WordPress is the most popular blogging platform out there. WordPress has lots of great looking themes available for free. Serendipity is also a great blogging platform but it does not have the same range of excellent themes or templates that WordPress does.
Converting from Serendipity to WordPress
Hire me to convert your Serendipity CMS (s9y) powered website or blog to WordPress. As part of the conversion process the following parts of your s9y blog will be imported into a brand new WordPress installation:
BlackLens serendipity template
It has been a long time since I created a template for serendipity (s9y). BlackLens is an original two column template with a horizontal top navigation bar, customizable footer and a fancy header.
Minimizing duplicate content in a serendipity blog
Serving the same textual content on different website pages
can be very bad from a search engine optimization point of view. This is because it makes it difficult to rank well in the search engine results pages for that content
and dilutes the benefits of incoming links to it.
Most Content Management Systems (CMS) and blogging systems in particular have a tendency to display the same content in multiple places. Unfortunately serendipity(s9y) is no exception. In this post I look at how to minimize duplicate content in an s9y powered blog.
Ornate serendipity template
Ornate is an open source template by freecsstemplates.org that I recently ported to serendipity. Its got a nicely decorated left sidebar. Red and white are the primary colours of this theme.
