Welcome! DIYP has a new look

Yes, you are still looking on the same blog. We just got  slight facepagelift.

drupal to WP

Back in the first few years, we (or actually I) were posting 2-3 posts a week and running a moonshine operation after hours of my daily job. This changed at 2010 when I jumped the gun and went full job with DIYP.

Now, ever since DIYP was born, about 8 years ago, it was using  Drupal as a platform. But things has changed. DIYP was getting bigger, covering more topics and getting more traffic. We made a change to WordPress, to both support the growing team and reflect the editorial change we are going through which gives a focus to photography in general (while still keeping DIY with a warm place in our hearts as a category).

We are still ironing things out so if you see anything weird please let us know.

P.S. – expect a Drupal vs WordPress for photographers post soon.

    Bring back the old site!!! The header frame takes up too much screenrealestate, and the dammed BACK TO TOP at the bottom is very distracting, and covers content.

  • Richard Terborg

    Love it man!!! :D :D

  • Abhishek Nair

    good looking site

  • Kay O. Sweaver

    I generally like it, but the new logo looks like it says DY photography, which I guess could be a good imperative; “Do photography!”

    Looks good though was slow to load yesterday; OK now. Minor detail; your DIYPhotography logo gets cut off to the right unless I use full screen. Google Chrome browsing

    • Simon Hunter

      yip, logo issue referred to by Mike is same for Firefox.
      Still struggling to understand why the favicon looks like a G, in fact is a G when saved to the bookmarks bar?
