Blog ~ Appearance–Custom CSS, 10/15

cropped-512square-final-blog-logo-inverted-with-green-no-text-ce.jpgYesterday, Saturday–10/14, I uploaded changes [over 100 lines of code] I have made to my Custom CSS since September 10, 2017, when I Changed Twenty Sixteen Theme to dark. I reveal the code now to post all the modifications at one time. The addition of a blog logo makes it more difficult to control blog site identity on mobile devices.

I hope you are enjoying the dark mode and that it is easier on your eyes than a light background.


Publishing ~ Blog–Theme Twenty Sixteen, Dark, 09/10

I transistioned the theme to Dark just after midnight this morning.

This screen presentation should look nice on the new iPhone X.

Blogging ~ WordPress.Com–Theme Twenty Seventeen, 04/11

Twenty SeventeenFinally, we get the long awaited WordPress.Com Core Theme–Twenty Seventeen. In the past, Automattic [WP’s parent company] has released its core theme near mid-December. That was not the case for this theme. I’ve checked daily for it and today–HERE IT IS!

I activated it and had a few dislikes. I reverted to my current theme–Twenty Sixteen which I’ve modified a LOT using Cascading Style Sheet coding. I decided to give Twenty Seventeen another go. Using CSS, I had difficulty making my blog look as I want. There are features I like that are missing in the new theme. Plus, I would have had to ensure it shows the blog as I think it should be seen on mobile devices. That takes a lot of time. For me, Twenty Sixteen is not broken.

So, we continue where we were and maybe for a very long time. I like to keep my theme fresh. I will look for other CSS changes that may enhance the blogging experience.

Stay tuned…

Event ~ Candlelight Loft Tour, Fayetteville, North Carolina–Tour Guide, 12/11

We were SPECIAL!

The Downtown Alliance gave us tour guides [versus the maps of the past] with an exclusive message from its president–Tony Chavonne. The first 100 or so of us received grab bags with little [much appreciated] gifts. Thanks for us to the Downtown Alliance and the host who welcomed us into their homes [and granted my permission to take pictures]. THANKS!
Speaking of pictures–see those I took as a slide show.
