Dear wonderful designers at WordPress,
I use Patricia Muller's Connections theme and it works mostly very well for me. However, I have four suggestions for improvements.
1. After the category list for a post, the (edit this) highlight is not separated by a space. Therefore, it looks like: Afghanistan(edit) instead of Afghanistan (edit). --This shows up more in the blog than it does in this message.
b. Separation of category and function would be even more clear on a new line, such as:
2. Now that we are in months with more letters, the date extends outside of the date highlight box on the post title line. It is not a problem in May, but it is in September. So September should either be Sept. or the box should be longer.
3. The highlight color does not differ much from the plain text color, and a little more contrast would be nice.
4. I would love to see a three-column Connections theme.
I do not plan to change themes, but I thought these comments might be helpful to Ms. Muller (whom I do admire for her work) for this theme and to many designers for other themes.
Ya'all do a great job for us out there. Thank you very much for the opportunities you provide.
