There’s always something…

      Comments Off on There’s always something…

I found a minor but annoying “feature” within this Ribosome theme that causes an author box to be automatically displayed if the biography section of the user profile is filled out.  Sounds great on paper, but there are some author box plugins out there in WordPress land that are much more robust and I’d be interested in them if I could just get the stupid default one to go away.

So, I went looking for another theme and I found one that was pretty awesome.  I implemented it, verified it didn’t create a default author box (it didn’t) and all looked well.  As an added bonus, it treated the header image and a site logo separately, so I didn’t have to combine the two in an image editor like I do now.  Things were looking spectacular…

Until…

I noticed that the new theme didn’t thumbnail the photos on the main page like the current one does and that ended up being a huge deal breaker.  “sad face”

Moral of this story – no matter what awesome thing you find, there will always be something “wrong” with it…
