After several weeks of planning and careful testing, and consulting with the theme's developer, I have replaced this site's theme with a new one.
What do you think?
TBH I am not happy with the result, but I cannot go back. The old theme (Magazine from MH Themes) had to go. IThe developer hadn't updated it in 3 years, it never completely worked the way it was supposed to, and several features broke in recent updates. (Plus, when I first installed it I modified it in a bunch of ways that broke basic rules of good web design practices, and that fact continued to bug me.)
The only option now is to move forward. I'm going to edit the new theme so it looks better, and I would appreciate all critique and feedback.
What do you think should be changed?
