Changing themes for a WordPress website is incredibly easy. However, sometimes there can be slight problems in the transition. I had heavily edited and customized the prior theme’s code so that it would be better suited to this website.1
Changing the website’s theme has involved a few small tweaks2 :
- For about four days the Articles section was merged with the Blog section. This has been fixed.
- I’ve found a really great plugin that allows me to insert footnotes into blog posts.3 My previous attempts at inserting footnotes manually were either time consuming or incredibly clumsy. 4
- I’ve made minor alterations to the current theme – background colors, menu ordering, etc.
- Some people were separating their WCAB “legacy” number to ADJ number searches by semi-colons, rather than commas. I believe there’s really no sense in fighting users. 5 If a slightly different method makes sense to users, go with it. I’ve adjusted the WCAB “legacy” number to ADJ number search function so that you can separate by semi-colons or commas.6
- In printing out some Average Weekly Wage calculations, I discovered to my dismay that this website looked terrible when you tried to print it out. Worse yet, the website header, sidebar, and other navigation information took up nearly a page. This meant that a printout of a calculation might span two or more pages. I’ve since fixed this using some particularly cool CSS.7
