This week marks the two year anniversary of this blog!
And what better way to celebrate than with a make-over?
I’ve decided to switch my theme, even though I really liked my old theme, I was starting to feel a bit cramped.
Some of my tutorials were hard to view in such a small space. I’m hoping that by gaining some width my tutorials will feel less squeezed.
With this new theme I see my life getting a bit easier, as well. For some time, I’ve been going through my posts and adding
<more> tags so that only a portion of the post is visible on the main page. This is time consuming, and I often forget.
Speaking of time consuming… I finally figured out how to get my posts together with similar topics in one page. Before I would spend time working with tables and doing it all by hand (and usually not updating it often enough). I just learned about category-pages. Now every post with that category goes on that page automatically. No work for me!
Well, actually there is some initial work, because in the past I wasn’t able to wrap my head around when to use tags and when to use categories. Now I’m finally getting it, and of course I wasn’t doing it correctly. So I have some behind the scenes work to do there. But once I clean that up… well, then my work is done because the future posts will be tagged and categorized correctly.
Oh and one more piece of work for me is that I need to go through and pick featured images, because sometimes it picks some weird ones for the post image. My previous theme didn’t use that feature, so I’ll have to fix a few posts.
Whew… basically, I’m saying that my blog will be in a state of flux for a short time while I fix a few minor things. I’m also still deciding if I like this color palette.
For the most part everything should be working fine. Some of the menu items at the top of the page will have a sparse number of posts in them until I’ve finished fixing those categories. And the post images (buttons?) may be not the ideal image for a time, but they are still working links.
Soooo… what do you think of my new theme?
Until next time…
