Addicts Housekeeping: Yes, I Reverted the Site Back and Here’s Why

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you…I have reverted the site back to the trusty tried and true version of TSTO Addicts we’ve all enjoyed for the last (nearly) 8 years.

Here’s why…

First, I’ve been growing increasingly frustrated with the new theme.  There were loads of things, visually, we weren’t able to do or have appeared the way we wanted them to appear.

Second, you guys OVERWHELMINGLY voted to change back.  It wasn’t even close…

And the whole reason I switched in the first place was because of complaints we were getting about the mobile version of the site.  So if you guys are good, I’m good.

And third, issues that we thought were issues with the theme (ie comment issues, likes not showing etc) were in fact NOT issues with the theme.  They’re issues with WordPress and would exist no matter which site version we use.

So, give all of that, I’d rather go back to tried and true.

  1. Thank you, much better 😊🙏

  2. Yay I can finally read everything again without the page cutting it off.

  3. As a visually impaired person this version is also much easier to see and navigate. So thank you

    • Now that surprises me! While I prefer this version, I would have thought the giant font on the other would have been easier for someone who’s visually impaired to see. Or do you use a screen reader? Sounds like maybe this format is more 508 compliant?

  4. Yes! Didn’t bother making a post about previous version. Figured you would go with what works..

  5. Alissa,

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you… have I said thank you??? I don’t feel like the page is yelling at me anymore – I actually found myself leaning back when trying to read your posts. 🙂 Thank you so much! It is beautiful!!

  6. Thank You Alissa, 😀👍🏻
    This works for me on laptop, tablet, desktop, smart phone (I’m having more fun adjusting to Android OS 11 since January vs WordPress – lol!) Using the Chrome browser.

    Yes there are perks if you create a WordPress Account, yes you can still be Anonymous (oh hey, here comes the Weekend, and that means Saturday 😀!)

  7. I forgot to ask… Is it just me, or do the left and right margins seem bigger? Seems like more white space on the sides than I remember from before…

  8. I love that the page doesn’t feel like it’s yelling at me now, lol! Thanks for checking in with your readers. 🙂

  9. Evil laugh needs some work, walking back, eveliningliy, lol Muahahahaha

  10. Woo, zoom in, my prescription isn’t that good, age thing and glasses are getting thicker 😂, looks good, clean, fresh and minute, but in saying that I will need to test all variables and submit my findings in a later post, TBC, huhuhuhu, evil laugh 😎
