New Design

One of the cool things about WordPress, and CSS, is that the content of a web site is separate from the formatting instructions. Which means you can change the site layout in seconds, simply by dropping in a new format — called a “theme.”

You’re seeing it here in FreeThought Blogs’ airy new appearance. The left sidebar has vanished, and a few new things are happening on the right sidebar.

One thing to notice is the tabbed boxes in the right column. Comments and Archives now share a box with Recent Posts, via tabs on the top. You can alternate between FTB Recent Posts and FTB Most Active in the same way.

The Comments sections have a neat new look too.

To tell you the truth, I’m still exploring it all myself, so that’s about everything I know right now, but if I discover anything especially fantastic — like a coffee cup holder that extrudes from your screen, or a one-on-one chat window with Jeri Ryan that opens anytime you visit the site — I’ll let you know.

    Poor Jeri. She’ll be closing windows all day, every day, from now on.

    Jeri Ryan is a maniacal Twitterer. It’s quite likely that if you send her a tweet, she’ll respond.

    CHANGE!!! I for one like the new theme, seems to not mess with post images or having the habit of pictures breaking the old theme’s frame restrictions.
