It’s been about a year and a half since I brought WackoMedia online.

I’ve been more then happy with the functionality of the site and have been spending any free time I have on making the backend just right.

Because of this the layout has always been lacking.

I got something good enough going for a while, but now it’s time to focus on the graphics a bit…

There, that’s much better.

The main reason I’ve been holding off on this site design is because I was waiting for wordpress to release a major update before I put a lot of work into it.

The update did a lot of cool things (like let me host multiples sites with one install) and it took a while for new themes to come out and really use it’s cool new powers.

I liked the old honeycomb background but this time I wanted something a little less blocky and said more about myself, but was also subtle enough not to get in the way of the posts.

I think I succeeded here because there’s a little bit of everything I do all in one picture. I especially like how the plaid pattern pokes through and how Wheldon and Cyrus complement each other.

The site isn’t just better looking either, the new layout has a lot of features on the frontend that were not there before (like date of post, name of author, and search archive by date) so feel free to take a look around and tell me what you think.
