Theme update

I have recently been working on updating the theme on this site so that it feels comfortable for me to use, as I’m the one most likely to dive in and re-read the articles I’ve put in. In doing so, I have managed to strip out Twitter Bootstrap entirely, and put in my own CSS as I’ve needed it. It’s certainly not a complete framework, like Bootstrap, but it serves my needs, and I’m sure it’ll be updated over time.

Further to the visual changes, I’ve also added Disqus commenting. This is for three reasons:

  1. You don’t need a log in for my site or wordess, meaning anyone can comment,
  2. It’s decentralised, meaning that if Disqus notice a spam attack, they will deal with it, rather than me, and
  3. Because I couldn’t be bothered to write the php, html and css for comments, when Disqus fits well already.

The site has been confirmed as working on the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome. I haven’t tried anything else, but I may give Edge a go later.
