A new theme!

by Suw on September 21, 2008

You may have noticed, if you visit the site regularly rather than read via RSS, that I have changed the theme I’m using. I recently found Thesis, by Chris Pearson, a WordPress theme that’s been designed specifically to be adapted. It’s very easy to put in a background image and to use a custom stylesheet, and there are all sorts of options that I have yet to delve into.

When CSS became the de facto way to specify the design elements of a web page, I was in the process of leaving the design side of the web, so I deliberately decided not to learn it so that I could make a clean break from that chapter of my life. It was the post-crash era, when there were plenty of designers around who actually knew lots about design, unlike me who had mainly been making it up as I went along.

Of course now I find that it would be really handy to know CSS… oh, the irony! Don’t be surprised if you visit the site one day and it all looks weird – if the weirdness remains, please email me as there’s every likelihood that I could break something and just not realise!

Meantime, I hope you like the new look, and thanks to Gep for the wonderful photo.
