2007.08.25 Site Revamp... Again

I'm in the middle of revamping the site. I've made the upgrade to Movable Type 4.0, but I have a lot of work to do to bring in a new design. What you see now isn't my design (I'll update this post when it's actually done). Until that time, I'll have different bits and pieces of the site working and not working the way they should, and with different pages looking different than others. Thanks for showing some patience as I work through this. To keep you guys a bit updated on what I still have to do, I'm making a list (it's probably more for me than anybody else):

  1. Implement New Designs for:
    • Blog
    • Billboard Charts - maybe time for that overhaul too? Certainly get at least a search form built in.
    • Implement new design for other parts of site
  2. Move over Page Copies/Rips
  3. Move over AboutMe/Contact page and get that working right. Maybe even separate those out for the new design.
  4. All Entries:
    • Tag
    • Possibly Markdown-ize
    • Possibly re-edit to dump "Excerpt"
    • Possibly get rid of intro and merge with body
  5. New favicon with new design
  6. Ma.gnolia:
    • Incorporate into lifestream feed
    • Make a new bookmarks page that pulls over a JavaScipt feed.
  7. Twitter
    • Move latest Twitter to my About Me page
    • Incorporate into lifestream feed
  8. Possibly re-enable Google Coop
  9. Enable/publicize LifeStream feed
  10. Fix print css on IE 6 and 7. Grr
  11. Flickr
    • Make random not just most recent?
    • Fix formatting to be square as opposed to one column – if so, make 4, not 3 (duh)

Things I've done:

Should be easy enough, right?
