Living in the past, with WordPress

Status

Quick update – looks like the theme I had (Twenty Eleven) is the only one that does more or less what I want out of the box. So after an afternoon of back and forth I decided to make do with this theme for the moment and make the best out of it.

Mostly I’ve tweaked the layout to be a bit more sensible and consistent, and added some pictures so it looks more lived-in around here. May as well get settled in.

This theme is sick!

Yeah, radical, man!  … or something.

Being unwell today and stuck at home, it seems like a good opportunity for me to try out some new themes for my blog, now that it’s settled down a bit and I have a better idea of what I’m looking for in a theme.

Although it’s possible to preview themes on your own content before applying them, as far as I can tell, there’s no way of editing the pages within a theme preview; you need to go ahead and apply it to then be able to see what page templates are available and so forth.

With these things in mind, there may be some radical (see what I did there?) fluctuations in the appearance of this site for a little while as I test things out.  If you happen to load one of the variations that involves two very large panels with my slightly demented photo grinning back out at you – well, you have my sincerest apologies.
