Migrating to the new YugaTech Theme

It has taken longer than expected but tonight we are slowly migrating to the new YugaTech theme and implement the new logo we’ve shared with you before.

So here’s our new logo..

Yugatech 728x90 Reno7 Series

And here’s what the new theme would look like. Our designer and developer will be migrating to this new theme starting this evening and might spill over ’til tomorrow.

Please bear with us as there might be some errors or tweaks that needs to be done as we move along. Let us know if there are serious problems though. It’s still a work in progress.

    Nice theme! but i don’t like the logo tbh. Awesome content tho!

  2. Sa sobrang busy ko ngayon ko lang nalaman nagpalit ka na pala ng theme.. :)

    Nice new theme. It’s brighter and not cluttered. Easier on the eyes. =)

    sobrang bumagal sa browser ko, hindi na smooth ang scrolling.
    at pinapalaki ko pa yung font size para mas madaling basahin.

    Andaming white space na nasasayang dun sa front page; sa preview ng bawat article, mula sa
    “March 06, 2011” hanggang
    “Comments 93 Replies”
    masyadong maliit ang space para sa preview.
    Yung dalawang sidebar sa kanan naman, parang mas lumaki at masyado nang nasa kaliwa yung content.
    Wala na yung focus sa mismong articles.

    The new logo looks really good, pero yung bagong theme mas mababa usability.
    Pwedeng hindi lang ako sanay dahil bago, pero sobrang bagal talaga nung scrolling.

    I remember i disapprove of the feel of the logo. But the overall experience turn out very amazing and cool. Love your blog even more. Glad you include more white spaces.

    More power sir.

  6. I love the new theme Sir Abe.

    hay finally nawala na yung ulo (favicon) sa tab ng browser. To be honest, pag nakikita ko dati yung kalbo na ulo sa taas natatakot talaga ako (sorry, pero it really frightens me)

    Now ang cool ng new theme. Yugatech is deserves a new look, logo and favicon like this as you are the best tech blog in the Phils (i think)

  11. Avatar for UnoPinoy UnoPinoy says:

    i used to, well, not really hate but i don’t like your blog for no apparent reason (than maybe envy?).

    i even sent you not so nice comments here and you responded several times. but hey, here i am, still checking on your blog everyday for almost 4 years i think and i can honestly say that i’m loving all the information you post even if i already read some on other blog sites(i work abroad.

    i love your new theme and you are a very cool person. i will always check your blog and will always be a fan of your site.

    kudos to a better site YugaTech! More power and God bless!:D

    Your fan,

    Hi sir! i love the overall of the new theme for your site just that it is just too bright for me. i hope you would consider toning down a little bit of the brightness. I prefer reading your blog a little darker when i have the whole day in bright sun.
    just my two cents.

  22. Avatar for paulkev09 paulkev09 says:

    I was so surprised when i saw this new theme.
    I felt so amazed because this theme looks cool,clean,colorful and good to the eye. I also noticed that this site loaded faster even if this site is completely revamped. Cheers to the new design and i’ll always love your site no matter how it looks.

    Keep on rocking!

    Like the new theme.

  39. Avatar for Darel Darel says:

    I honestly think you just encountered the smae problem with Engadget when they first migrated into their new theme: The post title font with the big serifs and stuff do not fit into the clean, san-serif layout. Otherwise…

    Nice!! more power!!

  41. Avatar for Valerie Valerie says:

    Wow, I love this better. I can’t wait for your new posts… hope it’s done! : )

  42. Avatar for ADM ADM says:


    The footer Ad box title was erroneously spelled “ADVERTISMENT”.

    Migrating to a new template can be a “bloody” work.


  43. I love the new theme! It’s “brighter” :)

  52. Avatar for jepot jepot says:

    the blue arrow is a little bit attention grabbing than the white colored header title

  53. Avatar for Lendl Tan Lendl Tan says:

    Love it!!♥

  54. Avatar for marc edig marc edig says:

    the site design reminds me of ensogo or those group discount sites.

  55. Avatar for GadgetsPH GadgetsPH says:

    Nice… I like it! Except for the orange coordinated colours in the background. I think it would look better if those were removed. :)

  56. Avatar for luiboowee luiboowee says:

    magbabago din kaya yung thumbnail? hehe, kasi old photo ni Yuga yung nasa bookmarks, medyo freaky eh, hehe.

  57. Avatar for marhgil marhgil says:

    cool new design. like it!

  58. Avatar for Pusang Tulog Pusang Tulog says:

    The design is good, but not quite exceptional… Sorry for this comment, but there are a lot of free WordPress Templates available on the Internet that looks better than this. (That is if yuga is really looking for good aesthetics in design.)

    But functionality wise, I think all that yuga wanted for his blog is all here. So for that, I think the theme designer has done well…

  59. Avatar for Saimon Apor Saimon Apor says:

    Awesome theme! Very neat and the colors looks great!

  63. it’s worth the long wait! :D

  64. Avatar for Jaypee Jaypee says:

    It’s about darn time! Hehe :D

    The new theme/layout is definitely better. Love the colors, looks fresh and very pleasing to the eye.

    Btw, you forgot to update your favicon. One suggestion – add support for threaded comments.

    Congrats Abe! The Creative Dork did a very good job as well. :)

    Actuall for me, I don’t mind the designs, “favicons” i would say and et al. I’m here for the information and advices I need. They say, dont judge the book by its cover but by its contents. =))

  82. Avatar for Jam. Jam. says:

    Yuga, just a suggestion, how about adding disqus commenting system and changing your post title font, oh and the favicon too

  83. Avatar for Teknisyan Teknisyan says:
