Yes, it hasn’t been that long ago since the Gecko’s Bark got a major thematic upgrade, and yet here we go again with some further renovations. Not a change in terms of the “feel” of the theme, but a big departure in terms of layout and navigation — plus some Web 2.0 bells and whistles.
Yes, the Gecko’s Bark will finally enter an age of modernity.
So if you happen to visit and things look a little different and perhaps odd/wonky, that’s why.
If you’re curious about what’s going on behind the scenes here at Barking Gecko Studios®, I’ve invested in a professional set of themes, and modified it to suit the Gecko’s Bark. What you are (hopefully) looking at is the PureType theme from ElegantThemes, used with a child theme in which I modified the CSS to a considerable extent, as well as the odd theme-related php file.
I wanted a modern yet relatively simple theme, and didn’t feel like investing in the time it would take me — not being an actual coder by trade — to develop what I wanted from scratch, especially since it was already out there. Why re-invent the wheel? I’m currently in the midst of developing what will hopefully become a network of monetized websites (a geek can dream), so investing in ElegantThemes seemed like a good course of action. So far, so good.
P.S. Sorry if you landed here looking for info on actual physical renovation, as opposed to cyber renovation.
