New WordPress Theme

February 14th, 2009

screenshotI poked around on the WordPress themes site for a while and ended up choosing iNove which was on the first page (due to it’s popularity). I’m continually impressed by WordPress 2.7.  The administration pages are dynamic yet simple and the capabilities of installing plugins/widgets remotely is very slick. It’s nice to be able to install a widget, test it with a blog or page post, and then just nix it if you aren’t pleased. It’s so easy and fast that I keep finding widgets I want to install just to mess with them and doing so.

Now if themes were that easy…

To install the theme you simply move the theme zip file into your $WPHOME/themes directory and unzip it (may need to change permissions depending on your setup). All that’s left is to select the theme using the administration pages.

I liked the new theme, as I was getting tired of the orange on black thin column page, so I made a few changes to the widgets that were visible in my sidebar and let it rip.

I finally got around to posting more Alaska photos.  I’ll be posting other albums later this week (like new puppy pictures).

Enjoy the photos.

Stacie napping

Stacie thinks I have too much time on my hands if I’m actually considering a blog.  I’m not so sure.  We’ll see how it progresses.

The picture above is another from our summer 2006 vacation to Alaska.  We had a nice long hike on a glacial bar somewhere in the vicinity of Polychrome Pass in Denali National Park.  We came across lots of wildlife including a herd of caribou shortly before this picture was taken.

We stopped for a hot lunch of some sort of soup or other, then Stacie settled down for an afternoon nap.

I walked around and took pictures of some flowers which I will eventually get posted to the photo albums.
