Trying some new stuff

Looks different doesn't it?

I'm trying out a new WordPress template. It's got a few bugs to work out, and I'm not even sure I'm going to stick with this one, but I'd like to hear what you think. [This template was short-lived, if you want to see what it looked like go here.]

I personally like the template over at this site better, but I've got to figure out a way around a pesky bug with the way it handles quotes.

Anyway, this is a time for input. Tell me what you think.

*UPDATE* Found a temporary fix to how quotes were being handled. I still need to figure out how to get the ads and stuff up on this template. So, if the look of the blog changes drastically over the next few days, don't be surprised.

*UPDATE 2* Got the ads and donation boxes up. More tweaking to be done, including I want to add a post ratings plug-in, but it wasn't working properly. I need to do more work on figuring out what goes where, etc. I also want to fix the blogroll so it's in alphabetical order. Seriously, tell me what you think. Is this more readable? Less? Is there something that annoys you? Please leave comments, or forever hold your peace.

  1. The black background & white letters are harder on my eyes but I'll be here regardless.

  2. Wow, I really like this. Easier for those of us who are "visually challenged", thanks for the new look and keep posting, the news would not be the same without your imput.

  3. Almost unreadable -- white-on-black is uncomfortable. Maybe that makes the font seem smaller and fainter. Previous format was really terrific & easy to read. Why change?

  4. I agree that white on black is hard to read. I really prefer to read black on white, or on some other light, pale color.

  5. I hear you. I'm looking into creating a stylesheet switcher so it will allow you to change the color scheme if you like. Cross your fingers and I'll have something working in a day or two.
