Redesign and Upgrades

Achtung!! This site has undergone some changes. Navigate with care

Beginsathome (and all her sub-sites) has gone through a number of changes; some of them are still ‘works in progress’ but here is a short summary of what has changed or may change.

Site Wide:
The entire site is now powered by WordPress v2.0.3 – this includes all the static pages. I am aware that there is a more recent version of WP available but that information has not reached my hosting service’s Cpanel and I am reluctant to do a manual upgrade/install.

Every part of this site is running a version of K2: Static Pages and mamajunkyard’s are both relying on modified versions of K2 beta 2 revision 145 where as A Thousand Words is using a Wiphey’s Photoblogging Theme v1.1 which is a customised version K2 beta r167.

mamajunkyard’s
No more light on dark. mamajunkyard’s has been tangoed! Orange is the new strawberry, wider width is the way to go and lowercase is how I like it. Add a few plugins like Gravatar and ELA and the geek in me comes out to play.

A Thousand words
That so-called photoblog was fooling no-one. It wasn’t a photoblog – it was just a blog, with pictures and little text. This new version sounds the same (blog, pictures, some text) but thanks to Wiphey’ K2 blog theme it looks a damn sight better than before (see for yourself). Apart from the comments section which needs some work and as the usual Internet Exploder hissy fit it is good to go. Most important though the entire photoblog is now stored in a new directory. The former pseudo-photo blog is still alive and from this day forth it shall be known as ATW(v1.5).

There are still minor things that need to be worked on. If anyone notices anything broken, wonky, dodgy or out of place please let me know.

Shortly (like sometime soon or maybe sometime later but not now) I shall do a post or two citing all the resources I used/ am to get this site complete….in the meantime…enjoy Begins At Home v4.0.
