THEME testing taking place tonight 10pm (aest) which in Vic Time
Hi folks, after 10pm tonight I am going to run some other themes and see how they look and function. As much as I adore my original theme called greyzed. There are some others much more adaptable in terms of size, functions, readability for our bigger screens these days and so on! I can always customise the colours and header etc.
The main things I get from feedback re the look of the site are
- The narrow column could be wider and mean less scrolling
- Better comment management
- Wasted space on left side as one scrolls down
- Text could be bigger (A hint though is in most browsers you can increase the size of the font to your own liking by using Ctrl and the + and – (OR Ctrl and your scroll button on your mouse)
To make the look crisper and easy to read is the main one now it is so popular I guess.
So if you would like to help out and give me some feedback that would be great. I imagine I will test for say 15 minutes a theme, so we can have a look around, make a comment, or reply to one and see how it all goes?
For those who are new to wordpress or don’t use it, here is a link to the themes. Some are very customisable, others not so. They also have premium themes that cost a small amount, but with that comes greater functionality etc
For simplicity and clarity I do like Twenty Eleven But there are several hundred. If would like to see one in action live, ask and we will give it a crack.
The comments and replies are set out much clearer, and notice the width increase in content, means less scrolling down the page…more time for thumbs up and down…
We can see any theme live with the site and all its content instantly, but only one at a time of course!
So if you have some input fire away and we can have a look and see if we can improve. I will sadly give up my theme to move forward! Promise…(I think…)
