Evolving ‘face’ of the Orthopedic Logbook

in Social Media by

In another yet unprecedented layout and theme “reconstruction”, The Orthopedic Logbook unleashed a sleek, more organized and clutter-free face. Thanks to the WordPress Premium Red theme that was ported to blogger by the geniuses at Eblogger templates. Here are the intra-op findings and the corresponding modifications to the lay out.

  1. The previous layout (named “corky” and greatly modified by yours truly), though sleek and artistic, crawls during loading. The header picture is too large and the layout is too complex. Blog speed and loading is darn slow. The current layout has less images and is extremely organized. Widgets are handy enough to add as many HMTLs you want. And it loads so much faster.
  2. My old theme sucks at widget organization and clutter. The new ones made it all too easy for me. Why the heck do the job of modifying and css-ing when someone can do the job better than you and give it for free?
  3. I want to get a more serious, professional look at my layout. I plan to write about some really serious stuff online.

Hopefully, when I get my self hosted site and domain, I can port it easily to WP. This layout is WP finest in my opinion. In the future, I hope to recreate that old layout of mine and make it as sleek as this one. And maybe transfer back to that site! .
