For the blog, not for me!
I’ll be introducing a new look for JGIG that will be a bit brighter and more user friendly in the very near future.
[Edited to reflect current status.]
Okay – it’s up!
The new theme features drop-down tabs with menu items along the top of the page so you won’t have to scroll down to find the pages you’re looking for. The About tab has a drop-down menu containing the Statement of Faith, Comments Policy, How I Became Aware of the Hebrew Roots Movement, and About the Author categories. I’ve also indexed all posts on three lists; alphabetically, by topic, and chronologically. The Links tab also has a drop down menu according to category, so won’t take up so much space on the sidebar. The Glossary and Testimony tabs have all the same info, also with drop-down menus instead of nested pages in the sidebar. The tab/menu function of the new theme should make navigation much easier.
The new look has three columns, including left and right sidebars with a center column for post text. At the top of each sidebar is a ‘What JGIG Is’ and ‘What JGIG is Not’ summary, as some, mostly those who choose Torah observance, have misconceptions about what this blog is about and what is its purpose. Below those texts, you’ll find Recent Comments, Top Posts, a calendar and most of the other things you saw in the old sidebar. The click-on music has been moved to the Links tab and will be found under ‘Music’ in the drop-down menu there.
***** I’ve also added a copyright clarification at the bottom of the right sidebar. Some of you have been writing and asking me to post my stuff on forums because they have strict copyright rules preventing you from doing so. Much as I would like to, I can’t possibly post everywhere I’m asked, so I hope that a clear copyright granting permission for you to post excerpts from JGIG will allow you to do so where you are contending for the Faith. *****
I’ve been playing with the new theme, learning how to format everything, so hopefully the changeover won’t take too long. Just wanted to give you a heads up in case you’re actually reading the blog and things start changing. [Changeover complete. =o)] I’m sure that after the initial change I’ll tweak it a bit more here and there. Thanks for your patience. I hope you’ll find the new format to your liking.
