About the New Look

Here’s a piece of advice.  Never say to yourself on a Saturday morning, well, I think I’m just going to completely re-do the old web site over the weekend.  Dumb idea, but this is where I am so far. 

Consider it a work in progress and pass along any suggestions you might have.  Right now, the site is still a hybrid.  The only other page in WordPress right now is the Calendar page but for some reason, I was not able to import the old posts from Blogger properly so that’s a mess.  (Notice to Jeff H. and David T., I will be needing some technical assistance in getting the CD Reviews page and, especially, the Composers Forum imported to WP.  There is a way to keep the Haloscan quotes but it’s beyond my technical range.)  

I’ve wanted to switch from Blogger to WordPress for a long time now because it’s a lot neater piece of blogging software that has a lot of features that allow us to take advantage of the new “social” folksonomy software that’s out there.  And it looks a lot more professional and is easier to manage.

Over the next few days, I’ll be sending all of you who contribute an e-mail with your new password so you can post start posting.  I hope we can get everything up and functioning right this week.

Keep your fingers crossed.

You are a glutton for punishment, Jerry. But you’re off to a good start here — I hope things continue to go well.

I’m sure this is on your list of things to do, but you need a list of composer blogs somewhere on this page: right now, it is only possible to access the latest update on an individual blog, and then only if it’s one of the last six updates overall.

Very nice. Perhaps update the “contents” buttons so that they better match the cool new look?

Well, there, you’ve solved it very quickly.
