This file contains a brief summary of changes and indicates when they were made. Changes are listed starting with the most current date. We started this page way back when and have decided it's a great way to help keep our history. Used to be everyone kept a log of changes. Now it's gone out of fashion. We still like the idea. Besides helping us, this page should make it easier to find anything new we've posted. Many thanks to all of you who are and have been visiting our site over the years.

September 12-18, 2022
Rework menu and navigation options to expose content, make the site regular, clean up, and make way or make a place for new content. Need to keep menu items on menu or they aren't accessible on mobile. Get rid of junk. Clean up Categories and Tags too. Still have quite a bit more to do, but this is a huge leap forward. So much cleaner.
June 29, 2022
Cleanup. Remove flip book (too slow) and repoint to PDFs. Rework Services again. Have web page samples. Need other samples. More consolidation and streamlining of content. Publish newsletter Weaving the Threads. Collect and republish content.
May 25, 2022
More old is new again. Back in the 90's, I'd hosted a discussion board on this site. Some part went well. Others didn't. I took it down. I've just added one. But this time, I have a different goal and a different approach. Same tech. :-)
April 16, 2022
Old is new again. Updating the menu navigation to simplify it while adding more content? Yes. Study, Practice, Refinement has been my tagline for years. Long past time I used it for the menus. Martial Arts => Study, Classes => Practice, and Teacher's Notes => Refinement. Moved Our Publications under About Us. Needs more work. Secondary navigation via breadcrumb is working, too. Breadcrumb enabled on mobile. Adding pages to aggregate content and use categories to organize it automagically. Used a PHP function to allow adding categories to everything. Works like a dream.
March 20, 2022
Every time I update this list, it brings back so many memories. This year, one of my goals is to bring some of that history to life via photos and stories. I wanted this site to be a living archive when I created it. So far, for the last 25 years, that is working out nicely. Updates this time to increase the font size and generally to look at how to better display what I have. The current menus are ok but not great. Need a better strategy for navigation. Also need to make things for purchase and class registration more visible. Updates to Xingyi Twelve Animals. I'm teaching. Need new photos. Add more information on the page.
October 29, 2021
Consolodate items under about us. Need to work on profiles. Update "How we got started" with 25 year anniversary heading and image of red chair.
October 22, 2021
Big milestone. Had wanted to have a publisher's page with lots of covers and links and things. Have it now. Finally. Multiple books on the menu too. Pages for print, ebook (online flip book) and ePub (downloadable). More to do. Removed pages for Going East or West. That was a goal.
October 17, 2021
Bringing back something I had phased out: Publishing and Consulting Services, but updated for today. New Services menu (again). Restructured and and simplified menu access to expose more content. Some file cleanup still to do. Need to have a look at the Chinese menus. Cross linked services to my portfolio. Working to collect and organize all the files I have. Some will be posted to either my portfolio or here on wudang.com. Some as pages or additions to pages. Some as e-books.
December 26, 2020
Not so much done thru the site this year. Lots of videos on YouTube. Have a bit of cleanup to do on the backend and with content. Planning to finish and upload taiji videos - one by one. More planned for next year. Quite a bit more.
August 4, 2020
Classes and schedule updates.
April 6, 2020
Backend cleanup. Fix (update and get rid of old) theme. Lots of little things. Preparing for more content.
March 29, 2020
Added classes and enrollment options. Completed first live streams last week. Start regular broadcasts 3/30/2020. Equipment is a problem, but as long as I can do as much as what I have now, I'm going to try to keep it going. Lots and lots of work to do.
February 3, 2020
Added more videos, quite a few in January. Some for each. And there are more. Added Member options for people to pay for content access and class discounts. Added weekly schedule to Classes page.
December 31, 2019
Added videos to Qigong menu - making it complete (for now) => Each section has something in it. Looks good.
December 30, 2019
More navigation changes to allow for new content. Removed sidebar menus - taking up too much space and needed something that would generate the list of topics dynamically. Got it. And added the ability to only show that navigation widget to logged in users. Tested. Just what I needed. Still have to work out something for the longer lists, especially taiji. Plugin has a pro version with an accordion feature. Even that will not be workable for taiji - 40+ items on the list. May need a one page list with navigation to each item or something like that for taiji. For now, what I have will work to get this going. Restored the mega-menu in English - the columns look nice on mobile. Plan to do the same for the Chinese after I finish all the English menus and new pages/sections.
November 5, 2019
Making major navigation changes to surface content with sidebar menus and less nesting. Lots of buried content. More pages in each channel. There's a lot of content that isn't up on the site that could be and a lot that is buried in nested links. Time to clean that up a bit. Didn't realize just how much content I have.
October 14, 2019
Have made a few changes to the overall mission of the site and what it should be doing. Once the plans I have now are completed (maybe 2-3 years) there won't be much more done, not by me anyway. This site was originally intended to be a library, an archive where we would store all the essays and handbooks Prof. Liu had written. He would manage the Chinese sections and I would handle the English (and all the technical work and all the business work). That's not what happened. For the past 10 years or so, he hasn't contributed. I'd ask. He'd be busy. So many times I lost count. Even for simple things. In 2018, I went to China to talk with him about the site, the plans we'd discussed for our work, and to make a plan for adding new materials. He told me that he was busy and did not want to do anything more. He was retired. No surprise that a 67 year old wants to retire. The problem was that he'd repeatedly told me for 15 years that once he retired, he'd have time to work on our publications. That, and a couple of other things resulted in some serious issues that he does not want to resolve. So, I made some decisions. First is that I am going to keep the Chinese materials as they are, but not make any effort to keep the English side in sync. If I post something or do something new with the English, I'm not going to change the Chinese to match. Second, I'm going to pursue some of the business initiatives that I've been trying for years to get him to do -- I wanted to feature him out of respect. But in the 10+ years I've asked, he never seemed to have time to make recordings or help with translations. He was busy. Finally, no pun intended, I'm going to build out the library that I have wanted to build. It will be me in the videos and photos and maybe some of my students. It's going to be my legacy. I like what I have planned. I hope someone I don't know 50 years from now likes it too.
June 17, 2018
Removing the classes section. Adding a new video section - question/answer clips. Plan to add subtitles in English and Chinese.
Didn't track. Mostly small changes. Set up classes with the idea of having an online school. No interest. My presentation? site navigation? Cultural shift?
August 31, 2016
Major upgrade and changes. Migration to WordPress platform. Added slider, reworked much of the 150+ pages and set up the framework for booking classes online. Plan is to offer online and in-person classes. Milestone this year: 20 years 1996-2016.
March 9, 2015

Seems I missed a few years... :0 In 2013, we moved to Drupal as a platform. Added portfolio pages to the Business section in 2014. Still working on cleanup and content migration. Focus has been elsewhere. Would like to see everything cleaned up, no orphan pages, and any errors corrected this year. Getting all the content moved into Drupal may still take a while. There's quite a bit, including books.

Added metatags to block slander by ODP from being displayed for site. Hope it works. The Open Directory Project is all about slander and prejudice by the so-called editors. They are clueless, have no crediblity and take no responsibilty for deliberately spreading mis-information.
