New Skin for the Old Ceremony

So the new site skin is up and I’m fairly happy with it. It’s based on Wuhan 0.4 (2010-10-17 update, the Wuhan website has long since disappeared, so no link is available), with a short javascript lifted from Gespaa. I made lots of small changes, most notably folding the menubar into the header image and switching the layout to a one-column format.

I’ve also enabled comments again. I turned them off almost immediately after starting the site when I had blog spam problems, but it has become increasingly clear to me that this site exists primarily in order to solicit feedback and it does a poor job of that with comments disabled.

If anyone finds the theme interesting, I’ve packaged it up to make it easy to use with WordPress 2.x. To install, download wuhan_lococo-0.4.1.zip, unzip, upload into /wp-content/themes/, and select it as your default theme in the wp-admin interface. If you’re new to using themes in WordPress, check out the official theme documentation or leave a question in the comments.

Update, 4/25/05: There’s now a project page for the theme at http://mikelococo.com/projects/wucoco where you can find more information as well as downloads for the latest packaged version.
