When we started this site in early May, we knew exactly what we wanted–a super, super simple site with a very usable layout. We’ve done just that and WebD&D, we’re happy to say, was a great success. As the site grew in content, we needed to rethink and rebuild and fairly soon we started working on version two.
From day one, we also wanted to add a lot of features to the site. With v2, we’re finally introducing some of those new features. We’ll let you discover those, of which some are not obvious at first glance.
Design-wise, we’ve not gone far away from version one. What we hope we have done is spice things up a little bit, making the site more visually attractive. We’ve stuck to the familiar, neutral color scheme and the lovely Omnes typeface.
WebD&D is still running on WordPress, spiced with some custom made code to achieve exactly what we wanted. The most fun was writing some custom SQL queries for all tag-category combinations and getting variable number of posts (tips and blog) for any category combination. We plan to share the acquired knowledge and experience in future articles. So stay tuned.
We also used some of the sweet plugins available:
- WP Super Cache
- Yet Another Related Posts Plugin
- Twitter for WordPress
- All in One SEO Pack
We don’t want to keep you away from browsing the site a second longer. We hope you enjoy WebD&D v2. Let us know what you think in the comments.
