It’s time for a new look for the blog. The current custom WordPress theme has served this blog well for many years, but it’s getting a little long in the tooth, and has started to cause weird gltiches that don’t seem to have clear solutions. That’s what’s knocked the site offline several times in recent days.
So I’ve decided to go ahead and do something I’ve been planning to do for a while: switch to a new, stripped-down theme that I think will look fresher and work better. So don’t be surprised if you come here tomorrow and find good old We Hunted the Mammoth looking rather different. (And, hopefully, not crashing every day for several hours.)
While I’ve dome some rudimentary customization on the new theme I’m going to need to make some changes on top of that to give the site the look and functionality I’d like, so if there are any WordPress or CSS mavens out there who might be willing to help a little bit on this front, please let me know. Most of the extra customization will involve such things as changing fonts, so it should not be a major project. I’m just terrified to touch the code myself since I have no idea what I’m doing.
Onward and upward and all that!
