Thought it was about time I changed the appearance of the blog to try and freshen it up a bit and am trying the Museum theme, previously the Untitled theme was used.
Be interested to know what you all think of the change.
I settled on the Museum theme as it is free and seemed quite good for a largely image based blog. However, there are a few things that I am finding that I don’t like:
- It stretches the images on the home portfolio of posts page, notably vertical images
- While there are likes for posts, there are no likes for pages, comments only
- No sidebar or top widget areas, all widgets have to be at the bottom – for search and follow boxes I think this is quite a let down.
- In practise a featured image is required for each post for the front portfolio page, but this then means this same image appears above the main content of the post. I don’t always want this.
On balance I think the theme is less likely to encourage interaction with a viewer and it seems to have relatively few options in the ‘free’ version. Will give it a few weeks, but think I will return to the good old Untitled Theme. Of course you are the people that count, so what are your views? Any suggestions?
As for the image that I have used as the ‘featured image’ of this post, this is just one pulled from the archives and taken in West Cork.
