I was so eager I couldn’t wait to release it – since yesterday afternoon I was hard at work on a new theme. I looked at your feedback (from one of the contest themes) and tried my best to incorporate a few minor things. You can see the result yourself. I had one other thing I wanted to include, Smashable Christmas Lights, but due to a bug that stopped all clickable links from working, I couldn’t keep it. Here’s what it looked like:
When you put your mouse over the lights, they break and make a flashing noise. The lights also break. If you’re curious as to how they look and operate, here’s where the code is from – you can see it in action here.
To improve the page loading time and make it easier if you’re looking for a certain post, it’ll show excerpts and the latest post (or pinned sticky post) at the tippy top. I was doing something similar with the “click to read more” but this is a bit better in my opinion.
I also added the falling snow (temporary for a few weeks) and a holiday music playlist. (temporary for about another week) I meant to put the playlist in a week or two ago but never had the time. If there’s any music you want added, be sure to let me know and I’ll see if I can! :)
I also recoded the navbar with more efficient code. Internet Explorer users shouldn’t see a black box around is as long as their browser is up to date.
Finally, if you see any theme bugs please let me know! There are one, possibly two things I still need to finish up – the header image changing every time you refresh and I’m going to see if I can make the background image switch every time you refresh – I know I can, I just need to figure out where the code goes. It’d be temporary that the background does that, too.
I hope you like it as much as I do! If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
