Bigtime rollout

After quite a bit of work I’ve got a new version of beerdrinker.org ready to rock. Some of the new features are pretty obvious…a new banner and some random photos. But there are other new features. I’ve included a feed of my latest ficlets so at least you can tell I haven’t been slacking too much if I haven’t been posting. Then there’s the beer grab bag on the right, so if you’re ever thirsty and not sure what to consume, just checkout that doodad and let you thirst be forever quenched. Then there’s a bunch of new stuff under the hood. WordPress 2.3, some tagging tools, pretty permalinks (I was a bit late on that adoption), and more.

So, I’d love to hear what you think of the new look and other features. If something doesn’t look right or is just plain broken, or if you think something’s really cool. I’ve done a ton of (simple) customizing on the theme and I’m happy to share.

And thanks for the callout, Jack…I can only hope that y’all visited when I wasn’t busy breaking it.

    I like what you’ve done a lot. And I see you got the Archive thing working . . . that doesn’t work on my site . . . is there a quick fix?!

    it worked fairly out of the box for me. Create a new page with template archive. If that doesn’t work , maybe the archive.php file you have is buggy. Let me know I’ll send you the one that came with mine.

    I think your updates look great. I like the pictures, although I have no idea which ones are you.

    Yo Rick, I got an archive page now!

    I didn’t even see the page templates thing until you mentioned it . . . Thanks!
