This is the new theme for this blog and my main website. My aim is to merge the two. This theme is a complete re-write from scratch; I first created the template for the main site and then adapted it to a WordPress theme. I named this theme ‘Inquisitor’ after the fact looks like a giant ‘I’ (I was going to call it simply ‘I’, but thought better of it). Its style draws heavily from the main site, with a few touches from the old ‘Philverse’ theme, all pulled together and streamlined for a more utilitarian look. The familiar ‘drop cap titles’ are carried over, mixing old manuscript and modern typography which seems appropriate for 40K, combined with clearer layout. Browsers have come a long way, it was much easier to create the drop caps, so a lot of Div tags and what-nots have be ripped out. A lot lighter and quicker.
The layout is not quite the same as the old blog as I removed the side bar, and all tracking information will be moved to a separate pages. I will add an archives page, and recent comments page later. My goal is to use this blog purely as a ‘news page’. I will update the main site later, once all the quirks have been ironed out here, with the updated theme.
As with all new developments on my site, they are designed to make it easier to get around and view, so I am very interested to hear what you think.
Hearing feedback is very important to me in developing my ideas. Much of my designs are inspired, and crafted, by chatting to fans on forums before snowballing into a full concept you'll find here. I would like to thank all those who have contributed critiques and participated in discussions over the years, and I would especially like to thank all those who commented on this specific topic. If you would like join in, you are most welcome!
