Hemingway Bright!

Hemingway is a simple weblog theme by Kyle Neath aimed at giving bloggers a great platform on which to customize.

I was really impressed by this theme. This one really breaks the monotonous ‘bloggy look’ that all of us are quite used to by now. All of our themes have this header, a content area, a sidebar on the right (sometimes on the left), and a footer.

Hemingway, is the first of its kind, to bring a different look to a blog.

The version is too dark in color for me (I hope for many of you) and is kind of hard to read.
So I took the original version, and threw some light onto it.
Thats why I called it ‘HemingwayBright’ .

My touch up on this theme, resulted in

  • A Page Navigation at the top, which gets automatically expanded if you add new pages. It also shows the current page you are looking at.
  • A Post Navigation feature, when you are browsing a single post, it shows the links for previous and next posts and also a link back to ‘Home’.
  • The Ancillary Page at the bottom, shows the number of posts and comments your website has, so far.
  • Changed the Date formats to be more universally understandable

and some more minor things.

Header.php contained the meta tags, showing my name on it. It was a ‘copy and paste’ problem. I removed it now.
