The blog needed a little love and was time for a makeover. I wanted to change up the theme and add a few features. I found a great article on building link love through creating “ultimate lists of …..” and one of the examples was a smashingmagazine.com article on 83 wordpress themes you probably never seen. #1 on the themes list was this theme, redoable. I have to say, it’s a pretty nice theme.
What’s so cool about the new theme?
I like the extended live article plug-in in wordpress. it gives the uber-cool google suggest style live updating search results (example do a search for virtuozzo and watch the articles start to show up).
I also added probably the plug-in with the absolute coolest administration panel of all time. It’s called gregarious and manages the digg and social bookmark links in a very clean manner.
Next I added the “popularity” plugin. This plugin shows what posts are most popular.
Why the change?
Well, I didn’t like how the old blog theme handled H tags that was really it. It was a very clean and professional theme. The mean reason I changed was that it’s nice to change up the design from time to time and it keeps the blog exciting and new for both me and you 🙂
