Just playing around with the general look. As much as I liked the minimalism of the previous theme, the font size of the date was larger than I’d like. The trick is to find a 2 column display that is:
- 2 columns: posts on the left, index stuff on the right
- displays all relevant info for post: comments, tags, date
- looks ok on fullscreen and 2/3 screen (my usual browser size)
On that last note, I tend to use 2/3 of my screen (left to right) for the browser and the right hand third to display email (column style). This is particularly handy for my work environment, plus I’ve never been fond of applications that take up the entire screen. One annoyance of wordpress is that in order to write a new post, I have to maximise the browser window otherwise the options overlap. I like the look of the new theme, mostly, though, as is often the case, I can only “see” half of the right hand column; I can however, see another to be useful. There were a couple of 2 column options that were fluid to the extent that the entire blog was displayed in my reduced browser window, alas they didn’t quite grab me, or lacked some other element. I think I’d still prefer a theme that displays the date at the top of each post. Will mull on it some more.
