What do you think of the new theme?

Well, as you can see, Fresh Perspectives gets a new theme couple of days ago.  The previous theme BloggingPro worked fine for some time but I used it for too long, more than a year and I needed a change.  This theme, Options by Justin Tadlock as you can see, displays a lot more content for you to browse through and I'm loving the navigation.  

I had tremendous help (truck loads of it I should say) from my dearest friends Mig from Online Public Relations and Deborah from Life In The Fast Lane.  So, although I was a bit afraid of the change,  I'm starting to really like it. 

There are some features that are not working right now and we are trying to fix them but in the mean time, would love to hear from you guys.  Please let me know in the comments if you find something broken or not working.   If you are seeing this post via RSS, you'll definitely have to come out here to see it.

One of the things that's not working and it has nothing to do with the theme, is inserting images in WordPress 2.5.1 If you follow that link, you'll see so many others who are having problem with inserting images. Some have found the solution by modifying the .htaccess file which I want to refrain from since WordPress 2.6 has been just released today and I am hoping the upgrade will solve this problem.

So, then.. what do you guys think?   Are the colors okay, better or worse than the previous one?   What would you like to see and what feature can be remove?

  1. Excellent! I came to the site and said, “Wow!” I love the colors and I love the peaceful header.

    If I had to critique one thing it would be it’s not apparent right away what this blog is about. Interesting Observations could be about anything. Maybe a small tagline or something could tell new comers what’s here or why they might want to read your blog.

    But that’s just being picky. I really like your new home.

  2. @Renny – glad you like the header images and the design too…

    @John – It’s such a relief to get positive feedback on the header images… you know, that’s not being picky and I’ve been meaning to include the tagline but for some reason, haven’t had the time to do it. Will fix it soon…. glad you like it…

  3. Hi Pearl

    I love the new theme. I am pleased you have kept all the recent posts very obvious on the front page, unlike some of the magazine type themes which I find hard to navigate. What an appropriate image for your front page too.

  4. Hi Pearl

    I love the new theme, its awesome!

    And you know what? One of the image in the rotating header shows 2 Chinese pagodas overlooking a lake, I’m quite sure it’s a tourist attraction here in Singapore!

    The place is call Chinese Garden and it’s about 10mins drive from where I live.

    I see most of the above comments singing praises about the many beautiful header images, you got it going girl!
    Excellent makeover!
