As per usual about once every 6 to 8 months, I compulsively decided to change my website’s theme.
Even though I feel drastic needs to make these changes, I hate doing it. It’s so hard to find a decent theme to start with, and I definitely don’t have the time or the motivation to write my own theme from scratch.
Hoping for a solution to this ongoing problem, I have decided to use the theme “K2” – a popular theme that is currently embraced by Vanlandw and CSH. This is a very simple, yet very aesthetically pleasant and easy on the eyes.
With that said – I am never using any other theme on palmerforpresident.com. Any design, look, or usage of theming will all be based on K2. I may slightly modify the theme, but it will always be K2 as a base. Out of the box, the main thing i didn’t like was how dynamic K2 is. It dynamically generates the sidebar and header nav on every single page that is loaded. I modified both of these to be quite a bit more static – for me that’s a little nicer.
I don’t mind the theme, so any modifications will be fairly minor, but there will be a bit of a ‘transitional’ phase for me to get everything formatted to this themes css styles.
