As you can see this blog section of PreparedHam has a new look. The old theme was one of the standard WordPress themes that was fine to get the page up and running. But the old theme was not “responsive” meaning when viewed on a tablet or Mobile device(phone) you saw a miniature version of the PH site. Well because we are all using our phones/tablets more than our desktop/laptop platforms, there is a big move toward the responsive themes mentioned above.
If you look at www.preparedham.com on a desktop, tablet and a smart phone, the website software is smart enough to adjust its layout and make if more user/device friendly. Add to that Google is going to start whacking sites that are not responsive in the search rankings(I got nasty grams from them letting me know) I decided to bend to the pressure and make the change.
So after a “few hundred dollars” and two Genesis software add ins, PH is now with the program and responsive.
The next step is to either wait for Simple Machines(the forum software) to release the new Curve2 version which is said to be a responsive platform or to find a new responsive bulletin board backbone that is responsive. I hope Simple Machines comes through soon as the thought of migrating 9154 Posts in 1115 Topics by 712 Members to a new platform is keeping me awake at night.
So until I have to pull the pin on that grenade, you can at least enjoy the blog portion of the site on any platform.
Let me know how it is working for you.
