Starting the new website

I’ve been doing some online training on how to use the newest version of my web creation program and I have started to experiment with some different looks. Rapidweaver is the program I use. It is designed as a theme plug in type of arrangement. In other words, I pick a theme and it determines the overall look and organization of the whole site. It takes a lot of work out the process, and I’m fine with that.

My problem is that most of the themes I’ve seen so far have been overly… designed. I’m looking for a design that will get out of the way, not wow you with how “polished” it looks.I think I’ve found a candidate, it’s called mirage.

I like how clean it looks, and I like how it presents information. I also like it’s customization capabilities. I’ll ditch the background pattern, change some of the colors, and do something with that header to begin with. We’ll see how it goes. I’ve also thought about going super basic again with the “Sleeker” theme.

I like the basic look and the configurability. There are a lot of layout tools available to me so I think I could do a lot with it. I’ll keep trying to find the look I want. After that, it’s time for a general clean up and purge of useless pages on my site. I’ll let you know when it goes live…
