New site launched
I recently launched a new site for a long-time friend and client, Stacey Vicari. Stacey’s first website was one of the very first ones I designed in the year 2000. It was an honor to be part of her team to produce her website back then. It is even more of an honor to have been brought back in to rebuild it as Stacey has moved her life and business from Louisville to Austin. The new site continues to reflect Stacey’s vibrant personality and energy. We’ve built it in WordPress so it’s search engine and mobile friendly, and she can maintain it herself.
New version of WordPress released
I realize not everyone getting my newsletter has a WordPress site. But since that is now pretty much what I do, all of my clients do. So I wanted to let you know that a couple of days ago the newest version of WordPress was released. You can read about the new WP4 features on this Elegant Themes blog post. As always, I will take care of backing up your site and doing the update in the coming week. I always wait a few days to see if there are any gottchas in the release such as plug-ins we use regularly not working. Sometimes those are released a little later. But rest assured it’s handled. And please, do NOT do the update yourself.
