More Updates

So, this theme is quite different from what we’re used to on old WP. The comments are found by clicking the Read More link or the itty bitty tiny comments icon show below:

I’m still getting used to the theme, so if you see something strange let me know. You’re stuck with the fonts… but there might be a plugin for that too! The comments will be an issue, and I might have to get a plugin for that, too. I’ll see you all tomorrow. I need a break!

    1. I have to leave my reply here… where it doesn’t belong because the ‘privacy policy’ gets in the way of the box I should use.
      Perhaps I should just click close and accept. But I never had to in the past. ~ Jules

      Clicking on read more didn’t help.

        1. I did try going to the bottom of the page… but I can’t get past the ‘block’ of the policy thingy.

          You said you wanted feed back… That’s my crumb. Stay sane.

  1. I already don’t like it. I can only comment in the reader, not on your site proper, and I couldn’t read the entire post either place. If I can’t read the post or comment, there’s not much point is there? (K)

      1. I know it’s not your fault…I just don’t understand the point of complicating things. Look at how much time you’ve spent already! You should be writing, not trying to figure out how to let people see what you write.

          1. Too many choices is not a good thing. Even when setting up kblog a few years ago, I could not look at more than 20 themes, and just chose the simplest looking of those even though I wasn’t that crazy about it. I wonder if the comment problem is a quirk in the newest set-up though–in my half-sleep this morning, I realized I’ve had that trouble a few other times recently. I also dislike that these new themes don’t show the whole post in the reader, which is where I look at the blogs I follow. I’m actually not sure they realize what’s going on sometimes themselves!

          2. I know what you mean. This is the astra theme. I’ve got some more work to do on the theme but otherwise this might do. There are lots of free themes but many only give one font and one color. I don’t like red on a blog. It’s too glaring. Most of these themes cost $50 a year and add that to the pro plan $180, it adds up. But this is where we’re at. Free and FSE or Pro and more costs. However, the themes only take a couple of hours to set up. I use CSS code too, so that helps. 💜

  2. Nice looking theme, Colleen. Much better than many of the old themes I still see bloggers using.

    I saw the comments and ‘leave a reply’ box straight away, so did not have to click any ‘read more’ link or the small comments icon you mentioned to see them. I see you also have a widget bar, so they must be doing new themes with widget bars (which is great news).

  3. I didn’t see a Read More. I scrolled all the way to the bottom and saw “Leave a Reply” and commented there. Just sharing feedback while you try to navigate through this mess. 🙂

  4. Take it one step at a time, Colleen. I have do doubts you will figure it out or move to a different theme. It takes time to find a theme suitable for one’s blog. This theme looks nice but I don’t feel it’s you, yet. I haven’t taken the time to look at all of the available themes for Eclectic Brew and I’m currently using the same familiar theme I use for Eugis Causerie. One of the many things I like about my theme, is the many ways to make it look different plus it is free and there is no extra charge for the pro features. Good luck and I know you can do it! ❤️
