FavBrowser.com 2.2

By | October 11, 2008 | 7 Comments

Hi there,

I’ve finally finished this blog upgrade. The hardest part was probably skin migration from WordPress 2.2 to 2.6. Yes, we are now using WordPress 2.6.

What’s New?

Contact form
Gravatars support (this was actually done by WordPress, but still a new thing here ;-))

Performance Improvements

Removed site Meta links (register, login)
Re-organized categories (almost 30 removed)
Code clean up

Other Changes

Layout modifications when viewing post (moved ads, clean ups, etc.)
Recent comments is now in a much better location
Related posts removed
Few minor tweaks

Let me know if you’ve found any bugs.

    This is a test comment. Gravatars are working, indeed.

    Yes, this is how my avatar looks like :-)

    Very nice, much cleaner layout. Reducing categories it’s also great move. Gravatars… well I don’t really like them but I’m weird person ;)
    Didn’t notice any bugs so far. Generally good work. Consider to replace “Recent Comments” with tag clouds.

    I was thinking about tag clouds, but then will have to modify 500+ posts (add tags), as haven’t done that while writing posts :-)

    And gravatars, I think it’s a great way to identify yourself :-)

    nice work Vygantas, i agree with “Skracanie linków” about the tag cloud. i’m glad to see the comment voting thing goes away as i thought it’s useless .

    but where is the comment subscription check box? i like keep tracking my comments
