New Wushu Site!

So we finally have a revamped system via WordPress for our website. My reason for doing this is to make managing a UO webpage much much easier since it manages content for anyone to see old or new stuff without a great hassle. Adding pages is also easy as pie, so I’m very excited to see how this will go.

Later on I’m considering a forum as well. Any takers?

In the mean time I’ll be focusing on importing the old, getting a calender up, and making things just work with this temporary theme.
