Aihato WordPress development notes

I'm collaborating with YTEC on a new website for Aihato. I've picked WordPress to do most of the heavy lifting for this project. So far, I've spent most of my time on this project to get a good development environment in working order, with WordPress living in its own directory and some deployment recipes managed from a Makefile.

WordPress pretty pagination plugin

During the recent redesign of my blog, I decided that I wanted to have pretty pagination with numbers instead of the WordPress default Older/Newer Posts links. The plugin I decided to use was WP Page Numbers by Jens Törnell. Read More »

WordPress 2.7 administration panel changes

I really, really liked the new style of administration panel that was introduced in WordPress 2.5. In all the time since I've upgraded (and increasingly with every update), I've started to like it more and more.
