Time to relax with a coffee in the sun

Flying Coffee
Flying Coffee | Nuremberg | 2018

Sure there was some “Angst” right before pushing the button to activate the new blog theme (Baskerville 2).  I did some testing and experimenting using the new theme’s live preview in the WordPress customization area. When I was happy I went live, hoping that all my blog contents created during the past three years would still be there. It was. This morning I had a chat with the WordPress support to obtain some custom CSS code for viewing platform specific dynamic sizing of my logo that sits on top of whatever header image I desire to feature. I got the code after ten minutes, and it looks ok to me. Also, with the switch to the new (officially supported) theme, it looks like the broken functions are fixed again. The search works.

Summarizing, the transition was much easier than expected. There is still some fine-tuning to do, but in general the new “Streets of Nuremberg” are live. I would be interested in your viewing experiences, what you like/don’t like and if the blog looks ok on your viewing platform (desktop/tablet/phone). Please let me know your thoughts in the comment section.

Now it is time to sit outside in the gorgeous spring sun and relax with a good cup of coffee. Then, after spending all thus time fixing the blog, it is hopefully back to street photography, which is after all the main purpose of this blog.

Wish you a great Tuesday!

  1. Oh man, I had to change my domain name last year and that fear of losing everything is so real! I can’t imagine changing my entire theme.

  2. I’m so glad that the transition ending up going smoothly! It looks great Marcus!! Sunshine and coffee…ahhhh. 🙂

  3. Love the new theme. Ah, you shoot a Olympus OM-D E-M1 ! I happened upon a talented PNW photographer’s blog today (https://bluebrightly.com) and she mentioned that she uses that same camera body. I love my Nikon film cameras, but I’ve never really taken to my Nikon DSLR, even with some decent lenses. Perhaps I’ll give the Olympus a try when a new camera is in the budget.

    1. Thanks, Marsi, I really appreciate your kind words! I also follwo bluebrightly’s blog and know we share the same camera 🙂 She does awesome minimalistic landscape and nature shots. If you go digital Olympus is a nice choice for sure. I’m going opposite and want to shoot some analogue now 🙂

  4. When I started my website I tried loads of the themes which come with WP, I’m sure it was changing weekly and still not being what I wanted…in the end I just went for a commercial theme and it did what I wanted straight out of the box!

    Well done for getting your migration done ok

  5. For some unknown reason that I can’t figure out I am unable to see any photos in your posts from January 28th up until this one. This is the first photo that appears in my reader. No clue!

      1. Yes, the title and 3 lines of text, but no photograph. It’s the same on my Mac, iPhone and the WP app. When I click on the title another page opens and still no photograph. What I see on this page is the text and below this ‘More in Streets of Nuremberg’. Here I see the title of two posts with images. Below this are the comments for this post.
        Today’s post, ‘time to relax….’ shows the photograph and it’s the first time I see one since January 27.
        Don’t know how to incorporate a screen shot in this reply or I would send you one.

      2. Thanks for your detailed feedback,. I belive I found the issue, had to do with the way the new WordPress version handles “Featured Images”. I think I fixed it now! Appreciate your help! Marcus

  6. It looks good to me, Marcus. I’ve been thinking of changing my blog them, too, but haven’t put much time into researching which one to use. How did you decide on Baskerville II?

    1. Thanks, Bruce, appreciate your feedback! I checked out all themes that WordPress offers for its plans (visible via the Dashboard). My requirements were that I was looking for a theme that gave me the possibility to display a header image and my logo, which limited the possibilities significantly. Then I wanted a multi column title page that adjusts contents depending on viewing platform (desktop, tablet, phone), which pretty much narrowed the possibilities down to Baskerville 2. Apart from the modern column design, it is not too different from what I used before. Hope this helps! Marcus

  7. Congratulations on completing the migration to your new theme, Marcus — it’s beautiful! Enjoy that well-deserved cup of coffee. 🙂
