Site Changes – New Theme

New Changes – As you may have noticed, I’ve decided to update the website layout today and so far I’m liking the new changes. Apart from being a bit more stylish and easier to read, I think the changes will better help organize all the posts and articles I’ve written in the last 3 years.

Premium Themes – I decided to go with a premium wordpress theme for a change. I got my new theme design from FlexiThemes and I thought it was reasonably priced. It costed me about $30 for the new theme. After 3 years of running, it’s probably time to make this blog a bit more professional looking. I’ve tried various free themes in the past but they were quite a hassle because I ended up having to tweak them a lot. I’m hoping people find the new changes beneficial and that the upfront costs will pay for itself in the end.

Organizing Posts – Furthermore, I’ve just learned today that I have been organizing all my posts the wrong way before. I didn’t have much of a system and it’s going to be a hassle to re-organize everything. Posts have to be placed in proper categories and tags, images will have to be linked properly, etc. But a little elbow grease should pay off in the long run.

Tweaking – Finally, the layout isn’t completely to my liking yet. There’s still lots of font sizing, colors and spacing that needs to be tweaked. It’s much lower on my priority list but I’ll get to it eventually.

Feedback – Let me know what you think of the new changes and let me know if there’s anything you would like to see to make this blog/site better.

Thanks for reading!

    Personally, I kinda liked the old theme more. This one seems a bit messy and over crowded. Maybe it will look better after you put on your finishing touches.

      Thanks for the feedback. Will keep it into consideration. I found the old layout hard to navigate around in and access old posts

    I don’t like how the number of comments is at the top of the post rather than at the bottom, like it was before. It usually determines whether I want to click “read more” or not so it’s annoying to have to go back to the top of the post and then come back down.

      Thanks for the feedback. Did a quick fix that displays comments on the bottom.

      >What a great post, and the pictures are excellent, thanks very much indeed. Now, be kind to an ignorant outsider here. Is Squaw Peak considered to be in the Bitterroot Mountains? Or is it on the other side of the valley? I don't have a good east-west-north-south perspective on your location and hike.Again, great post, description of the hike, pics and all. Thanks!
