Today is a new day in design for Beyond Caffeine. I am finally moving on from the old ‘Cleaker’ theme that has run this site for a good while now. I need something fresh and clean, and I found what I was looking for in a new theme called ‘Amazing Grace’ by Vladimir Prelovac. Amazing Grace is now the default theme for the blog.
I was really drawn to the colors of the theme, as well as the design. The colors are (for the most part) from a soothing palette and I am quite happy with it. It has a lovely spot in the top right corner that is used purely to showcase photos I have found. They serve no practical purpose, but are very lovely and reflect the tone of the site. The photo that is shown is chosen at random, so hit ‘reload’ a few times, or click on the photo credits link to see all the photos in the list.
If you are not seeing the new theme, you may have a cookie set for a different theme on this site. You can view the theme by navigating over to the sidebar where you will see a link to the available site themes. This theme switcher is active on ALL the themes I use on this site (and will continue to be there in the foreseeable future). You can easily switch between the new theme or go back to using Cleaker if you would like.
As a side note, in future, if you see any theme that is flagged ‘dev’ in the theme switcher – be warned. That means it is currently something I’m tinkering around with to make work for my site – expect it to be quirky.
I hope you enjoy the new theme as much as I am, and remember that you can always use the theme switcher if you don’t like it.
