WordPress 2.7 “Coltraine”

Hi there,

Something’s different here as of this week. It’s this blog, once again. WordPress 2.7 “Coltraine” was released this week by those fine folks. About the only difference that you, the user, will see is that it will load faster. The main changes happen behind the scenes where the administration section has been overhauled. It took some time to get used to but is quite nice now.

And KeithMcD.com wouldn’t be proper without yet another theme change. Although I liked the last one as it was quite simple (mostly black with a small splash of color), this one is even better. It has been customized a bit. I’ve removed some pictures from the top of the site and have restructured the bottom links and tag cloud a bit. If you have a large monitor like me (1680×1050), then the tag cloud will be next to the links at the bottom. If it’s smaller, then they’ll just stack on top of each other.

I’ve also beefed up security a bit. Comments are now more open as I’ve installed the reCaptcha system. This is a great CAPTCHA as it not only stops spam, but also helps to transcribe old texts by people’s answers to the CAPTCHA. Want to learn more? Visit reCaptcha to learn more about this win-win project.

Enjoy the new site and look for something new soon. I will be (seriously) updating this site more now although I know I say that often. In less than two weeks I’ll be on a long Christmas vacation in China. I’ll be trying to blog about it daily in order to keep everything fresh from my mind.
