I’m redoing this site

So, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the site looks a little different. I started putting together a theme and next thing I knew it was six hours later. I haven’t even eaten dinner, and I have to go to bed now.

So anyway, a few of the reasons for the new look are, (a) I hated the old theme’s way of making the blog sections just an “archive” with “excerpts” instead of full posts, (b) I just wanted to make my own theme for my own site, (c) it’ll be easier to add new things since I’m not constrained by the previous theme’s design, and (d) I wanted my old eyes to be able to read the damn text.

I’m not much of a web designer, so the page will look very simple. And the bottom even states, page “design” by. I’ll get around to the rest of it later on. This theme is not yet responsive, so when you look on your phone you’ll be all WTF I HAVE TO SCROLL THROUGH ALL THIS?! but it’s okay because I’ll get it all fixed up and pretty for you.

Well, maybe not pretty, but at least doable on a mobile phone.

The problem with this new theme

I just installed this theme called Yoko, by elmastudio.

yoko-theme

It looks pretty and everything, but . . . . oops . . . . since I’ve used the banner image of each post as its thumbnail (because that’s how the old theme operated) . . . well, it’s like too much image duplication. And I am not a fan of this.

Although I am a fan of kitten randomly jumping up on chair arm and chirping at me.

Multisite: Completely Unnecessary for Me

So I was trying out this thing where I would use the WordPress Multisite capability just on myself.

It’s pointless.

So, I’m going to figure out how to compress everything back into WordPress Singlesite. Whee.
