Art Changes Lives Is Now Responsive

If you fall, fall on your back. If you can look up, you can get up.

Darn… Technology, Love it or Hate it.

Maybe too long, but this is what has been happening, Google has changed its ranking system to take into account whether or not the site is responsive and it is serious about making the pages more mobile accessible. (source) So I had to do some research. Although, I am a designer and claim to be a web designer to boot. I needed to find a WordPress theme that worked for me. The WP’s 2016 Theme seemed to do the trick. I tested it, I found the transition was not going to be smooth. Ugh!

Well, after much hand wringing and fretting, I buckled down and took notes on exactly what I needed to do. The list was long. I was motivated into action when I saw my search engine rank drop. I am pretty happy with most of the changes. I have to restore a couple of galleries and make a few more tweaks, but Art Changes Lives is responsive and up and running.

Now I better start to grade and get my work done.
