While I loved the old theme this new one was just too good to pass up.
I love the flow of it, and the part that sold me is the pictures being placed on display first. While scrolling around my own site I found my eyes gravitating to the large pictures. This is important as I want to catch my readers, You lovely friends, and keep them interested.
The final thing that sealed the deal was the fact that it does not display dates until you open the post. I have my first post Welcome as a sticky. Some of the themes would display the date which I don’t want. It is the first thing you see and if you see the February 27, 2012 first, well I’m afraid you think I’m not writing anything.
And that just won’t do.
The only problem is that the font is to light. But I really don’t want to darken the background it just won’t turn out pretty. I’ve tried.
So with my new theme and its amazing look I shall conquer my next few post with zeal!
I finally figured out how to make the font readable. I’d tell you but it makes me feel stupid for not realizing it sooner.
Don’t worry I am punishing myself by going through all 30 post and righting my wrongs.
Although, I do agree the font is too light there is a way to adjust the background. Under Appearance you highlight background and from there you can actually upload your own personal image…if you wanted to, you could just go into Photoshop and select a CMYK, or RGB color that is a little darker than this light gray of yours, save it, and then upload it to your wordpress account.Also, for those that would be new to checking out your Blog might get confused on where to even start. I know the theme is to have big display pictures and then the description (sort of like the main page of wordpress their theme is like yours), but even I had to ask myself, “Okay, what is the newest post she’s done.” Although for me, I am following your blog and know which ones are new, but for open visitors they might have trouble.
I actually tried quite a few things to get the text to show more but didn’t like any of them. Also to counter the which post game first I placed at the bottom of my page a latest column so people can see from there.
Thanks for the input, though.
I like it…its a very nice set up but i agree its kinda hard to find your latest post i had to stop and look at them for a min to figure out which one i havent read yet. the text i dont mind so much but i think thats maybe cause i agree with you on the fact nothing else would look right.
I also like this look because its kind of like my mind. Ideas are always floating in unordered pieces that I never know which came first. But I can see how new people would be come confused.
