not learning from mistakes

Isn’t it great how even tiny incremental upgrades break everything? Remember how you should never upgrade anything? Well upgrading to WordPress 2.7.1 messes up the K2 theme, apparently, so I’ve had to put up a temporary fix. Worse, there’s something wrong with the style I was using (more specifically), so the site may not look exactly like itself until I take the time to figure out how to fix it.

But nothing’s dramatically different running the “stock” K2 style, so you know your way around.

Update (5:03 PM): I’m messing around with a new theme for a while; the site will probably look weird.

  1. I was actually on the site reading some old entries when the site changed not once, but twice.

    Suggestion, make the middle part with the entries wider. I also wouldn’t mind some colored texts used to highlight links or titles.

  2. This theme is amazing…200+ options, all without having to screw around with inordinate amounts of CSS (despite how simple that is to you CompSci geniuses). I’m probably going to end up with some variant of this.

  3. Definitely need some type of coloration to help indicate major sections. Kinda like the colors in the comments section. I like the simplicity, but it’s a little too simple. Like margins, but the margins look just like the rest of the white space. The logo is different, it needs something to set it out. Title should go at the top of the article area (and put the older navigation link under it). You’ve also left some random administrative text on the right column (you may be working on it right now or something). And why are there 2 search boxes?

  4. “I’m messing around with a new theme for a while; the site will probably look weird.”

    Yes, I’m still messing with it. So no, this is not what it will end up looking like.

  5. actually i was just tryign to piss you off. i dont know what i meant.

    baseballs sucks..
    at first i thought your site got sniped and had squatters on it selling ringtones

  6. If your intention was to make this site look less like a blog, you succeeded. It looks like a squatter site that was made by a computer. “cghm.org isn’t currently owned! get it before someone else does!”

    Put some feeling into it. And put something besides dull easter pastels as the colors.

  7. I can’t remember off the top of my head, but if’n you still allow other authors of articles here, you may want to make that info available on the posts somewhere.

  8. My other authors don’t seem too motivated to utilize their posting ability, but I added the author’s name at the bottom of the post. I tried putting it up under the title of the post but it looked too obtrusive. Let me know what you think.

  9. Can usually tell who the author is based on the subject matter and the approach. Just would be handier to know how to handle the info haha.
