Attention: Yet Another Theme!

Selfie Intellectual

Yet again circumstances have forced me to change the theme for Beautiful Photographs. The last theme, Monet was not functioning properly. From the homepage, it was only showing previews for a handful of posts. For the most part, all that was being displayed was a grey box with the title of the post in the center. Not very helpful. Not very attractive. To make matters worse, when I tried to change to another “premium” theme, the system kept trying to prompt me to upgrade to a business plan. As I already have a premium plan, such an upgrade should be unnecessary.

Luckily, WordPress does offer a customer support chat. I guess that because of the great distance between Maryland and WordPress HQ, there was a bit of delay between questions and responses. Despite this one drawback, the folks on the other end were able to install my new theme (Photoblog) without my having to lift a finger. Nice. I like this newest theme very much. Defaults include a search box, gallery and a navigational calendar.

Am I the only blogger experiencing difficulties with themes and functionality?

Ragtag Daily Prompt: Ostentatious

As King GarGar approached the altar, his garments began to weigh heavily upon him. The crown that he wore was fashioned with silver and gold, and encrusted with jewels of every size and color. His fur-lined robes were hot. In one hand, he held a scepter and in the other, an orb. Such ostentatious display was required for a coronation; however, the young man could only wish that the ceremony would end- the sooner, the better.

After bowing deeply before the Blessed Sacrament, GarGar turned to face the assembled nobility. He saw his beloved Pirouette looking down on him from the gallery above. He tried to give her a wink, but the weight of the crown was such that he couldn’t even manage that small gesture of familiarity. As sweat dripped from his forehead into his eyes, the sting made him grimace. To the nobles, his visage was suitably grave and befitting of the occasion.
