Website 21.2 In Development

I’ve started some preliminary work on a minor update to the site which, when done, will bring the version to 21.2. Believe it or not, it’s been six months since the last minor update and over a year since the last top-to-bottom redesign. I’m still pretty happy with it, but—as happens every-so-often with me—I’m starting to feel like I ought to update it just for the sake of updating it. I also want to try out some cool new jQuery and WordPress tricks I’ve been learning.

So far, my experimental development version has . . . nothing all that great, at least from the reader’s perspective. I’ve added support for the new menu system in WordPress 3.0, which will make it easier for me to make changes to the menus when I need to (and make sure the Site Map and menu are always in sync). I’ve also hacked around on WP-Super-Cache so I can enable WordPress caching on my theme without screwing up the desktop vs. mobile versions, which will speed things up a bit for everybody when it goes live.

Other than that, I don’t really have much planned yet . . . so if you have any requests, now is the time. What do you love about the site? What do you hate about it? Let me know.
