If you’re a regular reader of HTNet, you might notice that I have adjusted the look of the site a bit. Some of the changes I’ve made include:
- Converting the theme to use fixed width instead of the original fluid width style
- Minor cosmetic changes to the header and footer
- Making better use of the footer by widgetizing it (it now holds two menu columns and the standard footer text on a third column)
- Since the footer can now hold widgets, moved some that used to be in the sidebars there
- Modified the index and category sections to hold a maximum of five posts per page
- Speaking of pages, I also installed a post pagination plugin; so browsing pages is no longer restricted to next or previous pages
- Changed all sidebar widget headers to use
<h5>instead of the WP standard
<h2>; yeah, admittedly mostly for SEO and semantics
- Also made the sidebar widget headers use a smaller font size
Why am I doing all this? For one thing, I like the idea behind the old theme, but I want to see how I can make it look cosmetically nicer and also improve readability. I think it’s heading towards the right direction.
What do you think of HTNet’s new look? I’m open for any ideas that will improve it further. Just give me a shoutout in the comments.
