Switching things up a bit with a new look

As you can see, this blog has a brand new look. The layout more or less matches the old one but this one uses a light theme instead of the dark theme. Those who prefer the dark theme can still use it by scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking the desired theme. This ‘on the fly’ theme switching is accomplished with a plug in called Theme Switcher Reloaded.

As you can see, this blog has a brand new look. The layout more or less matches the old one but this one uses a light theme instead of the dark theme. Those who prefer the dark theme can still use it by scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking the desired theme. This ‘on the fly’ theme switching is accomplished with a plug in called Theme Switcher Reloaded. It accomplishes this by writing a session cookie to set the theme choice. This presented a problem as this session cookie breaks the Atahualpa theme’s option link. I had to clear the cookies to get the link to return. This is not really a problem for viewers but blog author’s should be aware of this limitation. Another problem with switching themes is widgets are designed for one theme so switching themes overwrites the previous selections. Additionally, the widget for theme switching can only be placed on one theme. That’s why I had to code the theme switch options manually at the bottom of the page for one of the themes.
