If you can not read this post, then I did something wrong. Please let me know if that is the case.

It looks like I didn’t break everything.

If you are reading in a feed reader, come check out the new design.

I started with a theme called Pool which was written by Borja Fernandez and then tweaked it a little bit.

The main reason I made the swap is I was getting tired of making changes to the old theme and not really understanding the way it was written. This one is much easier for me to figure out. Especially the CSS file and in particular how the sidebars are handled.

If you remember the old theme, I think the biggest change is that the full posts are showing up on the main page instead of just the excerpts. I may start using the more tag from time to time on longer posts to keep the front page from getting too cluttered. Other than that I plan on using the full posts on the front page for at least a while.

Also, during all of this, I tried a new plugin called Permalink Redirect which does a couple of cool things. Most importantly to me, it fixed my FeedBurner redirect problem.

If anybody notices anything that looks wrong or just plain doesn’t work, please let me know. If possible, can you let me know the browser and version you are using if you find something wrong.

Thanks.
