Wet Paint Well this was faster than I thought. Due to some boring classes I had today, I got the chance to fix the few little details in my new wordpress theme that bothered me. So floating images are now displayed correctly, the post date/time is moved a little, image captions look a lot prettier and the comments got a much nicer look.

My new Blog Theme

My new Blog Theme

I’m quite happy with my new feed page so my next thought was to integrate my blog better. So here we are!

I took the design of the feed page and made a WordPress Theme from it. It’s my first self-made WordPress Theme and I really like it so far. Hopefully you too! There is still some space for improvements with displaying images, layouting comments etc. but I’ll look into this later. For now this should do exactly what I want it to do and that is a simple and clean blog that is well integrated into the rest of my page and I can start using more regularly.

By the way, in my last post I was saying that I would look into tumblr. Well the reason I didn’t move to it was that I didn’t see a big advantage over wordpress and that it didn’t offer a simple way to transfer my wordpress blog into tumblr. There are plenty of scripts out there that claim to do the job but none made a good impression to me. And since I’m short on time I decided to go this way and learned how to make wordpress themes on the way too.
