Yesterday, they [WordPress] released two, new themes … two free themes, actually. Not too many of my readers are interested in this stuff, but I know few are.
When there are new releases, I always try them out, if for nothing else, to see what they’ve come up with. It’s almost like fashion … there are trends! For example, to put the menu/navigation underneath one of those «hamburger» icons. Personally, I’m not a big fan of that — I still like to keep the menu visible, and preferably under the header photo if I have one. That’s not a must, though.
Now, I tried out both of yesterday’s releases; Adaption and Isola. Took a certain liking to the Adaption theme, even applied it. Then the same old issue arose: ‘Featured images’. I tried to bring this to their attention about a year ago, but nothing has happened.
Blog themes handle ‘featured image’ differently, and that’s perfectly alright. What’s not alright is that there’s no [easy] way of going back in your posts and change your settings. What I want is the ability to go into my image library and filter ‘featured’. I don’t know how difficult that could be to imply, and maybe it’s just me who has a hang-up again. Not too many people would scroll back in my blog and see those ‘double’ photos, but still … it is my blog and I want to feel proud of it, even though I like to change theme every now and then.
So, for the moment, I’m back with My Life theme … even the title of it works for me 🙂
