The New Look of Helleneste kai Grammateus

I’ve given Helleneste kai Grammateus a makeover.  I was beginning to see the old theme too often on other blogs.  Also, there were some new features I wanted to employ here.  The updates and changes include:

  • A new theme – plus a footer!  I may change this if I can find/create a wide header I like.  But I like the green and blue background in keeping with the natural feeling of Hellenic Polytheism.  It was also much less boring than the other options available on a free account with WordPress.
  • Reorganization – 1) Adding the “More” tag to make skimming easier for you, 2) Narrowing the number of articles per page down to 3, 3) Now that I have a footer, and space in the header, I’ve employed widgets in an aesthetically pleasing manner:
    • In the Header you can get to general navigationPages, Categories, and the RSS feed.
    • In the Sidebar are more specific navigation options and Links – a Search field, options to subscribe by email or RSS, Tags (more specific than categories), Blogroll (with descriptions of each blog), Community Links, Downloadable Content, Forums, and Hellenic Polytheist Websites.
    • In the Footer are the Archives – of Top Posts, Recent Comments, and two ways to access the Full Archives.
  • In each post past and future:
    • Photos – from the public domain.
    • Links integrated into post content – to help explain certain terms and references.
    • Related articles – I hand-pick these for you, incase you want to read more about a particular issue.
  • Social networking links and sharing features (email and print) – if you like something I’ve written, please share it!  You are especially welcome to email and print rituals I’ve published, adapt, and use them!
  • Nero ratings – switched from stars to a simplified thumbs up/down.  Please endorse the posts you liked!

Do you like the new look?  Please post general feedback and suggestions here.  Thanks!
