WPscoop The WordPress Social News Site Launches v2.0

WPscoop a social news and bookmarking site dedicated to the popular topic of wordpress has recently launched a new design and updated their Drupal/Drigg system. Wpscoop was one of the early adopter sites that launched using the Drigg system and the recent improvements to the site clearly show that Drigg is a system to be taken seriously if your willing to spend some time developing your project.

WPscoop originally launched back in late September 2008 with the aim of providing the WordPress community a location to discover and share great wordpress related content. Since WPscoops initial launch the look and feel of the site remained pretty much the same for nearly ten month’s with and edited version of a stock Drupal theme titled “Marinelli” as it’s design.

On the 25th July however the WPscoop owner Stuart launched a new version of the site to the public which sports a brand new custom design along with a major site upgrade. In a blog post at WPscoop Stuart explains more about the sites update and also writes about why Drigg was chosen as the system that would power WPscoop.

Currently WPscoop is running the latest version of Drupal 6 along with the latest version of Drigg, before the upgrade WPscoop was originally based upon Drupal v5. Below are a couple of screenshots showing the change in design.
