New suit of clothes

As you can see, we took the opportunity of adopting a new theme while fixing the formatting and database problems that have bedevilled Club Troppo for some time now.   The work has been done by Vicki Berry of DistinctiveWeb  (her blog is here).   It’s a slightly tweaked version of the veryplaintxt theme, which as you can see is  a minimalist, fluid-formatting design.

There are still a few features to be added, but your comments on the new theme are welcome.

Boo! Give it up, Homer.
I love the new design, serif fonts are far easier on the eye than sans-serif.

Very nice. The old one never did render properly in my version of Firfox on MacOSX.

its working fine on my mac and firefox, but go for a sans serif for the body text, easier to read on screens (opposite to paper) and not everyone has nifty LCD screens, and slightly larger please

but not a harsh sans serif

for those of us in the later years it is hard to read a bit like a Paddy editorial!

I like it. Lean, functional, stripped back – a bit like a Surry hills loft conversion with granite-topped benches and gunmetal flooring…..

Homer, in the spirit of stripping back on pointless embellishment, you seem to have recovered your identity

Only here annd only because of nicholas’s pleadings!

One has to be diferent somewhere and the font is so small here now no-one will be able to read it

Font size in posts fine, yes a bit small in comments. I like it, although I did like the seashellmotif on the old template. Its very New York Times or something. Very no-nonsense.

slightly heavier font is easier to read on my bad eyes, regardless of serifs or sans

“But the font size in primary posts is OK, isn’t it?”

It’s fine unless you’re overdue for an optical checkup, in which case it’s a useful prompt.

Troppo – the health-promoting blog! Tony Abbot might slip you a medicare provider number….
