I’ve had to move the blog and re-install it several times because of hosting problems. WordPress has made it easier over the years but it is still difficult. As before, I lost all images with the re-install.
I liked, and read good things about, the newest version and this is it. And I don’t see any reason just yet to change the default theme–twenty eleven–because I like it too.
I have read over and over that to make changes to the theme you should create a “child” version. I don’t know why that is so essential because if what I have done stops working I’ll just install a new version of twenty eleven or something else.
I have made several changes to it: it is widened by 100 pixels; the post area has been made somewhat wider; the margins are slightly smaller; some widgets were removed and others added; and widget/sidebar contents are centered. Also, I have altered the menu and uploaded more/different images.
