a new look … for now

After thinking of updating the look of this blog for a long time, I finally took the plunge yesterday.

I still might revert back to the old Journalist theme I've used for years, but for now I'm using the responsive SongWriter theme. That allows me to stop using the WordPress-provided Twenty Fourteen theme for mobile devices.

In switching to SongWriter, I changed the CSS so that nested ordered lists would use only numbers a la:

1. foo
 1. foo foo
2. bar

instead of intermixing letters. In other words, I replaced this in the "style.css" file:

ol {
  list-style-type: decimal;
  margin-left: 20px;
}
ol ol {
    list-style: upper-alpha;
}
ol ol ol {
    list-style: lower-roman;
}
ol ol ol ol {
    list-style: lower-alpha;
}

with this:

ol {
  list-style-type: decimal;
  margin-left: 20px;
}
ol ol {
    list-style: decimal;
}
ol ol ol {
    list-style: decimal;
}
ol ol ol ol {
    list-style: decimal;
}

Changing the theme also led to one change in the Syntax Highlighter Compress plugin because the font on my code snippets was too large for my liking with the SongWriter theme.

Under ".syntaxhighlighter textarea" in the "syntax-highlighter-compress/styles/shCoreDefault.css" file, I commented out the "font-size" property.

And hopefully those are all the changes I need or want to make.

For now.

Update, December 20, 2014: Just FYI, I learned about making WordPress child themes from this video and then made a child theme for the SongWriter theme with the ordered list CSS changes outlined above. This allows me to safely update the SongWriter theme without losing my changes.
