A few days ago, Krista Stevens from the the Automattic team published a post showing what could be done with colour options to spice up various themes.
Krista is Editorial Team Lead at Automattic, editor at Contents Magazine, and former editor in chief of A List Apart.
[ I have followed A List Apart for years, and lamented the style change a couple of years ago, but it’s a great site – and I recommend anyone to take a look.]
One of the themes that was mentioned in Krista’s article was Writr, a theme I was using at the time (I have since switched to the Zoren theme.
I wasn’t completely happy with the Writr theme and I commented on Krista’s post as follows:
I just wish there was a way to take out or modify the #303030 horizontal dividing lines in Writr. They are not body background, but something else and they are – in my opinion – too wide and dark, and mess up an otherwise lovely theme…
I went just now to look at the reply to my comment, and my comment is still held for moderation.
So I took a look at the Writr demo and here’s what it looks like now. And below is my best Photoshopped attempt to show what it looked like ‘before’.
Maybe I got it wrong and the theme can be tweaked (without a CSS upgrade) to look like the ‘after’ version.
In which case, why not publish my comment and point out my error?
Maybe there was going to be a reply and I jumped the gun. In which case this post is not needed.
I’m going to post a link to this post on Krista’s post.
