Its been eleven months since I changed the design of this site. Anyone who has persisted with my drivel over the years can attest that this is probably the longest period that this WordPress installation has looked the same. That is when I hacked Srinivasan G’s excellent Evanescence theme into what its become here. I chose it because of the clean and clear code in the theme. It allowed me to expand upon it and build something that I liked. I can’t say that I won’t change again, but i still like what I came up with after all this time. I may change it a bit here and there to either “tweak” what I have or to change the color a bit to reflect the season. But, then again, I may not.
I checked out the websites of the commenters on the theme’s page and it looks like over 1/2 of them have kept the theme in use in its original design (which is quite classy, I must say). I think that Srini should consider that a success. And, although it really didn’t ever end up on my site in its original incarnation (especially since I snagged some code from another of his themes, which Ray uses), I am still content to use it as well.
So, have you kept the same theme? Are you happy with what you present to the world? Does it even matter to you?
