I upgraded my version of WordPress today to 2.7. The new back end functionality is pretty slick. I did find that some of the plugins I was using actually broke the Dashboard, so I’ve had to disable them for now, though I think mostly only I will notice.
I’ve also been playing with the idea of updating my theme, because there were some things I didn’t like about the theme I was using. So I found two that I liked. You’re seeing one of them now, this is Velocity. I’m going to leave it up for 24 hours and then switch to the other on Tuesday. Most of the basics of the themes will stay the same, but I’ll update the header to be my own, once I settle on one. Please let me know what you think of this theme, and come back and give me feedback on the other one on Tuesday.
I like some things about this theme, but one thing I wish it had (which my second choice does have) is comment numbering. It makes it easier to draw winners from random.org and not have to count my way through the comments (HUGE pain). I’m also not crazy about all the fonts it uses.
Once I have a theme chosen, I’m going to work on getting smilies working again. I miss them!
