So I am redesigning my sister’s outdated website (Tayoland.com) that I designed and developed a couple of years back. I’m converting it from a static website into a blog. I thought what better opportunity to play with WordPress 2.5 since my sister is in no hurry for the blog to be done. Using the Simpleton WordPress theme as my framework to layout the new blog website, I was able to also play with the widgets as well since it’s widget ready. I added a couple of extra “sidebars” to the bottom of the theme as well so I can add rss widgets to the bottom of the home page for SEO and practical purposes since the right sidebars are too small for title length text.

My assessments so far is that the new administration area for WordPress 2.5 itself is great. It makes sense and is very user and “newbie” friendly. It’s similar to the Wordpress.com administration area but of course with more admin features.
