A few months ago, I set a few goals.
One of them was to rebuild this site using WordPress’ 3.0’s custom post types and HTML 5, plus develop a mobile theme. Well, you’re looking at that site. Thanks for the awesome work of the Automattic theme team, I’ve got a new site, coded with HTML5 and mobile ready, with responsive design.
About the New Site
I created the site with Duster as a parent theme, harnessing many of WordPress’ most recent and powerful features. Duster comes HTML5 ready and includes CSS 3 responsive design media queries. It proved to be a great starting point. Other people that deserve credit for inspiration:
- Justin Tadlock for custom post type guidance
- Devin Price for portfolio custom post type inspiration
- Sylvia Egger and Patrick Ramsey for WordPress accessibility tips
The new site brings marked improvements over my old site. I used a child theme, took advantage of WordPress templates and used custom post types and taxonomies.
I learned a ton, and hope to do a couple tutorials in the future.
