We have upgraded our Word Press and selected a new site theme. I tried my hand at some art with a PCB picture and GIMP to make the background graphic for the site header. While the site is much more attractive now the idea stays the same. Helping hobbyist with Microcontrollers and providing a place to publish projects in exchange for useful parts as part of our on going Giveaway program.
Why the change… It is good to change things now and then. The site was in desperate need of a new and better look. It was also using an outdated Word Press that may have been susceptible to hacking. You may have noticed the Google Ads were kind of off topic. I do not know exactly why this was occurring and I was getting tired of placing ever one of the advertising companies into the competitive ad filter to keep them off the site. I did not find evidence of being hacked but figured it would be better to re-do the site.
I want to give a huge shout out to Infotrust. I expected that the upgrade process would be a nightmare so I went looking for a Word Press Consultant to help. I found Alex over at Infotrust. With his help, my upgrade was fairly easy with only one tense situation. Thank you Alex!
The logo graphic as used here is missing from the new site. We plan to integrate it back into the header soon.
