I’m happy to announce that I finished to redesign my portfolio website! It’s a first time to redesign it in about 3 years. Actually former theme is my first original WordPress theme ever. I tried very hard to make it at that time but the whole code and file structures are messed up when I looked at it again so I decided to redesign.
This blog is used “qTranslate” plugin as I posted “Make Your Website Multilingual Using WordPress Plugin – qTranslate“. However I used “WPML” this time because It has been used that plugin since launched. Multilingual CMS for multilingual websites with WordPress is US$79, Multilingual Blog for multilingual blogs is US$29. They offer 30 days money-back guarantee.
“String translation” function is very useful. Normally we need to prepare .mo file to translate words in theme files, but this can find
<?php _e('Word','theme-name')?> tags automatically and you can translate and manage them in a dashboard.
It’s tested on modern browsers. Google analytics says IE8 – 4.3%, IE7 – 0.3% and IE6 – 0.1% so I didn’t even check on IE6 and 7. I don’t think it’s displayed well on them. It’s supported IE8 except CSS3.
The whole design concept is “Clean and elegant”. It was used black and white + a little bit blue like this blog at the first, but it looked a bit too formal. So I used different high saturation colours to each page. A big tagline is the same as before.
I hope everyone can enjoy my website!
