After many previews and a handful of installs, I have finally chosen my theme named Suffusion.  The one I was going to choose before this was pretty darn good for a free theme and it looked good, but compared to Suffusion, it lacks the ability to customize it with out being a php/css wizard.

Suffusion has almost too many options that you can choose  in the back end of WordPress.  I say almost because while there is a ton of options, they are fairly clear to understand, even for someone who is new to WP and customizing .css files.  So I give 2 thumbs up and while I am it, 8 more fingers, it’s that great of a theme!

That being said, I have my UT 3 map pages published and all of them have correct links (to the best of my knowledge) except for the Unofficial Greed Maps and the Unreal Old Friend Map Pack.  I will be uploading these files (there are many of them and the packs are fairly big), but they should be good to go by the end of this weekend.

I also hope to have all of the related UT 3 tutorial pages published with pictures in them as well.  Half of my time seems like I am trying to tweak the site’s theme, while the other half is actually spent transferring the content.

This post servers 2 purposes.

First, to let everyone know that I have most of the UT 3 related pages converted.  The 2 remaining steps are to upload/configure the pictures for the individual tutorial and map pages.

I also need to figure out the whole permalink thing.  I would like to just have the name of the post in the link, but when I select the post to view it by itself, it gives me a 404 error page.  I presume I need to figure this out before I start linking to pages on my site?

Second, I just wanted to see what multiple posts looks like with the default theme.  I am having a hard time finding a theme I really like.  With my old web authoring program, I was able to do what I wanted, though I was limited in functionality.

So far with WordPress, I have more functionality, but I am sort of limited in what I can do with the visuals of the site.  With so many themes out there, I am sure I will find one that works “well enough”.  Time will tell.

After a week of waiting, my domain name has been transferred and it’s time to start rebuilding the site.  The downloads may take a bit more time to upload (over 4 GB).

When the inspiration hits me, I will create posts related to mapping on the home page.

If you have any suggestions or comments on how to build a better site related to Unreal Level Design (UT 3 specifically), let me know.
