It’s a Start, At Least

As you may have noticed, I haven’t been publishing lately. That’s mostly due to the uncooperative weather we’ve had until the last few days, but, unfortunately, I’ve also resisted for other, more technical reasons.

Somewhere around Thanksgiving a received a notice from Google that my site no longer met their standards for viewing on iPads and phones and that I would have to upgrade it to ensure that I was listed where I normally was in their search engine. There’s not much reason writing an entry if no one is going to read it, but I was less worried by how many readers I might get than I was enjoying the Holidays.

I’ll have to admit that I wasn’t looking forward to picking a new theme and adjusting the CSS to make sure that previous entries looked the same way they originally did. To ensure that new entries would like old entries and that old entries would look like I had originally intended them to look I would have to write a “child” theme, something I managed to do years ago but had also managed to forget since I did it years ago.

Today I was reminded why I had passively resisted so long. I spent a whole Saturday redesigning my site and I’m still not done with it. I spent hours trying to see how different themes looked and how much I could customize them only to find that some of them distorted the photos when the width of the page was adjusted.

For now, at least, what you see is what you get until I can find a CSS book and readjust the text settings.

  1. Wow, I’d better check and see if I have any messages. If your blog was out of date maybe mine is too. I haven’t updated it since 2017.
