Switched Themes Again

You might have noticed that yesterday I changed the theme here at Chris M. Lindsey again.

I have switched from Redoable 1.2 over to ScribbishWP. ScribbishWP is a WordPress-port of the Scribbish theme for the Typo content management system.

I switched because I am tired of the slow load times that come with the K2 and K2-based WordPress themes. That, and the guys that make K2 never seem to want to release stable updates to their theme.

I like the ScribbishWP theme because it loads fast and because it is plain. I like the way it looks, and it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that make any site load really slow.

The first thing I issue I noticed with the theme was that ScribbishWP doesn’t always work with IE, especially if you post content that is bigger than 500 pixels. This is fixed on the front page, but some of the pages with screenshots have the sidebar at the very bottom.

All in all, I like it. I still need to customize a few things. I would like to change the reddish/maroonish color over to maybe a more UGA red or a blue, and add in my Twitter status thingy again. The theme also doesn’t incorporate the ‘edit post’ link when logged in as an admin, like most WordPress themes do. No big deal, I can add that myself.

Anyways, I hope you like the new look of the site.
