Back in April I gave some previews of potential new themes. I limited it down to three possibilities. I’m going to try each one for a couple of weeks to see how it works out. I’ve discovered that themes change things you don’t expect for example the way captions show on photos so I want to try to live with each one of the three for a couple of weeks and see how it goes.
For the next two weeks I’m going to be testing out Fictive. It isn’t as pretty as the last one, but it isn’t bad. The sepia photo is one that I just quickly put in, but it can be changed to anything.
I changed it over on Monday so I’ve had a chance to find out a couple of things. First, it doesn’t automatically show a search box, which I think it is unhelpful and strange. I could add a search box widget, so I did.
Next on my tablet and phone it shows the posts to scroll through clearly and resized, but it doesn’t show the pages. This is bad because I put a lot of important information about schedule, booking programs, etc. on the pages. Let me know if you can get into them on your phone.
Please make comments about it in the comment section below.
