I wanted to orient my regular readers to this display theme. There aren’t that many free ones offered once you run WordPress on your own service and I felt I could do more with this one. I was able to add the blue color bars on the sides and easily change the photo at the top. I will do that from time to time, taking advantage of the scenery from my long bike rides.
The default font has been changed so that it depends on what you have on your system and what you have selected for your browser. The order of preference is Palatino, Times and then any serif font.
If any of these posts have comments, they’ll be displayed as a little blue “balloon” on the upper right of the post heading. I’m not thrilled with the huge tag markers at at the bottom but it will take awhile for me to figure out how to change that. I’m not that good with PHP and these theme files are broken down into lots of tiny bits.
The private message input form on the lower right has been tested and works well. What happens is that anything you send that way is handled by the email system on the server itself and is dropped into the inbox for my SoulKiln admin address. I’m still working on a general webform for the rest of this website. However, comments work the same as they do for any WordPress site.
You can make suggestions and I’ll see what I can do. This is your new parish facility, so don’t be afraid to speak up.
By the way, I am told the server is physically located in Washington, DC, which is a major Internet hub with lots of fat pipes. We aren’t hiding from anyone so I’m not worried about government snooping.
