Two thumbs up from this cow_grrrl to Tyler Reed and his gathering of gorgeous geeks (Denham Coote, Matt Gerri) at Younique for creating this AWESOME new WordPress plugin!

Basically, the new MobilePress plugin, which I’ve just installed on this blog will allow you to view justB[coz] on your mobile handset in a bandwidth- and time-saving format.

Go on – give it a try!

For WordPress theme developers, sites can now be customised for individual mobile browsers. Fabulous 🙂

Allan Kent was one of the first to download and install this plugin – check out his blog at MediaFrenzy for the first screenshots of MobilePress in action on the iPhone and various Nokia N95 browsers.

w00t w00t!

Well done Younique … you guys rock 😀

Methinks I smell the tip of an ice berg here.

Extreme makeover – headspace edition

I’ve decided I’m not happy with the functionality and design of the “headspace” part of this site. It’s my personal blog but I don’t think it’s really “me”. I don’t think it’s particularly user friendly either, some of the fonts are awful and it’s all a bit grim for me. I’m actually rather bored with it. I hate the fact that I’m using someone else’s design too – it feels I’m cheating.

I’ve been in the web industry for 10 years now and have never had to rely on a template created by someone else to generate a site, so I’m rather uncomfortable with the whole thing in general and more specifically, I’m uneasy about not having the control that I’m used to. Alas, I don’t really have the time to teach myself how to create my own theme at the moment, although it’s something that I definitely want to do soon. (It doesn’t look all that difficult, but I’ll need a bit of free time to actually sit down and do it!) I think that being able to create unique WordPress themes and using them as a CMS will be a handy service to offer our Clients as well (along with about a gazillion other ideas I wish I had the time and energy for right now.) So, until I get around to tackling that challenge, I want to see if I can find another theme to use on this site.

It’s going to take while though – there are literally thousands of resources out there to wade through. A quick check on Google spits out these sites on the first couple of results pages:

So, I’ll be having a good look at them all and playing around till I find something a bit better than this one, something that’s more “me”. I also need to clean some stuff up – now that I’ve added a few new categories, I should move a few posts to more appropriate homes. I apologise in advance if things go a bit whacko over the next few weeks while I’m testing things out.

If my “headspace” becomes “warped” (!) in the near future, just smile and wave boys, smile and wave =)
