Welcome to SF Signal 5.0!


If you’re reading this at, then you will have already noticed that SF Signal looks a bit different. That’s because we have installed a new magazine theme to replace the stock one we replaced a couple of months ago, which in turn replaced the old one we had been using for years. (If you’re reading this through the RSS feed — stop by and check out the new look!)

Why the update?

  1. This was a long time coming. The old theme was…old. Change is good…or at least that’s what the people who keep raising my insurance rates tell me.
  2. We wanted to update to a new theme that would see more frequent updates. The new theme we are using comes with good support and lots of cool features, like support for displaying on mobile devices and tablets. We’re quite pleased with the look and feel of the site. Do note, however, that the new theme means that we have to change the way we do things a little on the back end. We are still learning these features and will introduce them over the coming days/weeks. Some of the older posts may look less than stellar on an index page, but posts from this point forward will be the schnizzle.

Between bringing Kristin Centorcelli on as our Associate Editor, the new theme, and some things lurking in the wings, it seems like a great time for a version upgrade, so welcome to SF Signal 5.0!

    It’s a lot less crowded than what Windows 10 looks to be 🙂

  3. Looks very sleek, John 🙂

  4. It’s great. And it doesn’t seem to care how my browser is sized. That’s been an irritation for years. 🙂


  5. Looking good, John! Congrats on a successful launch!

  6. Looks great on my tablet!
