We have a new theme! This triumphal news comes to you after a lengthy dedication to the Blue Memories theme and the Rounded V2 blue edition before that. Both served us well but now that we’re more comfortable with WordPress 2.3+ we decided to jazz up the blog with a new theme. Fulfilling that pair of shoes is Ocean Mist 1.2 by Ed Merritt.
Ocean Mist caught our eyes when researching themes for a new blog. Its easy installation, widget support, great sidebar, and more professional yet laid back look won us over. Being named Ocean Mist didn’t hurt either. Every theme we’ve used has a blue color scheme with a hint of the ocean, living in Massachusetts will do that to a fellow, and Ocean Mist expertly follows suit.
What does this new theme mean for you? Changes, obviously, but aside of that your experience at the CWF Game Cast will be easier and better. You will more easily find content. You can more easily subscribe to our RSS feeds (podcast and blog) through the sidebar. You will more easily know what is a link by the red box surrounding pics. You can more easily spot what categories an article belong in by the Categories list beneath each article. Want to read the full article, and not just the teaser? You can click on the big “Read More >>” button under every article. For the first time ever our links show a brief description of each link and how it relates to the CWF Game Cast.
All this newness hasn’t changed the great features you’ve always loved. The tags, comments, Print This Post, and Digg submission icons are in their same great place….under every single article. The search bar is still in the sidebar, you still log in at the top of the sidebar, and our polls still feature prominently in the sidebar.
Speaking of polls, we have created a new one soliciting your input on our new theme. Take the time to vote in it. For your pleasure, the poll is in the sidebar. Please vote and be heard.
