Site redesign, rework + forum

Dear all,

I have, finally, got around to doing some of the things that I said I would at the beginning of the year and, as a result, present the latest incarnation of 2bitpie.net!

The most important thing to note first is that if you encounter any problems, please let me know by emailing martin@2bitpie.net or commenting below.

For those interested in the history of the site, a long time ago it used to run on WordPress which was inflexible, buggy and completely displeasing to work with. It was also impossible to run an instance of MOD_PHP on a server using MOD_MONO, meaning that I was unable to write the cool stuff (like the discography) in .NET and still have WordPress work in PHP. Therefore, I wrote a custom blogging solution to plug the gap. Those days of WordPress being useless are gone and it had become too much work to maintain an independent blog platform. So, the main site is back on WordPress, which now works nicely in conjunction with the funky discography. You may have to register a username for yourself to comment in future, but this should be possible.

Perhaps the coolest new feature is the forum. I’ve only experimented with it briefly so far in my testing of the new site, but feel free to head over and start a conversation! Furthermore, if any comment regulars are interested in becoming forum moderators, please get in touch and we can discuss this.

Hope you all like it and we’ll continue to bring you news of band projects and goings-on as they come in.

  1. Just a note that there was a slight problem earlier with forum logins that should now be resolved.
