As you may have noticed, I went ahead and changed the theme for the blog. It’s a little darker than I’d prefer and the background isn’t the one I really want but until I can get my computer working and access all my images and files, I can live with it.
In the meantime, I’ve made a couple of minor (and probably unnoticeable) modifications to this theme to personalize it a little more. There are a few other tricks that I want to incorporate from other themes and I’ve been trying to track down the php code by switching themes back and forth over the past few days so if you happen to see thematic oddities you’ll know why.
Hrrm. I suppose I should ask here in case anyone actually knows and can save me the effort. The main thing I’ve been looking at is changing my Archive from the increasingly loooong list that it has become into a drop down menu. I know it can be done as there are many examples in various themes but I haven’t been able to narrow down the code that’ll accomplish it. If you know please share, I’ll buy you a pony.
I originally thought I wouldn’t ever have a use for a three column style theme but with me blogging so much recently I think it actually might be the best thing for me. Plus with the lack of any other pages on the website it’ll have to act as the navigation panel
About the only thing I can’t get to work was the Snap Shots pop-up plugin. For some reason it just doesn’t seem to work with this theme. Not that I’m complaining because I’m somewhat torn about it to begin with. Part of me liked it but it was sometimes a pain to click on a specific link, or at least it was in the old theme. This one seems to have the links spaced out a little better so it could be useful if I could ever get it working.
Anyway, I just thought I’d blather a bit about the site for no apparent reason other than I can. I’d like to hear your thoughts though. What’s your opinion on this theme? And what about snapshots? Should I bother trying to fix it or just go without.
Speak! I will listen.
