WordPress did something horrible to my blog on Monday.
My header and background suddenly vanished and nothing I did could restore it. I did some checking and discovered I wasn’t alone – most of the WordPress community had been hit by it. Apparently it was a botched attempt by WordPress to adjust the menu system.
Eventually the header came back OK, but the background wasn’t editable any more unless I paid for an upgrade. All of which spurred me to organise a complete redesign with another theme. And I wonder about porting my blog to my own setup. I haven’t yet, but I’ll let you know if I do. It won’t fix WordPress’s relentless tinkering with their UI, but does mean I won’t be blind-sided by any future decisions.
I have a 27-inch monitor, so it’s difficult for me to check out whether the new look works well on smaller screens. Can you read it OK on your device?
And what do you think in general?
