Change of Theme

For those of you who visit this site from time to time you’ll notice a change of theme. I’ve been wanting to change it for quite a while and so it was just finding the right theme that caught my eye. The Morning After Theme by Arun Kale did this by far. I took one look at his theme and was very impressed. Sure, I’ve changed a few things around which is better in my opinion as it’ll be a little bit more unique than the standard design, however his original design is very nice.

I’ve set the same design across the whole site again, I realise it may be a little confusing to new visitors (sorry!) but I think that consistency is best. I’ve tried to interlink the sites in a little better this time by adding a blog switch link below the top heading. I may also set each blog to show the last 5 posts from the other blog. I don’t want to make the sidebar too busy and complicated but then again I guess it already is a little busy!

Anyhow, I’ll stick with this for a while and see how it goes. I still have a few bits to add, just trying to squeeze in a half hour here and there on it inbetween my mountain of work!

Let me know what you think, and if anything is linked wrongly!

Just to add, I’ve also removed my Food Blog from being a part of this site. If you did read these posts on my combined feed then you’ll need to subscribe to the Feed link.

    Hi Sarah: Love it. I have been looking and looking and looking at this theme, but it is not widgetized and I fear I would never have enough talent to pull it off without the widgets.

    One thing I’ve notice in Firefox on all the other blogs using this theme is that the graphic covers up the row of links in the upper right hand corner. Did you change the code? Because your page loads correctly.

    Hi Sarah. Great new theme. Love the clean magazine style layout of it 🙂

    Cheers guys.

    JHS I’m not too hot on widgets simply because I don’t use them so I’m not sure how hard or easy it is to make a theme run on widgets.

    As for the changes, I made a few code changes but not to the layout on the header besides adding a couple of bits. Maybe I’ve inadvertently fixed something?!

    This is hard for me as I loved your old theme. That being said, change is good and it’s a nice theme.

    Cheers Chance 🙂

    Sara, the downside with the old theme is that it was all absolutely positioned and coded in spanish! This one has a lot less CSS to contend with.

    I can always install a theme switcher just for you if you want 😉
