Blog Update

As I mentioned in my previous post, I wasn’t happy with my, then current, theme, Gridiculous. The browser compatibility issues were the main problem, but I also wasn’t 100% happy with the theme itself.

Since then I have learnt quite a bit more about how themes in WordPress are written and I have subsequently written my own in the form of a child theme built on top of the twentytwelve theme. This has the advantage of both being a relatively plain theme (so easy to customize) and, having been written by WordPress themselves, a pleasure to modify. Since it’s a child theme it will update as twentytwelve is updated so it should be fairly robust. I was surprised at just how painless the whole procedure was: the bulk of the rewrite took me just 6 hours with a small amount of planning before hand and a bit of messing around uploading it afterwards. I’m very happy with the end result and feel far more comfortable editing these themes now so I should be able to fix any problems as they arise; as I’m sure they will!
