I’ve just finished migrating my blog from WordPress.com to Google Cloud Platform. Along this process, I needed to do some housekeeping, and check for broken links. Thus, the Broken Link Checker plugin.
I was particularly interested in intra-site links especially images that might have been broken through the years. But I was greeted as well by broken external links, hundreds of them:
Websites, blogs, and pages that are relevant at that time, but eventually faded into obscurity. Those are the websites that Deuts.NET survived. If you look at the sidebar, you’ll see the long list of archive links. That makes up 14 and a half years of Deuts.NET. Looking forward to 14 more years to come.
After almost one year with my previous theme (whose last screenshot shown below), I get bored with the same theme, so I decided to try a new one that’s back to the basic and what a real “theme” should be: simple but elegant.
By the way, so far in this theme did I ever stick the longest in my whole WordPress life.
Upgraded, and am loving the backend. It’s just so awesome and sleek, the fresh look and everything.
I have always been excited with this release.
I did the upgrade from WordPress 2.6.5 to WordPress 2.7 using the WordPress Autumatic Upgrade plugin. For those who are worried to do the same, so far it worked for me. Just make sure to backup everything first before doing anything.
Theme and Plugin Compatibility
So far, I don’t see any compatibility issues with my current set of plugins. The pages are working fine, including the backend (admin area). That’s so far as I try visiting each of them. If anyone notice any error or bug in any pages after this upgrade, please do let me know.
WordPress 2.7 Full Features
WordPress 2.7 is reach in new exciting features. One of my favorites was paged comments and comment threads. I still have to tweak the theme in order to fully exploit these features.
Check out the full feature list of the release over at the codex.
Due to insistent public demand, I changed the layout of the current Deuts.NET theme to be more “user-friendly” (as one of my critics pointed out). It has always been my wish to push forward my content instead of just some ads. Anyway, so much for those distracting advertisements, you will see less and less ads in the coming days as we push the design and the site itself into its full potential. I hope to hear from everyone how the new layout helped the design and the whole usability of the site.
Music 21 Videoke Contest
Saw this ad posted in the rest room of Music 21 when I last visited the place. Anyway, just let the poster speak for itself.
Lucky number, indeed. Once in our lifetime will this day ever happen. As such, Deuts.NET welcomes the day and the favorite number with a (what? again?) new design–a new look.
I know, the change of costume may have happened too soon from the last time. But what can I do, I was just longing for this time to come. And hopefully, we’ll stick to this for much longer period (I know I will).
To the old codelog theme, you have been part of Deuts.NET history. It was great while it lasted.
