Forced to update my blog theme

Saturday, May 16, 2009 20:36 | Filled in geek stuff

It was one of those cascading things.  I wanted to show my tweets on the blog and that created a problem because I had a very old theme that didn’t support all the cool new features of the new WordPress.  Well, actually, I didn’t even have the cool new version of WordPress either.  One thing led to another thing and I find that I had to change everything to get the features I wanted.  At this point most everything I want to work is functional, although I’ll probably still make a few changes yet.  For instance, at the moment I can’t see my custom made header with the cool cartoon shark that is my favorite image.

I suck at graphics and as you can probably see, the old header image doesn’t just plug in:

Old header

Old header

I might have to find someone talented on ITH to suck up to…

    If it helps any, the new theme layout is good. It’s clean, things are aligned that ought to be aligned, and it’s obvious what belongs to what. The typography-fu is strong here.

    Thanks for that. I do like the aesthetic of this theme, I just feel bad to lose the custom header graphic from the old one. The truth is that I virtually never blog any more and the whole thing will probably die after this year’s WSOP, so clean and legible is really all one needs.
