So new layout because the old one was getting boring. Some of my previous themes have been more complex so I tried going for something more minimal, back-to-basics. To go with the new layout of the main, the pages got a nice spring cleaning as well; Themes & Pages Masterlist with the ability to look through the themes based on the main features, the FAQ with updated questions/answers, Customize Options Explained (General Theme Documentation) and I now have a proper Credits page.
The new theme blog also doubles as preview for the next theme I’ll be releasing (probably some time at the end of this week).
I’ll be moving (most of them are done) the codes of my themes and pages from Pastebin/Ge.tt to Google instead. Mainly because I reached my limit as free user on Pastebin and the increased demand of another host.
This will start as a trial basis and if there are no problems, I’ll carry on using this method.
Thank you for everyone who completed it and I’ve now taken it and will be looking at the results. I probably won’t post it all but I’ll have a look at any interesting points.
There were a few messages about the arrows disappearing when you delete the extra slide, that’s a coding fault on my side so I’ve updated it.
If you don’t want to re-download the codes, you can manually change it by looking for this code (near the very bottom):
and replacing it with:
You might have noticed that my sort of semi-hiatus turned into a full two month hiatus. Sorry about this and hopefully I’ll have some new themes soon.
There is a huge backlog in my inbox, 217 messages to be precise, and there is just no way I’m going to get through everything. I’ll be going through the messages of the last week (or so) and any that I can reply to privately I will, if there are any common queries, I’ll answer some of the anons as well. After that, I’ll clear my inbox altogether and if you’re still having problems, you’ll have to message me again.
I’m sorting through the responses of the questionnaire/survey I posted at the beginning of the year (if you haven’t done it already, it’s here) and it’s quite interesting. It seems, The Road Home (214), is the most popular but at the same time there’s a definite preference of the full height sidebar over headers and topbars. There’s a demand for more tags/navigation style blog pages - something I’m not really great at, but will try to produce more of in the future.
During my hiatus, I started seven different themes and basically gave up on them all because I either ran out of ideas or they just weren’t turning out how I wanted them to be. What I’m saying is, it’s probably going to be a while before a new theme is posted. I need to revamp this blog first (a new theme that I’m only halfway through) and I only have one other old nutty layout that’s close to being ready.
