The new look website and blog is finally here. It has taken some time… but we have finally made it.
It’s a lot slimmer, a litle bit fresher and a lot more modern.
Before I go any further… it was designed and built with *you* in mind so I simply hope you enjoy reading.
so what have we got that’s groovy:
- *Cleaner layout with simple user friendly navigation
- *Landscaping Gallary showcase
- *Wider search
- *Daily rotation of header
- *Simple easy to use contact form
- *Blog post Audio & print support
- *Better, user focused comment system
- *Twitter update integration with twitter API
- *Page and Post navigation –which is visible @blog bottom section
- *Gravatar & myblog support @comment
- *Comment user’s Flag support
- * Sitewide Vcard support
- *integration of Blog & site all together
- *new archive index selection and search method
- *Category post count
and on the technical side:
- *Whole site and Blog 95% hardcoded to reduce Plugin deppendancy
- *IP2Nation Data integration with Database
- *Flickr account integration and sync
- *Talkr API used for Audio versioning of posts
- *Better caching system-so the pages load faster
This is all with very special thanks to Kam, Paddy and Adrian. And tomorrow we return to gardens… Let me know what you think, say a well done to the lads… and enjoy, the thoughts and ramblings of a landscape gardener.
