The Sunday Post #80: Updates

Since I’ve updated this theme a bit (on the way to getting it to version 3.0), I guess I should take a few minutes to talk about it.

Web Stuff

So, yea, go ahead and click through. Just a few changes, primarily to the header. I’ve also added some javascript assisted search and category jumps. I’ve got a few more tweaks coming this week, mostly navigational in nature, so keep an eye out for that. One thing I’m seriously thinking about doing is getting rid of the Facebook integration, or replacing it with something that works a little bit better.

Just took a new WordPress install live for the Sin City MINI Club that includes an event calendar, membership join form and flickr integration. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out, so are they. I’ve also been tasked with redoing the AMVIV site as well, so watch for that in the next couple of weeks.

The RentToday.us blog theme is ready and I hope to take it live this week. I’m really looking forward to installation PHP and mySQL on a Windows server. No, really.

Finally, I have one more site on the go that I expect to have live sometime this week or the early part of next. This one will include shopping cart functionality and it’s replacing a Joomla install. No, it’s not Motoringbadges.com, but it will benefit that. Still shooting for mid December to get that one up and running.

Other Stuff

Just got back from SEMA as most of you already know. Besides hanging out, taking pictures of booth babes and 2-for-1 tequilla shots, I did get some great information on some very cool products and, as I type this, I’m trying to get a review unit. Trust me, it’s cool and almost everyone in the MINI community will agree.

I do have some video from SEMA, but most of it turned out poorly. If there is anything worth sharing, I will be posting it.
