Site rework

The new site is more or less up & running. There’s still work to be done on both the design and the content, but I decided to throw caution to the wind and do the rest of it while the site is live.

The static content php pages are no more – all the page content is now pulled from a database driven by TextPattern. It’s a pretty nice system, although it’s new and it shows : there’s basically no official documentation, and I’ve been hacking around in the source code to get it working how I want it.

The new site design was in part inspired by That Wicked Worn Look, a style that I massively overused way back in the days of Sonique skins and since forgot. :)

I’ve actually been working on this on and off for around a year, but was never happy enough with it to release it.
That article prompted me to finally get round to finishing it off. The result is a freakish mutant hybrid of the torn & scratched design and the previous site layout.

The site seems to work perfectly in everything I’ve tried – let me know if you spot any problems. I’m still moving a lot of the content from the old site into TextPattern, so apologies for any missing stuff.
