I upgraded the default theme to WordPress’s Twenty Twelve. As you can see it’s pretty neat and clean. I’ve made a couple of customizations.
I was getting a little tired of the plain look for this site so I’ve added the banner photos back into the header. I’ve also changed the typefaces to Verdana and Georgia.
I’ve updated to WordPress 3.3.
I’ve always viewed choosing a font to be a brief formality before I type up a document or start a website.
I’ve upgraded and made a few changes to the new default them but I think I’m finally giving up control over all the little functional details.
Adam’s artificial habitat was way overdue for some restyling.
If you noticed the Snack Bus theme is missing, it’s because I need to bring my template files up to date with the new version of WordPress.
Instead of writing I’ve been updating the site’s appearance.
I’ve installed a new contact form.
I’ve been trying out NextGen Gallery, a WordPress photo gallery plug-in.
A perfect project for a rainy weekend.
I’ll be getting back to basics and focusing on making Adam’s artificial habitat accessible and sharp-looking again.
Well, this is one of those crisis-opportunity moments.
The functions in WordPress 2.7.1 for inserting images into posts are deranged and at odds with my style sheet.
I need something on the home page that will lead into the blog, so I’ve moved the latest excerpt up to the top.
Now I am posting excerpts from the last five posts on the home page in what I hope is a more attractive format.
It took a fair amount of research and trial and error on my part to make these changes but it looks like nothing, right?
As you can see, I’ve been monkeying around with a new “prairie” theme to the website. The seashore theme was boring me. It was a little too monochromatic. I happened to have a good picture of prairie flowers with colors I liked, so I went with it. Hope you like it.
There’s something wrong with my photo album plug-in, again. I think it has something to do with the host company upgrading the server software. Anyway, it’s going to slow down my posting of new photos. I will correct it as soon as I can.
I’m working on some custom “smilies” for this blog.
