5 stages of the PGabor.com website

PGabor.com is no longer a minor: Happy 21st Anniversary!

I bought the PGabor.com domain exactly 21 years ago today and launched the first version of the site two weeks later. Here is a quick summary of how the site has changed over the years:

The first version was a hand-coded HTML, with five major sections. The screenshots below, inlcuding this from May 2000, were saved from the Wayback Machine which cut off the top.

A year later I built, edited, and provided all the content for “Index.California”, a local, California edition of Index.hu, a Hungarian portal. So all the “I.CA” notes on the August 7, 2003 screenshot below refer to articles I wrote for that, now gone, website.

Next, I moved from hand coding to the first popular blogging platform: Movable Type. Here is how the site looked on it on February 19, 2005.

In the next stage of the site, in 2011 I opted to have a cover page with the (then) essential information about myself:

Finally, in 2015 I changed the whole thing to a basic simple, clean WordPress site, which is what you see now.
