difficult. I’m a really big fan of the CMS approach to website design.

    Hej Matt :) .. I’ve changed my blog for a year in wordpress too. I like it more, than my old blog-system ( And the best are the plugins. ^^

    WordPress! Shannon and I just switched our web pages over to wordpress too. We used Blogger for a long time, but WordPress is so much easier to work with.

    Now you have to blog lots so I can stalk you. *shifty eyes*
