I’ve spent too much time looking at WordPress themes over the past few days. A little while ago I noticed that multi-column themes that I had created using the Artisteer templating system were not displaying as intended in the Chrome browser. They worked fine in IE, Opera and Firefox but that’s not good enough as Chrome is a very popular browser. I searched the web for solutions but no luck. I will have to learn a lot more about coding to solve this. Shame. Artisteer is great for design. However this theme, ‘Admired Theme’, looks okay so I’m going to use it for a while. One of my issues is becoming fixated over minor issues to the point of not being able to move on to more important things.
I use Artisteer to design themes for my three main sites which are WordPress driven .. While I’m satisfied with the results I notice that they all have the same basic look – header, horizontal menu, two or three columns. I’m satisfied with this site and the Netstorms one but I should make the NYPO one look different, not so dark but not white.
Artiseer is great for designing templates that work but the problem is making them look different.
