We now have e-mail subscriptions to both posts and follow-up comments! That’s one of your requests that we were able to make happen. We’re still trying to figure out comment numbering. But we’re making progress.
I’ve also got the hang of the new format, with the first part of the post appearing on the home page and then your having to click “read more” to read the rest of it. What we worked out is that instead of just having six lines of text in a box of six lines before an automatic jump, I can now be flexible in how much of the post shows up on the home page, inserting my own jumps. I’m still breaking most of my posts into two parts, in accord with the Patheos template, but the beauty of the format is that I can put more material into my posts, adding pictures and other discussion with great abandon, without having a post take over the entire page. So it’s a change, but I think a good change.
Also, Patheos got rid of that “esoteric” ad that kept popping up to the annoyance of us all.
There looks to be some more tweaks that will be possible, including putting some of the old icons back into the sidebar.
I appreciate too that the regular readers seem to have come on over to the new site, and we’re getting new viewers! So thanks for that.
