Well, I just spent the last 3 hours trying to improve navigation here. I finally got a “home” button that will be displayed on all pages, but the biggest time waster was trying to make a drop-down menu. I tried all sorts of “plug-in’s” and researched all types of code. The more I tried, the worse the frustration got. Then, duh, I decided to go back to the WordPress site and instead of putting “drop-down menu” in the search box, I put the theme name before what I was looking for. Many of the links just took me back where I’d already been, but then I found a little blurb about just drag-n-drop what I wanted where. Ah hah!!! It worked. Just 15 minutes later, I got the drop-downs. I still have some customizing to do, but that will have to be for another day (or week).

It is significantly more slower of a pace and much quieter around here. Three of the puppies have gone to their own wonderful families. The pups have their own page started, at least a name on a page right now, but it’s a start. The next task on this site will be to add the rest of the photos from the last 2 weeks onto the “puppy” page.

Thank you again to all the new puppy people families and for all the great feedback I’m getting on the look of this site.

Site updates

Coming soon will be not just continued puppy photos as they grow, but more photos will be coming for other of the Aussies here or from Joy’s previous litter.

7/6  I’m also working on changing layout, hope you all like the changes. If you visit us one time and come back in and see what looks like a different site, leave and then come back again, another look again it is not your imagination. It’s just me trying out new stuff. You will still see “Providence Australian Shepherds” at the top, so please bear with me as I play.

12 am  I’m giving up for the night with this new look. I’m not happy with it. I cannot get the blog page header to change for each page, the photos are flying all over the page, some photos won’t upload, the page that I do this typing on in this theme is much smaller than the previous theme. I understand that this is becoming the standard theme, but all the wasted space bugs me between the large frame (which I’m trying to change the background on it) and the wide space between the blog writing area and the edge of the frame. Oh well, enough for tonight. Maybe I’ll leave this theme up for now as it does seem easier to read and get to work on updating all the dogs pages. I apologize to all for being so behind in that project. I will start getting those photos up before I do anymore updating on the theme, but I will keep updating the “Puppy Page” as many of you have let me know how much you enjoy their photos and their progress.
