Behold the new look of CaffeinatedCoder.com.
I realize it’s beyond surreal to show a screenshot of the site on the site, but we’re living in a google-reader world so I figured it was fair game.
I spent days…er…hours…ok, maybe about 15 minutes on this new look, so enjoy.
I’ve been meaning to change the look of the site for a long time, but I had modified the php pages in my old theme to display the widgets the way I wanted and no longer had a local test environment set up for the blog, so it just didn’t seem worth the hassle.
However, since I recently upgraded my version of WordPress from an embarrassingly old version, I thought it was worth checking out the current state of skinning again.
It has always been pretty easy to change skins in WordPress, but now it’s also really easy to customize the widgets through a nice drag and drop interface.
Say what you will about its spaghetti-like PHP code base, but WordPress offers some pretty compelling features.
