I just got fed up with the previous theme and thought that it’s time for a change. So I took a freely available theme called Zeke from SoloStream and retooled it to suite Mahmood’s Den a bit better.
As you can see, this theme is wider; it’s main screen is 960 pixels wide and has two “sidebars”. One important thing about this theme is its capability to display a “featured” article which will always appear at the top of the page and is made distinct by its different coloured background highlight. I can choose which article can occupy that space or just revert back to normal blog chronological article display. This means that the top article on the page is not necessarily the last article I published!
I’m going to play about a bit more with this theme as I gain more experience with specific content display in order to make information easier to get at. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
I also think that I have fixed the problem with Internet Explorer forcing the sidebar to be taken to the bottom of the content (because I had content which stretched the main div) but do let me know should you experience any problem with the theme or site please.
I hope you like the changes, and thanks once again for your continued support and friendship.
