Status Report 12

Okay, here we are about five months after picking up this shadow known as The Blog. It’s still a relatively welcome companion, we’re on good terms, no major fights to mar the peace and tranquility.

That would not have been so if I hadn’t been able to fix some problems with implementing the new look, and subsequent to that the newer look, and a few days ago the newest look. We still have issues, but nothing that will sever the relationship. At least for the time being.

For now, here are the current stats:

Launch date: July 29, 2010.

A few of the menu options still baffle me. I’m trying to figure out: 1) why my color selection for post titles doesn’t appear at all on certain pages, or only on certain titles on other pages; 2) why my color selection for text in the widget areas (like in the sidebar menus) appears only on the bullet squares and parenthesized numbers beside the logbook page and archive listings; 3) why my color selection for links in the sidebars only appears for certain links and not for others; 4) why on the logbook and archive pages, which present excerpts from the posts by showing only the first 55 words, when I click on the link to continue reading for any individual post, it appears with the title shown in blue but it didn’t before.

What this means is that you can color me confused . . .
