New look, same content

Just updated my blog with a new green theme, Corpgreen from Blog Oh Blog. I think I’ve tweaked appropriately, such as changing the RSS feed URL in the welcome.php file, but do let me know if you see anything amiss.

I also got the Identicons plugin working again, which are those neat icons for a comment that look like quilt blocks to me. They’re designed using an algorithm based on the IP address of the visitor, but can’t directly identify the person.

I’m thrilled with WordPress themes because of the really simple, straightforward way of separating format from content. I learned alot about CSS and the theme by using the Web Developer plugin for Firefox to visualize the div boxes.

Let’s just say, themes are complex, but can be broken down into their parts pretty easily once you have the visual tools you need.

    Anne,
    I love the new design! Very fresh, nicely segments content, and the green hues really compliment each other.

    Thanks Stewart! I was reminded of the lovely Wikipatterns green grass on the cover of the book, which I love, and it just seemed green and fresh.
