Time for a refresh of the website design. Not an idle whim, but for very practical reasons.
The existing design was launched in 2011, and was a bit of a cleaning up of the design, but it was also reasonably mobile compatible, at a time when mobile compatible wasn’t always the easiest thing to do.
The desktop version was also however based on a fairly complex WordPress template, which within a few years turned into more of a headache than a benefit.
However, over the past few years, building websites for desktop and mobile has become rather easier with the advent of “media queries”, so pages can render regardless of the size of the screen.
So, a rebuild to bring IanVisits up to date, and if a person is going to change the back code, why not clean the front as well, so a refresh of the design.
I’m still picking up a few pieces which didn’t transfer across properly, and now its live, some of the development templates turned out to be less than ideal, but the migration will be completed soon. Any glitches in the design, in the comments below please.
Blogging has also been a bit light recently, for various reasons, but will resume shortly.
As it happens, we are nearing the 10th anniversary of this website being set up. Which is a scary thought.
