'Puter Frustrations

Like why doesn’t the image on this post, using ‘Adventure Journal’ theme,  size correctly at 300×210? I scaled it down from 500×130 but the old size keeps being displayed and pushing the accompanying paragraph below it instead of beside it.   Arrrrrrrrh! May have to switch the theme.

Picking out a theme for one’s website is complete chaos.  Why? Because there are thousands of WordPress themes. Of course, I would prefer a FREE theme, but many of them are out-of-date, i.e. they do not have many of the most recent features, like flexible size headings, feature images, etc.

Downloading and trying out each theme is a daunting and time consuming task.  It’s taken me several days and I still don’t have what I want.

I’ve explored WordPress theme frameworks which have features like drag ‘n’ drop, menu selection of feature, color sliders to quickly pick out colors, etc. but everything seems so complex and overwhelming.  HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SQL, artistic design, etc.

And before I know it, the whole day is gone; two days are gone…  What progress have I made? Very little.

And this damn keyboard on the Vaio laptop is horrible because if I touch an incorrect key, the cursor jumps all over the screen.  Adding to the problem is that if I barely touch the Vaio built-in laptop mouse pad, the cursor flies almost anywhere on the screen — usually toward the top of whatever I am working on and frequently I even loose my focus.

Using a search engine finds so much information — much of it not relevant and out-of-date.  I often wish retrieved data could be organized from new to older webpages.

It seems that the whole computer reality has gotten so complex that it is hardly fun anymore!  One has to know so much to get so little accomplished.  Or is it just me and I’m getting old?

All of  this information has given me a headache and it’s almost midnight, so I’m going to bed and forget about it all!
