The latest version of CowPi has reverted to a minimalist design employing plenty of white space. I miss the color a little, and the sunset image at the top a lot, but they don’t quite fit in with the new look. The sidebar has been striped down to the bare essentials. The width of the text area is wider. The Quote of the Day is set apart in a classier way than the previous version. Comments and trackbacks have been suspended for the time being. Not sure when or if ever they will come back.
The plan is to change the image in the sidebar every now and then, maybe once every two weeks or so. It will depend on my mood. We’ll see.
There are a few links in the footer at the bottom of the page. My daughter liked my “About” page, so I kept it. I plan on adding a few links in the sidebar to other parts of the CowPi website (based on the suggestion of one reader).
I upgraded to the latest version of Movable Type, that is, the weblogging software behind CowPi. There is still a problem with the category pages under the quotes section. Sorry for the insistency at the moment. Trying to generate those pages kicks out an error that I have been unable to find the source.
I’m sure there are a bunch of little things that need to be tweaked. Those will be worked out slowly.
