Well finally this blog has a current/new theme that is working – Twenty Twelve and I just upgraded WordPress core to 3.5 and see no problems!
Now I just need to update core in all my other installs of WordPress.. and then I should have some time to start adding photo galleries to this site.
This is all good.
And yesterday I looked at this site on a 7″ tablet to see how responsive Twenty Twelve was and it worked great, although the sidebar images did seem to ‘squish’ a bit. Will have to ask about that. And I looked around the web as well and found out that the simple white background shows up soooo much better on the tablets and phone, that if your audience uses those handhelds, then keep it simple for them.
