I’ve been thinking about updating this website for a while but I always ended up preferring to spend my time making new content. I finally decided to get to work and made a completely new website from scratch based on The7 WordPress theme. Finally came up with a logo also.
It took me 3 months to customize everything and I now have a clean responsive layout with much better post structure. Unlike Nostro v1 which was an outdated code mess, I wanted to make it the right way, this time using child theme, proper CSS overwrite and a few php tweaks. I managed to get the result I wanted but I’m definitely not an expert and any help regarding glitches and optimization is welcome, please let me know if you have suggestions.
I switched from red & black to black/grey with gold accent which makes the interface easier to read. The site might be a bit slower to load, especially on photo posts but the quality is much higher and the layout makes use of the entire screen space available.
I am now in the process of updating each individual post with the new layout starting with the most popular posts. It will take some time before I have it 100% done.
