Another day, another Theme

My wife pointed out that the theme I was using, jQ wasn’t her favorite. So I looked around and found Mystique, which is beautiful (imho) and works well with what I want to display.

And then she noticed that the random Interesting picture from Flickr wasn’t working anymore, and I missed it too… (it’s sudden absence is why I ditched the Vigilance theme in the first place… and I later found out it wasn’t even related to Vigilance. Oops).

So now I’ve updated the Flickr Interesting photo code appearing at the top of my posts/pages. It’s now WP-Super Cache friendly, doing the heavy lifting behind the scenes via a JS call. Note to self: disable hotlinking on that file.

Now the site’s faster (Super Cache is enabled), and prettier (Flickr Interesting is back), and rounder (I added rounded corners to the image area… unless you’re in IE. Sorry.).

That’ll do for now.

Oh, and the reason the Flickr Interesting photos went away in the first place: my host updated the PEAR php library in use, and that broke phpFlickr, until I forced phpFlickr into using it’s own built-in edition of the PEAR files. Now wasn’t that just a bit more than you wanted to know?
