Gripe of the Week #2:  Wordpress Themes.

If you’ve been visiting the site occasionally over the last few days you’ll see the theme has changed quite a bit.  I’ve tried out a few different themes, all of which I really like, however they’ve all seemed to have one sort of fatal flaw or another.  I think I’ve settled on this one, Pixel.  Please let me know what you think.

    I’m not sure if the current one is the one you’re talking about, but I like it. It’s easy to read, provides some color, but not overwhelmingly.

    Layout’s pretty good too.

    Actually, I’m going to amend that slightly. New lines for comments seem to not be tabbed in as one might expect. And the “Leave a Reply” box could probably be a little better-defined. The “Leave comment” box doesn’t stand out either.

    The RSS and Trackback links don’t really stand out — a lighter grey might work better, or steal one of the bluish-green colors from the background.

    Still, I like the overall theme, just a few touch-ups that would make it easier to use.

    The reason why you do not see all the lines tabbed in is due to you lacking a gravatar. I had “no icon” display when users don’t have a gravatar, but I’ve changed it to the mystery man. I’ll look into better enhancing the other things you pointed out.

    You can get a gravatar at and it will follow you on all wordpress pages.

    I’ve changed the colors for the RSS/Trackback, still trying to figure out how to lay out the comment box better, and where I could relocate the post commment button.
