Custom website layout enhances user experience

I recently inadvertently overrode my WordPress Theme on Dashboard at WordPress, and ended up with my custom layout – developed over the years by Walden Design and Maestra Web Design – replaced by a standard, off-the-shelf WordPress Theme.

With thanks to Walden and Maestra  – and with thanks to the fact I had a Dropbox backup of the code for the custom layout – I was back in business by the time the Canadian Thanksgiving was over.

I have learned three lessons:

  1. Be careful what you do on Dashboard at WordPress.
  2. The layout of a site has a tremendous impact on its readability, its user-friendliness.
  3. Google Analytics is great to check out every once in a while as the screenshot below indicates; I was delighted to know that people are reading my blog posts once again, now that the layout has been restored.
