A Little Facelift

Update – 00:33 4/6, Blogroll population is kicking in. I’ve added direct links to people’s RSS feeds from their blog. If you’re on the blog roll and want to use a different link for your feed, be sure and let me know.

Summer is in and I just splashed out on a lovely set of 2 LG Flatron L1917S 19″ Flatpanel monitors, nothing like it to get the design juices going. So much screen space I tell ya. With that in mind, I’ve been working on a mild facelift to the blog, tidy up certain elements and structure things a little neater.

My main idea was to remove the clutter from the sidebar (posts, comments, ever-extending blogroll, numerous links) and improve the navigation (new nav bar on the top) and search (now located bang in the header itself), so, I introduce KENMC6 Beta for WordPress 2.x.
Of course, if you’ve got any feedback, or notice any little kinks that might need ironing out then just shout. Network / Resources / Blogroll should be active by this evening at some stage.

    Ken –

    Site looks great! I forget what half of the blogs I read look like after using rss – nice to come back and have a look for a change.

    Great job.

    Good stuff, cheers David. Hope its the feedburner URL you’ve got as well 😉 An edit that I only discovered TODAY meant that the feedburner link hadn’t been published for quite a few weeks. Doesn’t have an impact on the feed, but you know yourself.

    Cheers for the feedback, much appreciated 🙂
