It's slick, it's fast, but is it pleasing to the eye?

  1. I've changed the theme, added featured posts, slideshow, google translate. It's running faster now because I'm moving all the images to be hosted on WordPress instead of Flickr, Fhotoroom and Skydrive. But is it pleasing to the eye? Does it make you want to stay and read more? Be honest, let me know.......please

    The blog I need help with is mikehardisty.wordpress.com.

  2. Yes but IMO the Flagcounter ought to be moved to be at the bottom of the sidebar. I also think a header image would be an improvement.

  3. Sorry I mean to say a colorful header image. Have you seen this guide to the theme? http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/06/02/the-morning-after/

  4. The flag counter makes sense and I've moved it already. I've also added the RSS link which was missing. By the header image I assume you mean change the ones that WordPress supply to something more colourful and not the Blog Title the same as Panos has on wptips

  5. Hi there,
    Yes, that's what I mean. I think the header treatment that Panos did on his blog is by far more pleasing in appearance than the regular display contemplated by the theme.

  6. I'm not sure how he did that. From what I can see the image I have on my blog is called the header image and at the moment it's the default from WordPress. The one Panos has I can't find any reference how to insert that. It's the same as the text he has to the right of that. I'm not sure how that was done, Maybe he tweaked the template?

  7. If you do want to do something similar using a different image then why not go to his blog and ask him how he did it. :)

  8. That's what I was thinking of doing. It does seem silly for me to have a blog mainly about photography and not have an image of some sort there.

  9. Go for it. He will help you. :)

  10. It's done but as it's 23:55 here in the UK I'm off to bed....it's been a long day

  11. Just an update. Panos has shown me how to get that header and I've tried it with a sort of test image. I'm off on a business trip tomorrow so won't be able to make it real nice until I get back next Wednesday but at least I know how to do it now. so thanks for pointing me in the direction of Panos.

  12. I'm liking the change already. You're welcome. :)
