New Site Software

37

Unwesen was long due for an overhaul. Not that the underlying software was bad as such (I’d written it myself, so it can’t have been bad), but it was offering far less functionality than I wanted.

I remember ending up writing my own software because none of the free content management systems out there met my needs – I wanted a very simple and clean system, that would allow me to quickly whip up new pages. I didn’t mind writing my own HTML tags – in fact, I wanted to be able to do just that, because it offers greater control over the page layout.

What I didn’t want to do, though, was dealing with navigation links, search functionality, you name it.

Well, times change. By now WordPress is available, and has been for a while. WordPress offers exactly what I need. The time was here to migrate unwesen.

In the course of that, it was inevitable that I would change the layout. I hope you like the results1.

  1. Now there are image galleries as well! And footnotes! []

    With very bad englisch, the Wesen.

    Yeah, I was busier than I thought. Now I’ve got a dry spell. It’ll likely occur in bursts like this, my posting. Thanks, part of the layout is inspired by another one, but I played around with it until it became a wholly different beast.
