New Look

Dr. Conspiracy

Dr. Conspiracy

Obama Conspiracy Theories has a new look as of today. The switchover has been made for primarily to fix some things (like nested comments!), but I was very impressed with the open feel of the text in this theme and the readability. Chris Wallace is the theme’s author (credits at the bottom of the page).

I would really like a bright white theme, more like a newspaper than a blog, but so far one that works and is typographically pleasing has eluded me.

    The new look is fantastic, what a pleasant surprise. The site is easy to read as the contrast is just perfect! Thank you!

    You’ve chosen a lovely look, and it’s _very_ readable. Thanks!

    Wow new look! It feels a little country. I guess it goes good with the hat. 😀

    I kinda like it !!!

    Very nice, Doc.

  6. It goes with my book shelves.

    It took several hours to fix this software and get it working with my content, time I couldn’t spend working on the content. I am really glad to get this over with. It’s a big relief. I expect nested comments are working OK (at least in my tests). Overall it feels pretty solid.

    Much easier to read. Thanks Doc.

    Congrats, doc. The new look is great! I don’t know if you were planning this for a while, but you don’t mess around. One little nesting problem and you overhaul the whole system. You are obviuosly a man of action.

    Are you looking for a job?

  9. Thanks. I set up a test blog a couple months ago for evaluating themes, but I got serious about it when the nesting problems appeared. I reviewed maybe 40 themes, finally narrowing it down to 3. As I’ve commented before, the nice looking themes always have something broken, and this one was no exception. Fortunately however, the problems were not so deep in the code that I couldn’t find them and the fix wasn’t so complicated that my meager knowledge of PHP (the language this blog software is written in) couldn’t deal with it.

    If I ever get back to Chicago, we should have lunch. I suspect it will be a much more interesting conversation than what transpires on the blog.

    It would be a pleasure. And yes, I’m much more engaging in person!

    Well done!☺

    Ironically it wouldn’t be surprising if some of the Obama’s birth conspiracy theorists are actually engaging and (Relatively) sane in person than what their comments would have suggest.

    Anonymity allows people to be a very different person compared to their normal personalities.

    PHP isn’t overtly difficult to work with. I do really like this theme though. Very nice look. Easy to read.

  14. Thanks for using one of my themes. It really looks great! Mad props on the implementation.

  15. Heavy says:

    Well, I’m just as adamant about my beliefs in person. It’s just that letters on a screen (Or page) cannot convey emotion. I’m also not the best writer, as you can tell.

    Dr.C I hope you don’t mind me doing this here. I am trying to post this up at every place I normally post at.

    Hey everyone, I just wanted people to know that Time Magazine has their “World’s Most Influential People in 2009” poll up, so go vote for Obama. He is currently at a low spot. So we need to bring our Cool-Cat-Mega-Hot President to the #1 spot.,28757,1883644,00.html
