I’ve narrowed down the blog redesign templates to a couple of choices. It’s pretty exciting, even though the learning curve is CRAZY. How proud will I be, if I really can figure this out on my own? Totally! Last week, while sitting for hours in a surgery waiting room, I read the chapters in WordPress for Dummies on how to customize templates. It requires fiddling in the CSS (cascading style sheets) and uploading new images and stuff via FTP, which is very scary, but I think I can do it … at least enough to make one of these templates more like us.
Right now, a theme called Hanging is the front runner. I hope to figure out how to put some Lilly images, where the foliage is now. I’m sure there are other tweaks I’ll try too, but we’ll see.
I like the design elements of this one, called Comment Central, but I would need to change some of the images and the text font.
As I said last week, once I get things to look the way I want, then I’ll have to tackle moving all our content (posts, photos, videos, audio). Oy!
