Welcome to the New Toppa.com
Update: I’ve redesigned again since writing this post, so I’ve removed the links that are no longer valid.
I’ve redesigned toppa.com to support my web consulting work. How do you like the logo?
Other than the new look, the big change is that I’ve split my blog in two. Posts that show up on the home page concern web technology and my projects. Everything else is still on the site, but is in
my personal blog. There’s also a link for it at the bottom of the sidebar.
For my RSS fanbase (yes, I’m trying to be funny…), you can get all my posts from this feed, or
just the personal blog posts from this one.
Under the hood it’s still one blog. Figuring out how to get WordPress to display everything as if it were two blogs was an interesting challenge (one that has frustrated a number of people, judging by the threads in the WordPress support forums). It’s not just a question of limiting the topic categories that show up on the home page. It’s also a question of how to group the other categories together, and how to get the sidebar to show the appropriate navigation controls for the current context (i.e. listing the correct subset of categories on the home page, as well as on each different category archive page). I’ll write up a how-to post soon.
