New Theme and Features for JDHarper.com

I’ve change the theme for JDHarper.com from Ceruleus, my contest entry for the Sandbox Design Competition, to this one. It’s based on the fabulous K2 theme, which looks great all on its own. I added some missing features (e.g. limiting image sizes to 500px across so they don’t poke into the sidebar if they’re too wide) and tweaked it a little here and there, but for the most part, it’s just the standard K2 theme.

K2 adds some neat features to the blog, most notably the live comment addition. When you add a new comment to a post, it will add your comment to the bottom of the list without reloading the page. It’s really spiffy looking. Try it out!

The “theoretically related posts” part of the individual blog pages has moved into the sidebar, and I’ve moved the archives from sidebar into their own page, linked in the header above. I’ve also switched from using the Google Reader widget in the sidebar to using one from del.icio.us, so that I can post links from sites that I’m not subscribed to.

Anyways, let me know if you find anything that looks broken, and tell me what you think about the new theme.

  1. Noticed that some headings were not the same font as others. Maybe this is to indicate older postings? Otherwise looks good.

  2. Actually, the smaller heading are for a category of posts called “asides.” In the old theme, these posts had no heading at all and had a white bar on the left side.
