Aliens ate my Buick last night. Well, WordPress chomped my blog. According to the help forum, they updated the theme I was using – Choco – and broke it. My posts vanished off the front page courtesy of an attempt to add infinite scrolling, I’m told.
I can’t complain. WordPress have done a fantastic job of creating an amazing CMS system which lets a lot of people express themselves and communicate, I have been hugely impressed with them – both their product, and as people to deal with – and I know they’ll have a fix soon. But I had to get back up and running fast. The fix? A new theme. Quintus. Hope you like it. I do – and I’d been wondering about a change for some time. So in the glass-half-full sense, this is a good thing.
I’ll be adding some custom header features and other tweaks over the next few days. I’m scrabbling a bit to get everything back on par, including updating my website www.matthewwright.net – which I do the hard way (it’s bespoke HTML, not a CMS package). So I’ll be running today’s post tomorrow.
Doesn’t derail my plan for the next week to post every single day, starting tomorrow. Back to the usual schedule after that. You’ll see why.
Meanwhile, what do you think of the new look? Oh – and does anybody ‘get’ what I am getting at with this post title?
