Something New, Something Blue

It’s been a long time since I’ve changed themes here at Her Realm. It’s been even longer since I made one myself. The previous theme was premade, and it served me well. However, I got an idea in my head, and it actually came to fruition. This layout actually progressed in a natural and easy way. The changes in HTML and CSS since I last made a layout made me squee in a nerdy way. It’s so much easier to do some things.

Quite a few hours went into this layout, although it might look quite simple. I spent 45 minutes looking for one specific shade of green, for example. In the end, I’m quite pleased with it. I think it even fits my content better.

As I updated pages, I fixed a few broken links, re-organized the sections and updated information–especially information about me. There are still a few quirks. For example, I need to fix up the 404 page.

Unfortunately, if you’re viewing this on a mobile device, you don’t get to see the new layout. HTML5 just isn’t mobile friendly, it seems.

The resources used include Peacock palette, Retro flower brushes and Bulb social media icons.

  1. How did you get the mobile interaction, though? Mine displays the normal theme.
    Plus… Comment. Feel the love! <3

  2. It totally shouldn’t. Are you running your browser in desktop mode? The plugin -should- auto detect mobile browsers. It does on my phone, at least. I should check on the Kindle.

    If you’re viewing the normal theme, it probably looks aawwful

  3. Oh, I meant on my website. On here it’s displaying a cool mobile display that I think I want.

  4. @Josh: Oh, well in that case the plug-in is called WPTouch and it’s nice but it’s not what I want everyone to see ;)

  5. This is super cool Cole! You are so handy and awesome! Way to be amazing. :P I really love the colors. ;D

  6. Aww, thank you! <3
