New Theme for Ye Olde Blog

Under-ConstructionI like it quite a lot, but there’s plenty of work to be done. First, the tab box is way too tall…I need it smaller with less wasted space. I also need to renovate the right side with the featured articles, with the first two or three displaying images and the rest without. The middle column repeats a post if it’s in more than one category.

But these are mainly quibbles. I really like the way it looks (although the banner needs better than the placeholder that currently resides there), and it will possibly be implemented on the church website I also admin. ┬áIt’s free, is pretty easy to modify, looks quite nice, and uses a lot of the same functions as the previous one.

Now I just need to get back to posting regularly. There are many things on which I want to comment but feel restricted in that the time to craft what is basically a full article is not available. So expect some short snippets in the very near future. I need to work on my self-discipline, and this is just one facet of this pursuit.

    I scrapped the BranfordMagazine theme from last week after determining that it was too tough to tweak. Since the theme writer’s support documents are mostly in German, I decided it was too big of a head-ache to figure out. Pity, I liked the look.

    But I found a better one: the free version of Arthemia. It does most of what the last two (Mimbo and BM) did, and it looks really cool in the process. I wish it’d automatically post images, but the way it does it gives more control on how it looks, so *win*.
