Website Updates

It has been a good few days for the website.

Over the past few days I have been able to make some big improvements to the site, some of which includes a new tag cloud which actually looks like a cloud. Downfall is it’s flash based. To take care of the flash issue I made the blog portion of my site iFriendly so whenever a mobile device goes to my blog they will see a easy to use mobile version.

There is also a new cleaner archive structure, a new google powered search feature which searches the whole site, not just the blog. Elsewhere I implemented some new PHP coding and finally figured out how to get my blog to pull from PHP code on my site so updating links and changing things around will be a LOT easier in the future. Most notably, today I renewed my domain for another 3 years, the site is now in place until August 18th, 2015.

I know there are a few people who were curious as to what all I have added to WP to make it function the way it does so here is a list of all the plugins which I am using. I know there are a few which could be consolidated but I have not found a condensed version which I like. If anyone knows of a plug-in which will post my new blog posts to Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and give you the option to like, tweet, and +1 the article that would be great! If it also came with a twitter feed for my sidebar it would be even better.

The List:

  • WP YouTube Player
  • WP Touch
  • WP to Twitter
  • WP Cumulus
  • WP Gravatars
  • Wordbooker
  • Tweet This
  • Simple Google Analytics
  • Like
  • Lime
  • Google XML Sitemaps
  • Fluency Admin
  • Facebook Page Publish
  • Facebook Comments Importer
  • EG-Archives
  • Efficient Related Posts
  • DP Tweaks
  • Disable WordPress Theme Updates
  • Akismet
  • On top of all this I have still had time to shoot. On my way home from work last night I was able to stop and get some great post-rain-beach-sunset pictures, make sure to check back soon for those!
