Fresh New Look for Summer

StrangeWork.com is sporting a fresh new look! I haven’t switched the theme on this site since I launched it in 2006, so it was long overdue. I decided to go with a very clean minimal style using the Genesis theme framework. In fact I’m running the default child theme for Genesis. I plan on tweaking the design to give it my own personal touch, but for now I’m really enjoying the clean look. We use Genesis for a lot of WordPress projects at WebDevStudios and I’ve really come to enjoy working with it. It’s a pretty solid framework so if you haven’t tried it out I highly recommend it.

I’m also starting up a new WordPress Tips and Tricks Newsletter so if you are interested be sure to sign up!

StrangeWork.com is Running WordPress 3.0!

WordPress 3.0 (nicknamed Thelonious) was released earlier today and StrangeWork.com is now running it! Actually I’ve been running WordPress 3.0 on various websites for the past 1.5 months, but this is the official release!

Be sure to check out the newest features in WP 3.0 including the enhanced custom post type support. You can use my Custom Post Type UI plugin for a quick and easy way to play with post types.

I loved seeing three WDS guys on the list of Contributors: Chris Cochran, Brian Messenlehner, and Me!
