So…uh…things look a little different, don’t they?
There was a pretty substantial update to our site theme today. It moved some things, it added some things, it fixed some things, and then I added and moved some things myself after the fact. I won’t bore you with all of those things, but here are a few you might want to know about.
- The post author’s name is now above the post instead of way the hell down at the bottom, making it simpler for you to figure out which one of us you should be yelling at. If you’re looking for it, it’s above the title heading next to the date and the categories, which have also moved up from the bottom.
- Speaking of yelling at us, the specific leave a comment links on each post seem to have vanished. We didn’t do that. We also didn’t close our comments section. If you want to leave one, click on the post title and the good old form will be underneath, basically where it’s always been.
- Where did the posts a computer thinks you might enjoy thing go? For now, it’s gone. The theme fairies added in a similar posts function, so we’re going to try that out and see how it goes. Having two separate spaces for related posts doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, plus having to use one less plugin might make things load slightly faster.
- Social sharing buttons are back. I found some that shouldn’t be too annoying since they’re specifically designed to be simple and accessible. Feel free to make liberal use of them if we happen to write something you like. They’re under each post and have their own heading so should be nice and easy to find. If you’re reading this from the main page or an archive page of some sort and you don’t see them, click the post title.
As always, there’s a very good chance I’ve screwed something up. If you find that I have, let me know. If I can fix it, I will. If I can’t, I may learn. If I don’t want to, I won’t, at least not until somebody gives me a good reason why I should or a bunch of you make it clear that I’m wrong.
