Blog Theme

I have tweaked the theme that I was using on a temporary basis, and plan to keep it for the foreseeable future.

  1. Sorry you’ve made that decision, BD, but I don’t doubt that there are very valid reasons for it.
    Could you at least try to do something about reducing the font size slightly along with the line spacing?
    Also, it would be nice if you could address the issue of what I’m sure is a beautiful picture of your ‘home turf’ – it’s so badly pixelated.

    1. I have some issues with the display too, Jane. I suspect it has taken a colossal amount of work to get this far and will undergo ongoing tweaks as time goes by.

      Nothing major – for example when I viewed a thread (you were discussing something with MrK concerning a YouTube clip) on my phone (which I rarely use), your last post on the matter was in such a narrow column that it appeared as one character per line, ie vertically. However on my desktop it’s hard to see who’s replying to who. There is no indication that this is a ‘reply to Jane’ post.

      Now, even on my PC the ‘Comment’ box covers the entire width of the page, ie covering the navigation panel normally on the right.
      I’m sure Dave will fix the niggles given time – perhaps Mr K could do another ‘Operating System, Browser, Issue’ to get some feedback on precise problems.
      I note with interest that iPad users all seem chuffed with the new platform.

  2. Thanks for the feedback – it’s all useful. I may not be able to do much about the font size as the theme works on Desktops, Tablets and Phones. The picture is 10 years old, and I have lost the original – I’ll take a new one when the weather is good enough, and I need to get out early as the pub next door is now the county’s top gastropub and there are loads of cars parked outside. By the way, our bungalow is behind the trees just to the right of the centre of the picture.

    1. Anything you can do would be much appreciated here, BD.

      Yes – if I stand about 6 ft away from the laptop screen and screw my eyes up, I can just about see a little of what I guess is your bungalow! Hope all those cars don’t disturb your peace too much.

  3. Thanks for all your work, Big Dave. This site is so valuable — useful, fun, and friendly!

    Are links in comments still allowed? One of mine isn’t where I thought I left it, but that could’ve been me fluffing the syntax.

  4. Don’t know how you managed it, BD, but the photo of The Swan is now crystal clear.
    Thank you.
