After about 2 years of the same design I have decided to update the design of the website.
I have used the design of the Blog (iTheme), as a basis for the design and have opted for a more CSS styled website.
There are still a few design bugs, some optimisations not yet done but the hard work of doing the transition has been done.
Using the Server Side Inicludes the transition to the new design only took about 9 minutes for the whole website.
Hard to believe the site is going nearly 10 years now and averaging about 1,900 visitors per day and about 4,500 page views daily. It still doesn’t come close to the 35,000 visitors per day which shanemcdonald.com got at its peak.
There is also a small widget on the bottom of the site to help with social media, search, twittering, rss feeds, site translations etc.
