Thank you to all the lovely souls who took the time to look over my changed blog and comment. I cannot thank you enough for your help!
Big thank you to: The Dog Rules, Dr Wage, Dutch Goes the Photo!, Third Time Lucky!, The Runaway Palate, and, an especially big thank you to Dream Bigger, who went as far as to email me with extensive notes on what she found. Thank you all!
In the end, sadly, I had to ditch that theme because the errors that existed in it were unfixable by one unfamiliar with more complex code.
HOWEVER! I have found a theme that I think addresses the issues raised, namely:
- The hovering tabs at the top were not accessible when clicking on a lower rank link. They are stacked in my menu so that there are three parents and then 5 to 2 children below them. If you clicked on the page of parent 2, parent 1’s children no longer dropped. I am not tech savy enough to fix that without knowing how to alter the build of the theme. So, I lose. So sad. BUT, the new theme fixed that. Please click around on the tabs and see that they work.
- The stretched image and non pop of the blog title. This new theme fixed those both wonderfully I feel.
- I had to abandon the old image because it is white and, as all things have drawbacks, the new theme will not allow me to alter the colour of the text for the blog title and quote section. I am sure there is a way around this, but I chose to rise above it and pick a new background. What do you think of it? I am going for a celtic theme because I am Irish (don’t let my last name fool you…) Below are the other two images I milled over. Do you have a celtic or Irish image that you think might go better? Would you like some credit on my blog for designing some of the images? I am all for giving people credit, please submit anything you like and I will look it over!
- The small text. The text on this site is bigger. I fear it might be a might bit too large, but the readability is still good for me. What do you think?
Once again, I would love feedback on how THIS change now strikes you. I am going to keep hammering at this until the website looks and works right both for me and you wonderful people! After all, if you hate it, you won’t come back… if you don’t come back I will have to go and cry in the corner. You don’t want that now, do you???
