For the few interested in these sorts of things, the site template theme that I had been using for quite a while was deprecated, no longer receiving support or updates. While I put off moving to a new theme for a while, it had to happen. Unfortunately, there was no way to fully configure a new theme to match all the customizing I had done in the old theme (things like custom css controls specific to the them because they address unique labels). The only option was to take a lot of notes about style settings and then jump in with both feet. I managed to get things fairly close, even making some changes I’ve wanted to make for some time but could not because they weren’t supported in the old theme. I still have some work to do to add a few missing things, but the content is basically all there. Anyhow, just wanted to explain what motivated some of the changes (as opposed to sheer boredom with the appearance).
I'm sure you missed me immensely. All five of you. Between the demands of work and some under the hood adjustments, I haven't had an opportunity to post anything since September. I am pleased (or just relieved) to report that I have moved safely to SquareSpace hosting platform 7 without any major glitches thus far. I took the opportunity to fiddle with site design to make things ever so slightly cleaner to look at and easier to read. I may do more in the design area, but, for now, the plumbing overhaul is done.
Oh, and there are some cases begging for some special attention. I will take care of that forthwith.
Don't do what I did. Don't accidentally copy curly quotes when pasting some html code into a code injection area (a little under-the-hood work for authorship signals). Even basic html hyperlinks don't behave so well when you use curly quotes. Just sayin'.
