New LongCountdown Theme

For the first time in ages, I’ve decided to ditch my own homemade WordPress theme and use somebody else’s instead. I chose the Amazing Grace theme by Vladimir Prelovac, and spent most of the day customizing it. I think Vlad’s theme is one of the better free ones, and I chose it because it was WordPress 2.6 compatible, with support for widgets, gravatars and a few other features. Yes, Jason convinced me to upgrade to WordPress 2.6.

With the extra space, I’ve been able to bring back the JapanSoc web widget and recent comments, as well as keeping the 20-man “Most Comments” list which I use as a dynamic blogroll.

I hope you like the theme. I do have another surprise up my sleeve, but I’ll keep you waiting for a while. ;)

    I like it Nick. I like the photos of you on the front page, and how they change all the time. Want to help me update my blog? Haha, didnt think so!

      As long a you’re leaving comments with same email address that you used to sign up with at Gravatar, it will show up… but there is a delay after signing up, maybe even a few hours.
