The design saga continued

Tonight I went to Adelaide Hackerspace and spent almost 3 hours working on making this blog better. Some of the lovely people there patiently answered my questions whilst I stumbled my way through.  To completely honest the whole process all got complicated and too hard. I’m using WordPress for my blog and bought my domain name (the name of the blog) through WordPress. I was hoping to keep the management of this blog simple. Whilst the management is easy, getting the design right is.

In the land of Worpress there are only 213 themes I can choose from, some of the themes are a free.  A theme is what decides the layout, structure, fonts, background image or colour and much more about your website. The 213 themes are all adaptable but only within a limited range.  Sadly the theme I really wanted isn’t available via the official WordPress website so I couldn’t use it with out a complicated process I didn’t have the patience or skills to do. This means I have to adapt an approved WordPress theme to get the website I want. 

So Dear Reader please bear with me while I continue to learn about adapting WordPress themes and designs, each time you visit the blog may look a little different. Hopefully it won’t be too long until I will find a theme that I like and that you like.
