Default layout …

… since I was having endless trouble with formatting pages using the previous theme. Not that fancy, but I will be working on a new theme soon. For now I cleaned up the code and reformatted my pages. CV and publication list are up-to-date (both – the web and pdf versions) and have restructured the pages into subcategories for easier navigation. Looks better now – except for a nice picture at the top! PS: After fiddling a bit with Gimp and the WordPress theme I figured out how to change the masthead picture. Looks alright to me for a start!

A major webpage update

Well, well – I have been thinking about it for quite a while: The integration of my pages into WordPress. And here is a first result – I am hoping to polish the pages and validating them in the next few weeks. If there are any problems, let me know.P.S.: Validation was done in an evening – a few uppercase tags from way back to change and some others needed closing (e.g. the img tags). Nice.


Finally, I have been able to configure WordPress to allow me the upload of pictures and graphics. Not that it was difficult, but rather a lack of time to set permissions for the affected directories correctly.Anyway, just in time for my field trip – more to come.

Upgrade to WordPress 2.0

I have upgraded my blogsoftware to version 2.0 and so far it seems to be working well. After a backup of the database and the scripts I have deleted/replaced the old files (following a rather elaborate how-to). Even my theme seems to be ok (after reactivating the necessary plugins). Thanks, Gregoa, for your prompt warning, when the RSS feed update failed during the update :)Looks alright for now!

Done it!

That was a snap – it seems that I am either getting better in handling software-packages like these or this package is really easy to set up (most probably it is a bit of both ;))

Anyway – here goes my new research blog. In the future I will discuss my ongoing research here (an introduction will follow soon) and you are welcome to discuss it with me or leave your comments. For the moment articles are password protected, because I am still working on them. Make sure to check back in the next couple of weeks!
