Welcome to the new look for The Photographer Blog, it’s a completely new design for the blog making it more of a ‘site’ than just a blog on it’s own. Which will give me the opportunity to display more content easier, and allow me to add some new features as well.
It’s taken a while to choose the design and decide on how things were going to look, but I am very pleased with the result. There are still some tweaks to be made but I wanted to get it back online as soon as possible. Some of the new features to check out are:
A separate home page and blog page
There is now a Home Page where you will find some of the new features like the featured video. The TPB blog can now be found on the Blog Page. These can be easily found in the navigation at the top of the site.
A featured video on the home page
The home page now has a featured video about Digital Photography from You Tube, which will change on a regular basis.
The latest from my Flickr account on the home page
I now have a feed across the middle of the home page showing the latest images in my Flickr account.
RSS subscription still available from every page
If you would like to stay up-to-date with what is happening on The Photographer Blog then you can do that by subscribing to my RSS Feed. Either by choosing an option from the eNews and Updates on the top of the sidebar on the blog page, or by the white icons at the very top right of any page, or last but not least there’s also a subscribe page just in case you wanted another option!
I will be adding a newsletter and hopefully a gallery soon, so as the new features are added I will post an update about them.
But for now I hope you enjoy the site as much as I have building it, please feel free to have a look around and let me know what you think (or let me know what doesn’t work!).
The new theme that I talk about in this post is called Revolution, it was a premium WordPress theme and has been discontinued by the designer. With having no guarantees for future support or updates I decided to stop using the theme, and now use the Thesis WordPress Theme to run this blog.
