In the process of changing WordPress themes here. I had tweaked the old one so many ways that I couldn’t keep it straight anymore. I experimented with a few nice looking themes today, but couldn’t get them to work the way I wanted them too. I suspect some of the problems were browser cache issues, but in any event, I do not want or need a theme which controls the Main Index template separately from the Single Post template separately from the Page Template separately from the Archives template.

I’ve installed the Black Neon 1.0.2 theme, by a slightly modified version of which I use on I like it because it’s super simple to play around with, and for me; although I’m well-versed in basic HTML, I know next-to-nothing about CSS and PHP, so my “modifications” usually mutate into something less-than-desirable.

I will probably stick with Neon Black for the time being, perhaps making some small adjustments here and there.

    The yellow makes it extremely difficult to even look at the page now. It’s your business, but I hope you’ll keep tweaking and dial that back a bit. I read 70 blogs every day, and as of now, this is by far the hardest on my eyes. :-(

    I so need to do this too.

    Whoa. The new theme certainly doesn’t suck, but my flinch-reaction is to say I liked the old look better. Sounds like you were getting into maintainability problems, though, and there ain’t much to do about that but pitch out the bathwater…

    hmmm. what if I swap the yellows and the blues? using the yellows for only the H1 tags, and using the blue for hyperlinks?
