Upgrading to Drupal 6 and a new blog design

74 comments

Over the weekend I upgrade this blog to Drupal 6 so I could take advantage of all the advancements that have been made in Drupal core and some modules that only have releases for 6.x. While doing the upgrade, I also decided that I'd create a new theme because I'd never really liked the old one.

I'm not much of a designer, so I took a lot of the images and CSS from the Admire Gray theme, by WorthaPost, which I love, but actually turned it into a Zen sub-theme because I really like some of Zen's unique features. I also took a lot of inspiration from CopyBlogger, ShoeMoney and ProBlogger for certain elements.

I still need to clean up a few things like the comments, but overall I'm really happy with how it turned out, except for my lame attempt at a logo which looks a bit dull and boring. If there are any designers that want to give some suggestions, I'm listening!
