64 Bit Jungle has a new skin!

Posted by on Mar 31, 2009 in Life18 comments

Out with the oldOut with the old, in with the new. As mentioned in my last post, I loved the old i3Theme theme, but I got somewhat fidgety over the last week or so, and felt like a change, so made a change or two to the site!

The new theme is based on the English version of Open Book, developed by Jean-Baptiste Jung and which in turn is based on Darren Hoyt’s Mimbo. I’ve spent a little time making some modifications to the theme over the past few days, tweaking it to my liking, and I’ll probably spend more time over the coming weeks cleaning up some code, and tweaking some more. It’s always the same when you get a new toy.

The site should be easier to navigate. I still need to do a lot of work on streamlining categories, and optimising existing posts, their categories, tags and so on – although I’m somewhat reluctant, since I don;t want to damage any inbound links to existing posts!

That’s pretty much it. I hope you all like the new design, and find it easy to use. For the sake of sentimentality, there’s a screen shot of the old site design with this post…

Is the new site design a winner?

    was curious about your situation; many of us have created
    some nice methods and we are looking to trade strategies with other folks, be sure to shoot me an e-mail
    if interested.

  2. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your website.
    It seems like some of the text in your content are
    running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is
    happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Kudos

    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.

    Thank you

  9. hi!,I like your writing so a lot! percentage we communicate more about your article
    on AOL? I require an expert on this house to unravel my problem.

  10. When some one searches for his essential thing, therefore he/she needs to be available
    that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.

  11. Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

    it

  15. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of
    this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely
    quick for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!

  16. Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
    using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and
    I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me
    in the direction of a good platform.
