I am pleased to finally roll out the first major website design update since Campfire Chess launched last year! The other design was a modified version of the Sparkling WordPress Theme by Colorlib. It served me well and was relatively easy to maintain, but it started feeling a little too bulky for what I wanted. The new site is designed to be much more lightweight and to facilitate an improved game repository and game presentation. In the old template, the games were immediately posted on the main page and the processing of the PHP and JavaScript could bog down some browsers and mobile devices.

The new update should take care of those issues and present a much more streamlined and modern appearance that will serve well into the foreseeable future.
