Did a little work on my blog’s theme to bring it up to speed with WordPress 2.7. Been using the same theme with a few modifications since WP 1.5 so it was time for a little refresh. List of changes:
- New font and font sizes.
- Reset all padding and margins. This made it easy to get consistent spacing across the entire site using margins only.
- New comments output with gravatar support. Using the new wp_list_comments function with a custom callback to separate trackbacks.
- Moved header text down so the tails of the Y’s go into the background of the main column, that’s the extent of my creativity.
- Category and tag pages only show excerpts now.
- Edited robots.txt and sitemap.xml to avoid Google indexing duplicate content on archive pages.
- Increased total container width to 895px, my stats show only about 1.2% of people who visit my blog are on 800 x 600 so there’s no point in designing for them anymore.
- Added code to show Google AdSense to visitors coming straight from a Google search. Did that about a month ago, I’ve made $7 in February so far.
