The old web page, which was also based upon my favorite publishing platform, WordPress, had fallen completely apart. 11 years of neglect was not good. All the themes and plugins were outdated, and didn’t work anymore. So I had to do it over, which is a lot of work. All the fancy themes out there look amazing when you see the demos, but once you have downloaded and activated them they just look like crap. At least until you manage to configure them to your taste.
I think I have landed on an acceptable theme for now. I will probably work on the design as I go, but first of all I think it is best to create some content. It is so much easier to customize a theme if you have a few blog posts and some galleries.
