Fresh coat of paint for my blog: new theme, new logo, new version of PHP, and HTTP/2!
A new theme
I finally moved away from the default Twenty Fifteen theme on that site, and picked a brand new theme, Scrawl. It’s designed by my colleague Caroline Moore. Whenever I look for a new theme, I look at her themes first!
I personalized the theme a bit:
Custom Post Titles
I liked my colleague Joen Asmussen’s take on post titles on his own site: a different font for each post. I did something similar here, by applying a random class to each post.
It was then easy to apply a different font to each post class in my CSS.
I like my little Color Posts plugin, and wanted to use it a bit more. In my previous theme, only the sidebar’s background color matched the post image. Starting today, the whole background changes. It took a bit of customization to change all text colors to match the background tone, but I’m happy with the result.
The logo itself is from the talented Tim Wilsie. I love it! ?
