WPArena Founded

Welcome, WordPress Lovers. Here is another addition of WParena.com in the WordPress community. The site has just launched with very few articles. I installed a default WordPress Theme and here is the first site logo.

WordPress Arena Theme Changed

After looking at the old theme that was on this site for over 6 months I decided to add a little color. My thinking when I choose the original theme was to keep it as simple looking as possible. Trying to focus more on the WordPress guides and less on the design of the site. Well, I just got tired of seeing all those nice colorful blogs I visit and decided to make a change. The theme is a premium one. I changed very little on it (just the color of the header and links). It is a very easy theme to tweak and seems to work very well so far. Any thoughts or tweaks on the current theme are welcome. Here is our new logo

New Look and Design For WPArena

After a few months of procrastination, WordPress Arena has finally got the theme update. Although I am not all that pleased with the new theme yet I will continue to tweak it. The other major change is a what you can’t see and that is the new database running the WordPress site.
After a few years of WordPress updates and trying just about every plugin that I thought looked cool the site was running very slow. Well at least the WordPress dashboard was running slow and not all options worked correctly withing the dashboard. So I started to research how to optimize and clean up the database. When that hit a dead end I decided to take a little more drastic action and use a fresh installation and move the WordPress site to that.
So now everything is running much better, at least in the dashboard. I will try to do a post this weekend, before the big game, and explain how to get your old WordPress blog a new database and not loose anything in the process.
Here is the new Logo

Moved to Genesis Framework

Finally, WPArena has been moved to Genesis Framework. I am very excited to see the user feedback.
So now I will continue to transform the new theme to something completely new that hopefully become Genesis Best Child Theme. Funny how I can get a custom theme done for clients much faster than I can for myself… I may never finish!
If you don’t like anything or want to leave a feedback, please don’t hesitate to contact us. It will help us to improve the user-experience and a better WordPress site.
