I’m hoping the search for a suitable look and functionality for this blog has been completed with the installation of the Anaconda 3 column theme.

I tried half a dozen themes last night. None of them quite made the grade, as far as I’m concernecd.

I like the look and layout of Anaconda and especially the fact that I can have page tabs at the top, as for a traditional website. It does not seem to have the Andreas09 type feature enabling the display of several levels of tabs. The ease with which Andreas09 accommodated page tab displays was one of the main attractions for me, together with the fact that the Andreas09 “look and feel” met my needs for something reasonably businesslike – in a “corporate look” sense.

But the problem I had with Andreas09 was that Internet Explorer 7 was displaying all posts as centred, a problem I couldn’t solve, even with advice. So, working on my principle that I want what works for me, as distinct from something that “should” work, I decided to change.

Anaconda also looks very businesslike to me and I can live with not being able to display levels of page tabs.

According to the Anaconda website, the theme is fully widgetized. And it is compatible with WordPress 2.x.

The following two tabs change content below.
