site news

New & Shiny

Things are new and sparkly around here, as changes at Blogger (my blogging software lo these many years) made it impossible for me to create my site the way I used to (long story, short version is I wasn’t going to be able to add any new project diaries, which is bad!).

The good news?  I’m using WordPress and while it’s given me a few headaches, I’m liking it far better — especially the fact that we’ve had a much needed facelift around here.

The bad news? Older posts need to be tweaked, so for a few weeks the archives won’t be useable (I’ll get that updated as quickly as possible).  Also, static pages will need to be updated to the new look, but that may take longer — luckily looks don’t really matter so much as being able to reach the content, which you can still do!

Most important: you can still reach all of the information that you’re used to accessing from the new site. You can access the Research & How-To pages (things like the Real Women’s Clothing Directory), Links & Sources, and the completed projects (now under Costume Portfolio) from either the navigation bar above, or the right sidebar.

The only weirdness will be if you’ve linked or bookmarked my site with index.html in the site address — you’ll need to change that to http://demodecouture.com/index.php .  If you bookmarked http://www.demodecouture.com/ , you’re good to go.

    If you need help, I’m only managing/building 5 WordPress sites right now.

    Love the new look! The wallpaper is perfect, and still matches “the demode colors”
