Subsequent to my previous post, I am trying out a theme named Pitch. There are some features of this theme that I like very much but it has a number of shortcomings. One thing that I find awkward is the lack of post-to-post navigation.
(UPDATE: Just for LizH – I added a plugin to add Navigation buttons – I may not keep it as there is no tasteful grey option, but we shall see how it goes)
Pitch allows Project types and this makes a lot of sense in the context of this blog. I should like to use Projects for, well… my projects. On the other hand, I dislike the Project page layout, which pushes text over to one side.
A major problem with Pitch is that it enforces slide shows even when I specify that I want one of those lovely tiled mosaic galleries. I also dislike that it allows Featured Images but does not display them in the post itself.
On the other hand, it does display images beautifully, which is after what I was seeking.
UPDATE: Another bad point however is that the theme overrides the Jetpack Threaded Comments setting. I could live without a threaded arrangement if only there was a Reply to Comment option instead of simple flat commenting. How does one hold a proper conversation without addressing the right reader?
I have spent many hours on this today but sense that Pitch and I are ultimately set to be parted. I am of the opinion that the one perfect WordPress theme does not actually exist.
I’ll leave things as they are for a few days and see if we can all settle in. I would like your feedback – tell me if you love it, loathe it, or could not care less.
