I am working through a bunch of updates to my wordpress template and thought I would share the current progress. In the above image you can see what the template is looking like at the moment.
I am trying to make it clean and simple with most of the information and actions available at the top of the page. I am also planning to make a few changes in the future.
Left menu changes
I want to make the left menu to look similar to the following (from dev.to). I am thinking of only having a few options being Home, Reading List (the blogroll of old), Authors and Contact.
Right menu changes
On the right menu I was thinking of having social media links.
I need to look into this more but one of the big features I want from day 1 is commenting. Not sure yet if I will use the vanilla wordpress comments or something else.
