MicroB Version 1.1

Posted on January 2011 at about 2:53 AM by hwa

MicroB is the theme that I am using now, it’s still in beta but now has been bumped to version 1.1. There aren’t much changes compare to previous one, the major one would be adding the ability to separate content design under specified categories, in my case would be the MicroBlog category.

I hope you guys like the new design, should you encounter any bugs, please contact me and let me know about it, a screenshot will be most appreciated! Thanks!!

An Approach To Microblogging

Posted on January 2011 at about 5:44 AM by hwa

As you can see we have new theme here, a very narrow single column with the sidebar moved to the bottom.

With this new theme, it’s actually an effort of moving towards Microblogging, as you all know I’m not very active in updating my blog, might as well just do it through microblog, where everything is simple and hopefully, only one line.

There are still a few things that need to be tweaked, one for example is that blogs generated by tweets, the title should be removed, as there are no point for a title if the post is from a tweet.

Regardless, we’ll see if this will encourage me to update blog more frequent or not, hopefully yes. 🙂

Snow In 2010

Posted on December 2010 at about 3:48 AM by hwa

Every year in the month of December, hwa2u.com will start snowing.

This year, it is the same, the same old snow that fall every year, for one whole month, until the next year.

Enjoy the snow… 🙂

New Theme, New Beginning!

Posted on October 2010 at about 4:56 AM by hwa

It’s been quite some time since the last time I updated my blog, sorry about that. Anyway, as you can see today we have a brand new theme up and running! 🙂

The theme was inspired from My Envision 1.2 by Tatoon, but was heavily modified and CSS was rebuild from scratch.

I’m still testing out the theme though, so if you found any bugs or malfunctioning of the theme, please do contact me.

I hope you guys like the theme, feel free to voice out what you think about the theme.

Better Mobile Theme

Posted on May 2010 at about 12:58 AM by hwa

Just updated my WordPress mobile theme, not using the Carrington Mobile theme anymore.

I’m using the WordPress Mobile Edition plugin by Crowd Favorite, and because of how the WordPress Mobile Edition works, it allow me to use any standard WordPress theme for my mobile theme.

I’m now using the mobile theme by BlogOhBlog. It’s a very simple theme, straight forward and easy to customize, and I customized the theme as much as I need.

The reason I want to change to new mobile theme is because the Carrington Mobile doesn’t seems to fit very well on a phone screen that’s smaller than iPhone screen width, which is 320 pixels in width. Beside, I don’t really like the grey color of the theme.

You can take a peep at my mobile theme by pointing your mobile browser to http://blog.hwa2u.com. Any comments, bugs or suggestions are most welcomed. 🙂

WP Cumulus

Posted on February 2010 at about 4:35 PM by hwa

Got a new plugin for my blog, it’s the WP Cumulus by Roy Tanck. 😉

WP Cumulus is a plugin that collect your tags and display it in a very nice rotating 3D Flash sphere, it allow you to predefine the amount of tags you want to display. Other than tags, you can also display your blog categories, or even both!! Clicking on the tag or category will take you to the appropriate page.

A lot of customization you can do with WP Cumulus, like the width, font color, background color etc, so you don’t have to worry that WP Cumulus will break your theme.

You can see the WP Cumulus in action at my sidebar.

Got My Twitter!!

Posted on August 2009 at about 1:37 AM by hwa

Here is a little bit of explanation on what is Twitter.

Twitter is a free micro-blogging service that allow user to send out updates messages known as tweets, it’s just a text based post of entry consist of up to 140 characters, it allow the user to post updates from various media such as mobile phone or simply from the official website. Nowadays Twitter has become more and more popular, it can even compete with Facebook now, many celebrities use Twitter to update their latest activities to their fans.

I also just registered a Twitter account!! Now you can follow me or view my latest update at my sidebar there, just below my Shout Box. I’m now looking for a way to link my Facebook and Twitter together, so that whenever I update my Facebook, my Twitter will be updated, and vice versa.

Got A Ribbon For My Blog

Posted on August 2009 at about 2:00 PM by hwa

If you’ve noticed at the upper right corner of my blog, you will see a ribbon there, with a Korean flag in it. Yes I’m going to Korea soon! Not that I want to brag about it but really, I’m just too excited about it! 😛

Now back to the ribbon, I’m thinking of making a different ribbons for different occasions would be a good idea, at least there is something that can decorate my blog, well maybe it’s not necessary to be a ribbon, any other things that’s nice also can put it on my blog, we shall see what I can come out next. But for now, the ribbon is good enough. 🙂

WP Wall

Posted on July 2009 at about 4:52 PM by hwa

I got a brand new shout box at my sidebar, I’m not using my old ShoutBox plugin anymore because it’s too old. Anyway my new shout box plugin is called WP Wall by Vladimir Prelovac, but still I’m going to call it ShoutBox anyway.

Certainly this one is better than the old one, it’s running on AJAX and easy to customize, and the best part is it doesn’t use it own database, instead it using the WordPress build-in comment, so every shout out will be saved as a new comment.

So if you guys want to comment anything and it’s not related to any of my post, please do so in my shout box, thank you!
