Rebuilding my website

I started this website back in 2009 and based on WordPress. By using WordPress, I hoped that I could focus on the content and didn’t have to spend a lot of time on the technology. Boy, was I wrong…. Time for a major overhaul.

Moving and updating…

Gallery 2NextGEN GalleryWordPress

I started this website in 2009 in order to share photos and impressions of my holiday in Australia. At that point in time, I didn’t spend too much time investigating what the best solution for such a site would look like, nor did I look into hosting and hosting providers.

Updating, testing and changing...

Gallery 2NextGEN GalleryWordPress

For those who have looked at the site over the last few weeks, you may have noticed that the layout has changed and changed and changed again. Well, it’s all about the changes I am making to the site. I am looking at several WordPress plugins, themes and settings.

Over the next few weeks I will update the individual posts on the site in order to (finally) phase out Gallery 2 and migrate to the NextGEN Gallery. In the meantime, things may change, work or not work, etc.

So what's going on?

Gallery 2Google MapsNextGEN GalleryWordPress

Over the last few days I have been looking at a new picture gallery. And I have found the one I will migrate to NextGEN Gallery. I have also looked into options to put my pictures on a Google Map combined with the GPS tracks. I found a plugin that can do so XML Google Maps. As a result I will move away from the Inline Google Maps plugin.

While you will probably not see any changes while I am migrating the pictures to the NextGEN Gallery, you will see the impact of the Google Map plugin change. The new plugin uses a slightly different approach and since I can’t run the two plugins at the same time, you will see all sorts of strange messages in the maps that are now on my site. I will start to update the posts in order to solve the errors as soon as possible.

In the end, it will be much easier to look at my pictures and you can see where they have been taken (assuming I had my PhotoTrackr with me…).
