More Cosmetic Surgery

I know…

I shouldn’t have…

But it just felt so good.

You might have noticed that there’s a slightly different look here at WFF. Again.

I know. I promise this is the last time. For awhile.

I’ve spent my afternoon today very pleasantly occupied with a copy of Mimbo, Firebug, a WordPress test site, and lots & lots of child theme tutorials.  The result is what you see before you now.

My child theme, which I’ve dubbed Mim-Kiddie, isn’t significantly different in design from the original Mimbo. But there are subtle differences, and I’ve used several plug-ins and lots of custom functions to make those changes. I’m always thrilled when I can make some bit of code work the way I want it to.

I’m pretty happy with it. I feel like I’ve finally done what I wanted with a theme. Hooray!

If you have comments or suggestions, you’re more than welcome to leave them in the form below (or by clicking over and leaving a comment, if you’re reading via RSS). I’d be excited to hear what you think!

I’ve also turned on Intense Debate’s CommentLuv system, which will link to the last post on your blog when you make a comment. Because I love my readers, and you should all be rewarded with linkage for stopping by!

  1. I like simple, uncluttered and easy to navigate. WordPress with plugins is cool way to go and you can play with your updates a lot if you wish because at least they are good ones every time!!!

    • I love WordPress! I've been using it since version 1.2. (That seems like SUCH a long time ago!) But I've not kept up on the code changes to be able to write a theme from scratch anymore. Which is just as well, since I don't have a lot of time for that, either. And Mimbo's been an excellent theme since 2007, so I'm happy to have it around again.
