I was pretty pleased with the Twenty Eleven theme. I thought it was easier to read, I liked the big photo area in the header, and I thought it just looked good. THEN I found out that it didn’t look the same on mobile devices: iPads, iPods, phones and the like. It would take my sidebar off the side and drop it down below all the main content.
I’ve been searching and searching for a “fix”. Apparently the theme I chose, Twenty Eleven, was DESIGNED to do this! It makes the post area bigger and easier to read by moving the sidebar down below. Grrrr! This might be great for some kinds of web sites, but not for bloggers.
Finally today I saw a comment by someone who said, “I guess I’ll have to go back to Twenty Ten”. An aha moment. I previewed Twenty Ten, and it was just what I wanted. It even reduced the amount of white space at the top of the blog, which was another item I wanted to fix.
There are some minor differences, but this is the theme for me! Since I’ve just made a rather major change in changing themes, please feel free to comment about anything you don’t like or doesn’t appear to be working right. Thank you for hanging in there through these changes.
