Welcome to the long-overdue revamp of this blog’s design.
Our new look is courtesy of the Genesis theme framework from StudioPress, which makes things like choosing a column layout really simple. I just fiddled a bit with some of the colors and fonts and style-sheet stuff.
WordPress has become so much more powerful and elegant as a content management system over time — the widget framework for dropping in features like the Twitter box, the navigation boxes and my little book promotions is awfully straightforward. Thanks to all the developers who have brought us to this fine place!
I’ve tested things out on various browser/platform combos but let me know if you see anything funky.

“but let me know if you see anything funky”
Hmm… The absence of links to the previous and next posts at the head of the page (or indeed anywhere on the page) makes it more difficult to navigate your site than was previously the case. I’m not sure if that’s “funky”, but it is annoying.
Thanks, Steve. That bugged me too. So I just fixed it :-) It’s a little more complex doing these changes in Genesis Framework than plain old WP themes. I’m mucking more with PHP using the nifty “simplehooks” tool for Genesis.
It took a little work to figure out how to make the previous/next links go away on the home page, but it seems to work fine now. Might continue to tinker with the design. But at least you can navigate this way again!
Thanks, Scott :-)
