158th Website Relaunched

Sorry for having been mostly silent lately, but I have been hard at work relaunching my America’s Army clan site, The 158th Regimental Combat Team.

Our clan has used the same basic site design for the last 18 months. It was time to do something different. I spent the last couple months coming up with a new design. The previous design was dark and very AA related. I wanted something less dark and more professional looking. Hopefully, I have accomplished this.

Another goal of mine was to change the site CMS from php-nuke (yuck) to another system. I chose WordPress, which this site runs on, for the new CMS. It has better security and is more efficient. It also gives me the ability to add some new features that while possible, would be more difficult to do in nuke.

If you get a chance, stop by The Bushmasters and let me know what you think of the new site.

Next on my list of things to do is a complete redesign of the Cruise Talk Central website. The traffic at that site has picked up considerably and it’s time to update the offerings we have there for our visitors. The new site will look less like a blog and more like a full featured cruise fan site. Stay tuned for more details…


  1. Steve,

    Your 158th site looks very nice and very professional, although, I have to admit that while I like the bright look, it seemed like your old site had a bit more color in terms of graphics. Also, the colors for the numbers in your “scrims” records block are a bit hard to read on my screen…..(at least the W’s and D’s). The green and blue seem to not stand out enough….maybe I just need to put on my glasses!

    Great work!

  2. No, that was on my list… I have darkened them up now… thanks for the nice words!
