What the heck just happened???

Well, with it being a holiday weekend, and our 300,000th visitor and all, I thought it was about time to unveil our new look.  Many of you have mentioned how difficult it is to read white text on a dark background — and of course, you’re right. So that was the major reason for the new theme, but I also wanted to tinker with the look.

I still have tinkering to do and ideas to try, but nothing anyone would notice until its done.  At the very least, reading American Elephants should be a little easier on the eyes. I plan to continue changing the Header image from time to time as I have in the past. The Easter elephants are only temporary.

Two minor problems you may encounter for a little while:

1. hyperlinks in older posts will still be in white text as they were under the old theme, and

2. images in older posts may appear too large for the column.

But we will update those as quickly as we are able.

Please let us know how you like the new look, and how it works for you! If it is easier or harder to read, easier or harder to navigate, etc…If you like the old theme better, let us know. (I saved all the old code in case everyone hates the new look)

We are always looking to improve.  My hope is to make American Elephants more interesting and informative, but also more fun to read and visit. Please let us know what you like and what you don’t — it helps us improve. You can comment below, or use the contact link in the sidebar.

I like the new look very much. I wish I knew how to do things like that.
